Teaches: Pole

If you asked Sarah in 2011 to do a forwards roll or even touch her toes, she would have laughed and then cowered in the corner. Having proudly never attended a single PE lesson, it’s surprising that Sarah agreed to be dragged to a pole fitness class during her post-graduate degree in 2011. Since then however, Sarah has fallen in love with the art, the people and the community and subsequently developed a particular passion for flexibility training.


Sarah has performed pole in numerous competitions and shows, and has been a member of the organisation team for Pole World Festival since 2016.  She hopes to show that it is never too late to start learning new skills and loves helping people achieve their goals. Aside from teaching, Sarah is a full-time lawyer, avid reader, sun worshipper and can be bribed with red wine.
