Pre-requisite – Pilates Level 1 Equipment course

This course covers Intermediate level exercise repertoire on the Reformer, Trap table (Cadillac) and Wunda chair. Some of this is traditional Pilates’ repertoire and many exercises are designed from our understanding of rehabilitation and sports physiotherapy. We move from neutral spinal positions to more range of motion. We add more instability in some exercises, more load, and complexity of movement in others.

The course also covers - The Pilates pre-assessment process – this is a proforma protocol that we use to thoroughly screen a client to ascertain weakness issues, poor movement patterns, tight muscles and postural issues that need to be addressed in the design of a Clinical Pilates programme.

You will be required to design a client specific programme. This will be scoped from the assessment done on another class participant and repertoire gained from level one work then the level 2 repertoire.

Your skills in Pilates programme prescription based on the findings of the assessment will be examined.


  • completion of musculoskeletal assessment protocol on fellow course participants
  • demonstration of an understanding of elements of the assessment
  • completion of workbook during the course
  • designing a “client specific” programme for a course participant that you have assessed based on level 1 and 2 repertoire.

Taking that fellow course participant through the programme that you have designed demonstrating your ability to understand the purpose of the exercise, being able to demonstrate it, facilitate correct movement patterns in the “client”, spot incorrect movement patterns and correct these.
