Pilates 3 Day Retreat

ENQUIRE NOW FOR SPRING 2023

The FIT 66 Pilates retreat is based in the heart of The Pyrénées-Orientales, Southern France.  Pilates, stretch & relaxation as well as  energy pilates are on offer alongside delicious vegetarian food, wine tasting and the chance to utterly relax. 

The retreat weekend is neither fasting or chanting  and more about creating a restorative weekend break which mixes movement, mindfulness and a little wine if you wish! We believe it’s this approach which helps to rebalance the body and mind and make you feel ready to step back into your life, feeling more inspired, relaxed and connected.

Why choose a pilates wellness retreat?

Pilates gently and effectively restores the movement potential we were born with, and the beauty of it is that it is suitable for anyone – whatever age, fitness level, whatever movement you are doing (or not doing) now, and wherever you want to get to, Pilates will help.

Pilates is all about slow, controlled movements—but its fitness and health rewards are speedy. you’ll walk away with feel-better benefits on day one.

 

Oftentimes, people think that their body feels compressed, tense, and tight beforehand but leave a pilates session feeling more loose and more aware of their body.

Wendy of FIT 66

Hi, I am Wendy.  I created my fitness business FIT 66 here in south of France after qualifying as a personal trainer and pilates instructor.  I teach pilates all year round to English speaking and French speaking residents in the P-O department.

The FIT 66 motto is “The greatest wealth is health,”  and I firmly believe that if we take care of our nutrition, fitness and mental wellbeing,  we can lead a longer and healthier life.

My aim for this retreat is that you take the time just for you, moving you body through the medium of pilates.  We will be focusing on you feeling calmer, free of stress and  happy to be alive and well.
