Thank you for joining our world renowned APPI Pilates Training Program!

Your journey starts with our Matwork Level One course where we will introduce you to all the foundations and principals of the APPI Method.

Course Outline

One of the world’s most popular Pilates training programs! APPI Pilates teaches you a fully integrated Matwork Pilates program that can be used in any clinical setting, without the need for specialised equipment. This highly popular Matwork training series, delivered throughout the world, is dedicated to detailed and accurate Pilates teaching. Based on the most up to date evidence of spinal stability, pelvic stability, strength and conditioning and pain—this is the essential Pilates training tool for all health professionals.

The APPI have analysed all 34 traditional Matwork exercises, and broken them down into a step-by-step guide from day 1 pain, right through to elite level sport. Most importantly, every stage has a clinical reason as to why you would choose a particular exercise for your client.

What will be covered in this course?

APPI’s Matwork Level 1 course is the first step in the Matwork certification series and gives you the skills to begin delivering 1:1, clinically reasoned, Pilates based treatment plans for your clients. During this course you will be given the essential, fundamental knowledge to begin offering Pilates to clients recovering from back pain and other injuries. Drawing upon relevant clinical research, this course provides an evidence-based approach to teaching Pilates in the clinical setting.

 

During the course you will:

Develop a solid foundation for Pilates teaching using the five key Pilates elements of the APPI Pilates approach.

Learn a variety of beginner level movements addressing lumbo-pelvic stability, postural education, correct movement patterning and body awareness.

Review recent research on spinal stabilisation and pelvic stability and apply this to the APPI beginner series of Pilates movements.

Be taught sixteen movements for training lumbo-pelvic, scapulo-thoracic and cervical stabilisation through a mixture of observation, self-participation and practice teaching.

Discuss the clinical application of the Pilates movements at the time of their teaching to greater understand how these can be applied to patients and clients after the course.

Review case studies and design and discuss your own treatment plans.
