Pilates is a form of exercise, developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. It emphasizes the balanced development of the body through core strength and flexibility. Pilates teaches body awareness which helps create efficient and graceful movement in every day life.
As well as helping correct bad habits, it compliments other types of exercise. Through postural realignment and increasing core strength it can be invaluable for back problems, weak bladders and general toning. Many find it an exercise regime that allows both mental and physical relaxation.

Sarah's Vinyasa flow harmonises breath with movement in a dynamic, energetic and playful way; encouraging you to find your edge in a gentle and supportive environment. Following specific alignment and timing principles you will systematically work and rejuvenate your entire body, cultivating balance, strength & flexibility ensuring all students will progress from where they started; whether complete newbies or advanced yogis. Typically the first half of the class builds to an invigorating peak and then slows right down for restorative seated postures which work into the deep tissue for greater physical freedom. Sarah always uses beautiful music and props to help students become familiar with their individual anatomy & get deeper into the asana, whilst skilfully fusing together the styles of Iyengar, Ashtanga, Yin & Jivamukti to deliver a holistic practice where all are welcome.
