Escape, exercise, reset and recharge
Achieving a work/life balance, even with support, can get frantic, overwhelming and exhausting.
This has been a constant theme with my clients, we created our retreats as an opportunity for people to escape, exercise, reset and recharge.
Our European retreats are located in The Natura in Cyprus and Casperia in Italy. Both have an environment that is as restorative and beautiful as it is energising.
From January 2022 we will be expanding our escapes to include getaway weekends at The Retreat New Forest, Christchurch – an enchanting and magical part of the world surrounded by ancient forests.
These retreats are aimed at people and teachers who are already passionate about the benefits of Pilates and want to explore the work in greater depth.
All our teachers are highly experienced and qualified, with years of training in the Pilates method. Our schedules are kept deliberately unrestricted.
What our clients say

“A week of sunshine, relaxation, healthy food and excellent Pilates tuition.”
“Absolutely the best fun I’ve had in a long time. My abs have benefited from the laughter as well as the Pilates!”
