Mentor Program - Theo Botha

Home / Certified / Mentor Program - Theo Botha

This three-day certificate course, developed by Master Teacher Rael Isacowitz, is the first phase of Ultimate Pilates Journey, consisting of the Mentor, Master I and Master II programs. This is Rael’s voyage of discovery and exploration into the deeper realms of the Pilates method and the sharing of his life’s work that spans over four decades.

The Mentor program focuses on refinement of the work and introduces us to the higher principles, advanced repertoire, utilizing all apparatus and is taking the student to the extreme edges of the Method. The Mentor Program provides the Pilates professional with the opportunity to learn from specially elected BASI faculty that have studied with Rael for almost twenty years and is passing his life’s work on to others.

Theo Botha, principal faculty for BASI Pilates South Africa is the first elected faculty member on which Rael has bestowed the honour to teach the Mentor Program under his direction.

To be eligible for this course, you must have completed the BASI Pilates Comprehensive Teacher Training Program or another recognized comprehensive teacher training course (proof of certificate required). Two (2) years of teaching experience for BASI qualified teachers and three (3) years for all others.
