Course Description

Pilates for Rehabilitation – Matwork Level 1 teaches you a fully integrated Matwork Pilates program that can be used in any clinical setting, without the need for specialized equipment. This highly popular course is dedicated to detailed and accurate Pilates teacher training.

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.

Learn the evidence behind this popular exercise method via a complete programme based on pain, pathology and function.
