Pilates, Cooking and Nature

Take this fall to experience a real connection to nature, food and each other in a magical space. Nourish your body, mind and spirit with a truly hands on approach to your well-being. We will spend this time moving ourselves, moving each other and moving our minds into new spaces, sensations, touches and tastes. Pilates workouts will focus on control, breath and flow working individually and in pairs to experience the support and benefit of a truly shared experience. Tours of the Italian countryside, culinary experiences and cooking lessons will feed our spirits and our bodies for the long luscious days far beyond the retreat.

Alycea Ungaro teaches and is inspired by over 25 years of Pilates teaching experience. Her focus on custom content for individual bodies is what excites her each day to share the work with others through her Real Pilates studios. With a focus on self awareness and partnering exercises, classes will deliver what Joseph Pilates called “an internal shower”. We will practice at least once a day and leave room for some countryside excursions and cooking classes. Alycea has conducted retreats in Parrot Cay, Amangani and many others around the world. This is her first retreat to include her Italian born husband who cooks all the meals at home.
