retreats 01


Would you like to upgrade your Pilates practice, get stronger, leaner, more flexible and release built-up tension that has accumulated over time? Located amongst the Tuscan hilltops in Italy, I’ll be hosting a four-day Pilates retreat where we will exercise Pilates intensively. Have time for nature walks, relax and enjoy fresh Mediterranean food. In seven sessions,  we will walk you through the classic Pilates movements that will allow you to gain control over your body so you can feel energised, stronger and full of life. This is the foundation for your continued Pilates routine. If you already are a Pilates enthusiast, going back to the essentials of this sophisticated method is always a good idea. Be prepared to challenge yourself and discover how wonderful you are made.

This is also the season for the traditional olive harvest in Tuscany. The healthy olive oil is one of the corner stones in Tuscan culture. We will visit an olive farm and taste the fresh Tuscan olive oil straight from the press. It will be an unforgettable experience. It’s time to start feeling gorgeous!

Date: October 31st at 3 pm - November 3rd at noon, 2019

Accomodation: We will be staying at “Il Verreno”, a beautiful Tuscan retreat with the calm atmosphere of a country house but with hotel style service. The estate is located above the town of Ambra in the southern Chianti area.

Mediterranean Cuisine: The gourmet restaurant Cucina Donnaluisa is run by Marialuisa Lovari, who led the team that won the prestigious Campionati della Cucina Italiana 2017 and is now part of the National Italian team.
