Special Interest in Dance Specific Injury and Rehabilitation, Yoga Therapy

Sarah grew up in Toronto, Ontario where she studied classical ballet at the School of Canadian Ballet Theater, as well as at DanceTeq at the National Ballet of Canada. Her love of dance and movement sparked an interest in yoga, and Sarah has been a certified yoga instructor since 2010. Since moving to British Columbia, she can often be found participating in ballet classes at Harbour Dance, or in yoga studios across the city.

From dance and yoga grew a curiosity about human anatomy, injury prevention and rehabilitation, which led Sarah to study physical therapy at the University of Toronto. While at U of T, Sarah was able to apprentice in various settings, including working with young children with neurological conditions, working with older adults recovering from joint replacement surgery, and working with professional ballet dancers as part of the Dancer Wellness Program at the National Ballet of Canada.Sarah Kantarzhi ballet point photo Sept 2016

Sarah believes in a holistic approach to treating each patient. She believes that each person requires different things from their bodies and experiences injury differently. As such, Sarah believes that each client should be assessed and treated to meet the specific needs of their lifestyles and their individual bodies.
