APPI Pilates Matwork Certification Series


APPI Pilates Equipment Certification Series 


World Recognised Pilates Training 

The Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute (APPI) Matwork & Equipment Certification Series is taught around the world and is recognised amongst health practitioners globally. 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 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 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 Option 

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.
