PILATES WITHIN Pilates, Yoga and Shiatsu Retreat Following the huge success of our October retreat, Anja and myself decided to join up for another fabulous retreat. This time you will play and learn, move and be moved right here in Alacati, my home of choice at the turquoise aegean sea. We will offer 2 packages: the affordable ‘just move’ package if the Pilates and Yoga classes are your main focus and the ‘pure bliss’ package where massages and spa treatments are included in your luxurious, healthy getaway package. Oh, and the location? The most beautiful Yoga studio around


FIT & WELL LUXURY RETREAT 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.


Pilates All Levels Retreat One of our ongoing favorites, our multi-talented and super-spirited Tash Barnard will lead another wonderful retreat for us in Bali in early 2016.

Dear Pilates & Yoga fans,

2015 is the Chinese year of the goat and I just booked myself a flight to Hong Kong. I can’t wait to hook up with old friends and colleagues and see what’s cooking on the Pilates front at my old stomping ground. Right after that trip, I’ll be off to Morocco for our first retreat combining Pilates and Gyrokinesis®. Happy reunions are afoot in June in Thailand at the ever-amazing Kamalaya. Oh, and Turkey is back on the menu as well. Need a little break in May? Visit me at my home of choice, the pictoresque village of Alacati, where you can stay at the amazingly beautiful Alavya Hotel. Please do email with any specific questions and don’t forget to subscribe to our mailing list above. Enjoy your life and join us soon! signature


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

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

  • I guess after almost 10 years, #Pilates follows me everywhere. Last summer we explored the south of France with my family and while my son Iluka climbs rocks, I bend over sideways.
