Kara – MEd, PGCE, BA (Hons)

Hi I’m Kara and I am passionate about body movement – and in particular, Pilates. I fell in love with movement, and the incredible lengths to which our bodies can go, long before I began my life as a Pilates Teacher.

As a small child I started ballet at The Thompson School of Ballet and at seven I began gymnastics, ultimately competing at National Level. Following a sports injury I eventually found my way to Pilates, reaffirming my love of movement and the astonishing complexities and abilities of the human body.

I have studied Pilates internationally under a variety of highly-skilled specialists. I am especially interested in Hypermobility, Pelvic Health, Pilates in Pregnancy and Pilates in Older Age.
