Announcing APPI in South Korea

APPI are thrilled to welcome Women’s Health Pilates Centre in South Korea, into our network of our valued partnerships across the globe. South Korea is strongly recognised as an emerging market for Pilates, and teaming up with an organisation such as WHPC is a welcoming achievement for all of us at APPI.

We in turn are confident we can strengthen WHPC’s ability to offer bespoke training modules, ultimately broadening their spectrum of courses provided, whilst being continuously supported by the experienced team here at APPI. 

APPI’s CEO Glenn Withers commented that he can foresee an exciting and successful partnership between their and our organisations, both of whom share common goals in aspiring to grow APPI in the Korean Peninsula, and which was evident during negotiations and discussions with Mark at WHPC during the preceding months leading up to this wonderful announcement. 

We see this as the next chapter in APPI education, being enjoyed on a truly worldwide level, which resonates with the APPI concept and which the whole team is striving to deliver to an exceptional standard, and which we now trust Mark and his own team at Women’s Health Pilates Centre will be proud to be a part of.

Why did Mark choose APPI?

Becoming an APPI Partner in South Korea as the first healthcare professional to bring rehabilitation/Clinical Pilates in Korea, I was looking for the best quality of Pilates training program for Healthcare professionals as well as non-healthcare professionals. I see that APPI has a lot of potential for benefits in Pilates, fitness as well as clinical settings and rehabilitation purposes.

When I was studying my post-graduate program at the University of Queensland, I was impressed by the quality of Australian Physiotherapy education (both theory and practical part). Since my focus was musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy at U of Q, my perspective and knowledge grew immensely.

I also have an interest in Pilates as I saw the many benefits it has for health and fitness. When I came across that APPI was created by passionate Australian physiotherapists and saw their program, I couldn't wait to work with them!

What is your aim in becoming a Partner?

I find that this is one way I could help to improve our profession for clinicians as well as for clients and our community to provide a better quality of service for their safe recovery of function of movements and their quality of life. Not to mention, APPI can create fun for clinician and clients. 
I also want to let the people in Korea know that APPI is not only an exceptional program fit for everyone but it is also a very fun way to stay healthy and be used as rehabilitation.
