Just been to the Sky Retreats Gran Canaria retreat for my third visit and I have to say I had the best time yet. I’m not sure how Alex, Nyra and Estrella do it but it keeps getting better. The yoga practice was sublime, Nyra is amazing and really works positive energy into the sessions. And Pilates with Alex is just amazing, my body feels so good and my powerhouse is pumped! Estrella’s food is wonderful, so healthy and full of flavour, and her music selection sets such a perfect vibe for the poolside. The hikes are challenging and picturesque, and offsite dinners are a real treat. The best thing about this trip was my two friends who made my week so much fun that my muscles were aching from laughing! Couldn’t recommend more highly!
What an amazing week it was in Santorini, Greece with Sky Pilates and Yoga. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this retreat. It was absolutely perfect. I feel completely rejuvenated and relaxed. Alex did a great job with mixing up the classes as well as adding in optional excursions and a little R&R by the pool. I definitely will be back again! You don’t want to miss this fun group of loving, caring and motivating people. Alex, Frauke and Ashley have truly touched me and inspired me in many ways! Until next time see you all again soon!
Alex, the master Pilates teacher, together with his team, delivers a truly rewarding experience. Those three words “activate your powerhouse” will become the key to a rich and fulfilling week of activity. Every aspect of the retreat excels - from the wonderful vegetarian food, full of imagination, flavour and goodness, to the mindful yoga instruction by Nayra, and Alex´s powerful Pilates - so that you will emerge stronger and energised. Our base was a lovely villa close to the pretty, artisanal town of Agüimes. A great place for craft Canarian produce, including wonderful cheeses. There are lots of places to swim, but we chose Puerto de Mogán with its flower-bedecked houses and sheltered cove. For the fashionistas among us (and there were a few) there was Maspalomas. Trekking into the Guayadeque ravine to the Caldera de los Marteles, through a riot of colour, was a joy. Our hike to Roque Nublo, followed by an outdoor lunch in the pretty town of La Tejeda, was equally inspiring. We are returning in November.…
Have just spent a fantastic week with Alex & his team. The villa overlooking the Guayadeque ravine is so beautiful and spacious. Alex is a wonderful Pilates teacher & Nayra’s Yoga classes were truly inspirational. The food was great, particularly the wonderful breakfasts. Alex was a great host & nothing was too much trouble. He brought us on two great hikes, where the scenery was breathtaking & also brought us to the beach at Maspalomas. We have already booked our return visit!
Just came back from Sky Pilates Retreat in Gran Canaria and already planning my next one Pilates retreat with Alex. Alex is an amazing instructor, he'll keep you motivated and make an advanced Pilates workout very achievable:). I can't forget Estrella's cooking, it was simply the best!!! So much positive energy, I came back fully re-energised. Very special friendship with other participants, everyone was so lovely. Very comfortable rooms. Special personal touch, pick-up and drop-off to the airport, lots of fun hiking. I can't wait to come back. And I really hope to experience Estrella's cooking again, she is such a lovely lady. I'll be back!!!
