As a mum myself, I know how hectic family life can get, and finding the time and energy to get to a regular exercise class can be a nightmare, especially when you have young children. This is why I decided to start LK Pilates and offer at-home private pilates classes.

With LK Pilates, there is no need to organise childcare, have a gym membership or remember to pack your trainers! I come to you, and you can workout in the comfort and privacy of your own home. All you need is a small space to roll out a mat and I will provide all the equipment. You can even share your class with your partner or friends to help spread the cost.

I also offer private Pre- and Post-Natal Pilates Classes, which are specifically tailored to meet the needs of Mums-to-be and new Mummies aiming to get back in shape, and all the better because your new-born baby can be right there with you!

So if you are looking for a more-relaxing way to exercise please do get in touch to discuss your requirements, I would love to hear from you.

Lara-Kate has been dancing since the age of two and a half.  Whilst at school she trained at the Crescent Academy in all styles of dance including Ballet, Tap, Modern and Jazz and went on to gain a First Class Hons. Degree in Dance and Culture at the University of Surrey where she specialised in Contemporary Dance and Ballet. 

In 2005 Lara-Kate completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in Dance at Secondary School level and worked at The Place, a world-renowned centre for Dance in North London. She went onto teach dance at Key Stage 3, GCSE and A Level at a number of Secondary Schools in and around London.

Pilates always played a major part in her dance training however, it wasn’t until after her son was born in 2010 that she truly valued the many benefits that Pilates can bring. Lara-Kate qualified as a level 3 mat Pilates Instructor and specialised in Pre- and Post-Natal Pilates after her own experience of pregnancy and child birth led her to take classes. As a new, full time Mother with no ‘window’ to escape for an hour or two to exercise on a regular basis, she found it very difficult to attend classes.  

Lara-Kate set up LK Pilates in 2012 to make exercise more accessible for people who, like herself for one reason or another, have busy schedules or are restricted to staying at home. The great advantage of these sessions is that they are carried out in the location of your choice; by yourself; with your partner or friends; with baby at your side; when your children are in bed or simply with the luxury of being in the comfort of your own home.
