NEW! Pilates and Yoga Classes in Urla

Move your Life! Starting in October 2016, Mareile will lead regular group classes in different locations in the region of Alacati, Cesme, Urla. Classes are taught in English and/or German.

Dear Pilates & Yoga fans,

It’s hard to believe, but our big trip is over. I was on the road for 10 months with my family, we travelled through India, Sri Lanka, China and Pakistan.

I’ve returned home to Turkey refreshed and inspired and I am already eager to leave again – our wonderful Pilates Within Retreat with the amazing Anja Kursawe is coming up soon. There are a few spots left, so come and join us in Greece in October!

We are also working hard to publish our 2017 retreat calendar. During my travels, I have discovered some great new locations and am currently planning retreats like a mad-woman. New locations will include Portugal and Sri Lanka, and we will return to Greece and Morocco. The exciting news is that Bali is back on the programme as well and Turkey – where you are always welcome at my home, be it for a private retreat, group retreat or teacher training.

If you want to retreat with us this year, then there are still some spots in our Greece retreat in October where we will explore Pilates, Yoga and Hiking in beautiful Amorgos island and if you have always dreamed of bringing friends and family on an affordable retreat, ask me about our special Pilates Rejoice Retreat that will take place in Turkey from October 22nd – 28th 2016.

I wish you all a wonderful end of summer, do stay in touch and see you soon, I hope!

The retreat I did in Turkey October 2014 nourished my body and spirit with personalized Pilates training in a beautiful place with an amazing group of wonderful new friends. I was reminded that new adventures are exhilarating so jump in! Kate, USA

I could say so much about the week, I don’t know where to begin. I really loved the balance between yoga and pilates. I was looking for an introduction to pilates, and ideally in a way I could combine it with my existing yoga practice, and I got exactly that. I would be delighted to be able to join you both on a future retreat, be it Turkey or elsewhere. Natalie, UK

Loved the Pilates Retreat with Mareile in Koh Samui. It was very relaxing, amazing food, beautiful location, lovely people and good accommodation. It was the perfect week away to unwind. Would highly recommend it! Inge, Australia

Mareile does a wonderful job of working to make sure that all retreat participants have a meaningful experience …whether you are just a beginner or you have been practicing for years. The instructors were incredibly hands-on, and the location exquisite. I can’t wait for the chance to sign up for another retreat!

Elise, USA

I had an amazing time at Kamalaya. I have not felt so relaxed since years. The combination of Pilates and the second workout was just right, demanding but doable. Kamalaya is the perfect place for such a retreat. The service is incredible and the food is so delicious despite of being very healthy. Not only did I become leaner, more relaxed and learned much about Pilates, but I have also adapted a healthier life style in general using the tips that Mareile and Andrew shared with us. I wish I could do this much more often. Helen, London

After 9 years of practicing Pilates I took the next step and signed up for Mareile’s retreat. I was completely happy with the retreat and it would be hard to improve it. Thanks for making me discover Thailand. Mizzi, Netherlands

I feel so energized that my friends say I am ‘glowing’! Pauline, Hong Kong

To begin with, the retreat was all I expected and even more. I would highly recommend the retreat to people, and I will definitely go again in the future. Both of us are not the kind to take relaxing, pool-side vacations. But the retreat provided us with an opportunity to have a semi-active vacation, together with a semi pool-side vacation. A combination that worked out really well. Sam, New York

A truly wonderful experience unlike no other, in a gorgeous setting and very well organized with terrific leaders. I really enjoyed the beautiful resort, but also loved the excursion to Ulu Watu area very much and the Ubud day trip. The meals were spectacular, and the staff at Desa Seni really could not have been nicer. Thank you for everything you did to make this experience and memory possible. Leslie, Virginia

I felt very exhilarated, rested & relaxed, joyful & very happy to have spent the time with you both. I am grateful to have had you both as instructors for my first experience of a yoga/pilates retreat in such a beautiful location. Being a beginner with yoga and a first for Pilates, I thank you for your patience & understanding. Tisha, Canada


Just a quick email to let you know how much we loved that retreat. We really had a great time and came back with full energy to HK. Keep us posted on future retreats, we’re definitely interested. Guillaume, Hong Kong
