ABOUT ME

Dr. Sarah Court, DPT, ERYT

I’m Dr. Sarah Court, and I’m a Doctor of Physical Therapy, a movement mentor, and a yoga teacher trainer. I’m the creator of Quantum Leap Community, a continuing education online mentorship group that helps movement teachers methodically and clearly understand how to work with their more challenging clients while staying within their scope of practice. I also teach public workshops and teacher trainings internationally, bringing together the worlds of yoga, strength, and neuromuscular exercise. Most recently, I created yoga and movement content for the Headspace meditation app. I live in Los Angeles, and split my time between teaching and clinical rehab work.

  • Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Mount St. Mary´s University
  • Bachelor’s Degree in Art and Archaeology from Princeton University
  • Creator of Quantum Leap Community
  • Co-creator of Movement Logic Tutorials
  • Yoga Teacher Trainer
  • E-RYT 200

Your teaching is truly inspirational. Thank you for all I learned, you managed to make one of the most inactive people around excited to not only exercise but find balance in an otherwise kaleidoscopic world.

Recently, I posted a question on Instagram: what do you think is the most important job for a movement teacher? I got a lot of great responses from you, most of which cited helping students feel better, gain confidence, move well etc.What's the Uber-skill (not a car service) in achieving all those things? Communication.If your students don’t understand you, that’s your problem, not theirs.Watch my video to see some examples of not great teaching that I have experienced and that may be all too familiar to you, and for my suggestions on what to do when you're not making yourself understood!Do you have go-to tricks for this? I'd love to hear about them in the comments! ... See MoreSee Less

Have you had a student who won’t stop or modify what they’re doing, even if it hurts? I see this all the time in the clinic, when someone (for example) loves running, but now they have hip pain, and they want their hip pain to get better, but they don’t want to stop running. I used to see it as a yoga teacher when people wanted to practice every day, typically the vinyasa/power styles, and they had pain, but weren’t willing to reduce or change their yoga practice. It can be that the movement is a meaningful part of their identity - if I’m not doing yoga every day, can I call myself a practitioner? Or sometimes it’s the ONLY exercise that they like and will stick to, or it has a bigger impact on their life as a form of community, etc. Ultimately, the person is going to do what they want. (It’s so annoying that people won’t just do what you tell them to do). What the video for my tips on negotiating this! ... See MoreSee Less

We’ve probably all had students who have been told that they should never do a certain movement, or they are especially sensitive or fragile. So how do we work with these students?
