Application Process Explained - 2018


We have tried to make the application process as simple as possible. We have two pages of content that we are requesting. The first page is Public Information which will be visible to anyone on the web once the voting phase begins. The second page is Confidential Information which we will not share with anyone. We will use the confidential information to contact you and as part of the application review process.

There is no charge to enter the competition and you do not need to be a member of Pilates Anytime to enter.

We suggest that you print out this page prior to starting the application to make sure that you have all the information available. You cannot save the application and come back later.

Teaching Experience (Option A)

Please briefly describe your Pilates teaching experience. The following is an example from our website:

After earning her BA in Communication at UC Santa Barbara, Kristi began studying the Pilates Method guided by Cathie Murakami. She earned a certificate from Synergy Systems™ and the PhysicalMind Institute®. In 1997 Kristi aligned with Master Teacher Rael Isacowitz, founder and director or the world-renowned Pilates education organization, BASI Pilates®. Kristi earned her certification with BASI in 1998 and shortly after graduation was honored to have been invited to work with Rael in his studio in Costa Mesa, California. It continues to be a privilege for Kristi to call Rael her mentor and friend. Kristi has since been named a Principal Teacher for BASI Pilates®, a job that entails development of advanced education. It also allows her the opportunity to teach the BASI Pilates® certification in places like South Africa, China, Australia, Greece, and both coasts of the US. In 2003, Kristi had the unique opportunity of participating in the DVD series Rael Pilates. The three-part series was voted number one Pilates DVD by Health Magazine for 2006.

Resume (Option B)

If you have a resume (CV) please upload it. The formats that will work best are Word documents and pdfs.
