with Sarah Littleford
Pilates integrates movement, breath and muscle control into what we call “compound” exercises which utilise more than one muscle group at a time in order to develop functional control such as when you walk, garden, or go about your day. These classes tend to be more flowing and allow ease of movement with control.
At Total Therapy Studios all of our non-clinical Pilates teachers have some of the best qualifications in the industry, are very experienced and have a multi-disciplined approach to their classes. Sarah holds a classical ballet diploma and has studied in Gyrosythesis, harmonics, structural anatomy, the Franklin method, and is also a qualified massage therapist. She’s worked alongside Physiotherapists and other medical professionals to help patients with her unique therapeutic Pilates approach. .
