Pilates retreats

You can recharge your energy and strengthen your core at a Pilates retreat. While some of the retreats we’ve reviewed and recommend offer specific Pilates programmes, others include it as part of a broader offer, which might see you take in yoga, meditation and mindfulness as well. You’re spoilt for choice – our Pilates retreats are set in breathtaking surroundings all over the world, including a stunning valley near Marbella in Spain, a gorgeous olive grove on the Peloponnese in Greece, a peaceful corner near Phuket in Thailand and a beautiful valley, surrounded by a pine and eucalyptus forest in Portugal. At some retreats you can immerse yourself in the practice and enjoy the high standard of teaching, often using props to build core strength. A Pilates machine is sometimes used for a precise workout to tone the entire body and even though classes are intended for more advanced practitioners, instructions are usually clear enough for beginners to follow. Others have optional Pilates classes, that you can dip in and out of. On sunny Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands in Spain you can mix a beach holiday with Pilates. If you’re new to Pilates or a single traveller, why not book a weekend retreat for a taster, or a bespoke retreat for one-to-one tuition?
