WRITING RETREAT WITH PILATES

Centre, stretch and engage yourself in the present

Monday July 6th - Saturday July 11th 2020

Totleigh Barton

Tap into your creativity from a place of balance and symmetry, physically and mentally. Too often we find ourselves rushing through life, which leaves us off balance and our nervous system buzzing all over the place. This week, give your writing project the time and focus it needs, while daily Pilates classes will help you breathe consciously, move well, and feel grounded and strong. The classes will include mindfulness and movements specifically chosen to unwind the body from sitting for long periods, unravelling blockages in body and mind. Suitable for all levels, this retreat offers two group Pilates classes per day, plus an individual session tailored to your body and needs.

Single room price: £710
