“Creativity is when the teacher and the pupil are the same person.”  

— Arthur Koestler

At BASI Pilates®, one of our most important missions is to encourage Pilates teachers to continue learning. As BASI® founder Rael Isacowitz says, earning your Pilates teaching credentials is the beginning of the journey. After that, the real learning begins -- with experience and regular polishing of your skills and knowledge.

We encourage professionals to progress through BASI Pilates Advanced Education. Following the Comprehensive Apparatus Program is the challenging Ultimate Pilates Program with Rael. This program consists of the Mentor, Master and Master Reunion courses and upon completion a certificate will be issued for Ultimate Pilates. 

In addition there is a wide array of high-caliber Advanced Education Certificate Courses, workshops, and BASI “Learn From The Leaders” conferences offered around the world. These are certain to expand a professional’s knowledge and horizons.

Open to all Pilates professionals regardless of their original certification, BASI Pilates Advanced Education provides a structured program that ensures everyone the opportunity to stay on the leading edge of the Pilates Method and continue growing within the Pilates profession.

BASI Pilates Advanced Education provides professionals with the opportunity to deepen their knowledge in Pilates for:

  • Specific purposes
  • Specific population groups
  • Anatomical focus on specific body parts
  • Advanced repertoire on all apparatus
  • Teaching practices and methodologies

International symposiums and conferences are part of BASI’s Advanced Education offerings. We also work with the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) to ensure that our program participants earn PMA Continuing Education Credits (CECs) whenever possible.
