About the retreat
Join us a for a great experience in the beautiful tropics of Far North Queensland in Mission Beach. The retreat is set amongst 50 acres of rustic and natural rainforest.
This retreat operates upon a daily schedule including all classes and meals. While it is not essential to attend every session, we do recommend that you try so you gain the maximum benefit and enjoy continuity of the activities. Kym and Philippa - your hosts- will be working together in the sessions to teach, guide and assist you within the group.
There will be two Pilates and stretching sessions per day and a minimum of one mindfulness/meditation session per day.
You do not need prior experience, however you do require a good level of general fitness due to the nature of the retreat location set into a steep slope. We will ask you about your needs and experience upon booking in to ensure you feel comfortable with what you can expect.
There is plenty of free time for yourself where you can relax, read, swim in the pool, swim at the beach nearby (10 minute walk), chat to other participants, have a massage onsite, etc..
The atmosphere is casual and relaxed!
The retreat commences at 6pm on Saturday 4th June for our first session together followed by dinner. Check in is available from 2pm. The retreat concludes on Friday 10th June at 10am.

Is this retreat for me?
This retreat is set in a beautiful rainforest upon a hill.
The theme of this retreat is a relaxing one with the aim to help your body and mind gain strength and increase wellbeing.
This is not a type of bootcamp! We offer gentle precise (and challenging..) Pilates teaching and we will assist you and guide you each day as one within the group. The Pilates sessions are taken on the floor on mats with the added use of small props like therabands etc..
A good level of fitness is required. If you are injured or are experiencing any limitation you will find the retreat significantly challenging - this may affect your ability to participate.
The retreat is set into a hill on a steep 50m slope. You will regularly be walking up and down this to access everything.
The mindfulness/meditation sessions are simple and practical techniques, they are non-religious. They can be taken sitting on a chair or the floor to suit.
Things to consider-
Do I feel ok to regularly walk up and down a steep hill to reach my room, the studio, the dining room or the beach and pool?
Do I feel comfortable in a natural bush setting where insects and wildlife are present?
Am I comfortable doing Pilates on the floor on a mat?
Do I want to have a great retreat in the beautiful tropics with two caring teachers and other like-minded people?..!
