Types of Pilates
Pilates is now practiced worldwide by people of all ages and abilities. The two main disciplines are mat-based Pilates (using minimal equipment) and reformer Pilates (using a larger piece of resistance equipment). Here at Delta we offer physio-led clinical mat-based pilates, which we find most appropriate for our patients and clients.
Proponents of Pilates report it is useful in improving posture, muscle tone, balance, and joint mobility. It may also help to reduce stress and tension. It can complement existing fitness programmes to help reduce risk of injury. At Delta, we recommend participating in Pilates when recovering from, or preventing, episodes of back pain. As we provide clinical pilates, our specialist instructor is qualified to advise on specific exercises for your injury, injury prevention, and general wellbeing.
We offer small group Pilates with a maximum of 6 participants. We also provide 1-2-1 or 2-2-1 sessions for those looking for an even more tailored approach. Our specialist instructor is also qualified in pre & post-natal Pilates, helping to support you through your pregnancy and beyond. At Delta Physiotherapy, we are strong proponents of Pilates in ensuring your wellbeing, and we are pleased to be able to offer packages for block bookings.
You do not need to be an existing patient or client at Delta to book onto our Pilates courses. Our small group, mat-based Pilates courses are blocked booked in line with Bury school term times, with a maximum of five attendees plus a teacher per class. Each class is £10 per person, the full term must be paid in full at the start of the course. If you are unable to attend a class then you are more than welcome to give your place to a friend.
The small groups classes maximise personal tuition to guide each client with a high level of support whilst maintaining the fun of group work and you can attend as many courses as you wish.
