PILATES

Pilates, Health & Well-Being Before Everything

At Yaga retreat we provide Pilates classes which offer all the postural, flexibility toning and injury-prevention benefits of traditional Pilates. But it goes a step or three further. Along with our own refinements, we’ve added elements from other exercise disciplines, including circuits, weights and spin.

The result is an intense and demanding full body-workout that sculpts figures, builds lean, toned muscle, fast, and will leave you buzzing with endorphins.

If you’re new to Yaga Retreat or any form practice of Pilates, your first class should be a Beginners session, regardless of your fitness level. This is to make sure that you’re familiar with the various steps, and comfortable with the techniques you’ll be using.
