Excellent feedback from the Matwork Level 2 course with Lynley Eason:

"The course was really good, I enjoyed it a lot and found it informative. I’d been to the venue before, so in terms of logistics it was all good. The instructor, Lynley, was brilliant. I would like to really emphasise that. She was really fun, had lots of knowledge and went out of her way to make sure we understood things. Myself and another participant actually stayed back a bit late on the first day as we had quite a few questions, and Linley very kindly went through things with us and made sure we had a good understanding before we left. In terms of things to improve, I’m not sure I have any comments, I think there was a good balance of practical and theory, and the course ran very well."

3 IN 3, another 1 is never too much investment in continuing training, especially in tools we believe to be really relevant, making us more capable and efficient professionals. It is an effort that is always worth it. I have completed all 3 levels of clinical Pilates under the vision of APPI Health Group provided through Bwizer – not forgetting the completion of Scoliosis – ready for new challenges. Thank you APPI Health Group, for providing us your amazing work and knowledge!

Pilates for Cyclists is a fantastic specialist CPD course we offer. Here is the feedback from our latest date:

This was obviously a very well thought out and planned course. I enjoyed every minute of the day and couldn’t wait to put it into practise. As always APPI have delivered a fantastic course which I will be recommending to my co-workers. Thank you for a fantastic day, I look forward to signing up for another course soon.

The course gave a great insight into the biomechanics of cycling both for amateurs and professionals which was really useful - how to optimally set up the right positioning on the bike and the mechanics of movement therein. The academic and technical information was great.

As a keen cyclist and also treating a number of amateur cyclists I found the course relevant, interesting, well taught and backed up, where possible, by research. Really good course.

[I enjoyed] Glenn’s knowledge and enthusiasm.

the content was innovative and fresh.

So specific to the target audience.

Good balance of relevant theory and review of current literature without losing the majority of a practical based session. Great new ideas on how to change and apply some of the matwork exercises.
