The Core Elements of any APPI Pilates Course 

Put your patients’ trust in our hands. Our program can help your clients with:

  • Correcting lumbo-pelvic alignment and activation of the key lumbo-pelvic stabilising muscles
  • Correct ribcage/thoracic positioning
  • Scapulo-thoracic stabilisation
  • Deep neck flexor retraining to stabilise the cervical spine

Our method also includes specific exercises to improve spinal mobility, flexibility of the trunk and lower limbs, body awareness and postural awareness, key factors in aiding and preventing lower back pain (LBP).

Different ways to learn 

Our educators recognise people learn in different ways, so an APPI Pilates instructor training course applies a varied approach to your education:

  • Practical sessions – participants experience, observe and practice teaching
  • Workshops – focusing on the assessment of key spinal stabilisers as well as verbal, visual and auditory cueing
  • Pilates classes – enabling individuals to enjoy the experience themselves
  • Case study workshops – to establish clear clinical decision making
  • Structured lectures
  • An open and relaxed learning environment

The large practical component in each course gives each participant the opportunity to practise and receive feedback from our experienced presenters.
