Matwork

THE PILATES STANDARD MATWORK TRAINING PROGRAM consists of 100 hours and contains 4 modules.

1. INTRO MAT (14 hours)
Intro Mat is the basics for all of our Training programs. Each program is built on the content of this course. In this course/module you will learn 21 Mat exercises on INTRO Level and become familiar with THE PILATES STANDARD teaching components (philosophy, teaching method, class structure).

2. IDEAL MAT (14 hours)
This course will improve your ability to teach people of any age or fitness level. You will learn another 8 exercises and how to add them into the INTRO mat (21 exercises) sequence as well as how to progress them to the IDEAL Level.

3. BASIC ANATOMY AND ORTHOPEDIC FUNDAMENTALS (14 hours)
Knowing how to teach clients with different needs, strengths and weaknesses as much as with chronic conditions, and/or illnesses is elementary for Pilates professionals. In this course some symptoms will be explained and the appropriate modification of the exercises will be practiced, for issues like: 
Common spinal issues like herniated disc, disc protrusion, Scolioses, elderly and youth population, pregnancy etc. Additionally, this course covers how to modify a Mat class for participants with health issues. 

4. CHALLENGE MAT (14 hours)
The focus of this course is the basics of the bio-mechanical principles, the complex Powerhouse Actions 1-5, and the last 12 Mat exercises and how to incorporate them into the already learned Mat sequence and the progression into the CHALLENGE Level of the exercises. Additionally, you will learn sophisticated variations and explore exercises from different angles and perspectives. CHALLENGE Mat focuses on teaching components, especially in the areas of cueing and flow, essential for cultivating the teaching skills in apparatus education as well.
