Virtual Pilates

Welcome to VIRTUAL Pilates Pod – bringing the Pod to your home!


Pilates isn’t about the exercises you do, it’s about what you learn from your body as you do those exercises, how they translate to your every day life and how that benefits you as an individual. With our Pod virtual online classes, 1:1’s and learning workshops, YOU can join in from wherever you are with our live streamed sessions.

A message from our founder Michelle Smith:

Covid19 lockdown taught us that when certain freedoms are taken away, the basic things that really matter to people are health, exercise and human connection.  In a world of ever growing stresses, fast pace and pressure, the best investment you can make is time for your own mind and body well-being. Now you can do it from the comfort of your home. Many people have heard about our reputation but live too far away to physically come to the studio so we’re thrilled more people will be able to benefit from our expertise and our way of teaching.”

We can’t wait to see you soon!”

“The Pilates Pod live Pilates sessions have been a lifesaver during lockdown for so many of us. I learnt so many new things about my body and my hypermobility in my 1:1 that I can carry forward in all my other physical activities. Michelle has such high level indepth knowledge and the clarity in the Pod’s teaching over zoom is so good, it’s as if they are in the room with you.”

Thank you so much for my session today. I’m genuinely impressed with all the things you can use at home to help you recreate a home studio environment. It was brilliant to stretch and move after a day in the office. Thanks so much for your help, patience and kindness. I really appreciate it.” 

“It’s a difficult balance working full time, being a mama and having a wife that works shifts. Any exercise I do is in the playroom with my little one, so being able to do these classes online  means I can continue participating with The Pilates Pod without having to miss out with envy.”
