“Beautiful setting. Good food. Chilled out atmosphere. The Pilates classes were excellent! It was great
to learn more about Pilates and I loved how they progressed each day so I could feel myself getting stronger. It was lovely to be able to do Pilates outside when the sun wasn’t too strong. I really enjoyed trying the different meditation techniques and seeing what worked for each person. I loved this retreat with Sarah and Dalia! It was very relaxing, with a lovely bunch of people and a chilled out vibe.”

“The meditation sessions were so well led that I forgot to be scared of stepping into the unknown and I found an inner peace I have not known before. The Pilates sessions were beautifully structured and took into account the various aches, pains and limitations of the group and there was humour along the way. Our meals were delicious and it was obvious that a lot of love and care had gone into preparing them for us. I have come away from this retreat with a new perspective. I feel energised and more able to deal with whatever comes next. I would give it zen out of zen 🙂 I will be back!”   Sarah, June 2016



Pilates & Mindfulness Retreat – Kent, UK
18-21st June, 2015

Witherdens Composite

“The retreat with Sarah was very well organised and took place at Witherden’s Hall, which is a comfortable, peaceful location. The food was healthy and well-prepared, and in addition they kindly catered to my dietary needs upon request. The Pilates classes with Sarah were excellent and she was very welcoming and kind to everyone. It was a lovely experience and I hope to participate again.”   Ivonne, June 2015

“Thanks again for hosting this fantastic retreat! I thought the classes were of a really high standard and the atmosphere was lovely. I was already inspired but the retreat has really encouraged me to continue with focus. It feels really exciting to have discovered Pilates!”    Lucy, June 2015

“The retreat was nourishing, relaxing and inspiring in every way. Sarah’s classes were wonderful and she responded so well to the needs and energy of the group. I normally practice Pilates once a week, so for me it was a pleasant and valuable change to practice it twice daily for a few days, and it was great to try different guided meditations, too. The location was perfect, with delicious, healthy food and the option of pampering treatments (including a deeply relaxing reflexology massage). Thank you Sarah for hosting a wonderful weekend!”     Catherine, June 2015

“The October 2014 Cyprus I love Pilates retreat was amazing! From my very first contact with Sarah and Dalia they were super lovely, kind and helpful and that carried on throughout the whole trip and beyond. They looked after us from start to finish, organising everything so that we were able to just relax and enjoy. The resort was in a great location right on the sea, and we practised Pilates whilst listening to the waves. As well as relaxing at the resort, we got to explore Cyprus a little – we all went out for an amazing dinner one night in the beautiful village of Bella Pais and also explored Kyrenia during the day. We had a great group and a lot of fun. And all of this and I’d never even done pilates before!”    Kat, Oct 2014

“This retreat was ideal for a complete beginner like me, while at the same time, all of the exercises were well modified for the more advanced members of the group. All exercises were clearly explained by both teachers who are clearly passionate about Pilates. The meditation exercises were an enlightening pleasant addition and complimented the class well. Pilates and meditation is something I intend to explore further.”   Alex, Oct 2014

“The room had the best view over the bay: I loved the fact that in the evening classes we could watch the sun set behind the mountains and our meditation was accompanied by the sound of the waves… This vacation was a luxurious workout for the mind and the body. I came away surprised and pleased at how strong and capable my body is.”   Catherine, Sept 2013

“This was one of the most relaxing and health-giving holidays I have experienced. Dalia and Sarah were extremely thoughtful in their planning and made sure that we felt taken care of, from the welcome pack in our rooms, to their attentiveness during classes, to providing information about the area. I came home feeling stronger and calmer and happier. What better, for a holiday?”    Brenda, Sept 2013
