Which UK Pilates Retreat Is Best?

Which UK Pilates Retreat Is Best

UK Pilates Retreat

If you are in need of some well deserved relaxation then a Pilates retreat could be the perfect solution. You do not necessarily have to jet off somewhere far far away to experience the amazing benefits associated with a holiday. There are a number of luxurious Pilates retreats across the UK to help you loosen up and de-stress. Today we are going to compare the UKs leading Pilates Retreats to help you decide where your next weekend escape from reality could be.

Sunridge Pilates Retreat

Sunridge Pilates Retreat

In third place we have the idyllic Sunridge Pilates Retreat located in Devon. This is perfect if you are looking for a staycation with friends or loved ones with a bit of Pilates integrated into your holiday. The accommodation is simply stunning with the option to choose from a luxury treehouse, barn and even a glamping pod. Unfortunately Sunridge is not your typical retreat where you can meet new, like minded individuals and have an itinerary already in place. Instead, you have the option to book private Pilates classes in the host’s studio nearby or outside your accommodation if the weather allows. This is a great option if you are looking for a relaxing holiday with little activity. If you are looking for a retreat where you can make new friends, focus on wellness and develop your Pilates skills then it might not be right for you.

Pros:

  • Private Pilates sessions
  • Luxury accommodation
  • Scenic location

Cons:

  • Expensive
  • Heavily reliant on the weather
  • Not particularly focused on Pilates
  • No additional wellness activities

Soul Weekender

Soul Weekender

Coming in at second place on our list of the best UK Pilates retreats is Soul Weekender. This weekend has been organised by Soul Pilates who have created a unique concept based in rural devon. Their itinerary for the weekend has been planned to help rebalance the mind, body and spirit to help you feel more inspired and connected when you return to day to day life. Included in the weekender is Pilates, meditation and wine tasting. The downside of this retreat is that it is not too focused on the Pilates, although it offers a range of exciting activities. If a weekend of indulgence with friends, Soul Weekender is ideal. However if what you’re after is a retreat focusing on Pilates, this might not be the best option for you.

Pros:

  • Luxury accommodation
  • Scenic location
  • Hot Tub available

Cons:

  • May have to share accommodation with strangers if not going as a group
  • No use of Pilates equipment such as the Reformer
  • Expensive
  • Heavily reliant on the weather

Reformer Retreats

Reformer Retreats
