Welcome to Pilates Active

About Pilates Active

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 intimidated 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 with CIMSPA and insured with UK Coaching. Vicky also has a qualifications in Pre and Post Natal exercise, Pelvic Floor Awareness, nutrition and weight management, Exercise Referral and Level 4 Lower Back Pain. 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?
This is what I recommend to see maximum results, but I understand that life sometimes gets in the way. Therefore, if you have to miss a week try and come to 2 sessions the next week. The membership system allows you to book onto to any 4 or 8 sessions that month.

Can I pay online?
Yes! This is the only way to pay now. You cannot book without paying first.

How many people attend the class?
We have a maximum of 14 in each class at B&A Church Hall. There is a maximum capacity of 10 at Horfield Methodist Church Hall. The Bank Fitness is the smallest class with a maximum of 7.

Is it okay to come and try it out?
Yes, sure! You can claim a FREE trial by emailing Vicky at freetrialclass@pilatesactive.com

Do I need to bring anything?
Please bring a mat and if possible, a yoga block.

Are ‘Pilates for All’ sessions suitable for beginners?
Yes they are. The great thing about Pilates are all the exercises are easily modified for all levels so the classes are accessible for everyone.

Can I try ‘Challenging Pilates’?
Yes! This class is designed for those of you that feel you are confident with the fundamentals and want to challenge yourself. But I am always on hand to help modify the trickier exercises. Come along and give it a try!

“I joined Pilates Active nearly 2 years ago after suffering a knee injury during training. My Pilates Active evenings allow me to simultaneously unwind and recharge after a hectic day in the office and with plenty of well-structured Beginners and Advanced Level Classes available, I am always able to fit a session or two into a busy week. The whole-body strengthening and lateral thoracic breathing techniques I’ve gained from Vicky’s mat Pilates classes have really improved my running and I am no longer prone to injuries!”
