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 the 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.
