World Recognised Pilates Teacher Training 

The Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute (APPI) Clinical Pilates Certification - Matwork & Equipment is taught in 22 countries and is recognised amongst health practitioners globally as the gold standard in Pilates teacher training. 


Join a growing community of over 50,000 Pilates Instructors. 


Designed for Physiotherapists & Allied Health Professionals 

APPI has spent years developing what is now recognised as the premier international Pilates Rehabilitation program. Founded by Australian Physiotherapists Glenn and Elisa Withers in 1999, The APPI Pilates Method has been designed specifically for use by physiotherapists and other rehabilitation professionals working in the clinical setting. This comprehensive Pilates instructor training will give you all the tools required to teach effectively in the clinical environment but also the confidence to move clients beyond the rehab phase to full health and fitness. 


Clinical approach to training that can be immediately implemented 

The APPI Pilates curriculum is designed specifically for those working in the clinical setting; therefore pathology, normal movement patterns, neuro-muscular timing, and neural pathomechanics are addressed in relation to each exercise. The traditional Pilates repertoire is broken down into clearly defined levels to ensure a standard, gradual progression towards normal functional movement. Scientific evidence on segmental spinal stabilisation and on pelvic stability forms the theoretical foundation for the APPI curriculum.

On each level of the certification series, you will gain skills and knowledge that you can immediately implement into your clinical practice. 


Flexible Training Options

Our training is flexible - you can spread it out to suit your schedule - as long as you complete all levels and your exams within two years from the start of your Matwork Level 1 course.

Select TBC for any course dates you are unsure of and book those in at a later date.

APPI Clinical Pilates Equipment Certification Series



Absolutely loved the course! Katherine was fabulous and I loved how she related the exercises and content back to a clinical setting.


Good sized class to allow us all to practice with enough assistance, good variety of exercises and thorough coverage. Really like the online learning platform. 


The feedback while you performed the exercises and how the presenter also talked about other modalities while talking about the exercises.


It links all the pilates movement to the physiotherapy theory.


The information on muscle slings, force closure, the readings and how the exercises can relate to anyone in clinical practice.


The instructor Susan was amazing. She took the time to answer all questions even staying through the lunch break. She is very down to earth and knowledgable. 

APPI Clinical Pilates teacher training is designed for physiotherapists, osteopaths, exercise physiologists, doctors, sports scientists, chiropractors, rehabilitation therapists, occupational therapists, degree qualified myotherapists and students undertaking an allied health degree.
