Important Update for current BASI students on BASI Pilates teacher training courses

In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic BASI Pilates founder, Rael Isacowitz sent an important message to all the BASI students around the world. He thanked them and reassued them that he loves them and reminded students,

“We are all BASI family and we’ll take care of you.”
