BASI's ProBridge is a specialized, continuing education program for the qualified Pilates professional interested in experiencing the depth, intensity and precision that only BASI provides.

The Professional Bridging Program (ProBridge) is an intensive program that credits the experience of qualified Pilates professionals. Focus is placed on the specialized BASI principles and methodologies in a condensed program format.

The ProBridge Programs have been approved for 36 CECs by the PMA. Students must attend both Foundation and Graduate Programs to receive CECs.

    The course was great and I liked also having the teaching assistants available to help. The workbooks are very thorough and well done.

    Looking forward to the Comprehensive level.

    I found the course to provide the relevant information necessarily to bridge to BASI, without overloading the brain.

    I wish it was longer

    The only reason that I did not give the course a "5" is that I wish it were longer. We speed through the material so fast we can barely absorb it. I appreciate the fact that it is accelerated because we are entering it with knowledge and experience, but I still want more time to learn. Also, I had difficulty understanding the outline of the course. This could be my fault. I loved having the BASI faculty assist Rael. This allowed for more personal attention and feedback for the exercises and the mat class.
