BASI represents an excellence in the training landscape to the Pilates discipline. It offers a complete teacher training program, as well as continuous in-depth studies and additions (Advanced Education) ranging from the study of specific aspects, to master-level workshops and international symposia. Our teachers (Faculty) are unsurpassed as teachers and mentors, all our staff are dedicated to the support of our students.
The training course of BASI Pilates Italia also offers access to a portal of complete lessons (free during the course duration) with over 100 lessons in Italian held by Faculty or assistants to be able to exercise during the training period (https: // pilatesinitaly .basipilates.it /). As well as free access – both as a student and as a BASI teacher – to study at the headquarters in Prato to observe teachers’ lessons, practice tools alone or to meet up with colleagues and training companions.
Joseph Pilates certified only two teachers during his lifetime, Kathy Stanford-Grant and Lolita San Miguel. Today, spurred on by unprecedented growth in Pilates over the past two decades, tens of thousands of Pilates practitioners are teaching the method worldwide. Many of them are true professionals, but there are many others with dubious or non-existent credentials who have taken advantage of the unregulated nature of the discipline. Pilates enthusiasts must be able to trust the legitimacy and caliber of their instructors. Likewise, those who aspire to practice the method professionally must be assured that the educational program they choose will provide them with a successful and lasting path. Perhaps no Pilates teacher training program is larger than that offered by BASI Pilates®.
