Hello, and welcome to my website. My name is Sara and I have been  teaching fitness, but more specifically mind /body classes since 2008, and am fully qualified and insured. I come from a background in the performing arts, having trained as a dancer and actor in the past. I continue to work as a freelance performer whenever I can, but I also find great job satisfaction  through my teaching. I have seen how both Pilates and Yoga can quite literally transform people, in the way they look, behave and feel in themselves. I have been fortunate enough to work with dancers, actors, olympic athletes, the very young, and very mature, all shapes and sizes and all levels of experience.

From the total beginner to the highly experienced, both Pilates and  Yoga can benefit you in so many ways. I do not teach  ‘one size fits all’ classes. My objective is encourage you to achieve what’s best for you on any particular day.

I teach classes, small groups and one to one, all currently online.

Any changes to classes will be posted to my Facebook page facebook.com/sarasclasses4   You can also or follow me on Twitter @cardiffpilates  or on Instagram @saramcgaughey Thanks!
