APPI's Pilates for Rehabilitation courses are 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 – 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.

Matwork Certification

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 SUJATA KHIRE or visit this website link here.

Matwork Level 1

APPI’s Matwork level 1 foundation course provides rehabilitation professionals with essential, fundamental knowledge to begin offering modified Pilates to their clients recovering from back pain and other injuries. Drawing upon relevant clinical research, APPI Pilates Matwork level 1 provides an evidence based approach to teaching Pilates in the clinical setting.

Matwork Level 2

The next level in your training program will focus solely on group teaching, and empower you to begin the journey from clinician to your own group Pilates Instruction. In this course you will learn the vital aspects of class planning, warm-ups, cool downs, standing exercises, and how to design population-specific classes.

Matwork Level 3

This two day course builds upon the movements, understanding, cueing and exercise selection from Matwork Level One. The conversion from beginner to more advanced movements will facilitate the unique shift from just stability to strength and conditioning. This progression from rehabilitation to full health and fitness is a crucial process to achieve your clients' goals of a full recovery.

Testimony

‘I have found the APPI education and approach so beneficial toward patient care, and it has completely changed the way I treat patients and progress their treatment. While I do not teach any specific APPI Pilates classes, I incorporate the exercises and techniques into almost every treatment at this point, particularly for neck, shoulder, and low back patients. Patients have responded very well to it, the progressions make them feel successful, the imagery we used in describing techniques has made communication much more clear, and the cues are so useful in making the exercises effective and specific. It is hands down the most effective course I have taken in my career as a PT, and would highly recommend it to others.' Anna, San Francisco (Certified APPI Matwork Pilates Instructor)

Testimony

‘‘We had a very positive experience hosting the Matwork Level 1 course at our local hospital. The APPI provide an excellent service – response to email and phone queries was always very prompt and informative and the staff were extremely pleasant to deal with. 
The course itself was conducted in a very informal manner with ample time provided for both practical and theoretical elements. 
All in all, I would have no hesitation in hosting another APPI course at our venue – a sentiment echoed by the the course participants, most of whom are very keen to partake in the Matwork Level 2 course in the near future!’ Colette Smee – South Tipperary General Hospital
