About Me

My name is Sarah and I have always been an active person and enjoy exercise. I took ballet

lessons between the age of 4-19. I started attending an aerobics class

with my Mum at 16 and it was my instructor that suggested at 19 that I

train to be an instructor myself. Not knowing what career I wanted to

pursue I thought this would be fun until I figured out my career plans.

17 years on I am still teaching exercise classes and have come to the

conclusion that this is it!

I have completed many training courses within this time. The initial

course I took was exercise to music with YMCAfit which qualified me to

teach aerobic and body conditioning classes.  (A full list of my

qualifications are at the end of this page.)

Over the years my passion for Yoga and Pilates have developed and I am

now specialising in these two areas and have undertaken additional training.

In 2019 I trained as a 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Instructor doing a course

that is accredited by Yoga Alliance.

I also completed the APPI (Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute)

Pilates course which is a rehabilitative Pilates method. It takes the

classical Pilates exercises and modifies them so people who have injuries

or medical conditions can take part in Pilates. This will help aid their recovery

from injury or manage their condition. I decided to take the exam at the end

of the course and I am now a qualified clinical Pilates instructor.

I work as a freelance instructor teaching at various health clubs and community centres and I have set up several pay as you go Pilates and Yoga classes in Kelvedon, Feering and West Mersea.

I am available for small classes with a group of friends (3-6) in the comfort of one of their houses at a day/time that suits.

I also offer Personal Training sessions in the comfort of your own home either by yourself or with a friend if you have the same goals and have a similar level of experience. 

I take regular continuing professional development courses each year to stay up to date with my training.
