THE TEACHERS Our 2018 Teaching Team will be: Lisa Bradshaw will once again bring her wisdom, passion and unique ability to clarify and demystify the Pilates method to our Retreat. Her classes are legendary and her energy boundless. Her unique ability to make the Classical Mat accessible to every level of ability is one of the highlights of the Retreat as is her latest creation, HIP (High Intensity Power) Pilates. Donna Pourteymour attended her first Pilates Retreat at a farm in the hills of Italy in 2007 and since that time she has been somewhat obsessed with creating the perfect Pilates Retreat. She looks forward to teaching on this year’s Retreat and will bring her obsession for technique and the “small changes that make the big difference” to this Retreat, along with her complete belief that Pilates will change your body, your mind and if you let it, your life. Mandy Penalver is a truly gifted teacher who brings the practice of TRUE REST Mediation to our Retreat. TRUE REST is a guided meditation. No prior experience is necessary as no effort is required other than to lie down and listen. In this practice, layers of accumulated physical, mental and emotional tension are released. True Rest is a deeply restorative and highly therapeutic practice which brings both physical and mental benefits. Plus Additional Cobham Pilates Teachers as demand requires.
