Your health and safety are important to us!

There is an extraordinary sense of uncertainty sweeping across the globe due to the quick spread of the COVID-19 Corona Virus. In a sea of news articles and statistics, we would like to bring a moment of calm to you, our students. Please read the notice below regarding the change of dates for the upcoming modules for all South Africa Courses as well as the Centralised Testing scheduled.

Your Host Studio will also be sending out e-mail notices of any changes, to which you must please respond to by confirming receipt of your mails. Your host studio will also notify you of their COVID-19 Protocols that we asked to please respect and understand as we are all only trying to do our best to reduce the spread of this virus.

We have kept in mind and will be adhering to stringent safety protocols going forward.

Our priorities are:

1. Keeping all of you safe with minimal exposure to others during the course.

2. Allowing the opportunity to do both the theory and practical components of your course.

3. To assist where possible with self-practice and teaching in the studio, once restrictions are lifted

4. To give you the best possible Pilates education to become a Qualified Pilates Instructor with an internationally recognised certificate.

SATURDAY - 18th July - 8:00am - 15:00pm

While we would like to say that the proposed schedule is cast in stone, it may have to change depending on laws we need to adhere to.

Studio Open time to students in your arranged pairs will need to be managed on a week by week basis. We have asked Kristie to manage this as she is fully aware of the studio commitments and your indevidual requirments. The arranged training pairs will be allowed to access to BODY MECHANIX WELLNESS CENTRE at designated times each week to facilitate practis. At all times the safety Protocol will need to be adhered to.

Having a week between repertoire will allow for practise time to solidify your learning progessiviely rather than overloading you with too much practical.

You are on an incredible journey. Lets ENJOY each step of the way, even if some steps are sideways - we get to see the view for a little longer...

All 2020 BASI Pilates Students will receive an additional month or two on their Student cards allowing them to do Observations and Free Mat Pilates classes at their  Host studio for an additional month or two after the cards initial expiration date. This is due to Studio's needing to take action to limit space and operating hours after the outbreak of COVID-19.
