Your Retreat

RetreatCoverImage

The concept for my retreat is that it’s actually Your Retreat.

I will bring my Pilates knowledge and experience to you, whether it’s in the intimate surroundings of your own home or in a venue which you’ve hired especially for the occasion away from the stresses of daily life.

Your Retreat could be ‘full on’ Pilates with a progressive 8 session programme providing you with a final choreographed routine to take home and practice. Or you may prefer a less structured exploration of the Pilates principles woven around other activities and experiences which you may want to share during your weekend.

As host,  you will have the complete freedom to create the flow of the weekend so that the social side of Your Retreat is exactly as you want it, dovetailing in with good movement practice.

Whether you’re aiming to provide a weekend of laughter and learning, or mindfulness and relaxation, my flexible approach  means that together we can design an entirely bespoke event. Enabling you and your guests to truly enjoy a special experience, leaving refreshed with fond memories of Your Retreat.

Your Retreat can be enjoyed by complete beginners, or those who have practiced Pilates and want to understand more about the fundamentals of how the body moves and works, building body awareness and movement technique.

You may even want a weekend to focus on:

  • movement to support pregnancy
  • bone health
  • preparation for a particular sporting event such as a golf tournament or a skiing holiday
  • surprise celebration for a friends birthday
  • hen party with a difference!

– it can be for many or no reason – the beauty of it, is that it’s ‘yours‘.

Franny’s sessions are great – she explains the principals and movements very clearly and breaks the exercises down so you can understand them and progress from week to week. She encourages feedback so you’re not afraid to ask! Her nursing background is very apparent both in her knowledge of the body and caring approachable manner.
