Watch the exercsies: Arm press and variations on the split pedal chair.  This is one of the scapulothoracic exercises covered on the APPI Pilates Equipment Level 2 course.

APPI Pilates Equipment Level 2 builds upon the movements, understanding, cueing skills and exercise selection framework of Pilates Equipment Level 1. Theory and practical workshops over the two days review functional and surface anatomy of the scapulo-thoracic region.

Thirty-two movements for training scapulo-thoracic stabilisation on Pilates based equipment are taught through observation, participation and practice teaching. Discussions of clinical application of the Pilates movements occurs throughout teaching, and a presenter-led workshop on exercise selection assists in providing participants with an understanding and ability to teach these exercises to patients and clients after the course.

Case studies are reviewed and participants have the opportunity to design and discuss their own treatment plans. A guided workshop on imagery for the neck and shoulders aims to further expand the communication and cueing skills of participants.
