Welcome to Pilates Active

Classes are held in Bristol in the Bishopston area.

Pilates is suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. The slow controlled flowing movements primarily strengthen the core muscles that stabilise the spine, realign the body and help correct postural problems. Pilates brings mind and body together, focusing strongly on total concentration, balance, precision and breathing.

Vicky offers classes for different abilities (please see timetable). On request I can also do one-to-one sessions, small groups or come into the work place.

Pilates Active is run by Vicky Woodington. Vicky has been practising Pilates for over 15 years and decided to train as a Pilates instructor, after having her first child in 2011. Vicky’s passion for Pilates comes from being able to see progress so quickly. She has never felt intimated by any of the exercises as there are always adaptations to each one, to build strength up before trying more advanced levels. Vicky also loves the energy a Pilates session gives her.

Vicky trained with Future Fit in Level 3 Mat Pilates. This has enabled her to deliver clear, progressive and professional classes. Vicky is registered and insured with REP’s (Register of Exercise Professionals). Vicky also has a qualification in Pre and Post Natal exercise. Vicky has a passion for exercise and fitness and has a clear understanding of what people want from attending an exercise class. She is committed to always deliver classes that give variety and challenges to all attendees.

Your questions answered

Do I have to come to consecutive sessions?
No, if you have bought a block of 6 sessions you just need to redeem them within 3 months of purchase.

Can I pay online?
We have not set up this service yet. You are welcome to pay via BACs (ask Vicky to send you the details) or bring cash or cheque to the class.

If I pay for a block of 6 sessions do I still need to book online each week?
Yes, the online booking is there to ensure the classes do not become over booked.

How many people attend the class?
We have a maximum of 14 in each class at B&A Church Hall. If you prefer a smaller class, the one held at Yogafurie has a maximum of 9.

Is it okay to come and try it out?
Yes, just come along and pay the drop-in price of £7.50, just remember to book online first.

Do I need to bring anything?
No need to bring anything, all equipment is provided. Just yourself and some water.

Will I be informed when I should move on to improvers?
No this is your decision as you are the best judge of what your body can do. However, if it was thought that your technique needed improvement Vicky would give you a hand in class.

“I have been attending Vicky’s Pilates class for many years, it’s become an important part of my week. I find the classes well balanced and varied. I used to have problems with my lower back, I have found that taking part in Vicky’s classes has improved this.”
