Matwork Series

The APPI Matwork Pilates teacher training series has been designed for those of you teaching in the rehabilitation setting or looking to offer clinically-safe Pilates techniques. It is the essential Pilates training tool for all health professionals.

The APPI curriculum is designed by Physiotherapists specifically for those working in the field of rehabilitation; therefore pathology, normal movement patterns, neuro-muscular timing and neural pathomechanics are addressed in relation to each exercise. The traditional Pilates repertoire is broken down into clearly defined levels to ensure a standard, gradual progression towards normal functional movement. Scientific evidence on segmental spinal stabilisation and on pelvic stability forms the theoretical foundation for the APPI curriculum.

APPI's Matwork Series consists of three levels (Matwork Level 1, 2 & 3) and if you book all three levels at once you'll not only be on your way to becoming an APPI Pilates Instructor, but will save money too.  To find out more about each individual level you can use the below links:
