"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
Live Pilates classes resumed this term at the Friends Meeting House in Bakewell.

Viki spends roughly half her time teaching group classes and half giving private tuition. 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.
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 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.
In a group class, background noise is a problem, so after saying 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.
If you would like to join a class, please download and complete the Body Control Pilates Enrolment Form, and email it to email@example.com
Body Control Pilates also provide a more detailed Guide to Joining your Online Class.
Viki gives a 15 minute Pilates introduction in the video on the Online Inspiration page.
