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.
Discount: Students who sign up for both the ProBridge Foundation and the Graduate Programs, at the same time, receive a $200 discount on the ProBridge Graduate Program Fee.
We welcome students who have completed the BASI Comprehensive Program to Audit and experience an intense review of the work they did previously. Clarification of nuances of movement allows BASI graduates or current Comprehensive students to revisit the original material without the stress, and hone their existing skills.
The ProBridge Program is open to any Pilates professional whose qualifications are deemed sufficient by BASI Pilates. The ProBridge Program is also open to all graduates of the BASI Comprehensive Program.
Students must provide documentation of successful completion from a recognized Comprehensive Pilates teacher training program. The program must be a minimum of 450 hours, including training on all apparatus. Online training is not acceptable. The previous training must have included a practical assessment of movement and teaching skills. The director of the training program must have had a minimum of ten years teaching Pilates at the time of training.
