I had not studied for almost 20 years and I still needed to much fitter than I was.  This however was not a problem. The training received was intense and tailored to everyone’s capabilities.  Over the duration of the course it was evident the sheer volume of information to be learned was immense. The support given by the studio and BASI® instructors was wonderful. 

BASI® (Body Arts Science International) Pilates is a well-designed, in-depth and innovative form of
Pilates where they have stayed true to the art of movement and most importantly Joseph and Clara
Pilates. The course has provided me with not only the skillset to teach Pilates with a professional
standard, but also a passion to strengthen myself, mind and body.
