What happens on a PIlates Retreat?

Monday, June 19th, 2017

Relaxing Pilates Retreat at The Orange Tree, Rosedale, June 2017

This time last week I was on a windy Moor in the East Rosedale valley teaching on my first Pilates Retreat. Rosedale is a spectacular valley in the North York Moors, I’ve spent many a family weekend there as a child, walking and playing on the Moors and actually ended up working for the North York Moors National Park for 5 years, but I’ll never get used to the views, they are breathtakingly beautiful.

The Orange Tree, Rosedale, UK

The idea behind the retreat was for people to ‘retreat’ and leave everything behind, 3 days to completely relax, digitally detox, take part in Pilates classes and learn about the body and how Pilates can help YOU! A totally immersive and restorative 3 days.

We were a group of 10 people, some came alone, others with friends, some were local to Teesside, and some had travelled, the furthest coming from London. Yet, there was one common unifying factor, everyone wanted to relax and de-stress.

We left Teesside and headed up onto the strikingly bare and beautiful moors to get to The Orange Tree, the journey was made even more interesting as we had to drive via Chimney Bank due to the main road into Rosedale being closed, Chimney bank has a max gradient of 33% and 2 hairpin bends!

Once all of the participants had arrived and checked into their rooms, we met again at the large dining room table for introductions and a chat about what lay ahead. People are attracted to retreats for many different reasons and experience of Pilates is never essential on my retreats, I’m always happy to take mixed groups and try to teach as individual and hands on as possible. As those of you who come to my classes will vouch, it’s never a case of one-exercise fits all. And we really were a mixed group, several had never done Pilates before to 10 years experience of group classes.

Dinner was next on the agenda with a simple but oh so tasty 3-course vegetarian meal, after a short rest we moved up to the attic studio for a peaceful evening relaxation practice. With everyone zened out we floated off to bed for an early night.

Attic Studio Space, The Orange Tree, Rosedale

One of my favourite parts of the retreat was how I got to wake everyone up at 7am 🙂 I’d walk the upstairs corridors gently tapping the large gong, this was actually requested by 2 people on the retreat who had been before and said what a lovely sound it was to be woken up by!

At 7:30am we gathered for a gentle Pilates stretch class, I should say that attendance at sessions is completely optional and it’s no problem if you decide to hit the snooze button (on the gong!). The farmhouse breakfast soon followed, then a 2 hour Pilates Workshop and then lunch, we certainly didn’t go hungry! After lunch participants could do whatever their hearts desired, many had holistic treatments (optional extra) or went for a walk on the moors, you could also relax in sauna or the hot tub over looking the valley, and what a view it is!

Look at the view from the hot tub!

Afternoon tea was next and people just came in and out when they were ready after a leisurely couple of hours of free-time, then to get everyone moving again, I taught a pre-dinner class, nothing too strenuous, just enough to get the body gently moving.

Guess what was next?……The delicious 3-course vegetarian dinner, like I said, we never went hungry! After a short rest to let dinner settle I got everyone back up to the attic studio for a guided meditation. Lying down in the studio, surrounded by comfy cushions and fluffy blankets. Listening to the sound of little lambs bleating for their mums on the warm breeze through the windows, the peaceful feeling in the room was palpable. Everyone floated off to bed for the second night in a row.

The final day followed much of the same format only we used the newly renovated Methodist Chapel Studio for the workshop; it’s a stunning studio space with huge windows overlooking the valley. Today lunch was The Orange Tree’s famous nut-roast, after lunch I said my goodbyes to this lovely group, some I’ll see again in classes at the studio and the rest I hope I’ll see in the near future at another retreat. This retreat will remain extra special to me, it’s my first and I’m incredibly lucky to have gotten the nicest bunch of people possible. I also remain humbled everyday that I get to teach people about the life changing effects Pilates can have on the body and mind.

If you’re looking for some time-out, a new perspective on things or to make like-minded friends, I’d love you join me on a Pilates Retreat, whether you come alone or with friends you’ll be welcomed with open arms.

 What some of my clients said:

‘Highly recommend this retreat, a little bit of heaven, loved Vicky’s teaching style, lovely person and thoroughly professional but relaxed style. Gave me some great tips to help with my posture’

‘Vicky has a lovely manner and her teaching style adapts to everyone’s needs, ensuring everyone comes away with something personalised to work on.’

‘Thoroughly enjoyed the whole event, Vicky you were very relaxed and welcoming, I would really recommend the experience to others, the Orange Tree is a lovely place, food great and walks in the area’.

 ‘Great Pilates sessions with a real chance to take time to reflect on the basics with individual attention from Vicky, it made me realise what I’m missing in the classes I attend at home, if only I lived near to Yarm!’

 ‘Vicky was very informative and explained each move/technique in detail in simple easy to understand terms for a non-Pilates person and I eventually achieved the moves correctly. Loved her personal touches.’

Studio Clothing Launch, 10% off this week ONLY!

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

I am thrilled to be able to announce the launch of our brand new studio clothing range, ‘The Lithe Collection, Spring/Summer 2017’ has been a long time coming!

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love my sportswear, I live in it 7-days a week, so when I was thinking of creating a range of studio clothing it had to be something that I would want to wear day in and day out.

I settled on a local company Bread and Butter Threads, based in Middlesbrough, Kim listened to all of my (many) requirements and worked with me to source the range, everything is printed in house by Kim in Middlesbrough.

I hope you’ll love it as much as I do!  Click here to go to the on-line store, to celebrate the launch for this week only (1-8th June) we are offering 10% off the full Lithe Collection, enter LAUNCH10% at the checkout to get your discount, you can order and pay online or at Health Hub Clinic Reception, you’ll be notified when your order is ready to collect from the studio, this normally takes 7 days.

Studio High Rise Leggings £35, Flow Vest £22

Book for May at the Studio

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Hi Everyone,

As some of you are aware, we are making changes to our booking system. We are so excited to start using the system with you and are sure you will love it too!  It will make booking and managing your classes so much easier!

Firstly, let me just reassure you, that if you attend a regular class and have expressed an interest to continue you will be re-booked into it, starting from May, you’ll just need to add your chosen payment method to your on-line account, accounts can be set up next week after receiving your invite. 

Teamup invites

By the middle of next week you will all receive an email to invite you over to teamup. All you need to do is confirm your email address by clicking on the link within the email and save a password to secure your account. Keep your eyes peeled guys. If you haven’t seen one come through, keep an eye on your junk email…

If you attend the same class/es every week you can sign up for a Direct Debit, add a recurring booking for the class/es and that’s it.  Nothing else to do (ever!) and you can manage any catch ups on-line yourself.  I’d definitely recommend this as the easiest method, but if you look at the ‘Studio Payment Options’ table on the website (link is below) you’ll see which one works best for you.  

Not ready to commit to a Direct Debit? No problem, buy a class pack of 6 or 12 classes and you still get to manage your payments and catch ups on-line.  If you wish to make a recurring booking for the same class, this will need to be renewed every time your class credits expire to keep your place in the same class. 

Studio Payment Options

 

PS. Zoom in on the picture!

See the document above for full details on the different payment options, you’ll need to decide which one is best for you.  Any questions just ask me.  🙂 

I’ll be sending further details and instructions once the Team Up invites have been sent.  

Hope this helps, Any questions in the mean time please let me know.

Studio Payment Options

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Hello,

As you may know we are making changes to our booking system at the studio, we can’t wait to get started and know that you will find it so much easier to book and pay on-line.

You will shortly receive an invite to join the studio’s booking system from Team Up.

We have a variety of easy payment methods for coming to classes at the studio.

Pay as You Go/Drop ins are available for almost every class, you won’t need a class pack or direct debit to attend a PAYG class and booking is instant through your Team Up account.

Have a look at the table below to see which package is the best one for you.

If you attend the same class every week I would highly recommend a Direct Debit, recurring class booking.  The monthly Direct Debit prices offer a discount on the usual class costs, and take into account the 4 weeks a year that the studio is closed.  2 weeks at Christmas, 1 week at Easter* (1 week in May instead of Easter this year) and 1 week in October for Yarm Fair.

Any questions, just ask.

Thanks

Vicky 07929 601043
