Matwork Teacher Training Course – Starting April 2023
Matwork is the foundation of the Pilates Method. The Matwork was the original. The apparatus; Reformer, Cadillac, Wunda Chair, etc., were all invented to facilitate the Matwork. Our Matwork Teacher Training Course lays that foundation and connects the Matwork to the larger Pilates Method.
What will I learn?
Our Matwork Teacher Training Course includes a full repertoire of Mat exercises, the original 34 exercises from Return to Life as well as dozens of Mat exercises developed later in Joseph Pilates’s career.
As the Matwork is a part of the larger Pilates Method as a whole, we teach the Matwork as it relates to the other pieces of apparatus.
The Matwork is also improved by the use of smaller props. We’ll show you how to use these props in ways that facilitate the Matwork in the same ways as the larger apparatuses.
