The course was comprehensive and inclusive...

By Samantha T
The course was comprehensive and inclusive of everything that I expected and hoped to learn. I have a much deepened understanding of movement, anatomy as it relates to Pilates, injuries, and of course BASI Pilates and the BASI Block System. The BASI teaching staff was superb, inclusive, and welcoming. The written materials combined with access to Pilates Interactive and Rael's other publications provided a rich wealth of material. The weekends ran seemingly flawlessly.

The course was great...

By Alexis D
The course was great the way it was broken down, it helped absorb all the information easier. It was a good balance of lecture and repertoire in each class.

This experience has been life changing.
