This course is our brand new Pilates Instructor qualification for all those without a health care background. This 13 day course consists of an induction day, followed by 6 x 2 day workshops that will teach over 100 Pilates Matwork exercises.
This comprehensive course, delivered by APPI’s world renowned degree level health practitioners, is focused on teaching anyone from a non health degree background the skills and knowledge required to teach Pilates in a 1:1 or class environment.
The course will include APPI’s unique insight into how the body works by delivering on course anatomy and physiology sessions (in addition to online and support materials), and bring the elements of applied anatomy usually taught at physiotherapy degree level courses.
Each day a different part of the body will be reviewed, and then a small surface anatomy session will allow all the pieces of the puzzle of understanding anatomy and movement to be pieced together. This will then be linked to the Pilates movements that focus on that area of the body as a way of allowing the student to link together the theories of applied anatomy and the movements of Pilates.
Over the 13 day program the full 34 traditional Matwork Pilates exercises, plus additional standing, kneeling and seated warm up and cool down exercises, will be taught. In addition, the APPI’s unique Pilates exercise level adaptations will enable the course participants to train a client through a step by step process of achieving successful Pilates movements. In the APPI repertoire the majority of the traditional 34 movements have been broken down into 4-6 levels, allowing a client with no exercise history, or limited movement control a chance to slowly progress in a painfree, achievable and structured program. Following successful completion of the training you will be empowered to teach 1:1 as well as group Pilates Matwork sessions:
