Sarah Birmingham Pilates Owner & Teacher


I’m Sarah Janes – a fully comprehensive 3rd generation Classical Pilates Teacher, owner of Birmingham Pilates studio and founder of our sister studio, VIPilates where we offer private Classical Pilates lessons and small group classes on the Classical apparatus.

My passion for Pilates developed after I took classes over 12 years ago. In 2017 I met and studied under Kirk James Smith (a second-generation Pilates master trainer) from the classical Pilates Centre in Bollington, Macclesfield.

This is where my vision to help others improve their health and lifestyle through Classical Pilates was born. My passion is helping clients make inroads into their Pilates journey no matter where they are at. I love seeing my clients’ mindset change and their confidence soar because of connecting their mind and body through the classical Pilates method. 

My belief is that movement heals and you are on an incredible journey where you never get it done and you never step into the same workout twice. I hold the space for my clients to make changes to their body from the inside out. It comes from the mind first. 

I am always studying and practising with my own body and my promise to my clients is I can help them make the changes needed to get long lasting results. With the continuous guidance of my mentor Kirk James Smith, as well as serving my vast client base, I am now moving into mentoring other teachers who are interested in learning the classical Pilates method. 

My absolute passion is sharing the knowledge and resources I have acquired over the years of my own experience and putting into practice helping teachers bridge their knowledge from where they are currently at to understanding more about the Pilates Method alongside offering exciting teaching opportunities.


Starting Your Pilates Journey

New Client Intro Offer > Group Pilates Class or Private Lessons > On-going Monthly Memberships

Mat classes every week, Monday - Friday!
Includes Classical Mat (45min), Lunchtime Mat and Mat Express (30min)

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced practitioner, our experienced instructors will guide you through the Classical exercises and their proper order. This will not only help you build strength and flexibility but also ensure that you perform each exercise with precision and control.

One of the key benefits of our studio is the use of apparatus. This specialised Pilates equipment, such as the Tower, Reformer, Cadillac, and Chair, provide support and resistance, allowing you to target specific muscle groups and deepen your practice.

Booking your first Private 1:1 Pilates Lesson

Exercising under the guidance of  our knowledgeable instructors can help you refine your technique, deepen your understanding of Pilates principles, and take your practice to new heights.

Private lessons offer a personalised and tailored approach, allowing you to embrace the power of Pilates in a comfortable and supportive environment. You can book your first 1:1 private Pilates lesson or share with a friend. Private Group Lessons can also be arranged.

Continuing your Pilates Practice

Consistency is key when it comes to Pilates, and our Private 1:1 Pilates Lesson Packs and Group Reformer Pilates Packs can provide the structure and motivation you need to chieve your Pilates goals.

With small groups and Private Lessons that incorporate Reformer, Tower, Cadillac and other small apparatus, you will receive attention and guidance to help you progress quickly and safely. Our private lessons and group classes will help you build a strong foundation and achieve your goals in no time!

Private lessons allow you to focus on specific goals and address individual concerns, while group classes offer variety, social interaction, and a sense of camaraderie.

The intensity and precision of private Pilates lessons can enhance your performance in group workouts, while the energy of group classes can add an element of fun and inspiration to your private practice.

Ongoing Pilates Monthly Memberships

Are you looking to deepen your practice and take it to the next level? 

By committing to monthly private Pilates lessons or group classes, you will be able to add new challenges, depth and layers to your practice.  Consistency is the secret ingredient that unlocks its full potential. While it may be tempting to occasionally squeeze in a class here and there or only practice when you feel like it, committing to regular Pilates practice is where you will truly see the best results. 

Classical Mat Pilates

Our Classical Mat Pilates classes are perfect for healthy bodies that want to feel stronger, more energised, improve stamina and flexibility. Whether you’re a beginner or experienced participant, our classes will challenge your body and mind in new ways!

What is "Classical Pilates"?

There are so many Pilates based and Plates inspired variations that bear no resemblance to each other, yet they all claim the name "Pilates"...

At Birmingham Pilates Studios we believe in Pilates the way it was intended. We teach the same system created by the founder Joseph Pilates—with nothing added and nothing taken away. 

The results, benefits and transformations that people talk about are all true! Classical Pilates really does promote improved joint health and better muscle balance and it’ll keep you looking and feeling younger, too. 

But you have to do the work. There’s no magic wand. And that’s where we come in. We help you develop your own Pilates practise so you can get stronger, move better, improve your posture and increase your vitality. 

Owned by Sarah Janes, a fully comprehensive 3rd generation Classical Pilates instructor, Birmingham Pilates Studios is the sister studio of VIPilates in Four Oaks. Meet Sarah and find out more about her passion for Pilates here

I love a good Pilates quote!

By a strange twist of fate, the name Pilates is now in the public domain as a generic term. You can stand on a rock twirling a hula hoop and call it Pilates. And some do. There are so many versions of Pilates that not only the general public, but the medical profession as well, are confused. There are so many Pilates based and Plates inspired variations that bear no resemblance to each other, yet they all claim the name. This does not mean that they are all bad, Quite the contrary, some of them are extremely good and much needed. But they are not the exercise method created by Joseph Pilates.

... Contrology* is not "medicine" or even "physical therapy" . For it's aim is not specifically corrective but generally body building and co-ordinating. Hence it's uses are neither "patients" nor "treated". Each STUDENT is given as nearly as possible the same regimen and in kinds and amounts equal to his or her requirements under careful supervision. And only if approved by his or her family physician.

*Contrology is the name Joe Pilates gave to his exercise system. It never caught on in his time and it’s unlikely to any time soon. More’s the pity – it’s a perfect name for the Method.
