Escape the Island

A pilates retreat

A journey focused on mobility and core activation

Have you ever thought about attending a retreat?

Often times, we need to disconnect from our routine and to dedicate some quality time to ourselves. We need to fill up our cup, to go back stronger, more relaxed and with more clarity. 

Those who embark on a retreat decide to disconnect to detox from everyday’s stress, and from what makes them heavier and less grounded. To let go of what no longer serve them and to make space for new, fresh opportunities.

Letting go is easy to say but not to do. However, when you are surrounded by like minded spirits, and in a natural environment that is vibrant, energetic and summery, then letting go becomes more easy.

Once you have mastered the art of letting go, you can deep dive into your Pilates practice and discover the benefits that this amazing practice give not only from a physical stand point, but also on an emotional level.

Our retreat offers a perfect environment for a stress free state of mind.

During the retreat you will have the chance to explore the various Pilates techniques, that will bring you back in harmony between body and mind. Paola will guide you in this journey, offering daily Pilates classes focused on raising your energies and re-establish the mind-body connection. Her ability to give clean and simple cues, will help you gain more skills even if you are not highly experiences in Pilates.

The Location

Where we will staying at

Casa di Sale

Sardinia, Italy

Cosy like a cocoon, silent like a shelter, green like a wood, sunny like Sardinia, clean like the wind. Yoga Resort Casadisale is a reality in transformation. Originally it was a rural house, furnished with ethnic pieces and antiques furnitures, then it was transformed in a charming b&b with panoramic terrace to practice yoga (four double rooms, each with private bathroom and dehor). From this year guests can also sleep in glamorous tents with a common bathroom (glamping).
Yoga Resort Casadisale is a location suitable for everyone, also for people who don’t practice yoga, beginners, travellers who are looking to share the same philosophy of life. Silence, respect for nature, slow days starting with an organic breakfast, with homemade cakes and jams, or a brunch (salads, quinoa and fresh fruit). And extraordinary connections. At Yoga Resort Casadisale we take care of everyone… even the cats who happily run among the mirto and rosemary plants.
