BASI PILATES Mat Intensive Program & Retreat at Zen Rocks Mani with Natascha Eyber, BASI Principal Faculty

April 9, 2022 - April 14, 2022

Dates: April 9-14, 2022

Learn to teach up to advanced-level clients on the Mat.

At BASI we regard Pilates Mat work as the “crown jewel” of Pilates.

The Pilates Mat Intensive Program is the perfect vehicle for learning the principles of the Pilates Method. It is affordable, easy to integrate into different settings, and a great way to introduce people to Pilates.

The Mat Intensive Program provides a thorough education in the Pilates Mat work and its infinite applications, but is formatted into a shorter timeframe than the standard Mat Program. It is also the perfect springboard into the Comprehensive Programs that are offered in the U.S. and globally.


This 6-module program spans 4 days and is comprised of 24 hours of lecture, discussion, exercise practice, and exercise analysis.
