TESTIMONIALS

“I love the new equipment! Some of the features take some getting used to, but in a good way for me. It is deepening my practice–makes me more aware of my need to stabilize my body and not rely on the equipment to do it.”

Janiece S, 6 years with The Pilates Body, Central Phoenix

“It makes me work harder for stability, which is so exciting.”

Mayme K, 8 years with The Pilates Body, Central Phoenix

“I love it! It is so smooth and comfortable! I even feel that many of the movements are more beautiful on the new equipment–is that crazy? I could keep my feet on the footbar all day, it feels so good!”

Lisa S, 12 years with The Pilates Body, Central Phoenix

“It is beautiful, comfortable, and I absolutely love it!”

Barbara B, 4 years with The Pilates Body, Central Phoenix

“The design is unbelievable! It is beyond any equipment I have used or seen. I knew from looking at it and feeling it that it was airplane grade aluminum, even before Jody told me. The creator must be a genius!”

Fred S, retired pilot, 4th year with The Pilates Body, Central Phoenix

The F2 System lies at the heart of BASI Systems Pilates equipment. A true innovation for Pilates movement, it offers unprecedented versatility and precision in spring angle and resistance settings. Springs can be attached to multiple ports on your Reformer, Cadillac, Barrels, Chair and Spine Corrector. Multiple F2 Systems can be used simultaneously to inspire exciting new repertoire possibilities.

Back at it! Flying Eagle 2 from @basipilates Mentor Program is so powerful inside and out! Trying hard to reach my arms out to a T as my back extends to neutral for a nanosecond on my way up and back down! I am obviously a heavy breather when necessary—that exhale sure helped my abdominals keep me lifted and safe! This was during my break from Master 1 practice!!! 😁 #pilates #basipilates #bpa_usa #basilegacyprogram #basisystems #raelisacowitz #mybasilife #basifaculty #basifamily #pilatesteacher #pilatesstudent #practicepracticepractice #neverstopexploring #pilatesinstructor #pilatesbody #pilatesforathletes #pilatesformen #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforkids #pilatesforswimmers ##pilatesforeverybody #pilatesfit #strongwomen #hardworkpaysoff #intentionalmovement #onzieleggings #nowisnow

Sunday is Funday with Foot Work Long Box Sitting Series! This is from @basipilates Honors Program, part of the Legacy Program, as well as @rael_isacowitz Power of Aging Workshop! After a good warm up, this truly was a full body experience!!! Everything is working intentionally for stability, mobility, strength, and overall control of the movement!

Soaring into 60 with this Flying Eagle 2 from @basipilates Mentor Program, part of the Legacy Program. My practice last week was mostly from day 1, and this week I practiced day 2! So much of the work is out of my comfort zone, especially these back extension exercises. So much going on, and for me the key is using my abdominals like mad to hold my trunk up as safely as possible. A diagnosis of Stenosis several years ago put this exercise out of reach for me, and I have slowly rebuilt my support system. Some days are better than others!!!#pilates #dowhatyouthinkyoucannotdo #thisis60 #basipilates #basilegacyprogram #basisystems #raelisacowitz #basistrong #basifaculty #basifamily #powerofaging #practicepracticepractice #neverstopexploring #pilatesforathletes #pilatesformen #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforkids #pilatesforswimmers #pilatesforeverybody #pilatesfitness #pilatesbody #pilatesteacher #pilatesstudent #strongwomen #alwaysastudent #hardworkpaysoffs #onzieleggings #nowisnow

There is a reason for the Prep!!! When my body is ready, willing and able…Hanging Front from @basipilates Mentor Program, part of the Legacy Program. It is not simply about strength! After several Preps on each side, I could manage a couple of the full exercise.  YEARS of working on this one!

Friday practice—taking my time to get to this one! Up Stretch 2 with Trapeze from @basipilates Honors Program, the fourth step in the Legacy Program! After completing the inaugural Honors in 2019, repeating it in June 2021, I am slowly making my way through the exercises that I either haven’t tried yet, don’t need a “spotter” for, or haven’t succeeded with so far! #mybasijourney #pilates #basilpilates #basilegacyprogram #raelisacowitz #basisystems #basifamily #basifaculty #basistrong #practicepracticepractice #strongwomen #neverstopexploring #pilatesbody #pilatesforathletes #pilatesformen #pilatesfirkids #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforswimmers #pilatesforeverybody #pilatesfitness #itsnotaboutperfection #intentionalmovement #nowisnow #hardworkpaysoffs #swearisrael #trainingforsixty

Friday fun with this Rollover with the Roll-Up Bar from @basipilates Legacy Program on @basisystems Cadillac. It has taken me several years to be able to find the balance between the breath, the arms, and the abdominals to lift my pelvis and send my legs overhead without my arms touching the mat. Progress! The beauty of this work is that it is truly endless and we never stop learning!!! #pilates #practicepracticepractice #basipilates #basilegacyprogram #basisystems #rael_isacowitz #basifaculty #basifamily #basistrong #strongwomen #whatadifferenceabreathmakes #pilatesteacher #pilatesstudent #pilatesforathletes #pilatesformen #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforkids #pilatesforswimmers #pilatesforeverybody #pilatesfitness #pilatesbody #pilatesreformer #pilatescadillac #neverstopexploring #trainingforsixty #bewhereyouare #hardworkpaysoffs

Another work in progress from yesterday’s practice! Jackknife with Tower from @basipilates Honors Course, the fourth step of the Legacy Program! To think that it all starts with a Pelvic Curl!!! 😊 I can hear @rael_isacowitz saying “keep the 90 degree angle at the hip joint! I’m trying Rael!

Sunday is Funday! Practicing Up Stretch 2 Forearms w/Trapeze from @basipilates Honors Program, the fourth “step” in the Legacy Program.  Last weekend going through this course for the second time, allowed me to dig even deeper into this endless expansive body of work!

Friday’s practice included my commitment to work on things that are out of my comfort zone! I filmed this for a friend to view and decided to post my reality!
