Athens BASI Pilates Conference:

LEARN FROM THE LEADERS

Powerful Women Pioneers in Pilates

September 4-6, 2020

A NYSY Studios event

NYSY Studios is very excited to announce that on September 4-6, 2020 a luminous event will be taking place in Athens organized by NYSY Academy and Vivi Letsou: This BASI Pilates Conference, in the tradition of the Learn from the Leaders events, will be more than a mere Pilates Conference.

Powerful Women Pioneers in Pilates practice and training will be bringing their experience, wisdom, and insight to share with Pilates teachers and practitioners from all over the world and infuse us with fresh power and inspiration.

These inspirational Pilates Workshops will be led by seminal Pilates Masters such as Lolita San Miguel, who was one of the first and foremost students of Joseph Pilates, and one of the first two teachers to be certified by Joseph Pilates.  Lolita now is a Master Pilates teacher, and a true leading figure in the Pilates method internationally.  Moreover, what is different about this conference, is the aim to shed light in the importance women played in the growth of Pilates.

Joseph Pilates was a powerful and influential man but the support of his wife Clara, a steady and compassionate teacher, cannot be underestimated.

Some of these Powerful Women will be sharing their strong teaching style with us in Athens this September. Of great importance is not only their charisma and talent in teaching Pilates, but the story behind their strength, the obstacles they had to overcome, significant difficulties which served as  inspiration that kept them going. It is this story, HERstory, that fuels their power and contribution in Pilates.  Each one of the guest teachers, a Powerful Woman Pioneer in Pilates, will have a story to share, and to inspire us with…

You, the audience will get to ask questions and find out the secret behind these women’s successful and powerful teaching careers in Pilates…

–What made these Powerful Women Pioneer Teachers strong in their teaching?

–What is the personal story, and were some of the challenges, and life adversities they had to overcome?

–How did these challenges affect their Pilates practice and teaching?

–What is the Power key energy or message that these teachers want to share with the world now through Pilates?

–And how did these Powerful Women Pioneers influenced and enriched the world of Pilates Practice and Teaching?

Every Workshop presented at this Athens BASI LFTL Pilates Conference will include Pilates Practice and Theory.   You will get to participate in many exciting workshops and gain great knowledge and experience on how to apply Pilates in different cases and situations.  The audience will gain new valuable knowledge and experience, along with the new insights that come from the wisdom of all these teachers.

Some of the subjects presented through these teachers,

these Powerful Women Pioneers in Pilates will be…

  • Breast Cancer Recovery through Pilates with Alexandra Rossopoulou
  • Lolita San Miguel shares her Pilates Foundation & Master Practice

  • Sheri Long shares her Pilates for the Athlete

This Conference was originally envisioned by Vivi Letsou during the 2019 BASI LFTL Conference in Newport, California. Sensing the Power of so many Women Pioneer Teachers surrounding Rael and BASI gave her the inspiration.  Her friend, Pilates Teacher and Mentor, Rael Isacowitz, founder of BASI Pilates, and avid supporter of Women Teachers throughout his life and career, welcomed this initiative with open arms.  Rael

often talks of the role his teacher Kathy Grant played in his life, and the importance of Women Teachers in BASI.  He will be sending his welcome address through Live Video.

Men and Women with an interest in Pilates as teachers or practitioners are whole heartedly welcome to join us in the heart of Athens, next September, in order to attend and participate with sharing their own stories of Pilates practice & life.
