GET LEAN AND TONED WITH ABSOLUTE SANCTUARY'S PILATES REFORMER HOLIDAYSClaire Bostock - Yoga & Pilates - Absolute Sanctuary
Fitness holidays are growing in demand as individuals are recognising the need to get away and shape up as a preventative measure against obesity & chronic illnesses. Unlike most fitness holidays you can find in the market, Absolute Sanctuary’s Pilates Reformer Bootcamp holidays promise a unique experience to get fit & firm whilst relaxing on the tropical island of healing – Koh Samui, Thailand.
Absolute Sanctuary’s Pilates Reformer Bootcamp
Tucked away on an idyllic spot on a hill overlooking the sea, just a few minutes drive from the airport, here awaits a haven for those who want to get in shape and rejuvenated at the same time. With our Pilates reformer boot camp holidays, you will not only indulge in daily fun, interactive dynamic group classes but also private sessions, nourishing superfood meals and invigorating spa treatments.
Core to the Bootcamp and unique to Absolute Sanctuary are our Group Reformer Classes. Leveraging on the expertise of Absolute Pilates (under the same umbrella group as the resort), also known as the inventor of Pilates Reformer Group experience, classes offered are specifically targeted to work various parts of the body. Setting itself apart from most Pilates holidays/vacations that center around Pilates mat work classes which use your own body weight as resistance, the pulleys and springs on the reformer machine provide the resistance needed to engage the core muscles effectively to work those hard to reach muscles that give rise to a long, lean & toned body. The versatility of the reformer machine not only enables a wide variety of exercises to be performed but also allows one to build flexibility, strength, endurance and coordination without adding muscle bulk.
Available in 5 or 7 days, the programme is ideal for both Pilates beginners as well as avid Pilates practitioners. With our comprehensive programme, guests can look forward to immersing themselves in Pilates with twice daily group reformer classes, a postural analysis session and an individual 1-1 reformer class. With the postural analysis session, our trainer will be able to identify postural imbalances in your body, which might be the cause of some bodily pains or conditions. After the postural analysis, the trainer will design a tailor-made programme for you that will be taught during the 1-1 session, providing for a tailor-made experience.
The all-inclusive boot camp holiday provides a holistic experience. Be prepared to be nourished with 3 delicious spa cuisine meals a day, be pampered with a wide variety of spa treatments as they knead away all your tension spots, and be invigorated with our group fitness classes.
At the end of the reformer Pilates holiday, you have a 30-minute exit Pilates consultation to review your progress and give tips on ways to keep you on track to meet your Pilates goals. You will leave not only feeling refreshed, recharged and revitalized but more importantly will have a new body. As Joseph Pilates sums it up: “In 10 sessions you will feel the difference. In 20 sessions you will see the difference. In 30 sessions you will have a new body”.
