A week away with Absolute Sanctuary’s expert Yoga & Pilates instructors Jana & Kevin has been designed to bring you deeper into a Yoga & Pilates practice for both beginners and regular practitioners alike. Through daily themed sessions Jana will guide you in working your physical and emotional body from the hips to opening the heart, to strengthening your arms and restoring balance to your body, whilst Kevin will take you on a journey of discovery of the versatility of Pilates, working your body in all planes of motions through the use of the reformer machine, props and accessories. The retreat culminates with the integration of both practices where you will experience the complimentary balance between the strength and flexibility of Pilates and movement of flow of Yoga.
