Our studio is equipped with (almost!) every piece of Pilates equipment, including reformers, towers, a cadillac, chairs, a pedi-pole, barrels, mats and more. Everything a teacher could ask for! We’re also proud to have won several awards recognising our achievements.

The position will be based in our beautiful studio in the heart of Hitchin, and will suit people within commuting distance or someone looking to relocate. 

The position is for 15-20 hours per week and will include evenings and a Sunday. The role will be mainly as a teacher, but will also involve other responsibilities across the business. 

Please note that the salary of £25-29k pro rata is based on 40 hours per week. As a part time time role, the actual salary will depend on the actual number of hours.
