At BASI we regard Pilates Mat work as the “crown jewel” of Pilates.
The Pilates Mat Teacher Training Program is the perfect vehicle for learning the principles of the Pilates Method. It is affordable, easy to integrate into different settings, and a great way to introduce people to Pilates.

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.
