Joseph Pilates was an early 20th century German-born fitness enthusiast who developed an comprehensive integrated system of physical exercise. Initially termed 'contrology', it consisted of mat based exercises focusing on breathing, alignment of the spine and strengthening core muscles.

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 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.

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 £9 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.
