Program schedule is subject to postponement or cancellation, based on student enrollment.

This could mean possibly transferring to a part-online / part-practical (at the studio) format to ensure that you can complete the course within a reasonable amount of time.

The Course

The COMPREHENSIVE GLOBAL PROGRAM provides complete and thorough training in Pilates, covering the entire range of Pilates equipment: Mat Work, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, Ladder Barrel, Step Barrel, in addition to various other auxiliary equipment. It is a complete and intensive advanced level program that provides both a solid basis for teaching and a thorough understanding of all the facets of Pilates. The course also includes instructions on the BASI® “Block System” (a complete teaching programming methodology) and on the science of human movement, anatomy and physiology.

BASI Pilates® certification

In addition to the academic study, students must complete the following hours of study:

– Observation (100 hours, of which 80% can be done using BASI Interactive )

– Self-practice (200 hours, of which 50% can be done using BASI Interactive )

– Student teaching (200 hours, of which 50% can be done using an online teaching tool such as Zoom)

– Final exam: Final Test, Teaching Evaluation, Practical

– Thesis on a case study

Your observation and personal practice are best done in a BASI environment, The Movement Practice will allow you time for observation and self-practice at their studio by appointment. You can also book in with them for paid sessions, which is highly recommended and a very important part of your learning.

If you have no access to a BASI studio and don’t live near your host studio, then you can log hours in a non-BASI environment and then refer to BASI Interactive to check on what might be different and why. Your teaching can be done at home or anywhere you can find friends or family willing to have you teach them. To teach using the apparatus, you can generally book in time at your host studio to teach fellow students to gain hours of practice. Please treat your host studio and their apparatus with the utmost respect.
