    Rael is magnetic, and his passion is beyond inspiring.

    I was expecting more in terms of teaching these specific exercises to the majority of the population. There was a lot of demonstration on how to do it perfectly, or if you are a hypermobile client. It would have been helpful to show these exercises being taught to students who have different limitations that are more commonly seen in our daily teaching.

    The course and Rael are both wonderful.

    The course and Rael are both wonderful. It would have been nice however to get a real movement analysis workbook, similar to those of the comprehensive course. As it is, you have to chose between watching the demonstration and taking notes in order to have the full choreography, which is a shame. Having more than one assistant would also have been nice. Rael and Ashley were so busy, I was mostly cued by my classmates who were also just discovering this very challenging repertoire. An extra assistant would have made a big difference.

    Super hard and challenging, but great to remember Pilates is an everyday journey of discipline, dedication and precision on the work. Love it!

    It was a life changing experience. The entire community of people is open and excited to work together and share. Rael sets this example and from there in flows with precision and vitality.

    Because of translation we lost some time.

    Because of translation we lost some time. Would have been goed to add an extra hour. It was the mentor program. Not the master program.

    Rael was wonderful and being around him and learning from him was tremendous.

    The handouts were numbered incorrectly between the two manuals, and there isn't enough information with each exercise to be able to record the exercises well enough to remember things properly.

    Wonderful course and inspiring course material. Rael and Constance did wonderful work answering questions, supporting and correcting us during practice. A suggestion would be to have another Faculty member on hand for support and to increase the efficiency of our practice, e.g. getting people moving through the repertoire to practice and using the equipment efficiently.As a Mentor program -- I agree with Rael's observation that an important part of the focus is mentoring and connecting with the participants through correction and movement enhancement but I do also understand that time is limited and personally really enjoyed the amount of repertoire covered. I felt the repertoire covered did justice to emphasize Advanced and Master Level program development and clearly demonstrated the place and importance of The Block System in the BASI methodology.

    The Mentor Course is as promised, the next step on the BASI journey, and although it is overwhelming, it is so thrilling to know that there is more and more to strive to comprehend and master!

    This course has definitely helped me fine tune my teaching.

    Although I knew most of the exercises, it was great being able to see them in a more detailed way. This course has definitely helped me fine tune my teaching.

    Can't fault it. What a fantastic experience! Thank you so much!

    I would have loved some more detailed notes in the manual, however the information given verbally and therefore personal notes we took will suffice (if I can read my hand writing)!

    I feel nothing but gratitude

    It feels awkward to rate an opportunity like this where I could be around such a person like Rael Isacowitz. So I feel nothing but gratitude. I highly respect the organization, Bodynetworx, that made it possible. Thank you again and again
