Perfectly Pilates

This session is based on Pilates and yoga movement but it’s faster and more intense to burn calories and improve your heart and lung health but still kind on joints.

It will burn a load of calories and boost your metabolism for the next 24 hours at least so you burn calories even as you catch up on your current box set and do your work tomorrow!

It’s really fun and your abs, arms and bum will be burning 🔥 but there's no circuits or running or jumping about! Like the sound of this?

You’ll only need a mat or blanket to work on for the floor-based second part, a cushion and a bottle of water.

Why not give it a try? It’s free and from the comfort and privacy of your own home.

FOLLOW my page to find out when the next session is happening and for information about paid packages for more class options.

IMPORTANT: This type of session requires some standing movement and mobility to safely get down to the floor and back up standing in intervals.

This free 30-minute session is based on Pilates and yoga movement but it’s faster and more intense to burn calories and improve your heart and lung health but still kind on joints.

It will burn a load of calories and boost your metabolism for the next 24 hours at least so you burn calories even as you catch up on your current box set and do your work tomorrow!

It’s really fun and your abs, arms, thighs and bum will be burning 🔥 but there's no circuits or running or jumping about! Like the sound of this?

You’ll only need a mat or blanket to work on for the floor-based second part, a cushion and a bottle of water and wear clothes you can move freely in and expect to get warm.

Why not give it a try from the comfort and privacy of your own home.

💗🥰 I absolutely love this... I’ve been sent this from a wonderful client and friend whose young son has joined in with one of my videos at home! So cute and he’s so focused!

It’s got me thinking how brilliant it would be to see some of your home workout videos of you and your family joining in. I do miss being with my team of warriors! And we’re building a bigger and stronger warrior team day by day! 🙏🏼

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...

Deborah

"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

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

"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
