BASI Pilates® is a leading Pilates education academy, with a reputation for innovation, dedication and academic excellence.
Established in 1989 by world-renowned Pilates educator, Rael Isacowitz, BASI Pilates preserves the legacy of Joseph and Clara Pilates, while complementing their method with contemporary scientific knowledge.
BASI stands for Body Arts and Science International, which is both the name of the academy’s holding company and an affirmation of its approach to Pilates studies. Though a BASI education is anchored in anatomy, physiology and scientific principles, its emphasis is on the aesthetic quality of every movement.
The BASI Pilates network extends to over 20 countries and encompasses thousands of graduates. Teacher training courses are on the go constantly, in over 100 locations around the world. Our faculty and hosts are unsurpassed as teachers and mentors, and our administrative staff are dedicated to the support and welfare of our students.
Blake Brody® In-Studio Footwear provides fashion-conscious women with innovative eco-friendly shoes to use during studio activities like yoga and pilates.

The result is a stylish shoe that encourages stability, prevents cramping and protects against moisture and irritants.
Each shoe in the line is made with environmentally-conscious and humane materials that were hand-selected for their unique characteristics. The progressive technology behind the material allows the show to be breathable, antimicrobial and delicate enough to maintain a feel for studio surfaces.
