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. 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. You have 2 options, you can either buy a block of 6 sessions which will give you 6 weeks to use those sessions or buy drop-in sessions where you have 4 weeks to use that session.

Can I pay online?
Yes! This is main way to pay now. You cannot book without paying first. If you don’t like doing things online please contact Vicky and she will arrange alternative booking and payment.

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. It also means that if there are any COVID cases it will be easy for me to contact all those participants that may need to isolate, this is why booking is essential.

How many people attend the class?
We have necessary social distancing measures in place. 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.

Is it okay to come and try it out?
Yes, sure! Buy a drop-in session on the booking system and come along, just remember to book and fill in a PAR-Q before attending.

Do I need to bring anything?
Yes, we used to provide equipment but this is not possible at the moment. Please bring a mat and block. You may also find it useful to bring a resistance band as well.

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.

“Vicky’s classes have enabled me to challenge myself and become stronger, fitter, more focused while enjoying the exercises and the group atmosphere.”
