About Us

BASI Pilates Australia

BASI Pilates® is a leading Pilates education academy with a reputation for innovation, dedication, and academic excellence.

BASI stands for Body Arts and Science International, which is both the name of the academy’s holding company and an affirmation of its approach to Pilates studies. The mission of BASI Pilates is to create and maintain professional standards for the teaching of the Pilates Method and to preserve and perpetuate the gift of Pilates by educating teachers of the highest caliber.

BASI Pilates in Australia holds a special place in the heart of founder Rael Isacowitz. In 1989 Rael started the first teacher training program for students in Sydney and… is now spanning across the globe.

2018 marks a new era for BASI Pilates in Australia. An even larger range of programs will now be available including the traditional BASI Pilates Matwork and Comprehensive teacher training programs.  These are highly respected college-level Pilates teacher training programs that prepare students to teach Pilates professionally.

Additionally BASI Australia will now offer the ProBridge, advanced and continuing education workshops & Master level symposiums.

Program directors Shayne and Jordanna Smith have obtained the BASI Pilates Licence for Australia and are excited to represent and build the BASI Pilates Australian community.
