I loved every aspect of this course.

By Jennifer A
I loved every aspect of this course. I would have loved to do the Comprehensive course but financially it was too much at this time. Hopefully, in the future I will be able to complete that as well.

I have enjoyed learning the BASI Method

By Nicole G
The Mat program is a great course. I have enjoyed my time learning the BASI method. I do wish that we had one more weekend to learn the expert exercises since I do not have the strength to really practice them as well as I wish I could. Other than that, this is wonderful program and I am glad to be a part of it.
