APPI training courses are designed for physiotherapists or those with a physiotherapy degree equivalent, allowing participants to use their existing Physiotherapy knowledge and apply this to the practice of Pilates in the therapy setting.
Since the UK's lockdown, APPI have started run their courses via live stream and this has been proving very popular. Having cancelled all 3 courses scheduled to be hosted by APCP this year, we are now offering members the opportunity to opt for a live streamed course instead. For further information about how this works, see the APPI website .
Level 1 Matwork (Foundation)
The first level in the matwork Pilates training series has been designed for those teaching in the rehabilitation setting. Based on the most up to date evidence in spinal stability, pelvic stability, strength/conditioning and pain - this is the essential Pilates training tool for all health professionals.
This two day course introduces Pilates technique, relevant research and beginner level exercises. APPI have analysed all 34 traditional matwork Pilates exercises, and broken them down into a step by step guide from day one pain right through to elite level sport. Most importantly, every stage has a clinical reason behind why you should choose that exercise for your client.
- Pilates as you have never seen it before, the complete programme based on pain, pathology and function.
- Understand the evidence behind this popular exercise method.
- Learn the 5 stage rehabilitation programme that is now leading the industry in the UK.
- Identify how to clinically reason every exercise and incorporate it into your practice.
PLEASE NOTE: Anyone wishing to complete an APPI Kids & Teens Workshop must have completed a 2-day Matwork Level 1 Pilates course prior to the workshop.
This course is available to APCP members only
