Based on the most up to date evidence in spinal stability, pelvic stability, strength/conditioning and pain – they are 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.
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. APPI have analyzed 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 that exercise for your client. APPI's Matwork Pilates training series is formed of three 2 day courses;
- Matwork Level One – The Foundation
- Matwork Level Two – Class Instructor
- Matwork Level Three – Intermediate & Advanced
Courses can be booked individually or you can receive a discounted rate by booking all three levels together. For more information on these courses, including course dates and locations please email Tiina Granroth.
