This course will be run face to face out of our Bulimba practice.

The Level 2 Matwork Course is a fusion of advanced Matwork stretches and  

Exercises using small apparatus. This gives the Pilates professional a much bigger repertoire of exercises. It includes safe closed chain exercises at one end of the spectrum and moves into intermediate and very advanced exercises suitable for athletes and long term Pilates devotees. 

We have extrapolated many of the large equipment exercises (Reformer, Trap table, Wunda chair) to exercises that can be performed on small apparatus:- Swiss balls, Foam rollers , Pilates rings, Therabands and Theratubes. The small equipment can add more support to a client and make an exercise safer for a beginner, it can add more load or it can add more instability and therefore stimulate an activation response from the deep trunk stabilizers.

Adding small apparatus to a client’s homework is a great way to improve compliance as most people like to work with some equipment and having made the financial outlay to buy a ball, roller or band they are more inclined to get stuck into their home programme.

A good background in Level 1 Matwork and ability to perform such is a prerequisite to this course. The content is quite intensive so we assume you are fit and injury free, well versed in basic Pilates exercises, Pilates principles, and applied anatomy. (Matwork 1 in other Pilates training methods is accepted as pre-entry).

Practical components and Assessment is your ability to perform the exercises  and understand the exercises and to work in small groups to design Pilates classes for specific target groups and specific equipment is specified.
