The home of Pilates in Hertfordshire

The Pilates Pod first opened it's doors in August 2011, when we began offering small classes and 1:1s from within the Woodside Osteopathic Clinic in Bancroft, Hitchin (only 1 day a week people back then!) Within a few short months, we moved into our own premises at 107 Bancroft, where we now call home and have grown into a full timetable since then across 7 days a week.

The Pilates Pod is a multi award winning company (having won 8 awards) and are the only Classical Pilates studio in Hertfordshire. Owned by Michelle Smith, teacher of the Pilates method for over 15 years and trainer to many professional sports players, stars of stage, screen and music, and broadcasters, Michelle and her team of highly skilled teachers welcomes you and every BODY to come and enjoy some movement, a play in the studio and you too will find the joy of a lifetime of benefits that this traditional Pilates method can offer you.

We're really proud to have won several awards, but we're most proud of the progress our clients make, the friendships that are formed and the joy it brings us to teach.
