we're all a little out of balance

Maybe your body has a strong side & a weak side, or you're thriving in your work life but not in your relationships. It's absolutely normal to experience imbalance in our bodies and our lives. In fact, we have to lose our balance in order to find it again.

Show me how



improve your balance,
improve your life

Balance requires a strong foundation, the ability to find the center, and a sense of playful curiosity when things get shakey.

Intentionally training balance helps us develop stability in our body and mind, leading to less injuries, more resilience to stress, and more energy for fun.

5 Tenets of Balance Training:

  1. Progress, not perfection
  2. Curiosity, not judgment
  3. Falling is fine
  4. Look for the growth edge
  5. Play with it!

“Sarah's training program was so fun”

“It was so effective at building my strength and confidence. She provides options for whatever level fitness you are at while encouraging us to push our individual limits. I can't overstate how informative, empowering, and easy to engage with she is!"

how does it work?

Balance Training is a six-week functional training program! 

You'll train from home (or office, garage, or anywhere with internet) following along with the video workouts, yoga practices, and mindset modules. 

My teaching style includes both accessibility & challenge, so expect lots of modifications for different ability levels and tons of encouragement to find the level that's appropriate for you.

In six weeks, I expect you to be psyched at how much your balance has improved... in your body and in your life! It really is incredible (and empowering!) how quickly our strength & balance can shift with intentional practice.

“this program took me
to the next level”

“It is rare to find such great explanations and details, which is especially helpful when trying new exercises. I’m excited and encouraged to see how strong I am getting. I’ve worked out consistently in gym classes for the last 15 years, but this program took me to the next level. Here’s to having the stamina to work and play hard."

we do this all through online training so you can fall as much as you want, without fear of judgment.

The falls are inevitable. It's what happens after you fall that's important. Can you recover, and begin again (maybe even with a playful laugh)?

hello, i'm sarah!

I am a mental health-informed adventure fitness trainer from Alaska. I founded Mind & Mountain because the confidence I built through outdoor recreation changed my life — and I want the same for you. 

Outside time is awesome, but it's not always easy. Often it requires us to dig deep, confront our fears, and rise to the challenge. Our experience of that challenge is influenced by our identities, privileges, and the state of our nervous system —and while that can be hard (to say the least), we can also learn to work skillfully with (and change!) these realities. 

That's why at Mind & Mountain, we're focused on helping you get strong, prioritize your mental health, have more fun outside, and build an outdoor recreation culture where everyone is welcome.
