Have fun, try something new, let’s fly!    

Pilates & Acro/Aerial Yoga Retreat

Come with us to Bali – one of those perfect places to go on retreat. Couple that with a dream venue and two dream teachers and you will be speaking about this retreat for the rest of your life. Turn the wishful thinking into reality and join us in Bali. What can I say…you are more than worth it!


A retreat to recharge and reconnect…

Pilates & Yoga Retreat

We found the greek islands a perfect place to truly disconnect in order to reconnect with yourself. In this retreat movement in all its shapes and forms stands at the forefront: From the up and down of our breath during meditation, via the deep inner connections found during the Pilates and Yoga sessions, to the hiking and swimming while exploring Amorgos. A retreat to embrace yourself!

A peek behind the scenes…

I’m just back from Portugal! For a preview on where we will be in October, check out the video above.

There are still spots for our Bali retreat Pilates Elevate in May with our dearest Tash Barnard. You can also join us in Greece, Morocco or Sri Lanka.

Probably the most exciting news is that I have teamed up with Rael Isacowitz for an epic retreat in Portugal. If I had to chose for you… well who would not want to spend a week with Rael?

For more flexibility and bespoke attention, join me for a private retreat here in Turkey.

I really hope that you can find a time and location that brings us together – I am already looking forward to retreating with you.



An all around inspirational retreat…                                  

Pilates, Yoga & Photography Retreat

This creative retreat is one of our favorites! Led by two phenomenal teachers, you will explore movement in all its forms with daily Pilates & Yoga classes, but also train your creative eye with fun and inspiring photography workshops. This retreat is open for all levels, just bring yourself and we will take care of the rest!


Movement with Intention. Join us for the retreat of a lifetime…

Pilates & Martial Arts Retreat with Rael Isacowitz
We could not be happier to announce a dream come true: a retreat lead by Pilates master trainer, teacher of teachers and founder of BASI Pilates – Rael Isacowitz! And as we love to combine Pilates with other forms of movement, Rael has invited Shifu Wang Bo – world-renowned Shaolin monk and Kung Fu Master – to join us for 7 days of ‘Movement with Intention’. Book your spot soon, as spaces are limited.

Fantastic week with excellent teaching, wonderful people in a magnificent setting.  All that I was hoping for and more. The teachers had a presence and experience that was clear and reassuring, I knew I was in safe hands! It went deeper than my everyday Pilates and I went away having learnt a lot. I didn’t expect the week to go so quickly. I also didn’t expect to feel so profoundly refreshed at the end. Liz McCord, UK

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

As a top notch Pilates expert, Mareile brings a holistic approach to the human body. Her insights on kinesiology and wellness are profound. More practically, for the spa environment, she is focused on offering sessions where guests can experience a positive relationship with their bodies and their lives. This is the kind of reflective and, ultimately, transformative experiences we look to offer every spa guest. Gregory Ugrin, USA

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
