It hardly seems possible, but on the 5th July, The Pilates Pod turns 11 years old! Every year in business is something to celebrate – and this year we’re celebrating by putting on some relaxing, mindful and reflective activities for you to enjoy. Our Family Picnic, Pil-art-es and Meditation / Breathwork sessions are open to all, and a great way to discover the Pod. We hope to see you at one of our special birthday events.

Please note that our special birthday classes and events are not included in current membership packages.

Birthday Special Offers

That’s right, we’re giving you all a bonus 11% OFF the following items so you can get started with us, get moving some more, look good and help the pocket too! You just need to book with Lisanne on reception so give her a call
(1 of each per person, not in conjunction with other offers)

Family Picnic


Between 12noon and 2pm on the 2nd July, we’re going to be over at Bancroft Park, by the bandstand for an informal family picnic. We’d love it if you’d join us, so bring a blanket your lunch and something to drink and meet us there! No need to book, just turn up.

Guided Meditation and Breathwork


During our Birthday week, Michelle will be taking some relaxing 45-minute guided meditation and breathwork sessions from the studio in Hitchin. These will also be available to join online. Take a deep breath with us and some well-earned time out from your busy day.

We thought it’d be fun to do some drawing! Ed will be guiding you through a fun session, with Michelle as your (clothed!) model.

We will work through a number of short still poses to warm up, followed by some longer poses to practice. Finally, Michelle will demonstrate the intermediate matwork series for you to interpret in your own way as art on paper! Paper, pencils and refreshments will be provided – but feel free to bring your own materials too if available.

Pilates Playground / Open Gym Sessions.

An open, self-led Pilates session where you can work-out using the studio apparatus and space. This is a fantastic way to complement your regular classes and 1:1s, work out at your own level, hone your skills and attend more frequently. Simply purchase a Pilates Playground pass, and book yourself into an available 55 minute session from the timetable. You can then arrive any time within that slot and stay for as long as you like up to the end of that session.

Please note that the Pilates Playground sessions are only available to existing clients who are already attending classes at The Pilates Pod. Refer to our website for full details below*.
