Nourish your body and soul – Pilates & Yoga Retreat with Life in Movement

Nourish your body and soul – Pilates & Yoga Retreat with Life in Movement

Join Tash Barnard, Dominique Vieira and Mareile Paley in a weeklong deep exploration of movement. Discover Pilates and Yoga as a tool to find peace and a deeper connection to yourself.

In these crazy times, when was the last time you treated yourself to yourself? To spend time with yourself? By yourself? For yourself? Surrounded by the elements, the sun, the sea, the sand and the wind you can take a moment to breathe. To be. Enough. Again.

Our retreats are all about movement and definitely more than just ‘an active holiday’. As always, we bring you the best Pilates and movement teachers, so expect to be challenged, to learn, go deeper and find yourself in your body in ways that will elevate and exhilarate you.

As it is our signature, each guest gets a private one-on-one session as part of their retreat package. This extra time spent with you helps us to get to know you and to serve you better during the group sessions. Whether your aim is to bring your Pilates or Yoga practice to the next level or to find deep relaxation, let yourself be guided by the expert knowledge of your teachers

Spend a week with us as we hold space for you. Renourish, replenish and finally return home full of calm, healthy energy.

Tash Barnard, Dominique Vieira & Mareile Paley

Tash Barnard


Tash’s high energy and passionate encouragement brings infectious joy and laughter to anyone in the group. No wonder that we have so many return guests. During class, Tash will push you to reach for the stars and to believe in the impossible. Tash is a highly accomplished Pilates teacher and BASI Pilates teacher trainer. Every year she joins us on our retreats with all the passion and excitement you’d expect from a first timer. If you are looking for a mentor who will encourage you to believe in yourself, a week with Tash might very well change your life.

Dominique Vieira


Dom teaches Vinyasa & Restorative Yoga, as well as a meditation and breathwork. She firmly believes that yoga is for everybody and every body and carries that ethos throughout her teachings. Her classes focus on intelligent sequencing and making the practice as accessible as possible. She places a lot of value on the connection to breath and cultivating that beautiful feeling of presence and connection through breath, movement and stillness. For her, the yoga practice is really a practice of coming back home to oneself with loving-kindness. She can’t wait to guide you through your own practice.

Mareile Paley


If a retreat is a beautiful piece of art, Mareile is the glue that holds all the pieces together. Having started in 2010 leading her own Pilates retreats, she soon found her true calling and strength in connecting people, in crafting and curating truly exceptional retreat experiences and in finding the best teachers. The personal attention you will receive before, during and after the retreat can all be attributed to Mareile’s deep desire to make people happy and to make you feel valued and special.
