The APPI Pilates method consists of a series of exercises to apply in the clinical setting and is the essential training tool for all health professionals. With over 60 educators, training is delivered in 15 countries across the globe. Our method is research based and as physiotherapists we recognised the demand for a more specific training program that targets higher theoretical and practical experience. The APPI Pilates course curriculum has developed over the years to become one of the most comprehensive curriculums for Pilates training of any organisation in the world.
Designed by fully qualified Australian physiotherapists in 1999, the APPI Pilates course provides therapists with a user-friendly program for retraining correct activation of the multifidus, TrA and pelvic floor muscles. Its progressive repertoire of mat and equipment based exercises is designed for physiotherapists and equivalent degree therapists to teach to the clinical population.
Unite Health Management offers three streams of education delivered by APPI including Matwork Certification, Equipment Certification and CPD courses. View the course outlines here.
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.
