When you hear the word symposium or conference, the normal inclination is to dread the long periods of sitting and visualising death by power-point.
This event was different – very different. “The BASI family”, a term we often refer to, to express how supportive and close-knitted we all are although scattered all over the world. This Symposium was indeed like a reunion of brothers and sisters.
Whatever side of the political spectrum you sit, no one can deny the “tribalism” that exists in America today. We have been forced to take sides and have been driven to the extremes of those sides. It is with sadness that I observe that the Pilates community is a microcosm of the tribalism we see in politics.
Many of us started our career in Pilates as a hobby or a side gig as we pursued our profession. Even my mom teased me about my Pilates career asking when I would have a "real job". And yet, Pilates has evolved into a full-time career for many of us, regardless of our position, be it independent contractors, studio owners or teacher trainers, to name a few of the many careers and hats we wear.
Maintaining the integrity of Joseph Pilates’ original body of work while meeting the needs of modern society can be a delicate balance. BASI Pilates Founder Rael Isacowitz shows you how to stay grounded in your roots—while keeping your more distant relatives well within reach.
