Who is the Retreat for?

It's for all adults, but it definitely seems like men are a forgotten group when it comes to Pilates retreats.

All Pilates levels are welcome whether that's the new starter or the experienced Pilates teacher. We can support and challenge all levels as the numbers will be kept small.


What is the Retreat Venue like?

All the indoor sessions will take place in The Barn, which is a warm and

charming, Grade II listed stone barn. The atmosphere within The Barn

is something unique and special.

The luxurious yet homely accommodation is found in beautiful stone

cottages the lie adjacent to The Barn.

The food will be delicious and nutritious, plant based and sourced

locally where possible.

Fig Leaf Plant Based Life will be preparing all the meals:


The Barn is set in amazing grounds and woodland and by the river.

You'll be able roam freely and take in the peace and beauty

of the area whilst leaving your stresses behind.

What makes this retreat different?

It genuinely will be designed for you.

We will offer a pre retreat consultation and movement assessment either in person or virtually, so we can be prepared so as to design the retreat for you.

We will also offer a free online class for the first month after the retreat to help you carry on the good work.

The focus will truly be on you and your movement with a view of making real change over the 3 days. 

It will not just be time away, it will be an opportunity to make a difference.
