“In a world with far, far too much suffering, BASI is a beacon of light. BASI is a safe haven for all, no matter who you are, where you are from. BASI is warmth. BASI is compassion. BASI is love . . . BASI is for everyone, every religion, every culture, wherever you’re from, that is what BASI is.” — Rael Isacowitz
The mission of BASI is to create and maintain professional standards for the teaching of the Pilates method and to preserve and perpetuate the gift of Pilates by educating teachers of the highest caliber.
After more than 30 years in the industry, one thing has become certain: BASI is not just about Pilates. BASI has become just as much about people and serving as a force for positive change in the global community.
Throughout the past 30 years, BASI has developed a unique formula and methodology for successful educational programming that effectively shapes BASI Pilates students while maintaining the company’s goals:
To preserve the classical repertoire and the essence of Joseph Pilates’s philosophy while supporting and encouraging evolution based on experience and scientific knowledge.
To address every level of the human condition to better each individual, as well as the world around us, in pursuit of the ultimate goal: physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
