Plan Your Own Pilates Retreat: Part Two

Pilates retreatShort and Sweet Retreats Vs. Long Smooth Adventures
By Tannis Kobrinsky of Health Habitravels

If you’ve read Part One of this series , you’ve got the basics in place, and maybe you’re ready for your first venture. A good way to ease into retreat planning is to try a week-long program at a venue that will host you and handle the logistics. If you decide to organize a trip yourself, I recommend starting with a short program near home before tackling longer adventures. Short retreats de-stress and offer participants opportunities to learn life-enhancing skills, make new friends, deepen existing relationships, explore unfamiliar destinations and hopefully trigger deeper self-awareness.

If you opt to organize a trip yourself, you’ll need to select the location, set tone or theme for the trip, lay out a tentative schedule, conduct classes and moderate group gatherings. Because participants bring expectations, personalities and issues to the mix, both short and long group programs take on their own life.

Tips for All Types of Programs
BE
CLEAR about what you’re offering. A potential once traveler asked me if fabulous yogis and yoginis were coming to my yoga retreat. I replied that my programs aren’t hard-core yoga retreats and beginners are welcome. Relieved, she and a friend came with me to Italy.

BE PREPARED. Plan a schedule. Send it in advance, but know nothing is set in stone.

BE ADAPTABLE. Things beyond your control will happen. Intangibles like personality conflicts or bad weather will require compromise and patience on your part.

Where Should I Have It?
For short programs, find a location within a few hours drive for most participants, and for longer trips, isolated venues or multi-venue trips, remember to factor in all transportation costs and transfers. For all types of programs, long to short and budget to luxury, some essential components must be in place.
• A designated teaching space or common area suitable for class.
• Group dining area.
• Bed and bath arrangements to match client budgets and aesthetic expectations.
• Roommate assignments. If people are traveling solo, match them as best you can with a roommate. If it turns out to be a bad combo, have a backup plan in place.
• Sanitary accommodations with attentive and organized management.

The Budget Getaway: $70 or less nightly per person
If participants don’t balk at shared bathrooms and sleeping quarters, consider retreat centers, ashrams and campgrounds. Look into spiritual, church and school/college organizations’ properties and National and State parks, or these resources:

The Mid-Range Retreat: $70 - $150 a night per person
Most people prefer double or single rooms with in-suite baths. I’ve found gems for short and long stays at B&Bs, boutique hotels and private vacatio...
