Pilates Conferences and Symposiums

BASI participates in a variety of Pilates conferences and symposiums every year, ranging from the annual Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) conference to BASI’s highly successful Learn from the Leaders conference.

BASI's Learn from the Leaders Conferences (LFTL) since circa 1993 have always been more than only education, they are a celebration of the BASI Community and its awesome spirit. Since then, this highly acclaimed series has expanded worldwide, and has been held with great success in the U.S., Australia, South Africa, Germany and Greece, with more in the works. BASI Pilates® founder Rael Isacowitz conceived of the series as a forum in which leaders of the Pilates world could come together to further the philosophy and practice of Pilates education in a collaborative manner. Guest teachers for the program have included original students of Joseph Pilates such as Lolita San Miguel.

The success of the Learn from the Leaders series is clear from the stellar list of teachers who have led or participated in its sessions. They include the leading students and protégés of the first generation—Michelle Larssen (Eve Gentry), Kathy Corey (Ron Fletcher), Rael Isacowitz (Kathy Grant,) Alan Herdman (Robert Fitzgerald)—as well as the most celebrated of the current teachers: Deborah Lessen, Carol Appel, Jillian Hessel, Carolyne Anthony and Karen Clippinger.

Most Learn from the Leaders classes and workshops are approved for continuing education credits from the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA).
