We held our first Pilates retreat at Galgorm resort and spa on 7th/8th October with 18 people joining us for two days of exercise and relaxation at one of Northern Ireland’s IMG-20151016-WA0062most luxurious hotels.

 

Participants were divided into two groups for the morning Pilates session and the afternoon stretching and relaxation hour. These were held in the new glass walled river house with views over the cascading river. Between classes everyone was free to enjoy the wonderful facilities in the recently opened spa, these included swimming pool, sauna, steam room, snow house and hot tubs. The glorious weather (200C) allowed sunbathing as well!

A delicious evening meal at one of the hotel’s restaurants was included in the overnight stay and following a restful night everyone was ready for another Pilates class and a final dip in the hot tub.

 

All headed home feeling physically challenged and mentally refreshed and are looking forward to the next retreat.
