Big enough to be exciting. Small enough to enjoy.

The biggest Pilates event.

BASI Learn From The Leaders is the ultimate Pilates experience 

BASI has been a leading Pilates education academy with a reputation for innovation, dedication, and academic excellence for thirty years. The concept for BASI Learn from the Leaders (LFTL) Conferences originated in Australia in the early nineties and has since been held with great success in the USA, South Africa, Germany and Greece.

BASI LFTL is open to everyone in the Pilates community and not only features top industry presenters, hands-on education, interactive workshops, and exciting social events, it also acts as a hub for Pilates professionals and enthusiasts to come together in celebration of this thriving community.

We are looking forward to host our third  BASI® Learn from the Leaders conference in Germany!
