Unbeknown to some, BASI is an acronym that stands for Body Arts and Science Internation OR more recently Body Arts, Science, and Innovation.

With evolution and growth there is always the risk of losing sight of the original choreography and intention, In essence, risk of the work becoming diluted. Every exercise is choreographed and refined to satisfy the art and science of Pilates. It is time to return to the source and revisit both the philosophy and the choreography. In the process, we will look at the vital role fo the eyes incorrect placement, the body's instinctive response to stress and analyze and understand the infamous C-curve - in musical terms, "middle C" (256 Hz).

Recorded Workshop: The Multi-Dimensional Powerhouse: A Symbiotic Relationship Between Movement and Equipment with Rael Isacowitz

1 video / 2hrs 27min. $ 100.00

This is a workshop that investigates new dimensions in movement and equipment. Since the creation of the Pilates Method by its founder, Joseph Pilates, it is impossible to ignore the advances in equipment design and scientific knowledge. Although I am a fervent believer in never losing sight of the source and always honoring the founder of the method, it is as important to fully investigate the advances that have occurred. We need to understand them and utilize them with knowhow and integrity. If not, we risk the Pilates Method becoming a hodgepodge of “just exercises” with no roots and very little substance – altered beyond recognition. In this workshop we will look at some great advanced in the equipment and the movement and trace them directly back to their roots. This process of “exercise lineage” is vital to both evolution and maintaining the integrity of the method itself.
