At Studio Blue we believe the perfect vacation is all about YOU. It’s about taking time for yourself…time to reassess, rejuvenate, and center yourself. It’s about enjoying the world around you and all its beauty and wonder at a slower pace, far removed from the stress of your daily life. It’s about feeling and experiencing new things that will build strength in your body and expand your thinking. And it’s about making new friends.
For the last 5 years we have taken clients “away from it all” to a place with an abundance of natural beauty, where they could take a break from both the pressures at work and in their family and social lives, and get back in touch with their inner selves. We’ve taken clients to Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita, and in 2014 to Santa Teresa on the lush and tropical west coast of Costa Rica.
Each retreat brings together a group of like-minded individuals who want to make time for themselves to reevaluate their lives and recharge their bodies and spirits. We have welcomed guests of all ages, from 20 to 60+, men and women, some with Pilates experience and some without. A few in each group may know each other from classes at the Studio, but the majority have never met each other, and in some cases, have never even been inside Studio Blue. By the end of our time together we have built bonds of friendship, supporting each other in our daily Pilates practice, sharing meals and laughs, and exploring together.
While amenities vary for each retreat, each one includes daily class(es) taught by Dan, owner of Studio Blue. On week long retreats Dan starts by assessing the group’s fitness level and tailoring classes designed to challenge you in a safe, supportive manner. Morning classes may focus on classic Pilates exercises on the mat, while afternoons we add balance work and body sculpting. By the end of the week you will leave feeling fit and toned, mentally centered and relaxed, and ready to return to the real world rebalanced and full of positive energy and joy.
