The APPI Matwork Pilates teacher training series is one of the world's most widely used rehabilitation programs. Our unique step by step program allows your client to begin Pilates from any level of pain, dysfunction or exercise level and has been designed for those of you teaching in the rehabilitation setting or looking to offer clinically-safe Pilates techniques.

The APPI curriculum is designed by physiotherapists specifically for those working in the field of rehabilitation. We 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.


Matwork Level 1 - 6th & 7th November 2021

Matwork Level 2 - 22nd & 23rd January 2022

Matwork Level 3 - 12th & 13th March 2022

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.
