NEW Pilates Retreat at Parrot Cay
Come February, when winter’s cold has really worn out its welcome, jet down to Parrot Cay for a restorative Pilates retreat. Already known for its amazing yoga retreats featuring some of the top yogis in the world, the private isle is now offering a full, week-long Pilates experience, further illustrating the resort’s commitment to wellness. This year’s program comes after the success of the its “mini” retreats last year.
Elizabeth Feltman, instructor at the renowned Manhattan studio Erika Bloom Pilates Plus, is teaching this immersive program. With two classes each day, participants learn to set intention behind each movement for a true body transformation and form a great foundation for an active and balanced lifestyle. Feltman’s love of movement began with dance, and for the last 11 years, along with dancing and integrative nutrition, she has trained using Pilates to deepen her understanding of anatomy and kinesiology (the study of human movement).
While on the island, be sure to take advantage of the white sand beaches, healthy COMO Shambhala cuisine with an Asian flare emphasizing raw foods, and the very Zen COMO Shambhala Retreat and its host of Asian-inspired treatments. Daily group yoga classes are also available gratis!
