Within a striking new building across the street from Newport Beach Golf Course stands the newest BASI Pilates international administrative offices and its state-of-the-art studio on the second floor.


According to founder Rael Isacowitz, the reimagined spaces were designed with innovation in mind, where he works closely amongst the years with a diverse team of Pilates enthusiasts on writing the educational curriculum, as well as coordinating the course offerings and scheduling for the BASI Host studios, including the one right upstairs.


There, a fully-furnished studio with the latest BASI Systems equipment is available for classes for local Pilates enthusiasts, professionals, and students alike. This includes workshops and certificate courses offered through BASI Pilates Advanced Education.

The address of the new location is 20361 Irvine Ave Building B2/3, Newport Beach, California, 92660, and the phone number is the same: 1-866-922-2742.

BASI PilaTEAS Coming to a Studio Near You

A collaboration between Pilates master Rael Isacowitz and Shaolin Kung Fu master Shifu Wang Bo, BASI PilaTEAS are five different herbal blends hand-harvested and developed by master herbalists at the Shaolin Temple. Each box of four individually-wrapped whole herbs were designed for specific health benefits, which include Cleanse & Detox, Immunity, Longevity, Vitality & Energy, and Sleep & Relaxation.


Quote from Rael?

The blend boxes can be ordered directly from the Shifu Wang Bo website, and the subscription delivery style is meant to keep the various benefits consistent and readily available. It can be canceled at any time.


You can also pick PilaTEAS up at the new Newport Beach location, and they are scheduled to be made available at select BASI studios for purchase starting in month of year.

Innovation Through Interaction

Pilates Interactive is the first and only knowledge resource for Pilates professionals. It’s used by educators, enthusiasts, physical therapists, and students for a wide range of purposes, as it includes an interactive video library of the entire BASI Pilates repertoire as taught in the Comprehensive Teacher Training Course.


BASI Pilates graduate and Olympic Medalist Jaime Kome had this to say: “I use Pilates Interactive to stay up-to-date with my technique, to maintain the integrity of my form, and so that I can teach that to the clients as well.”


The name Pilates Interactive will be changed to BASI Interactive, as the platform was created specifically for access to BASI’s resources from anywhere and at any time. The hope is that the consistency of the brand name will better instill the close-knit relationship between the BASI Studio experience and the value of BASI Interaction as its on-the-go counterpart.


Those already accustomed to Pilates Interactive need not worry, as the platform itself is not changing. To create a stronger fluidity of the BASI Pilates offerings, it is simply the name that will be different (and Rael assured us that the regular improvements and updates will continue without interruption.)
