Course Overview

APPI’s Reformer Pilates Level 2 is the second step of the APPI Reformer Pilates Certification Series.

The reformer is considered the most versatile piece of Pilates equipment and the most popular single piece of Pilates equipment used for rehabilitation today. This course progresses on from what was learned in APPI’s Reformer Pilates Level 1 course. During the course, you will learn further beginner and intermediate level movements, teaching skills for small group sessions and planning skills for small group sessions. APPI is firmly established as the leading force in the delivery of safe and effective Pilates teacher training for the allied health industry. APPI courses are now available throughout the USA and in over 20 countries worldwide. Based on the most up to date evidence, APPI’s Pilates for Rehabilitation – Reformer level 2 course provides rehabilitation professionals with the essential, fundamental knowledge to begin offering reformer Pilates exercises to their clients.

*For all live (in-person) courses, we recommend the ratio of student-to-faculty to be 16:1.
