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.

Work in progress!!! I encourage myself daily to leave my comfort zone, and this is just one example. I know that without challenge there can be no change and to know success we must  struggle. I have zero gymnastics experience, no dance background, and work so hard on mobility in my tight hips, back and shoulders. This Cat Walkover Prep from @basipilates Mentor Program, part of the Legacy Program was out of reach for me for many reasons. I am determined and want to do it correctly for MY body. Yes, I am pressing into the cross bars with my feet. 😊My pelvis is almost where I need it to be! #pilates #basilpilates #rael_isacowitz #basisystems #basilegacy #basifamily #basifaculty #strongwomen #almost60 #basistrong #pilatesbody #pilatesfitness #pilatesforlife #pilatesteacher #pilatesstudent #practicepracticepractice #itsnotaboutperfection #intention #progressoverperfection #pilatesforathletes #pilatesformen #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforeverybody #pilatesforkids #neverstopexploring #alwaysastudent #hardworkpaysoffs #nowisnow #bewhereyouare #adidas

Roll Up into the weekend on @basisystems F2 Wunda Chair,  taught in @basipilates Legacy Program. Adding the arm springs is so good for the posterior chain (back body), including those horizontal shoulder abductors!

Proud teaching moments! This is Sioux, a client for over two decades, learning Up Stretch 2 on @basisystems F2 Arm Chair, as taught in the @basipilates Legacy Program and F2 Workshop. She learned the Tricep Push Ups last session and is working hard here to use her shoulder flexors and upper/mid back extensors going into the Up Stretch 2. Progress!!! Sioux @boutique.living was a collegiate swimmer. 😊 I am so proud and grateful to be her teacher! #pilates #basipilates #basisystems #rael_isacowitz #basifaculty #basifamily #mybasilife #basistrong #strongertogether #strongwomen #practicepracticepractice #pilatesteacher #pilatesstudent #itsnotaboutperfection #itsaboutintention #progressoverperfection #pilatesforathletes #pilatesformen #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforswimmers #pilatesforkids #pilatesforeverybody #pilatesbody #neverstopexploring #alwaysastudent #bewhereyouare #nowisnow #hardworkpaysoffs

My first Handstand, with some help from OUR mentor, teacher, and friend @rael_isacowitz !!! What a way to end day 3 of the @basipilatesaus Mentor Program, part of the @basipilates Legacy Program. Of course, Rael’s hands assisting me made it possible yesterday, and I will work towards not needing that outside help! I am grateful beyond words to have been a part of this incredible experience.

Yesterday! I am eternally grateful for @rael_isacowitz, my mentor, teacher and friend!!! REPOST:

The connection between Pilates instructor and client is not superficial...It's genuine, and it's deep. Guiding and assisting individuals in integrating their mind, body and spirit takes trust, humility, and compassion from both parties. Once that connection is there, it is there for SURE. At that point, sessions begin to feel less like exercise and more like dancing a beautiful duet.⁠

Hello! It’s been a while since I’ve been on social media.  A family emergency brought me to Israel over two weeks ago and life seemed to stand still. Things are definitely looking brighter!  I am so fortunate that my friend @tali_hanoch  has generously given me freedom to practice in her gorgeous @talukepilates studio while I’m here. 😊🙏Healing is a certainly a process and movement is invaluable.

Self care Monday! Time off from teaching this week gives me freedom to play in my studio! This  is Roll Up with Extension on the @basisystems F2 Arm Chair, one of my favorite pieces of equipment! This exercise is taught in @basipilates Foundation Program.  This is my extension! If I let go and simply “arch” my upper thoracic spine, I can’t control my ribs or lower back, so here I am, happy as a clam! #pilates #strongertogether #practicepracticepractice #itsnotaboutperfection #precisionoverperfection #basilpilates #basisystems #mybasilife #basifaculty #basifamily #raelisacowitz #pilatesforathletes #pilatesforeverybody #strongwomen #pilatesfitness #pilatesteacher #neverstopexploring #alwaysastudent #pilatesbody #pilatesformen #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforkids #hardworkpaysoffs #onziegear

My last attempt in yesterday’s practice. The struggle is real for me, so I continue to celebrate my progress with this @basipilates Teaser on @basisystems Combo Reformer. Such a challenging starting position for many reasons and always a work in progress! At the top, I tried so hard to straighten my arms more, lift my chest more, keep my trunk stable—yet, to start I kept my lower back and ribs on the box, my legs as still as possible, almost had my arms at shoulder level at the top, and felt that somehow it was correct for me! #mypilatesjourney #pilates #teaser #pilatesreformer #basipilates #basisystems #raelisacowitz #basifamily #basifaculty #mybasilife #itsnotaboutperfection #progressnotperfection #strongwomen #practicepracticepractice #pilatesteacher #alwaysastudent #neverstoplearning #pilatesforathletes #pilatesformen #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforkids #pilatesforeverybody #hardworkpaysoffs #adidasleggings #keepingitreal

Emerging with the Cat Stretch Kneeling! I have been “laying low” on social media lately. Feeling inspired today to work on pelvic/trunk stability, and a Pre-swim shoulder stretch.

My tendency is to take time and practice both strengths and weaknesses. Up Stretch 2 on  @basisystems F2 Arm Chair makes me focus on shoulder flexors (so tight) and back extensors (also tight) and the Tricep Push Up keeps my abdominals and Scapular stabilizers working!

Btw the @basipilates F2 2Day Workshop is awesome!#sundayisfunday #pilates #hardworkpaysoffs #strongertogether #strongwomen #practicepracticepractice #itsnotaboutperfection #bewhereyouare #basipilates #raeliscowitz #basifamily #basilegacy #basifaculty #pilatesteacher #neverstoplearning #pilatesfitness #pilatesforathletes #pilatesformen #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforkids #pilatesforeverybody #adidas #moveyourbody ...

This is Pike Floating Prep, from @basipilates #basilegacyprogram  Today I spent some time alone in the studio with no plan and in need of EVERYTHING! I ended up practicing some Honors and Master 2 work.  No matter where we are in our own practice, we need to honor ourSelves. ❤️ #sundayisfunday #pilates #basipilates #basisystems #raelisacowitz #basifamily #pilatesteacher #alwaysastudent #pilatesbody #pilatesfitness #pilatesforathletes #pilatesformen #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforkids #pilatesforeverybody #practicepracticepractice #neverstoplearning #itsnotaboutperfection #strongwomen #staystrongtogether #nowisnow

“Do what you think you cannot do!” Eleanor Roosevelt  This Magician series, from yesterday’s practice, is taught in @basipilates Legacy Program. It reminds me just how powerful the mind/body/soul can be! I first took the Mentor Program with @rael_isacowitz in 2015, repeated it in 2018, and am registered to take it again @basipilatesaus April 2021! I go back to this repertoire constantly!!! #pilates #basipilates #raelisacowitz #workinprogress #itsnotaboutperfection #practicepracticepractice #pilatesforathletes #pilatesformen #pilatesteacher #alwaysastudent #strongwomen #strongertogether #basisystems #mybasilife #pilatesfitness #pilatesbody #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforkids #pilatesforeverybody #hardworkpaysoffs

Early morning practice/review for my @basipilates Pilates for Men Workshop online Oct 4! This Hanging Front Prep, taught in the BASI Legacy Program, is such a valuable exercise for so many of our clients—opening the hip flexors,  building and utilizing upper body strength and stability, with abdominal control to balance the back extensor work!

Sunday is Funday...Grateful for TIME  in a world that seems completely out of control, to say the least.  Working on Jack Knife from @basipilates Comprehensive program on the @basisystems F2 Wunda Chair! Last rep clearly hearing my “inner” @rael_isacowitz voice saying “legs up and pelvis forward!” My abs and back extensors we’re trying so hard to get that straight line at the top. Progress!!! #pilates #nowisnow #stayhealthystaystrong #basipilates #basisystems #mybasilife #basifamily #basifaculty #breathe #strongertogether #strongwomen #pilatesteacher #neverstoplearning #alwaysastudent #pilateslifestlye #pilatesfitness #itsnotaboutperfection #practicepracticepractice #pilatesforathletes #pilatesformen #pilatesfordancers #pilatesforkids #pilatesforeverybody #sharethelove #hardworkpaysoffs #controlwhatyoucan
