BASI PILATES – Mat Teacher Training Course or option: Fun Pilates Retreat at ZEN Rocks Mani

Monique Martinengo
10-17 Oct
From €950

NYSY Academy offers you a Mat Teacher Training Course as a retreat, giving you the opportunity to become one of the best trained BASI Pilates teacher on the Mat combining your summer vacation and retreating yourself at the magical premises of ZEN Rocks in Mani.

The Mat Work Teacher Training Course is considered the «crown jewel» of Pilates. It is the essence of the system, without which a great void would exist.

The MTTC provides a thorough education in the Mat Work and its infinite applications. In addition to being the foundation on which all else is based, it is also the perfect springboard to the CTTC.

For those who don’t want to participate at the Mat Teacher Training Course, we give you the option to practice Basi Pilates classes and Retreat yourself at the Zen Rocks.

We are very happy to host Monique Martinengo, BASI Faculty once more this year, who will teach the Mat course and the Mat practices during the Retreat at Zen Rocks Mani.

About Monique

Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours!

Monique has a simple philosophy. Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours! Monique is the epitome of friendly, observant, understanding and professional. Not afraid to challenge herself, Monique has gone from studying Consumer Science to exploring Europe while working and cruising on a Yacht to diving into fashion retail. After a short yet very successful career in retail, Monique decided that her purpose was more personal, and she found her calling in the world of Pilates.

In 2008, Monique qualified as a BASI Comprehensive instructor under the guidance of Theo Botha. Having found her niche, Monique joined Ashley Ritchie’s studio in Johannesburg and immediately hurled herself into learning and understanding the needs of clients and fellow instructors. Monique has always been active and pursued a healthy lifestyle from a young age. In her earlier years she participated and excelled in many sports. Ballet was one of her true loves, which inspired her to follow the journey of Pilates.

Good movement and understanding the principles of Pilates are what inspire Monique today to ensure that as many people as she can reach understand the essence of moving freely and with ease. Monique continues with her own personal journey to learn and by doing so she ensures that her clients receive sessions that are current and relevant to their personal needs. Whether it is an individual session or group session, she delivers the same exceptional quality to ensure that her clients leave her studio feeling re-energised and inspired. Monique’s commitment to making a difference by doing what she loves has led her to become a BASI faculty member of which she is extremely honoured and incredibly proud to be part of such a dynamic global team.

Monique truly values the guidance and continued education she receives from many of the incredible international leaders, which she passionately shares with everyone. Having done the Mentor Program, Pilates for Injuries and Pathologies, Innovations in Pilates to name a few, Monique thrives on learning and sharing this knowledge with her clients and students. With this extensive armoury, Monique teaches the BASI method within South Africa and has travelled to China and South Korea.
