When you hear the word symposium or conference, the normal inclination is to dread the long periods of sitting and visualising death by power-point. This event was different – very different. “The BASI family”, a term we often refer to, to express how supportive and close-knitted we all are although scattered all over the world. This Symposium was indeed like a reunion of brothers and sisters.
Coming together with likeminded professionals with who you share a common goal... Learning more, from each other, about what you feel passionate about... I am really excited to join again this year BASI LFTL and I can not wait to meet BASI family.
October was another month filled with exciting activities around the globe. This month we are sharing Rael Isacowitz's interview with Voll Pilates, plus Issue #2 of the BASI Gazette, brand new videos, highlights from Rael's Mentor Program in Italy, upcoming programs around the world, and awesome features from the BASI community.
The BASI Pilates Team
Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to travel to South Africa to attend the Learn from the Leaders Symposium held in Pretoria. I am so grateful I had this opportunity and I truly believe that the BASI South Africa team put together a very memorable event. I can only imagine,how much effort, time and dedication was put out there in order to organize everything. And, I would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone involved in making this happen.
Whatever side of the political spectrum you sit, no one can deny the “tribalism” that exists in America today. We have been forced to take sides and have been driven to the extremes of those sides. It is with sadness that I observe that the Pilates community is a microcosm of the tribalism we see in politics.
