reviews

"Love it! Sarah's instructions are clear and easy to follow with fun analogies that really help you understand what you are supposed to be doing. My personal quest to touch my toes will one day be realised 😄."

Katie

"After only 6 sessions I have gone from limited mobility (side effect of meds) to improved posture, less achy and so so flexible. Thank you Sarah for your online class as I was too self conscious to ever go to a class in a gym Absolutely brilliant."

Patricia

"Usually do Sarah’s classes at Shiney Row but have been doing her live and interactive classes via zoom. They’re fantastic for keeping motivated and doing pilates at home, it’s almost like having her in my front room. Thank you."
