Elvan is offering the signature BASI flow Pilates sessions. The classes are built on a somatic and continuous flow while zooming into the exercises by giving 110% effort. The Principles are based on introducing, conditioning and engaging the individual body with an emphasis on breathing. Key elements of the class are listening, flow and precision. We avoid putting our bodies in uncomfortable positions or only chasing burning muscles but rather listen to what is natural to our ability and strive for precision while maintaining the flow of the session. Elvan believes in healing and opening qualities of movement that generate flow in the body.

Her goal in a mat Pilates class is to help people find their growth and strength in themselves and their movement.
