You can also use page.bodyTagCObject (as Dmitry mentioned) and set the 
value based on the contents of the field tx_templavoila_to or 
tx_templavoila_next_to in the pages table.

I can't take time to test it out at the moment, but I would start with a 
nested CASE cObject something like what's shown below. Since 
tx_templavoila_to is not set for every page, you will have to use 
'slide' to find the nearest value of tx_templavoila_next_to. It will be 
tricky, but should be do-able.

You may also have to add tx_templavoila_to and tx_templavoila_next_to to 
the rootline ([FE][addRootLineFields] in install tool).

# Set up the body tags:

lib.bodyTag.1 = HTML
lib.bodyTag.1.value = <body class="class_1">

lib.bodyTag.2 = HTML
lib.bodyTag.2.value = <body class="class_2">

# Totally untested code:

bodyTagCObject = CASE
bodyTagCObject {
	key.field = tx_templavoila_to

	# if key field is not set:
	default = CASE
	default {
		key.data = levelfield : -1 , tx_templavoila_next_to, slide
		1 < lib.bodyTag.1
		2 < lib.bodyTag.2

	# if key field is 1:
	1  < lib.bodyTag.1

	# if key field is 2:
	2  < lib.bodyTag.2
