Comprehensive

BASI’s ProBridge program is a specialized bridging course for the qualified Pilates professional interested in experiencing the depth, intensity, and precision that only BASI provides.

ProBridge is the perfect opportunity to acquire a BASI education and ultimately join the BASI professional network. Our program credits the experience of the qualifying professional for previous Pilates education, study and work. Focus is placed on the principles and methodologies that represent the key differentiators between BASI and other teaching methods.

In addition to those individuals who have completed a different training program, we also encourage and welcome those students who have previously completed the BASI Comprehensive Teacher Training Course to join and share an intense review of the work they did previously. Clarification and nuances of movement allow the BASI graduate to revisit the original material by honing their existing skills with Rael himself.

The ProBridge program is not only for students of other disciplines but also a bridge between the CTTC and the Mentor Program.
