Ragdale Hall – THE venue for fitness breaks
As well as the regular timetable which boasts over eighteen classes per day in two separate studios, a dedicated Exercise Pool and the grounds, guests on these breaks enjoy more specialist private sessions too.
In addition they can enjoy pampering treatments and amazing spa facilities too. The perfect ingredients for an inspiring and motivating fitness break.
Specialist fitness breaks in 2013/14:
Spend two nights with celebrity diet and movement specialist Joanna Hall, learning the correct techniques to get the most out of walking.
“The Joanna Hall walking experience was excellent and made this one of the best visits to Ragdale Hall I’ve experienced (and this is my seventh visit, I think)”
Thursday 7th to Sunday 9th November 2013
“The fitness team created some really good routines and definitely went the extra mile to make them as fun as possible – the Thriller class especially made me laugh harder than I have in ages.”
“The dance classes were wonderful. The teachers went at a really good pace. Many of the routines included a lot of new moves but you felt as though you could do them all by the end of the session – and being able to perform the final piece was a great feeling!”
“ABSOLUTELY A-MA-ZING (in a Craig Revel Horwood kind of voice)!”
Thursday 2nd to Saturday 4th October 2014
Whether you are a beginner or regularly practise Pilates, our experienced teacher, Cherry Baker, will guide you through a number of sessions to help you improve your technique and posture and learn more about the amazing health and wellbeing benefits of this type of exercise.
“It was magnificent. It was my first trip to Ragdale and will not be my last. Cherry was absolutely brilliant. I do regular Pilates and understood the concept of all the instructions, but Cherry made it clear for all levels. If you are thinking of making it a regular occurrence, I would gladly attend.”
“The Pilates Retreat was very good. I enjoyed the Glider session best. Cherry was warm and friendly and I feel gave everyone equal attention.”
