The Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI) was founded in 1999 and since then has come to be the leading force in the delivery of safe, effective and evidence-based Pilates. It differs from other Pilates institutes by being founded and directed by fully qualified Physiotherapists.
Instructors go through a gruelling practical and theoretical examination that ensures the standards are maintained right throughout the world. A 'Fully Certified' instructor has completed the APPI certification series and passed all examinations. The APPI fully endorses all Fully Certified Instructors.
They are pushed to be creative, energetic and focussed and are asked to continuously update their skills, knowledge of the latest research and their clinical reasoning.
