This course is great.

By Tracie S
This course is great and at this point I feel I would have liked a bit more time each day for the mat training portion to allow for more group support and prep for the written exam as well as more practice together in the classroom.

I am very excited about what I have learned.

By Sherry B
I am very excited about what I have learned and appreciate the professionalism of my instructors as well as staff I have talked to on the phone. The expectations are high with very respectful time to master the BASI Pilates method. It is wonderful how the program is ever evolving. Thank you so much.

I feel like I made the right choice by choosing BASI to study Pilates.

By Kristy C
I feel like I made the right choice by choosing BASI to study Pilates. I was surprisingly impressed by the overall experience. I learned a lot. I loved the teachers. The only thing I wish were different was the options of the courses. Having a full time career, I found it difficult to be able to commit to the Comprehensive Teaching Course, which is ultimately what I want to do. And as a wife and full time employee, I don't find the length of the course and the amount of observation and practice hours doable. I wish that you guys would break down the curriculum, like in Mat, and have different repertoire certifications for those of us with families and full time jobs. Other schools do offer this and I have been looking into that as an option instead, so that I can start working in this field and continue to work full time and take the training by bit. If these options were available, BASI would be my next certification choice.
