Matwork Certification Exam
The third and final level in the matwork Pilates training series which focuses on the intermediate and advanced movements in the APPI repertoire.
This two day course builds upon the movements, understanding, cueing and exercise selection from Matwork Level One. The conversion from beginner to more advanced movements will facilitate the unique shift from just stability to strength and conditioning. This progression from rehabilitation to full health and fitness is a crucial process to achieve your clients' goals of a full recovery.
Beyond just rehabilitation, the APPI Pilates programme is a career changing process. This final course in the series allows you to be competent in working not just with injured clients, but to begin the transition to fitness classes, preventative programmes, and a new career avenue as a fully trained Pilates Instructor (on completion of the Matwork exam).
Effective cueing skills including verbal, visual and tactile teaching elements, pain, pathology and function.
Thirty movements for training lumbo-pelvic, scapulo-thoracic, cervical stabilization and spinal mobilisation.

Practice teaching and observation
Review case studies, design and discuss treatment plans.
