Mindful Pilates Break 2022

A fusion of gentle Pilates movements, stretching, and relaxation

Sunday 3rd July – Tuesday 5th July 2022 – Mindful Pilates led by Nicola Bowen-Jones – SOLD OUT

We welcome you to join a small select group for a two-night Mindful Pilates Break at Ragdale Hall Spa, led by experienced teacher and practitioner, Nicola Bowen-Jones. Strengthen and tone your whole body as you relax and recharge in glorious countryside surroundings.

Whether you regularly practice Pilates or have attended a Pilates Break at Ragdale before, we 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 form of exercise. The Mindful Pilates break includes a fusion of gentle Pilates movements, stretching, and relaxation techniques including mindfulness practices.

Pilates not only helps to release tension- particularly in the neck and shoulders, but it also comes with an abundance of mental wellbeing benefits including relaxation and stress relief- which will be explored in depth on this Mindful Pilates break. It is also suitable for those recovering from back problems to runners, exercise enthusiasts or dancers keen to benefit from increased mobility, flexibility and stability.

Sessions will be tailored and may use some equipment according to suitability for the group, dependent on experience and ability.
