Rooted in Nature: A Pilates and Yoga Retreat – For Women

With Lia Masciulli

August 25 - 27, 2023

In today’s busy world, losing sight of who we are and how to care for ourselves can be easy. Join Pilates Master Trainer and Yoga Therapist Lia Masciulli for a unique opportunity to reconnect to your soul through movement, learn to rest in stillness, and explore self-expression. Over the course of three days, you’ll return to your roots so you can come home to yourself with a sense of inner peace. Enroll today in this deeply restorative nature-based program—just for women.

Imagine waking up to the calming sounds of nature, savoring healthy meals prepared just for you, and moving your body in a nourishing, supportive way while still having time in the day to connect with yourself. That’s a glimpse into what you can expect in this women’s retreat.

Over the weekend, you’ll be exposed to so much more than just Pilates; it’s an integrative experience where you will:

  • Utilize various props that support and meet your individual needs through blended Pilates & yoga movement, mindfulness, and meditation.
  • Eliminate muscular tension as well as mental and emotional stress.
  • Experience deep peace through soothing self-care, relaxation, and self-expression techniques.
  • Learn sequences that can increase breathing capacity and calm your nervous system.
  • Strengthen the relationship you have with yourself.

The remote location of this retreat allows you to be secluded and surrounded by trees, mountains, and rivers as you dive into the weekend and your practice. Throughout the retreat, you’ll be treated to healthy, comforting meals and have the option to indulge in a massage, explore the nature trails, or simply relax by the pool. By the end of the retreat, you’ll return home feeling grounded with renewed energy, inspiration for the future, and a deeper connection to yourself and those around you.
