Feel relaxed and invigorated on this Pilates / Yoga retreat in the Spanish mountains of Girona close by to the National Park of Gavarres and the coast line of Costa Brava.

We combine healthy vegan food with energizing Vinyasa yoga classes and strengthening / toning Pilate’s classes for an overall holistic experience.

Why a Pilates and Yoga retreat?
Both are exercise methods that encourage physical and mental wellbeing, drawing on ancient philosophy they combine breath and movement to promote both physical and mental strength, uniting the mind and body. Both Pilates and Yoga aim to strengthen, improve flexibility and tone whilst calming the mind.

Where will we be staying?
During the retreat we will be staying in a beautiful old Masia (farm house), just over an hour from Barcelona by train and close to the city of Girona.. The Masia boasts great views of the mountains, and is situated walking distance from one of Catalonia’s most beautiful national parks and a short way from the beach.

What will we be eating ?
Our amazing vegan food will be prepared by professional cooks using fresh local ingredients.

A vegan diet is a natural way of eating consciously, using unrefined grains, vegetables and legumes as the base of the diet.

What will you get from a pilates and yoga retreat?
Taking time for yourself to sit in stillness, to take time to breath and experience the mediation of yoga flow will relax the mind and bring health to the body. Pilates will look at the anatomy and work to strengthen and tone weak areas.
Eating a healthy vegan diet will help detox the body. You will be delighted by the increase in energy and vitality!
