Poros Pilates and Yoga Retreat
When?Start time: Saturday 17:00 (01 September)
End time: Saturday 20:00 (08 September)
As many of you know, in summer I go for a vacation on the beautiful Island Poros, Greece. As much as I love my time on holiday, I always miss my clients and teaching. So I want to invite you to join me on a journey to mindfulness and relaxation, practicing our Pilates and Yoga in this wonderful destination.
The accommodation: Apartments have a small kitchenette, air conditioning, balcony/outdoor space and are situated only a few meters from the beach. Just downstairs is our outdoor exercise area and a restaurant with tantalizing traditional home cooked Greek food and a friendly atmosphere. There are spectacular and mesmerizing views of the sea, sunsets, and stunning Poros light reflections on the sea at night. The sweet sea salt smell with hints of jasmine, Greek food, and the sound of gentle Greek music is perfect for our retreat.
Yoga and Pilates: The lessons will be tailored for mixed abilities, inclusive and welcoming for beginners with challenging twists for those more advanced.
Free time: Between classes there are many things to do; why not be a tourist and visit Poros town or one of the nearby Islands. Visit Sirene Blue, a spectacular hotel with divine food and a stunning setting. Take a walk and explore this magical island. If your feeling daring, there are water sports such as skiing, wakeboarding or a banana ride close to your accommodation. Swim in the sea or sunbathe and top up that tan!

"Back to reality after a wonderful week in Poros on a yoga and pilates retreat. I had the most amazing time. It was an active but relaxing holiday. I took a risk by going on holiday by myself but I never once felt lonely thanks to all the lovely people I met and made friends with.
Thank you Pauline for organising such a brilliant retreat. It was such a joy to be taking your classes again! I loved them! Thank you Sofia for everything! You took good care of us and I felt at home." Doriane
`'Just wanted to thank you for an absolutely lovely holiday, the yoga and Pilates classes were great! I felt really chilled and made some friends as well. I really couldn't say what the best part of the holiday was as the whole experience was great.
Sofia was wonderful she made us all feel very welcome, she is such a lovely lady. I would love to go back to the island sometime." Wendy
"Thomas Carlyle said "He who has health, has hope; and he who has hope, has everything." Thank you Pauline for "everything", I came with Hazel on your retreat with no plan to join in the contortional activities, but having done so under your expert guidance, you have started me down a road of a healthier life and provided hope for even the most rigid and out of shape human." Harris - feeling thankful
"Having never been to Greece we did not know what to expect. We couldn’t have been more delighted. Poros the island is small but perfect and feels safe and friendly. The town/ harbour area is beautiful with some very nice shops, bars and restaurants. The Gellato shop is not to be missed!!
We loved the quietness of the bay where we stayed, looking out from our balcony every morning was such a joy. Petros taverna run by Sophia was ideal and we really didn’t feel the need to venture far from Sophia’s food and hospitality. The food was exceptional. We felt that we were experiencing genuine Greek, home cooked food, and that we were Sophia’s guests rather than her customers. The portions are very generous and fresh. The little super market in the bay was very handy for anything else we needed.
The two evenings out in Poros with the water taxi and cocktails and a delicious meals were really fun evenings out.
We hired E bikes from A local company and they couldn’t have been more helpful or friendly and very trusting!! No deposits needed!! The E bikes allowed us to explore the island with it’s beautiful secluded bays and wooded hills and to pop into Poros town as and when we wanted.
We had a really exciting boat trip around the Island with Bob the local Ski instructor. It was one of the Highlights of my week.
The swimming was glorious and the water was very clear and clam and clean. Keith was very kind and gave me some swimming coaching which I’m applying to my swimming now that I am home.
Overall I am so glad that we came on this retreat, in some ways it was life changing. I have learnt more about Pilates and yoga, I feel fitter and stronger and I have made lots of new friends. We will definitely be coming back for more XX" Hazel
