About The Adventure

Wellness, we hear you say! What does that even mean?

Well, it really does mean something different to everyone. At Women Embrace Adventure, wellness means a balance of fitness, fun, relaxation, laughter, healthy eating and a little bit of indulgence. So, don't worry, this weekend isn't just about Pilates, love and mung beans – yes, there will be some of that, BUT we will also have a hell of a lot of fun, laugh lots and indulge in some local wine and cheese with some WEA surprises along the way.

We have partnered with FitNesse Strength and Wellbeing Studio (this is where Kat and Sharon practice Pilates) to bring you this all-inclusive luxury Winter Wellness / Pilates retreat.

This weekend is ideal for all fitness levels; those who are new to Pilates or have been doing it for years and those looking for a weekend to get away from the hustle and bustle of real life, take some time to focus on themselves to relax and unwind.

Over the three days, you will be immersed in inspiring Pilates and Stretch & Release classes. You can participate in four group Pilates classes, two evening Stretch and Unwind sessions, one Water FiTnesse session in the indoor mineral pool, and a Roller Session to end the weekend.  Choose to attend all sessions or pick and choose to suit how you want the weekend to go – this is your time away and it's all about you, after all!

Why Pilates? Health professionals say Pilates improves posture, muscle tone, balance, joint mobility, and relieves stress and tension. Pilates emphasises alignment, breathing, the flow of movement to improve flexibility, coordination and balance, build core strength and develop control and endurance in the body. Taking a regular class will benefit everyone, from beginners to advanced. Pilates really is for every BODY.

We'll start with the Pilates basics and progress through a repertoire of movements at a level and pace that suits you. You will feel your muscles working intensely, moving your body through all planes of motion while focusing on breath work, leaving you feeling energised and invigorated. 

Oh, and did we mention the 60-minute massage?? Oh yeah!

How many women will be on my adventure?

I'll be coming on my own, is that ok?

Not a problem at all!  Lots of women come on their own to our adventures. Your Women Embrace Adventure hosts will make sure you meet everyone when you arrive on Friday. We always have lots of fun; there's no pressure, no judgment, and lots of encouragement from everyone. By the end of the weekend, you may have just found some new adventure friends!

We hope you can join us!
