Imagine this: You wake after a peaceful night’s sleep at a luxury tranquil hideaway in the Sri Lankan hills. You step out of your comfy bed and pad, barefoot, to your villa’s private outdoor shala (mindful-exercise space); just you and fellow pilates retreat-goers for company. The sun hasn’t quite risen so the warm, but not-yet-hot, climate guides your way to the shala where you lie back down and let the pleasant morning air revive all of your senses.

You and the Sri Lankan sun start your day in unison; as it peaks above the horizon, you are guided through a series of rejuvenating and rebalancing Pilates exercises designed to condition your body and mind. And this is just the beginning… 

A getaway, in the true sense of the word, this rebalancing retreat takes place deep in the Sri Lankan countryside and is run by friendly-sister duo, Laura and Hannah. Laura is a certified pilates instructor and chartered physiotherapist, and Hannah is a Sri Lankan resident who knows the island’s hidden gems as an insider
