Professional Bridging Course (ProBridge)
It may not always be possible for the working professional to devote the time and funds necessary to undertake another full-length teacher training course. Therefore, BASI is proud to offer a program designed specifically for you!
BASI's ProBridge program is a specialized bridging course for the qualified Pilates professional interested in experiencing the depth, intensity, and precision that only BASI provides. ProBridge is the perfect opportunity to acquire a BASI education and ultimately join the BASI professional network. Our program credits the experience of the qualifying professional for previous Pilates education, study and work. Focus is placed on the principles and methodologies that represent the key differentiators between BASI and other teaching methods.
In addition to those individuals who have completed a different training program, we also encourage and welcome those students who have previously completed the BASI Comprehensive Teacher Training Course to join and share an intense review of the work they did previously. Clarification and nuances of movement allow the BASI graduate to revisit the original material by honing their existing skills (graduates, please contact BASI headquarters directly for more information about auditing the ProBridge program).
The ProBridge program is an ideal vehicle to link the BASI CTTC and the Mentor Program.
This course has been approved for 36 CECs by the PMA.
BASI Pilates has long been regarded as the pinnacle of education in the method by Pilates professionals worldwide. While many programs have fashioned their education after the BASI model, none have met or surpassed the standard set by BASI’s founder and CEO, Rael Isacowitz.
Rael's passion for excellence and love of Pilates has shaped the past, present and now the future of the method. ProBridge bridges the gap between where you are today and where you could be in the future!
"I was first attracted to the program after I realized that all my favorite Pilates classes were taught by BASI-qualified Pilates instructors. I have multiple certifications and BASI has given me by far the most value." Kaita Lepore, Santa Barbara Athletic Clubenroll now
