Pilates Retreat 2025: Sayulita Mexico

I remember the first time I stepped onto this property like it was yesterday. The warmth of the sun on my face, the sweet smell of flowers in the air and watching Sajeela, the owner of Haramara, walk towards us as if she was floating on a cloud.

Sajeela warmly greeting us and told us a story about the land the retreat center was built on and how it was sacred. I didn’t understand what she meant at the time but, 3 retreats later, over the past decade I can attest to the magic in this land and what she has cultivated.

Haramara deliveries something unique in the modern world we all live in. It offers a you a way to truly disconnect.

The cacitas are open air lit only by kerosine lamp. The paths are dirt, grounding you to the earth. The practice spaces are open air letting you breathe more deeply.

If you are looking to detox you mind, body and soul this is the retreat for you!

Cheers, Dan

What does the “perfect vacation” mean to you?

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.

Every year we take a group of clients “away from it all” to a location abundant in natural beauty and energy, where you can take a break from your daily stressors and renew and rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit.

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, 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.

Your retreat package price includes your room, classes offered and 3 daily meals. Depending on the location, taxes, shuttle service and/or other amenities may also be included (see each individual retreat for details). A nonrefundable deposit is required to hold your reservation for any retreat and amounts and payment dates listed individually.
