Pilates Holidays 2022

Pilates holidays

Reformer Retreats have organised the ultimate Pilates escape that you do not want to miss. Our next winter event is in January 2022. January is known for the ‘Christmas Comedown’ that comes after December's festive fun, presents and parties and plenty of overindulgence.

What better way to kick off your new year with a Pilates retreat to make you feel recharged, refreshed and indulged- this time in a healthy way. 


January Reformer Retreat:

What are the benefits of Pilates Holidays?

 

There are a number of benefits of attending one of our Pilates holidays- both for your physical and mental health. Here are some of the benefits of getting involved with Pilates:

It helps to reduce stress

Any form of exercise can help to reduce stress, however, Pilates is particularly good at reducing stress because of its focus on control of breath and the mind and body connection. 

As you improve your mindfulness with Pilates, you are better able to regulate your nervous system. This gives you better control of your fight or flight response- thus overtime reducing stress.

It can relieve menopausal symptoms

Research shows that Pilates can relieve some symptoms of the menopause. This is said to be due to the fact that Pilates is proven to reduce stress on joints, enhances mood and improves sleep. All of this coincides with the relief of menopause symptoms. To find out more about the link between Pilates and the menopause we talk more about it here

It improves your range of motion

Although Pilates is low impact, it is highly effective when it comes to improving your range of motion and flexibility. The emphasis on your power house (strong core) can help to reduce back and hip pain. It also focuses on correcting posture and proper alignment of the body's muscles and joints. By exercising these areas regularly during Pilates your range of motion should improve. 

Other benefits: 

  • Breath control
  • Better sleep
  • Muscle and joint pain reduction and rehabilitation
  • Better mobility and balance
  • Improved mood
  • Increased strength
  • Reduced menstrual pain
  • Increased energy levels and motivation
