Pilates Overseas Retreat 

Pilates + Fresh Air + Good Food & Company
 = Perfect boost to your wellbeing 


Choose Pilates first held a Pilates long weekend retreat in France May 2014, after receiving several requests over the years from the students who would love to practice Pilates over a few days in a beautiful surrounding. 

Our first retreat location was in Bordeaux (France)  and we stayed in a large French manor house with full of charm & great facilities. It was a great success so we returned to the same venue in July 2015. 

In 2016, we changed the location to Perugia (Italy) and our new retreat venue was an old converted monastery. Our daily classes took place in the original 10th century church - a unique experience! 

" I joined Katie for one of her Pilates retreats in France and it was one of the most enjoyable and relaxing few days I have ever spent. The morning classes were a wonderful way to start the day and the evening sessions left everyone feeling in balance and ready for a companionable dinner. Having such a great opportunity to explore and develop one's Pilates practice on a twice daily basis was incredibly rewarding and the whole group departed the retreat completely rejuvenated." 
- Sandra 

"I have been on two of Katie's retreats and they were a perfect balance of structure and free time. Plenty of Pilates but lots of time to explore the area or do nothing. Opportunities to do things as a group and to have time on your own. Wonderful food & brilliant company.  Much laughter along the way and I can't think of the retreats without smiling." 
- Carola 

"I attended her retreat in Italy and we had such a fantastic trip. Apart from the amazing location and accommodation, there was a great group of diverse individuals who love Pilates and we enjoyed our free time exploring the area, local food & drink to balance out each day. I came home feeling refreshed and I am now looking forward to the next retreat in Spain. I would highly recommend it."
- Sinead
"I have been attending Katie's mat and studio sessions for over 8 years now and Pilates feels like an important part of my life. This year I joined Katie's Pilates Retreat at an extraordinary eco-retreat near Almeria in Southern Spain. The beautiful site, outdoor pool and fantastic al fresco dining were essential parts of the experience - but most important were the twice-daily Pilates sessions, taught by Katie with her celebrated mix of rigour, precision and good humour. I feel as though Pilates has already made quite a difference to my fitness and appearance, but this opportunity to take an intensive course was great. I came away feeling calmer and more centred - with my clothes fitting better despite my participating very fully in all the fantastic meals! I highly recommend this incredible retreat in whichever wonderful location Katie chooses next."
