Pilates & Relaxation

In today’s modern world we are often under constant pressure juggling the demands of our busy lives rarely having time to stop and unwind, to relax or simply think calmly.   Retreats can be a really important tool to redress this frantic pace and Suzanne is an expert in creating a space and a mix of classes and free time to really bring you home – to a sense of stillness and calm within your mind and body – to press the reset button and step off the wheel.


Sadly our retreat programme is on hold due to the Pandemic.  We hope to offer more once we feel it is safe to do so.  

Relaxation, Rejuvenation and Pilates retreat

Dates to be announced Thursday 26th March 2020


This retreat will be hosted by Suzanne and Valentina and held in the newly refurbished Brooklands Barn in Arundel. This venue is the perfect place to let nature work its magic on you along with a carefully tailored programme of classes and free time.

There will be Qi Gung sessions each morning – a meditative form of movement designed to gently free your body of any restrictions and tension as well as morning and afternoon pilates sessions.  Pilates classes will be led by Valentina and tailored to suit your needs with lots of individual attention so you really get to learn what’s right for your body and deepen your understanding of this movement form.

Suzanne will also share her love of meditation and relaxation techniques which help to bring your mind, body and spirit into stillness and deepen your sense of calm and wellbeing. In addition to classes there will be time to sit by the log fires, perhaps read a book, have an afternoon nap, take a walk, make new friends, eat amazing vegetarian food, treat yourself to a massage or relax in the sauna and indoor pool.

Price: £365 per person
