Gone scouting…

PaleyographyLogoAs a business owner, freelancer, mother, wife and teacher, life is often more than the sum of its parts. And so, until summer 2016, you will find Mareile Paley, founder and owner of Pilates Retreat Asia ‘on the road’ traveling with her husband and 2 kids. Don’t worry, we won’t forget you back home. Taking the business with us at all times, we have already made some interesting discoveries and tied connections for amazing retreat locations in the future.

Dear Pilates & Yoga fans,

After over 5 successful years and with 12 retreats on our backs, you might be surprised to find out that our 2016 menu seems somewhat light. Well, truth is: We are taking 10 months off to go traveling and scouting for new amazing retreat locations.

But be assured that Pilates Delight continues to cater to you in Turkey with my wonderful colleague Kathleen Schwiese holding the fort, so please do contact us for details.

Also, we are returning to Morocco in May 2016 and after my return in late summer, I’ll announce the details for our autumn Hike & Swim Pilates Retreat in beautiful Amorgos, Greece.

I wish you all a wonderful end of 2015, do stay in touch and see you next year!



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
