BASI stands for Body Arts and Science International. BASI Pilates is based on the classical repertoire of Joseph and Clara Pilates’ fitness system to alleviate ill health.
What makes BASI Pilates different than other Pilates methods?
BASI incorporates contemporary experience and scientific knowledge to expand upon the work and intentions of the original creator of Pilates, Joseph Pilates.
What are the benefits of incorporating BASI methods into therapeutic programs?
The utilization of the BASI Pilates method into a therapeutic rehab program allows patients to learn the art of controlled movements to improve flexibility, strength and endurance. Pilates emphasizes breath, alignment, strength (abdominals, pelvic floor, hips, lower back and shoulder girdle), coordination and balance as necessary to improve overall stability, fitness and quality of life. Your BASI trained physical therapist will design a program with a unique set of exercises geared to optimally treat your specific symptoms and achieve your individualized goals.
