Recommended Yoga and Pilates combination Retreats

Last Updated on August 2, 2020 by Editor

Yoga and pilates are both sophisticated systems of integrative exercise with a lot in common. The six pilates principles: centering, concentration, control, precision, breath and flow, could easily be used to describe the principles of many kinds of yoga as well. Both disciplines are also integrative and associated with stress reduction and increased wellbeing.

Pilates and yoga are also quite different from each other, and it is in the differences that we find many of the complimentary aspects of the two that make them such a great team. Explore the benefits of practicing both together on of these recommended yoga and pilates combination retreats.

Yoga and Pilates Retreat by the Sea, Spain

Dates: 24 – 29 September (2020), 13 – 18 May, 10 – 15 June (2021)

Join us for a 5 night Yoga and Pilates retreat by the sea and immerse yourself in gorgeous sunshine, big open blue skies, fresh sea air, beach time and feast on delicious healthy food.

Plus, super experienced yoga and pilates teachers will help you open, lengthen, quieten and strengthen your body with two classes a day with time in between to explore this stunningly beautiful area with the optional biking, hiking, horse trekking or simply relax by the pool with a great book and soak up the sun’s rays.

Based at a 300 year old olive farm – now a 4* country house hotel – set in acres of orange & olive groves near the sea. This peaceful setting is the perfect base to get away from your normal routine and get a fresh perspective on life.

Whether you’re a keen beginner or have a regular yoga or Pilates practice, this retreat will meet you where you are with small groups of 12 and classes for beginners and intermediates/advanced plus workshops to help progress and deepen your practice.

There’ll be plenty of opportunity to get outside and be in nature too with a guided hike, bike ride, horse trek, visits to the beach, take part in a Spanish cookery workshop, rest by the pool or enjoy pampering therapies.

And don’t worry, these retreats are super relaxed. So if there is a morning where you want to sleep in, please do. If there’s an afternoon you would stay longer by the pool and skip class, that’s ok! Whatever you feel you need, please do.
