My BASI Pilates Story
with Amy Saville
Ever wondered what it is actually like to study a BASI Pilates program? How do you juggle studying a Pilates teacher training course and hold down an office job? We spoke to BASI student, Amy Saville who recently completed the final modules of the Global Comprehensive Program at our Brisbane Host Studio, Pilates Studio 64.
Q. Why did you decide to study a BASI Pilates program rather than the other Pilates teaching courses on offer?
– That the BASI method is respected world-wide and has been around for 30 years! This spoke volumes to me, as I knew it would be a course I could trust. It also means that once qualified, I can work anywhere!
– The course content and length. There are so many weekend long courses out there that don’t provide the same quality. I wanted to finish my course being completely confident in my abilities as an instructor and BASI has definitely provided this.
Q. How did you find the delivery and structure of the course?
Q. What are you doing to get your self-practice and observation hours up? How are you finding the demands of the course?
It’s very demanding (especially as I still have a 3-day/week office job), but so rewarding! Pilates is my passion, so it’s always a joy to dedicate time to it! I guess that’s why I want it to be my career!
Q. How many hours a week do you dedicate to BASI training? Do you have another day job?
Q. What has the support been like from BASI Australia Faculty throughout the course?
It’s inspiring seeing all that they’ve achieved and the understanding that they have of the human body and the Pilates method. It makes me want to be the best instructor I can be! I love studying under Faculty who really love what they do and are passionate about passing the BASI method on!
Q. What do you plan to do after the course?
Q. What are your ultimate Pilates goals?
Q. What is your favourite exercise from the BASI repertoire and why?
Q. Anything else you would like to tell us about your BASI Pilates experience?
Thanks Amy. Welcome to the BASI family and we look forward to following your Pilates teaching career.
