APPI Pilates Matwork Level 3 – intermediate/advanced builds upon the movements, understanding, cueing skills and exercise selection framework of Matwork Level 1.


Theory and practical workshops over the two days review effective cueing skills including verbal, visual and tactile teaching elements. Discussions of clinical application of the Pilates movements occurs at the time of their teaching to help participants understand the relevance of these exercises. Case studies are reviewed and participants have the chance to design and discuss treatment plans for particular clients. Twelve new intermediate and advanced exercises, including controlled strength exercises are also taught to widen your repertoire.  This course will give you tools to enable you to progress clients from the rehab stage to higher level function and fitness.
