Sara Cunningham Pilates

Sara has always been into fitness and health until she turned 30 when she broke her neck and just stopped. She recovered but was very cautious about moving her body which created poor posture and feeling of stiffness. However, it all changed when she heard about Pilates exercise so joined a local class and it has had her hooked ever since.

 She qualified as a Body Control Pilates instructor in 2004 and more recently took on more qualifications to teach BASI Pilates and studio equipment such as the reformer. Sara regularly attends workshops and training courses to ensure she is up to date with the latest ideas and innovations.

 Sara’s hobbies are anything outdoors whether it is Nordic walking, cycling or running and she attends Christ Church every Sunday.
