We are looking forward to host our third BASI® Learn from the Leaders conference in Germany! In a 3-day frame Rael Isacowitz, Andry Vleeming, Samantha Wood and Jessie Lee will share their knowledge about Pilates and anatomy of the human body. Rael, well known as the founder and director of BASI® Pilates and one of the key presenters in the world will offer two different workshops as well as his famous mat class, whereas Samantha will enrich our knowledge about Pilates in a more physiotherapeutic context. We are especially proud to welcome Andry Vleeming, one of the main international specialists for anatomy, who will give us a deep insight about the human body from a scientific point of view. Jessie Lee has extensive knowledge and experience with Pilates and rehabilitation through her own experience as a dancer with injuries. She teaches people from all walks of life, ranging from elite athletes and dancers to clients with rehabilitation issues and anybody who wishes to improve their health and movement. Alan Herdman studied at the London School of Contemporary Dance and was working as a teacher and dancer when, in the late 1960s, he was invited to New York to learn about the Joseph Pilates Method. There he worked intensively with Carola Trier and Bob Fitzgerald, two instructors who had been trained by Pilates himself.
The BASI Learn from the Leaders will be followed by the Master I program taught by Rael Isacowitz June 29 -July 1, 2020.
The BASI Learn From The Leaders conference originated in the early 1990s and has been a leading global Pilates education resource for more than 25 years. 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.
On the surface, BASI LFTL was a venue for continuing Pilates education and practice, but what made the conference so special was the attendees, themselves.
"The last few days have been so very special. My gratitude and heartfelt thanks to everyone from around the world who made such an effort to be here and in turn made BASI Learn From The Leaders 2019 such a success. Exhaustion has taken over my body, yet as I reflect back on the weekend I would not change a thing. You were all amazing! Until we meet again. Thank YOU!" -Rael Isacowitz
