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.

HEAVY BREATHER ALERT!  Progression. Prone 1, 2 and 3! I will teach the first two exercises TOMORROW @bpa_phoenix beginning the first module of @basipilates Graduate Program! My Prone 3, from the Legacy Program, is a work in progress for me—no pun intended! My intention is NOT to have that little “jump” bringing the bar up and down. Back extension and shoulder flexion are challenging and so very motivating for me!#neuromusculartraining #intentionalmovement #pilates #practicemakesprogress #practicecorrectly #basipilates #bpa_usa #raelisacowitz #basifamily #basifaculty #basilegacyprogram #basisystems #pilatesteacher #pilatesstudent #pilatesforeverybody #pilatesforathletes #pilatesfordancers #pilatesformen #pilatesforkids #pilatesforlife #pilatesbody #pilatesfitness #strongwomen #thepowerofaging #hardworkpaysoffs #dowhatyouthinkyoucannotdo #nowisnow #thisissixtyone

Impromptu and a bit rushed demonstration of Hanging Back with Pull Up in a session yesterday with a couple of long time clients! I will film them next time!!!

Rael says “the breath gives birth to the movement!” As you can hear while I do these last three Hanging Front, this one is a BIG BABY!  I consistently rotate the more challenging back extension exercises in my practice sessions. And I never take it for granted how much effort I need to execute them correctly for my body!!! #grateful #pilates #intentionalmovement #practicecorrectly #basimentorprogram #basipilates #rael_isacowitz #bpa_usa #basisystems #basilegacyprogram #basifaculty #basifamily #pilatesforathletes #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforkids #pilatesformen #pilatesfitness #pilatesbody #pilateslifestyle #basiteacher #basistudent #pilatesforeverybody #strongwomen #hardworkpaysoffs #dowhatyouthinkyoucannotdo #thepowerofaging #thisissixtyone #onzieleggings

This Handstand on the Ladder Barrel is a continuous personal challenge and my first attempts in 2023!

BASI Family!!! Foundation/Mat ✅ @bpa_phoenix There is nothing sweeter for a teacher than watching a group of students, who begin as strangers with something in common,  become bonded for life before my eyes! I noticed in our first picture from a couple of weeks ago after Day 1, that we were not touching each other!!! #proudteacher #pilates #basipilates #bpa_phoenix #rael_isacowitz #basisystems #thejourneybegins

I dedicate this Jackknife on the F2 Chair to my colleague and friend @nataschaeyber @basigermany  We practiced together this morning (gotta love Zoom!) She is days away from hosting @basipilates  Master ll Program with @rael_isacowitz teaching online.  Natascha is assisting Rael live in Germany, with another incredible Principle Faculty Maria Sylla assisting Rael @bpa_usa VERY exciting!  I did have to put my saddle on and exhale a dozen times trying to keep my legs perpendicular on the way down!

Sunday is funday! My intention with this classical Joseph Pilates Cat Walkover Prep, taught in @basipilates Mentor program, is effortless effort. Not quite there yet! I am starting here with my weaker left side, and although my right leg is not yet straight, my pelvis and arms are aligned and my mid back extensors are working! Progress! I am an athlete with many years of overuse injuries and compensations, who has chosen to retrain my body, to learn, practice and share this work!

Friday’s practice—Handstands of any kind are certainly challenging for those of us with limited shoulder flexion and rounded thoracic spine. This is the Handstand on @basisystems Wunda Chair from @basipilates Mentor program.  My intention is to be more vertical and stable as I press the pedal down and up.

Intentional movement!!Yesterday’s @basipilates Mentor practice ended with this Hanging Front! It has not always, been attainable for me with the correct mechanics! I’m heading back to @bpa_usa to take the Mentor for my 4th time. I am as excited as my first time in 2015!

Practice time! We know in Pilates if there’s a “prep” there’s a “full!” And if there’s a 1, there’s probs a 2, and maybe a 3! @basipilates Mentor program, the first step in the Legacy Program, presents so many challenges and is a huge leap from the Comprehensive work! And Star 1 Prep leads to so many other exercises!!! Who is joining me for the Mentor @bpa_usa with @rael_isacowitz Sept 23-25 ??? #pilates #mybirthdayweekend #basipilates #bpa_usa #rael_isacowitz #basisystems® #basifaculty #basifamily #basistrong #pilatesreformer #pilatesbody #pilatesforathletes #pilatesformen #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforeverybody #pilatesforkids #pilatesforswimmers #pilatesfitness #pilatesstudent #pilatesteacher #practicepracticepractice #strongwomen #neverstopexploring #hardworkpaysoffs #onzie #dowhatyouthinkyoucannotdo

Intentional movement is so much more than just the exercise! Thank you @rael_isacowitz for sharing your life’s work! This is Roll Over Horizontal Start Position from @basipilates Master 2 part of the Legacy Program!  I’m on my fave @basisystems F2 Arm Chair. And it all starts with the Pelvic Curl! #pilates #basilegacyprogram #basipilates #rael_isacowitz #basisystems #bpa_usa #basifaculty #basifamily #basistrong #pilatesforathletes #pilatesformen #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforkids #pilatesforswimmers #pilatesforeverybody #pilatesteacher #pilatesstudent #pilateslifestyle #pilatesbody #pilatesfitness #strongwomen #intentionalmovement #practicepracticepractice #alwaysastudent #hardworkpaysoffs #neverstopexploring #nowisnow #thisissixty
