PIlates & Wellness Retreat

Event Highlights

  • Fitness
  • Mat Pilates is designed to bring your mind and body in harmony and feel each movement as it directly works a focused group of muscles. In this beautiful surrounding, your two mat Pilates classes a day will reform, rejuvenate and refresh your whole body and mind.
  • Adventure:
  • There are so many incredible things to see and do in Costa Rica, and on our retreat, we experience some of the highlights! We will have a surf lesson (all levels welcome) led by experts to help you stand up and feel the wind in your hair. And then on our last full day together, we'll celebrate with a memorable catamaran sail along the ocean with snorkeling, open bar and possible whale sightings!
  • Relaxation:
  • Taking time to relax and recharge is a top priority on this retreat. In between workouts and activities (which are all totally optional!), you'll have plenty of time to lay on the beach, go tanning by the pool or take advantage of the complimentary bikes and kayaks at the resort. Also, SUP rentals and pampering spa services are available for an additional fee.



Thursday, February 13
Welcome to Costa Rica! Guests will arrive at the Liberia, Costa Rica (LIR) airport and take a provided shuttle to the resort to check in and get settled. We'll come together before sunset for introductions and our first class to move our bodies after a day of travel. In the evening, we'll have a group dinner at the hotel (included) and continue to get to know one another.

Friday, February 14​
Adventure awaits! Today we will wake up to a Pilates class which will stretch us out and get our bodies ready for our surf lesson! After breakfast, we'll make our way to a neighboring beach where our expert surf instructors will teach us how to ride the waves, one of the favorite pastimes in Costa Rica. We'll learn skills on land and then put them to the test in the water! The rest of the day will be free to relax and recover, and we'll meet in the afternoon for a more restorative Pilates class. The evening is yours to relax, perhaps with a cocktail around the bonfire?

Saturday, February 15
Wake up to sunshine in paradise! We'll have an invigorating morning Pilates class and then enjoy a fresh, delicious breakfast. Then we'll enjoy a free afternoon to relax and ease into vacation mode. In the late afternoon, we'll come together for a second class with Brooke followed by a free night.

Sunday, February 16
A day of fun in the sun! This morning we'll start with a high-intensity Pilates class and then breakfast overlooking the ocean. We'll have a few hours to relax at the resort, and then we'll be picked up for our afternoon on a catamaran, complete with lunch, drinks, snorkeling, and ultimate relaxation! Upon our return, we'll come together for a group dinner (included).

Monday, February 17
For anyone departing today, we will have a morning class, breakfast and say our goodbyes. For the rest of the group, we'll have a free day to relax at the beach or pool, treat yourself to a spa treatment, or sign up for an extra activity like paddle boarding! In the evening, we'll meet once again for a Pilates class and then have a free night.

Tuesday, February 18
Goodbyes are bittersweet! We'll kick off our final morning with a workout and breakfast, and then we'll soak up our last rays of sunshine, and depart for the airport feeling refreshed and stronger than ever!
