This 4-day course Intensive covers Level 1 and Level 2 Matwork with Small Apparatus. We start with a brief history of Pilates, the principles of Pilates, comparison of physiotherapy research into back pain and core control & Pilates. 

We have adapted and down-graded many of the original Pilates exercises to meet the needs of a beginner or rehabilitation client. We have also added many exercises that are inspired by contemporary physiotherapy research. The course will cover client assessment of core and pelvic strength and matching exercise to function. The exercise repertoire in this course covers early rehabilitative exercises to intermediate exercises. 

The second half of this course is a fusion of advanced Matwork – some traditional and some inspired by contemporary research and Pilates exercises using small apparatus.

This will include more advanced repertoire to challenge an advanced clientele.

Using small apparatus 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) to exercises that can be performed on small apparatus:- Swiss balls, Foam rollers , Pilates rings, Therabands and Theratubes tubes. 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.
