MIND BODY MAT PILATES
A BIT ABOUT SARAH
I am an Award Winning Level 3 VTCT certified Pilates Instructor, with specialties in Common Orthopaedic Conditions along with Pilates for Antenatal and Postnatal, Kids & Teens and Runners & Cyclists. I'm also qualified in Barre ad TRX suspension training methods.
I'm not your typical "fitness fanatic". I first discovered Pilates in 2009 when I was looking for rehabilitative forms of exercise to manage the symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. 13 years down the line and I'm more passionate than ever about the benefits of Pilates. This unique form of movement has aided the quick recovery from a number of injuries and kept me away from expensive Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Chiropractors!
In my spare time, you'll usually find me by the sea or roaming the countryside with my husband and our dog, Oakley.
Suitable for all levels and abilities, even those completely new to Pilates.
Mixed Ability Matwork Pilates classes consist of exercises using body weight. Exercises can be modified or adapted to suit each individual so that everyone gets the best from the class! These fun and dynamic classes are held in Hedge End and Hayling Island.

I am really enjoying Sarah’s classes. I’ve been to loads of classes over the years but had never done Pilates. It is clear that she really plans each class to help you progress, building on what you have learnt and able to do. Sarah gives you different options whatever your ability! It’s been great using some of the techniques in other classes I attend. Great class, thanks Sarah!
Sarah has taught me so much in just a few weeks and I feel so much more confident. she is professional, organised and helps people to reach their goals. she is also very kind and encouraging
I can not recommend Sarah and her Pilates classes enough. You are immediately made to feel welcome. No matter what the exercise it’s explained fully and Sarah is at hand to demonstrate and help. Every class is different with a theme and it’s made enjoyable whilst understanding your body and how the exercise benefits you.
