◊ The Body Arts and Science (BASI™) Pilates Comprehensive Teacher Training Course was established by Pilates Master Teacher Rael Isacowitz in 1995. This program integrates the original work of Joseph Pilates with current scientific knowledge. The course covers extensive Pilates repertoire, as well as valuable theoretical and practical information related to postural analysis, Pilates exercise analysis, and exercise program design. BASI is recognized for offering one of the most comprehensive and prestigious Pilates training programs available. It has been offered in Australia, Austria, Brazil, England, Germany, Israel, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and South Africa, as well as at numerous sites in the United States.
◊ The BASI Pilates™Comprehensive Teacher Training Course with Dance Specialization covers the twelve modules taught at other BASI sites. These modules include extensive traditional Pilates repertoire utilizing mats, the reformer, Cadillac, wunda chair, and barrel; emphasizing effective cueing, their kinesiological basis, and modifications for different skill levels and select populations. This unique offering at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB), also includes dance-specific repertoire (mat and Pilates apparatus) developed by Karen Clippinger to help improve key areas such as extensions, arabesques, turnout, and ankle-foot control. While some of this repertoire is primarily appropriate for dancers, figure skaters, and gymnasts, other exercises can be used with general populations for fun and variety. Prior dance experience is not required.
This course is designed in an intensive format to facilitate attendance by students, teachers, and out of town participants. Past participants have come from Arizona, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, Oklahoma, Washington, Austria, China, England, South Africa, and Switzerland, as well as many local areas. However, due to this intensive format some prior Pilates experience is recommended, and a basic understanding of anatomy is very helpful. Certification participants are also encouraged to register early, so that they can use their study packet to help prepare for the course.
