"Nearly 10 years since my wife persuaded me to accompany her to Vicky's Pilates classes, and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Can honestly say that at 78 I don't think I'd still be playing 18 holes of golf twice a week without them." - David

Online Group Classes

Currently all classes are being held online, using Zoom. This is live video link software, so you will be able to see Viki on your phone or computer screen as she demonstrates the exercises - and she will be able to see you.

Learn Pilates during self-isolation or lockdown - join one of Viki's online group classes or arrange for private tuition over live video link.

For a quick taster session, see Viki's introductory video on the Online Inspiration page.

The online group classes run for either 30 minutes or an hour, but people log in and say hello 5-10 minutes beforehand.

Numbers are limited to around 6 per session so Viki can see you all clearly.

Online Private Tuition

Private tuition is particularly recommended if you are recovering from injury or want to work on a particular issue. Private classes are also online-only at present, but Viki will be able to see and concentrate on your every movement via a dedicated 1:1 video link.

The price for a private online class following a similar 40 minute format to the group classes would be £20. However time slots and exact format can be arranged to suit your individual requirements.

How to Join an Online Class

To join Viki online, you will need a mat and a band. You will also need a laptop, PC or phone with speakers and a camera - and a good internet connection.

You will not need to install any special software to use a laptop or PC, but if you want to use your phone, you will need to download the Zoom app. This is a free app that can be downloaded from the Google play store for Android phones, or from the Apple store for I-phones. If you can mirror your phone to a smart TV, you'll be able to watch Viki on the big screen!

Viki sends an email containing a link to join your class approximately 15 minutes before the class starts. Click on the link and she should appear on your screen... but if there are any problems have your phone handy and text Viki to request another link.

Online group classes run for either 30 minutes or an hour, but people log in and say hello 5-10 minutes beforehand. Numbers are limited to around 6 per group class so Viki can see you all clearly.

In a group class, background noise is a problem, so after everyone has said hello, you will need to mute yourself (your microphone not your speaker!). Touch or click on the screen and a bar appears with a mute button at top of the screen in the middle. Then the camera stays on Viki and your class will begin.

Private Tuition or Group Class?

Viki spends roughly half her time teaching group classes and half giving private tuition. Private tuition is particularly recommended if you are recovering from injury or want to work on a particular issue. Private classes can be individual 1:1 tuition, or can be shared with a friend.

The types of Pilates and dance that Viki teaches are explained in more detail on the Pilates & dance page. The group class timetable is given above. All of the group classes are good fun, friendly and sociable.

Unfortunately Viki cannot offer Pilates on the Reformer at present, while classes are online only.
