Sarah Nikolovska has been an active member of the health and fitness industry for nearly 20 years. In 2012, Sarah founded Form & Function, a private training experience that offered clients an integrated approach to health, exercise and physical rehabilitation. She then expanded on that concept in 2018 by creating The [RE]Centered Movement, a professional collective whose members seek to integrate the concept of health into every aspect of daily life; the body, mind, our relationships and even the spaces we inhabit.
Sarah’s vision incorporates movement, healthy eating, emotional healing and clean, responsible living. While her background is in biomedical science, she holds a bachelor’s degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology from Cornell University and a master’s degree in Neurorehabilitation from world renowned Guttmann Institute, Sarah's devotion to holistic wellness and healing has led her to study many complementary bodywork techniques. She holds multiple certifications including those from the NASM, ACSM, NSCA, PMA, and over 600 hours of Pilates mat and apparatus training. Sarah has also studied Muscle Activation Techniques under Greg Roskopf, and a is trained practitioner of Auricular Chromotherapy and Chromotherapy with Cerebral Integration Technique, two techniques specifically geared toward recovery from emotional trauma and anxiety.
"Whether it is physical or emotional, my clients often come to me in pain. It is up to me to have as much knowledge and as many tools at my disposal as I can, not just so that I can offer them solutions, but so that I can actually understand what is going on inside their bodies." - SN Helping people free themselves from pain and achieve new levels of physical health and wellbeing is not only Sarah's goal, it is her passion.
