Precise Pilates with Sally Cullum


Certified Body Control Pilates Teacher

  • Mondays 9.15am & 10.30am in The Coach Hall and 6pm & 7.15pm in The Buckingham Room at The Chantry
  • Tuesdays 6pm in The Coach Hall at The Chantry

There is currently availability in all classes and a 7.15pm is planned when there is enough interest on the waiting list.

Classes are still operating with 2m distance between clients so numbers are currently reduced to 10 per class - numbers are kept small so that personal attention and correction can be provided. 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 feel pressured to keep up with other clients.

Body Control Pilates is remarkably effective, and medically approved. Central to the method is an 'awareness of your own body' and each and every exercise is built around the eight basic principles: Relaxation, Concentration, Alignment, Breathing, Centring, Concentration, Stamina & 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!
