Requirements

Academic Study
18 modules, 16 days of instruction that include lectures, practicals and sample mat classes, presentation of papers and case histories.

Personal Study
Limited review and practice time is integrated into the program, but extensive outside study of course principles and Pilates repertoire is required outside of class time for successful completion of the program. BASI Headquarters allows BASI at CSULB participants to practice alone or in groups during “open studio time” for no charge. Sessions and Mat Work classes are also highly recommended and are offered at student rates at many BASI studios. 

 

Practical Work
Including sessions on all the apparatus and Mat Work. Sessions and Mat Work classes are highly recommended and are offered at student rates at most Host locations and affiliated studios. In addition most Host locations offer “open studio time,” during which students can practice on their own or in groups).

 

Observation
Up to 100 hours at the Host location, at a BASI studio or with a BASI instructor. (This is the recommended number of hours; they may be adjusted based upon the past experience of the student.)

Apprentice Teaching
Up to 200 hours at the Host location, at a BASI studio, or with a BASI instructor. (This is the recommended number of hours; they may be adjusted based upon the past experience of the student.)

Course Prerequisites

Familiarity with the teachings of Joseph Pilates

It is highly recommended that each student be familiar with the theoretical basis of Pilates and have some experience in both Mat Work and on the apparatus, before embarking on this course of study.

Experience in a related form of physical activity

Prior experience in an athletic activity develops body awareness and other attributes that are extremely beneficial to the study of Pilates.

Study in basic anatomy and physiology

Prior completion of a course that includes anatomy such as Anatomy for the Dancer, Dance Kinesiology, Anatomy of Movement, or Human Anatomy is recommended. It is recommended that this be a college-level course. Specialization in a related area of study, such as a physical therapy or massage therapy, is normally acceptable and will be judged on its merits.

Teaching experience is recommended

Teaching is both a natural talent and a learned skill. Any past teaching experience, even in an unrelated field, will contribute to your becoming a skilled teacher of the Pilates method.

Dance experience

Prior dance training is highly recommended, but not required in all cases.
