This class is the next level after a beginners Pilates class. You will continue to improve your strength, flexibility and stamina while developing long, lean muscles. The core-building techniques of Pilates promote lower back health. This class is designed to go deeper into the specific exercises and body alignment principles outlined by Joseph Pilates. Murat provides personalized technique correction and support to all students. Online students are recommended to turn on your video for this reason.

Murat perfectly balances creativity and getting down to business. He is a well rounded teacher + artist + athlete with a special aura, joyful vibration and bright spirit that conveys to his students his love of movement.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to continue to offer in-person classes, Still & Moving Center will require all in-person students to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test taken within 48-hours of the date of visit to the studio. Please bring your vaccine card (photocopy or photo are also acceptable) or negative test result with you to verify with the front desk prior to your next in-person class. Verification of vaccine status will be noted so that you will only need to show your vaccine card once. We will not store a visual record of your personal information.

The vaccination or testing requirement is only one part of helping keep our community safe and healthy. All other protocols still stand: You will be temperature checked and expected to maintain masks, social distancing and hand sanitizing at all times. Please bring your own yoga mat and props if possible (rentals available). If you have symptoms of COVID 19, please refrain from attending.
