Precise Pilates with Sally Cullum

Certified Body Control Pilates Teacher


Classes have been considerably impacted due to social distancing and the need for enhanced cleaning procedures before, between and after classes.
Currently classes are closed however outside of lockdown and when the tiering system permits classes have been reduced to:

Monday at The Chantry
9.15-10am & 10.30-11.15am in The Coach Hall
6-6.45pm & 7.15-8pm in The Buckingham Room
Tuesday at The Chantry
6pm-6.45pm in The Buckingham Room

Classes also run in Wotton-under-Edge on a Wednesday and Thursday. Classes are currently restricted to 6 clients.
I am unable to run any beginners’ classes under the current restrictions.


Mondays 9.15-10.15am in The Coach Hall and 6pm & 7.15pm in The Buckingham Room at The Chantry, and Tuesdays 6.15pm & 7.30pm at Crossways Infant School. Classes also run in Charfield and Wotton-under-Edge.
Classes are limited to 12 clients so that personal attention and correction can be provided and all equipment is supplied. All clients are actively encouraged to work at a level that not only suits their own ability but also to work within the capabilities of their own body and not to feel pressured to keep up with other clients.
Body Control Pilates is remarkably effective, and medically approved. Central to the method is 'awareness of your own body' and each and every exercise is built around its eight basic principles: Relaxation, Concentration, Alignment, Breathing, Centring, Concentration, Stamina and Flowing Movements.

This Mum Runs

Totally free Thornbury running group for mums “This Mum Runs” has launched regular local runs designed to empower women to get happier and healthier, as well as having a laugh and meeting other local parents.

Those interested should join the “This Mum Runs Bristol” Facebook group and search for details of the Thornbury runs, as well as joining the locally-focused “Thornbury Mums Running Chat” Facebook group.

We meet on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm and Sunday mornings at 8am on the little grassy hill opposite the Tesco petrol station, lead a warm up and cool down, and run at a very friendly chatty pace, with lots of “looping” so the whole group stays together and no-one gets left behind. It’s ideal for people who haven’t run for a while, or who have perhaps done the Couch to 5K programme but need the motivation to keep it going!
