The Legacy Program is the confluence of the art and science of learning, teaching, and practicing Pilates at the highest level. Taught in its entirety exclusively* by BASI founder, Rael Isacowitz, this is a personal and life-changing exploration into the most advanced and diverse repertoire and an exploration of the teaching nuances of the Pilates method. Rael generously shares his vast knowledge, accumulated over four decades, as he guides this unique and enriching journey.
The Legacy Program consists of 4 individual phases:
Upon completion of all four phases, students receive the BASI Legacy Certificate.
Legacy is the highest achievement within BASI Pilates. Graduates of this unique, one-of-a-kind educational experience are well-equipped to carry the torch of Pilates for future generations of students and teachers.
The first phase of the Legacy Program introduces the Higher Principles while placing focus on the refinement of teaching methodology and the advanced repertoire.

I have enjoyed my instruction time with Carrie and Adriana. I am looking forward to completing the course and receiving my certification.
BASI is an amazing program! Being that I was brand new to any sort of teaching career, I jumped right into this without any other certs or college courses on anatomy.
I loved every minute of the course, and look forward to completing the Comprehensive course in the future.
