BASI Pilates Australia is going to host the world’s first virtual BASI LFTL on 17th & 18th April 2021!

We’ve been working with BASI Pilates founder, Rael Isacowitz and have come up with a very exciting format.

In this new conference format, we are offering all participants LIVE, VIRTUAL and ON DEMAND access to all workshops and mat classes, offering exceptional value to our participants!

What to expect

We’ve reworked the live component of the conference to showcase our impressive lineup of international presenters – Rael Isacowitz, Theo Botha and Meredith Rogers will deliver their workshops live across the two days. Each day is bookended with live mat classes for all to attend. There will be 4 x live mat work classes and 4 x live workshops.

Across the live virtual weekend, workshops and workouts will be recorded for you to view again!


No need to choose or miss out because you will have access to ALL the workshops and workouts! That’s 4 x pre-recorded workshops and 4 x prerecorded mat work classes. PLUS we’ve added the three Pre Conference workshops as a bonus inclusion  (valued at $395).

Connect & Attend from a Host studio

BASI Pilates is renowned for its sense of community connection and family. We are working through ideas to be able to bring small groups together with LIVE meet up locations across Australia. Choose to attend in Sydney at Dynamic Pilates CBD studio, Brisbane at Pilates Studio 64, Perth at Rig Pilates or Auckland, New Zealand at The Physio Pilates Studio.

This entire event has been reformatted to be able to be viewed from your home or private studio. So regardless of how you attend, it’s going to be a great weekend!

The Original BASI LFTL Concept

The concept for BASI Learn from the Leaders (LFTL) Conferences originated in Queensland in the early nineties. Founder and owner of BASI Pilates, Rael Isacowitz, conceived the series as a forum in which leaders of the Pilates world could come together to further the philosophy and practice of Pilates education in a collaborative manner. Since then the conference has been held with great success in the USA, Australia, South Africa, Germany and Greece.

So who is the LFTL conference for?

The conference welcomes Pilates professionals and enthusiasts with experience from all Pilates schools and traditions.

Get ready to immerse yourself in the world of Pilates.
