I'm a Qualified Level 3 Pilates mat instructor who has been practicing Pilates for more than seven years. I'm passionate about exercise being safe, challenging, effective and fun. I believe you should feel stronger, leaner, more mobile and 'loose' in your joints and muscles, and have tons more energy after any workout;
and that's what I offer.
Pilates is a low-impact but highly effective for of exercise. It's more about strength from the inside-out - working your deep core muscles to support your skeleton and the superficial muscle groups. It is fantastic for injury prevention and rehabilitation, improved posture, flexibility and core stability, as well as sculpting a lean and toned body.
I am so passionate about Pilates and safe it challenging exercise.
Having various medical problems, fibromyalgia, ME, etc I was a bit worried about how much I would hurt doing pilates. I took a free taster session and now I’m hooked! 6 classes later and yes, I’m still in pain and exhausted but my core is so much stronger and movement is a lot smoother. Sarah’s class is fun, educational and so worth pushing yourself to attend! Mind and soul I’m happier, thanks Sarah xx More...
I must admit that I was a bit dubious about Pilates. Not knowing much about it, I had kind of tagged it as being 'just for women'. A very good friend is a regular and encouraged me to try it, promising that I would see a benefit for my dodgy back. I attended a taster session a few weeks ago and was immediately hooked. I couldn't believe the effort I was putting in, it really is a good work out, but so different to anything else I had done. Sarah is a brilliant instructor who somehow manages to tailor the classes to suit all levels. I was mightily relieved to find another couple of blokes there and we have a chuckle listening to each other grunting and groaning as the evil Sarah puts us through the various stretches. I can absolutely feel my back loosening up as well as other joints and some muscles I didn't even know I had. Thank you Sarah! More...
really enjoyed it. so friendly. thank you
Sarah is very friendly and encouraging, as are the others attending the class. I always feel better after a class and glad I attended.
Two sessions in from the holidays and feeling amazing. Thank you Sarah
Just finished the 2hr Foundation Workshop with Sarah & I thoroughly enjoyed it. Cannot wait to start classes on Tuesday & Friday
I attended a great 2 hour workshop this morning to introduce me to Pilates and get me ready for class sessions. Sarah explained things really well and was a patient teacher . .. can’t wait for my first proper class! More...
I started Pilates with Sarah on 12th October doing 8 X 1:1 classes. We've skipped a few weeks due to other commitments so I've just finished class 6. But oh my word, what a difference in such a short period!The main reason I joined was due to having a very weak pelvic floor since delivering my baby boy a year ago. After months of physiotherapy and no improvement (and still not sure if I could even "find" my pelvic floor) the next option was going to be surgery. Until a friend recommended Pilates.Not only has Sarah helped me fix my pelvic floor (I've had terrible cold this past week and I no longer fear coughs and sneezes), I feel like my posture is better (people keep saying I've lost weight and I have a little, but I think it's mainly I hold myself better), my back hurts less, I used to get leg cramps after wearing heels, yet I've worn them a lot recently for work and nights out with no issues. Pilates was definitely the exercise I needed.Sarah is patient and understanding, and explains the physiology behind each exercise, so you learn WHY you're positioning, stretching and breathing in a particular way, not just parroting a movement. I am now a huge advocate of Perfectly Pilates and will tell anyone who cares to listen! More...

Sarah is a lovely instructor who makes you feel at home. She’s professional and keeps you right but also has a caring touch. She remembers what everyone’s ailments are and advises each person wether they should do an alternative to certain exercises. It gives you confidence. This is the first time Iv ever taken a class in anything as I was quite shy going on my own and also worried in case I took poorly in class. I should of done it sooner!! More...
Pilates is one of the best forms of exercise you can ever do. So beneficial. Can also be fun. I absolutely love it and although Sarah at Perfectly Pilates happens to be my daughter I have to say she is absolutely brilliant. X
I was recommended Sarah from Perfectly Pilates by my osteopath who felt that she would be able to help with a very weak and damaged back and leg.
And I’m so glad I started taking her classes.
Sarah is a brilliant teacher. She’s engaging. Her classes are fun. Her knowledge of the human body and how it works is up there with any physio I’ve ever seen.
If you want a toned, strong body, this is for you. This is a real workout. If you’ve tried other forms of exercise and been bored or not stuck at them, then this is for you. An hour with Sarah feels like ten minutes! More...
