Introduction to the F2 System
2-Day Workshop - with BASI Senior Faculty, Mariam Younossi

Premier! Join for the first 2-Day F2 Workshop outside the US.

F2 stands for Form and Function, two concepts that are the basis of this ever-evolving system. The F2 lies at the heart of BASI Systems’ state-of-the-art designs. In this F2 System workshop presented by Mariam Younossi, we will explore the repertoire’s evolution, the apparatus’s, and the symbiotic relationship they share.

You will be introduced to the uniqueness of the F2 Chair – an amalgamation of the original Arm Chair, Ladder Barrel, and Box. The versatility of this expansive piece of apparatus, which works the body in every conceivable position, is unparalleled.

The F2 System can be added to the Spine Corrector, Wunda Chair, Reformer and Cadillac. You will be guided through an extensive repertoire, with exercises on the full range of Pilates apparatus. 

This is the most up-to-date information about the F2 System.
