I’ve often thought about hosting a Pilates retreat, so when Jo asked me to do one together this summer, I thought it was a fantastic idea…I couldn’t resist! This is a great opportunity to bring together a group of Pilates enthusiasts of different ages and abilities from different locations for some time to relax and unwind with healthy eating and soothing Pilates exercises that will relax the body and mind. spirit.
What makes a Pilates retreat so special and unique?
A retreat can take you on a personal journey to gain a deeper understanding and insight into Pilates and your own mind and body. It gives you the chance to enjoy the enormous benefits of regular daily practice of Pilates while having an appreciation for nature and its environment. This, combined with healthy eating, relaxation, massage, meditation, mindfulness and like-minded companionship, can only leave you feeling healthy, energized, relaxed and refreshed!
What are the benefits?
Escape the stress of everyday life – Many people choose a retreat to escape the stresses of everyday life. Pilates is a great way to practice mindfulness. It helps you disconnect from the distractions of modern life and helps you become motivated and inspired to achieve your goals and embark on a personal journey…whatever that may be.
A change of environment – It gives you a change of environment and that famous saying “a change is as good as a rest” couldn’t be truer when it comes to retreats! It can help change your perspective and, in a beautiful setting like the mountains of Mallorca, it gives you the chance to connect with both yourself and nature.
Balanced diet – Good food is always part of a retirement, and it can really help kick-start a new, healthier lifestyle and eating plan that will leave you feeling more positive and energized. That might not stop us from enjoying a strange glass of local wine!!
Break old unhealthy habits – A retreat will help you form new, more positive habits as you learn and enjoy new skills. In such a tranquil setting with a planned schedule, you won’t be able to follow your normal routine so well to break that and do something different and new. It’s also a good way to break unhealthy habits such as overeating or smoking if that’s your goal for example. You are more likely to become highly motivated to pursue a healthy and positive routine at home.
Digital detox – This is your chance to digitally detox! In such a lovely setting, we are more inspired to enjoy nature as it takes you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and endless emails and buzzing phones!
Goal setting and personal challenge – Having the opportunity to meet like-minded people with similar goals to yourself can help keep you motivated to achieve your own. It can also take you out of your comfort zone by branching out to meet new people.
Relax your mind – The environment will help you relax the mind, and that is when you can become more clear, positive and inspired… your mind will be cleared of all negative energy.
Improve sleep – Retreats allow you to relax in order to improve your sleep. It is one of the most important aspects of health and we need plenty of rest and sleep to improve our cognitive abilities, our memory and to develop our creativity.
Achieve health goals – It will give you time to focus on your health goals under the guidance of health and fitness professionals, so you have the inspiration to achieve them.
Improve mental health – Retreats can improve your mental health by allowing an emotional and psychological separation from the stresses and strains of everyday life. A chance to get away from it all in a supportive and nurturing environment. It can give you a sense of calm and provide a new perspective.
Jo and I are happy to offer you an experience that is not “just a vacation”, but also an important “me time”, a chance to reflect and have time for yourself. We would love for you to join us on our retreat in Mallorca! If you want to know more, please contact us.
