Sarah Venables- Physiotherapist
I am British by birth, spent all my childhood in South Africa, moved to the UK where I studied Physiotherapy and have lived in the UK, Thailand, New Zealand and moved to Australia in June 2013! My husband, I and our two teenage children hope on making Cleveland home where we "live happily ever after...."
My UK physiotherapy experience includes sports injuries, paediatrics, cardiovascular, neurology and both adult and paediatric rheumatology. I have always been sporty, fit and healthy, until.... I had my first child 18 years ago. I struggled with pelvic and lower back instability throughout the pregnancy and needed back surgery after her birth. This started my passion for Pilates as I learnt how to hold my body together. It took time, but 3 years later I went back and did it all again! This time my pelvis was so much better and my recovery post pregnancy was really quick, thanks to continuing with Pilates! Pilates continues to be an important part of maintaining my stable pelvis and lower back.
I have been teaching Clinical Pilates Classes and offering 1:1 tuition (Clinical- modified to cater for and assist with rehabilitation of those with injuries and pathology) in the UK, New Zealand and Cleveland, Australia for over 14 years. My background in physiotherapy is the backbone of my teaching style and clinical application of Pilates Exercises.
