Bootybarre is a fun, energetic workout, fusing techniques from dance, Pilates, and yoga that will tone, define and chisel the whole body. Bootybarre is the perfect combination of strength and flexibility with an added cardiovascular element utilising the barre.
Bootybarre focuses on proper biomechanics for a safe and well-structured class that can be modified for any fitness level. Bootybarre was created by celebrity trainer Tracey Mallett in 2009, and she has taken it to over 25 different countries and taught thousands of instructors who now teach Bootybarre in studios and spas globally.

Vinyasa Yoga is a discipline that utilises postures and breathing techniques. This form of yoga offers a range of health benefits as it encompasses all areas of mind, body and spirit.
Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. In Vinyasa Yoga each movement is synchronised to breath.
Vinyasa allows for a lot of variety but will almost always include sun salutations – a sequence of postures done in succession, one flowing into the next.
Bbarreless is about connecting the mind to the body, so that you not only strive to move with precision but also have FUN. Classic barre exercises have been adapted to be performed in the center of the room, either standing or on the floor. You will challenge the core for balance and total body proprioception. Dancers have performed floor barre for generations as it allows them to explore new movements and gives them the strength to move with elegance and ease, utilising the floor for support.
Bbarreless is broken down into four blocks with two cardio fusion intervals, a short warm-up and simple stretches to complete a total-body workout. Each block has a unique focus and goal that incorporates strength, balance, power and flexibility movements. Two of the exercise blocks will use either a band/ball or both, to emphasise control of the body, assist you to do the exercise correctly and/or challenge your body awareness.
Bbarreless moves to the music, enhances your flexibility and challenges your body to move effortlessly like a dancer!
Mummy & Baby Pilates/Barre
I absolutely adore teaching this class especially as my four babies aren’t really babies anymore, which means I get to have my fix and enjoy the cuddles.
Mummy and baby is all about having fun with exercise. You are on a journey and should enjoy every bit. Every mum has their own worries, whether they’re a new mum or, like myself, a mum of four. Even if you think the mum next to you looks like she has it all together, that may not be the case.
Always ask “How are you?” You won’t believe how much that could make someone’s day… Anyway moving on – sorry, you will soon get to know I talk a lot!
Your body undergoes huge changes through pregnancy and childbirth. I have created a class for you and your little one that focuses on three main areas: back, abdominal muscles and the pelvic floor. We focus on rebuilding these three key areas, at a pace that suits you. At LPO we don’t put baby in the corner! We start the first half of the class at the barre – the babies love being close to mummy in their carriers and having a gentle little bounce. Not only that, they get to watch mummy in the mirrors.
The second half of the class is mat-based Pilates. We create a cozy area in the centre of the class while mummies get a little me time, and of course if at any point baby wants to join in we are ready and can create practice with baby involved.
We always advise you wait until your six-week check-up before exercise. If you have any questions please email or give me a call. See you soon. x
One-to-one & private groups
In addition to group classes we also offer private one-to-one or private groups where you can work out with your buddies.
This is a program tailor-made to suit your needs. We have a great team of experienced teachers who can either come to you in the comfort of your own home or meet at LPO.
Our introductory classes last one and a half hours. Sessions after that are roughly one hour but may slightly change with each teacher.

I have the solution… My studio is based in my garden and the young babies/pre schoolers play in my house. I have 5 of my own children all in school now but have plenty of toys to play with.

I started barre with Laura seven years ago. It’s an exercise class like no other. Laura knows how to keep you engaged with your workout whilst having fun.
I completely changed shape doing barre and it’s something that I find keeps me toned it is also kind to my body. I would thoroughly recommend barre and Laura’s classes to anyone looking to tone up and get into shape.
