I’m still riding a happiness after coming back from our 10 day retreat in Nicaragua. Alywnn is beyond amazing.  Not only is she the BEST pilates instructor in my opinion but she has so much heart and went out of her way to make sure that everyone was so well taken care of. Between the gourmet food, the amazing pilates classes, the gorgeous location and meeting so many wonderful new people, I can't recommend doing a retreat with Alwynn enough. It's so nice to know that every detail is taken care of. I'll definitely be back for her next retreat!

frequently asked questions

How many classes per day on the retreat?

There are two 75-90 minute classes per day. One in the morning before breakfast and a sunset class in the evening.  You can arrange for private or semi-private sessions during the retreat.

Do we spend any time discovering local culture?

Yes, that's a big part of the retreat experience. We carve out 1-2 days for a full day trip into the city. Usually, on those days there is only 1 Pilates class. We visit museums, art galleries, markets, and all with a local tour guide with transportation. Activities on the retreat vary from a beach massage to group surf lessons to SUP to laying in a hammock.

I have dietary restrictions, will that be a problem?

Every meal can be personalized to meet your needs.

Do I need to arrange my own transportation?

The retreats do not include airfare. Transportation is arranged for your arrival & departure. Depending on the retreat, some will include the cost of transportation from the airport to the retreat and others may not.
