Please select your options to proceed.
A Pilates retreat to empower and inspire you. Anula's caring approach and unique teaching style will encourage, uplift and empower you.
In this retreat, each class will address the themes of self-acceptance and movement as preventative medicine. As we practice traditional Pilates we will also at times address the negative narrative that sometimes bubbles up during a workout. "I am not strong enough, flexible enough, thin enough" etc and delve into shifting the focus of our language to more positive self-talk. Classes will be challenging with a focus on what is possible vs what sometimes feels impossible. We will try to push the limits of what we think our abilities are and see if any surprises appear along the way. Plan to show up ready to delve deep into the Method of Pilates while making mindful choices on how to remain present, connected and less judgmental.
If you are a beginner this is an unmissable opportunity to really light your Pilates fire! For those who are already passionate about it, this week will be your chance to take your practice to the next level with a Master teacher who will challenge and inspire you.
Included in this special week is a one hour full body massage - the perfect way to wind down and relax into your holiday. You can book additional treatments, including massages, beauty treatments and complementary therapies, to make sure you go home beautifully rested and pampered.

I AM A SOLO TRAVELLER, IS THIS OK?

At the retreat, brunches and five evening meals are included and the group dines and socialises together. On the remaining evenings’ guests often choose to enjoy meals together at one of the excellent restaurants a short walk away. You also have the option to stay in and self-cater.
