The mission of BASI Pilates®, as mentioned on its website:
BASI stands for Body Arts and Science International®, which is the name of the academy’s holding company and an affirmation of our approach to Pilates teacher training. A BASI Pilates education is anchored in scientific principles while celebrating the art of every movement.
• BASI Pilates upholds and perpetuates the work of Joseph and Clara Pilates by educating teachers of the highest caliber.
• BASI Pilates preserves the classical repertoire and the essence of Joseph Pilates’ philosophy while supplementing it with the contemporary experience and scientific knowledge.
• BASI Pilates endeavors to grow in substance, and will always strive to be true to art, science, and knowledge; and to the intentions of Joseph and Clara Pilates.
• Well-being is our ultimate goal. In pursuit of this goal, every level of the human condition will be addressed to better each individual as well as the world we live in.
Today, the BASI Pilates network extends to over 30 countries and encompasses thousands of graduates. Teacher training courses are on the go constantly, in over 100 locations around the world.
