Testimonial

I’m not sure why my knee was acting up, perhaps all the crazy hill walks we’re doing since being home bound. It was so sore and troublesome, and I was doing everything I could: ice, anti-inflammatory ointment, Tylenol and some exercises I had learned previously. Nothing was really working, so I decided to see if a virtual private Pilates lesson might help. I was lucky to get one very soon after asking. The teacher was able to assess my kinaesthetic chain and develop a plan of action over the web with the assistance of my husband as the human “tripod” for my iPad. 

Three days later, after almost a month of pain and my knee not feeling right, the pain is gone and my knee is feeling much better. I am so grateful, once again, for the resident knowledge and expertise at the Vancouver Pilates Centre. I can now look forward to riding my new bike, and all the pleasure I get from walking and cross country skiing. Thank you VPC!”

Virtual Classes FAQ

We have helpful tips and security measures in place to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for you online! 

 

When will I receive a Zoom link to the class?

30 minutes prior to the start of class.  Once you receive the email, click on the link and you will be admitted to the waiting room.  Your VPC host will admit you into the class 5 minutes prior to the start of class.

What if I am late to the class?

Class will start on time regardless of technical issues. We will do our best to let in those who are a few minutes late, but once the class begins it may not be possible to monitor class entries while teaching.

What device should I use?

For the best experience, we highly recommend having the latest version of Zoom downloaded on a computer (rather than phone or iPad/tablet). We have experienced some difficulties using an iPad. 

How do I set up my screen?

You should see the VPC studio as your main screen with either the teacher or demonstrator present.  If they are not, make sure to click “speaker view” in the top right corner of the screen.

 

How do I set up audio and video?

Once the class has begun attendees will be muted to reduce background noise and for ease of teaching.  Your video is optional to be turned on. 

Do I need props?

Check the class descriptions for props to have ready, and if previous experience is recommended. We suggest getting your space and props ready before class starts, and set your computer at an appropriate height (it is helpful to have a low location for mat exercises and a higher location for sitting or standing work). Be prepared for some seated, standing and lying down exercises depending on each class. 

How do I position my device?

Learn how to position your device in this short video so we can provide the best Virtual VPC experience.

ENJOY your class!  We look forward to moving with you!

This is a new endeavor for us, but we are committed to learning new things and providing the best experience we can online. We have developed a suite of high quality virtual services to bring the VPC experience into your homes! We appreciate your feedback, and your patience, as we adjust to this brave new world.
