Brinkburn is situated in a secluded wooded ravine on the banks of the River Coquet in Northumberland. It offers one of the most exquisite backdrops for you to escape and focus on your Pilates practice and well being. The Augustinian Friars chose this site in the 12th Century to establish a priory as they were taken by the beauty and peace of the surroundings. Whatever your beliefs or non beliefs you can't help but be transported from the hustle and bustle of life to the stillness of this place.  


 A Unique Pilates Experience - Designed For You

What makes this retreat unique is that it will be purposely designed for you. With over 20 years experience within the health and fitness industry, Adrian will assess your movement and Pilates practice and use his skills to direct the experience to your needs.

During these quality 3 days you will have an opportunity to experience mat, reformer and wunda chair classes and gain a greater understanding of the classical pilates method and how the apparatus and mat practice serve each other. There will be an opportunity to develop your breathwork and if its for you experience the stillness of cold water immersion. The grounds, woodlands and riverside setting also offer an opportunity to just be at peace and a guided walk will be included. 






The studio space is set in a refurbished barn which offers an amazing place to teach and be taught. the accommodation is luxurious and yet homely as it is set in some beautiful stone built cottages. We believe that food is essential for a happy and healthy life. On this retreat the food will be very special. Your meals will be freshly prepared by Fig Leaf PLant Based Life who source ingredients locally where possible and provide the most delicious and healthy plant based meals. 


What will make this 'designed for you' retreat so effective will be the online consultation prior to the retreat and the follow up class that will be offered on your return. These are our 'give aways' to you to make sure you get the most from your time away. All within the price!


Although the timetable is full, the time is yours to take as much as you want or need. If you feel the peace and tranquilty of the beautiful surroundings draws you in, then you can opt for the space and time to recharge and reset.
