BASI offers three stand-alone programs: Mat, Foundation Program, and Graduate Program. Students who want to become fully certified Pilates instructors are required to take all three programs, which, in combination, fulfill all aspects, required of a comprehensive teacher training program. Students who complete all of the mat program requirements may teach the full mat repertoire.
The Foundation Program offers an introduction to the basic exercises performed on the Reformer, Cadillac, and Chair. Completion of the Mat program is a pre-requisite to enrollment in the Foundation Program. Completion of the Foundation Program does not qualify students to teach the apparatus, but it does allow them to teach mat. Students who are interested in becoming a fully credentialed Pilates instructors are encouraged to enroll in the Graduate program. Students who sign up for both the Foundation Program and the Graduate Program receive a $200 discount. Completion of all three of the programs and requisite hours of study, observation, student teaching, and self-practice qualifies the student to take the final teaching evaluation that culminates in the BASI Pilates Instructor Credential.
