Pilates Matwork Level One

About APPI’s Matwork Series

The APPI curriculum is designed by physiotherapists specifically for those working in the field of rehabilitation. They look at all types of pathology, movement patterns, neuro-muscular timing and neural pathomechanics to underpin the use of each and every exercise in the programme. The traditional Pilates repertoire is broken down into clearly defined levels to ensure a standard, gradual progression towards normal functional movement. Scientific evidence on movement dysfunction, segmental spinal stabilisation, integrated musculofascial patterns, pelvic stability and functional movement retraining form the theoretical foundation for the APPI curriculum.

The Matwork Pilates training series has been designed specifically for those teaching in the rehabilitation setting. Based on the most up to date evidence in spinal stability, pelvic stability, musculofascial alignment, functional retraining principles, strength/conditioning and pain science – this is the essential Pilates training tool for all health professionals.

During the course you will learn the vital aspects of assessment, screening, class planning, warm-ups and cool downs. This course begins to incorporate a large amount of standing Pilates exercises to further enhance the clients ability to progress the Matwork exercises from the Level 1 program. This leads to greater bone building capacity of the client and ads a large functional component to your classes.

On day 2 we progress onto class designs, population specific class programs, use of small equipment in Pilates classes and a specific workshop on stretching in Pilates classes. You will also learn and refine your cueing skills that are essential in running a seamless class and learn how to achieve flow in your Pilates mat classes.
