Don’t forgot your water at classes! Even though we’re not jumping around or getting a cardio workout in, we’re sill doing full-body weight bearing, walking planks, intense exercises so you will still sweat a little you will need to replace the water you lose throughout classes. It’s just so warm. Please bring water to classes especially in the summer months. It’s so easy to get dehydrated and feel a headache starting in this weather.
Stay safe guys and “move well every day”! 👍🏻

Phew... have we got through this warm week unscathed? What fab but sticky weather. It’s been hard to get a good night’s sleep this week hasn’t it?! I wanted to say well done to those people who have rocked up to classes despite the heat. Ready to do some work and build your deep strength and flexibility, and have a well-deserved relax too. Good on you and you’ve kept me going when I just felt like it’s too hot for this!!! Heaven knows you could have been taking time out in your garden, the beach, walking in woods etc. etc. and no one could blame you for doing those things when you get the chance. It’s not always possible to keep classes running through summer with low numbers so I appreciate you for choosing to be at my class and for keeping with your exercise routine 🙏🏼 💕 ...

I also do tailored one-to-one and small classes if you have specific areas you'd like to work on or perhaps you just prefer a smaller or private session to a group class.

Call, text or email me to arrange or find out more.

What My Clients Say...

Yvonne

"I've dabbled with Pilates before but never stuck with it for various reasons. However, once I started attending Sarah's classes, what a difference! I'm hooked! I really enjoy the classes - Sarah is so knowledgeable but explains it in such a clear way, it makes it easy to follow and to do the exercises correctly. The classes are very relaxed and not without humour which is lovely. I am already starting to feel "looser" in my neck and back and I'm definitely aware of my posture and how to maintain correct posture. Myself and two friends recently had a private session with Sarah. This enables her to tailor the Pilates to each individual with their various issues with the back, shoulder, balance etc. It was excellent and I would recommend it!" - Yvonne, Hexham, Northumberland

Michael

"I'm a solictor who has been really suffering with neck and back pain since late 2014. It got to the point where it impacted on my enjoyment of my day to day life. I tried physiotherapy, rest, massage, and even acupuncture, none of which did much, if any, good.

By the time of my first 121 with Sarah I had given up on trying to find a solution and had just become accustomed to being in pain all of the time.

I felt an improvement after my first session with Sarah and after a few sessions we found the cause of my problems, and I now have a regular set of exercises which keep them at bay. Whenever the trouble flares up again I simply increase the amount of Pilates exercises I do. 

I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough. Her thorough, methodical, and exacting approach has resulted in a huge improvement in my symptoms, with the situation continuing to improve with every passing week." - Michael, South Tyneside

Andrew

"I started attending Pilates classes through Perfectly Pilates as it was recommended to me by my osteopath. At the time my back was damaged and weak, my left leg couldn’t hold my weight as its strength had all but gone, and I hadn’t done any serious exercise in years. I wasn’t in pain (my osteopath had fixed that), but I was certainly in my worst shape in years. Thanks to Perfectly Pilates, and specifically to Sarah, that’s all changed.

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, and as a result she’s used Pilates to focus on building my strength and range of movement back up in a safe, risk-free environment.

Don’t get me wrong, Pilates is NOT an easy workout. You will ache after an hour with Sarah, as you would after any exercise class or gym session.

So, 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 Wilkinson feels like ten minutes. Thank you Sarah. I’m stronger, fitter, healthier and happier thanks to you and your classes. It’s always a pleasure. Never a chore.” - Andrew, Sunderland
