Unique worldwide Pilates holidays and retreats 

Pilates retreats Uk

Pilates in Brighton’s relaxing  pilates holidays and retreats  are so much more than your average exercise or fitness holiday. With pilates classes suitable for everyone – whatever age, body shape or fitness level – our retreats offer a unique take on the standard wellbeing holiday.

Pilates in the Sun

We have been running sell-out Pilates holidays and retreats since 2013 in select locations across Europe, South America & India and welcome both single travellers and couples alike.

We are passionate about focussing not only on daily physical relaxation and delicious nourishment, but also on fun, adventure & life-changing rejuvenation.

For us, a retreat is not about straw mats, chanting at dawn, tiny yoga shorts or strict diets. Our guests return year after year because of the skilled daily Pilates tuition, the nourishing & delicious food, the caring & rejuvenating environment and our unique twist on the standard wellness retreat. If you are a solo traveller looking for pilates in the sun you’re in the right place!


Solo travellers Welcome

All our retreat locations are handpicked to add something extra and individual to the holidays. As a Pilates in Brighton holiday guest you not only get the opportunity to develop your Pilates technique with expert teachers, but you can also experience the local culture with other like-minded people. That could mean anything from sunset strolls along the beach after a luxurious mud bath, meandering round bustling souks and markets, or even Tango classes in downtown Buenos Aires.

Local cultural pursuits are an integral part of our ethos, including a range of diverse activities such as mountain-walking, salsa dancing, midnight cruises, and even classical music festivals.

What they say…

I would usually shy away from a week of exercise, but Pilates in Brighton holidays are so much more. They are real escapes for real people – not just robotic health retreats spent crunching on raw food.” Lily – Morocco, October 2013

We pride ourselves on bringing the conventional exercise holiday to life and offering the ideal environment to allow you – our guest – to relax, restore balance and have the experience you want – whatever that may mean. So if you’d rather skip a class and have that extra massage instead, or just relax by the pool with a glass of wine – be our guest, it’s your holiday!

‘This was a cracking holiday. The only way I can think of improving it next year would be to make it fourteen days! The mountain walking was excellent.. thank you so much for your care and professionalism.’– Brian Clark – Turkey (Pilates and Walking), May 2014

’48 hours after arriving back home and I’m still floating on air from a superb Pilates retreat at Spectrum, Turkey.  I feel restored, renewed, and thoroughly revitalised.  I’m certainly much fitter both in mind and body, and can’t wait to return for what will be my third trip there sometime in the future.  This time Pilates and walking proved to be a perfect mix, and along with the various options such as bbq boat trips, beauty treatments and therapies, the week went far too quickly.  It is hard to do justice to the uplighting feeling of exercising against the backdrop of such magnificent scenery, the lush green hills and the beguiling haze of the distant mountains.  It was great to meet some new people too and the group worked brilliantly, as the regular peals of fun and laughter demonstrated.  All credit to Carolyn for finding this gem, for fantastic Pilates sessions and for running the whole show so wonderfully, and of course to Joanne and Tom of Spectrum for creating such an inspiring place.’– Jeannie – Turkey (Pilates and Walking), May 2014

I had no idea of what to expect when I arrived at my first Pilates holiday, last year at Dalyan. Certainly some of the things I hoped for –  the sun, the Eastern Mediterranean exotic food, dramatic views of mountains and lakes – they were all there in abundance. But there was something more which made these qualities all the more precious. The people there. That’s what made the holiday so special. Starting with the hosts at the Spectrum Centre, Joanna and Tom. With unobtrusive skill, they made us feel welcome, more than that, they made us feel part of a family. It is extraordinary how they managed to combine the excitements and pleasures of new experiences with the security of being contained by a caring couple. And of course the Pilates maintained the high standard we have come to expect from Caroline and her team – with the added bonus of a relaxing dip in the pool only yards away from the location of the class. And there were the boat trips to the sea, the night time barbecues on the boats…. I am definitely going again! See you there? – Brian Clark (81) – Turkey, July 2013

The teachers were great and very encouraging and supportive; it was great to be able to progress (was doing things by the end of the week that I couldn’t imagine at the beginning)…but it was still a holiday. I can’t remember the last time I relaxed so much; lounging by the pool, going for a Haman treatment in the spa. The hotel was lovely and the other members of the group were fantastic! I came back feeling so much healthier – which is pretty unusual after a holiday for me.  The day-trips to Marrakesh and up the Atlas Mountains were fabulous; but I will mostly remember the fantastic setting, the wonderful group of people and the fact that I returned with a “coretastic” core ! Definitely sign me up for next year! Lucy Bennell – Morocco October 2013

‘Thank you so much for a truly sublime holiday. The combination of expert and caring Pilates tuition, a lovely calm location, good food and great company meant we were restored at a very deep level and will feel the benefits for a long time to come. Congratulations  and warmest love to everyone involved.’- MJ, Brighton – Turkey, July 2013
