Imagine a holiday that gives you more…
One that is focused on you and other likeminded people, who not only want to experience that ‘carefree feeling’ and escape the spinning plates but are looking for a holiday that gives you time and headspace to be yourself.
With an acknowledgement of all aspects of health and well-being, in this stunning environment you can immerse yourself in Pilates and Mindfulness
helping to manage physical issues, stress and anxiety, as well as having a great deal of fun in the classes and enjoying the fabulous atmosphere and culinary delights at Casa Rosa.
What else can I do during the Pilates retreat in Umbria?
Ian will be your guide on local walks, in the woods or up into the hills where you can see Casa Rosa and other local farms dotted around the valley. If you’re feeling adventurous, he can even take you tree climbing in the oak tree that dominates the view from Casa Rosa. In the middle of the week, we will take a trip into Assisi, famous for its historic sites and associations with St Francis. There is also an opportunity, if you wish to share in a group meal at one of Assisi’s renowned restaurants.
Everything is optional and nothing is expected
The main focus of our retreats is for you to enjoy beautiful Casa Rosa and connect on a deeper level with the natural environment. We want you to return home, rested, restored, feeling physically and emotionally well with new skills, and fantastic memories.
What people say…
“Casa Rosa and everything Jo, Ian & Ella add to it, is the definition of a retreat and SO much more. From the background bird song, the fire flies & breath-taking nature, to the physical treats of nature walks, waterfall swims & perfectly pitched Pilates…I have never benefitted so much from one place in a short time. And as a true ‘foodie’, I was in heaven! Can’t recommend this retreat enough”
“What a glorious week. I expected a relaxing week in a beautiful setting having seen the pictures from last year but the week was so much more. The week was a delightful mix of gentle exercise ..Pilates outdoors and under the stars ! mindfulness, creative activities, wild swimming, walking and ‘me’ time to try painting that amazing view . A wonderful place to spend time with friends and make new friends. The food was yummy and the firefly shows a real treat. Ian’s tree swing took me back to my youth and lying in the hammock was a great way to listen to the birds and snooze a little. Loved the trip to Assisi and my massages to round off a perfect week. Thank you to everyone. Such a lovely group and such a laugh. This is a must do holiday and should be on everyone’s ‘bucket list’”
“This was my second retreat at Casa Rosa and this year was as magical as the last, with additional bonuses of lightening to add to the stars and fireflies and Aqualates (I forgot my costume last year!) It was also very educational – I can now identify a nightjar and talk authoritatively on the life-cycle of a firelfy as well as knowing how to make lavender bottles. I’m now off to dead head my roses following the instructions given to me by Cassie. It seems an appropriate activity for someone returning from a splendid week at Casa Rosa!”
