Pilates & Acro Yoga Retreat
After last year’s huge success we are proud to bring back the dream-team Tash Barnard and Casey Conroy for a fun-filled, intense week of discovering Bali (and yourself) through new perspectives…



Join Miriam Friedrich-Honorio and Mareile Paley on this brand-new retreat in a to-die-for location – a private oasis just outside of Marrakech, Morocco. On this retreat we will shower you with gifts from the heart: We will introduce you to the magic of the Gyrokinesis® Method, let you discover colorful souks and luxurious spas, ride camels on the beach and sleep deliciously under artfully painted ceilings…


Pilates & Personal Training
Running for the third year now, this exclusive retreat at the award-winning Kamalaya Health & Wellness resort, promises to knock you off your feet! Think delicious, healthy food, fun exercise classes, one-on-one instruction and lots of lots of pampering.


Your Personalized Pilates Retreat
Visit Mareile in her home base – a charming Turkish village near the Aegean Sea. Stay for a few days, a week or more. Your own private Pilates holiday could start tomorrow…

Bring your Pilates to the next level and train directly with Mareile Paley, owner and founder of Pilates Retreat Asia.

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

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 retreated 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 Ula Watu area very much and 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 defiinitely interested.
Guillaume, Hong Kong
