Sarah Doherty was first introduced to the Pilates method in 1997 whilst studying at Laban, graduating in 2000 with a BA (Hons) in Dance Theatre. She qualified to teach Matwork from the first Pilates Foundation matwork course at The Place in 2001, and completed her training in 2003 with Anne-Marie Zulkahari and Hana Jones, both of whom continue to be a strong influence in both her personal and professional practice.
Sarah ran a busy studio in Woodbridge, Suffolk between 2003 and 2008, closing it when she became a mother. She maintains a small private teaching practice and has been committed to developing a network of support for teachers in East Anglia; organising and hosting a series of workshops and mentoring various students and newly qualified teachers. Sarah has also assisted Anne-Marie with her Teacher Training course at Pilates and Yoga Movement.
