I’ve had a bit time off classes until I got a diagnosis for new ailments. I’ve been a little hit and miss but Sarah never forgets. She had a chat with me before I started back and showed me alternatives for some exercises that I need to avoid. Each class I’ve gone too, Sarah always reminds me when there’s something I need to do an alternative exercise too. She checks in with me to see how I am and I feel safe in her hands. Classes are pretty large most times but she still remembers what’s wrong with EVERYONE and how certain moves will help a particular person. Can’t fault her! If you’re new to this and thinking about starting, Sarah is the instructor for you! ... See MoreSee Less

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

"Thank you so much for making my first ever Pilates class so enjoyable today. Sarah is fabulous at making you feel relaxed and I'm already looking forward to my next class. Even as a total beginner I didn't feel like I was out of my depth and I actually felt like I knew what I was doing! Thank you Perfectly Pilates."  - Deborah, Tyne and Wear

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

"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
