Pilates & Playfulness in
Southern Portugal

September 30th  – October 6th, 2022

Join me on this amazing adventure to the beautiful Algarve region of Portugal, known for its picturesque beaches.  Enjoy a combination of healthy living and incredible experiences. We will practice Pilates, honor ourselves with mindfulness and gain clarity on our very own core values.  Together, we will explore this beautiful region of Southern Portugal by venturing off to the famous caves and picturesque towns along the coastline. We will ignite our childlike playfulness, while creating memories that will last a lifetime. This is a trip that will speak to your core…your heart, mind and abs will thank you! Bring an open mind and a sense of adventure…


We will be staying at a beautiful boutique hotel perched high on the Algarve coast with panoramic ocean views, surrounded by spectacular botanical gardens. With a beautiful fitness space, large outdoor swimming pool, outdoor chess set and multi-level terracing you will have plenty of space to relax, unwind.  This is a place that will soothe your soul and rejuvenate your spirit.  You will feel right at home.
