Pilates Resumes at The Wellbeing Studio

I’ve just arrived back in Clevedon after 16 days teaching Pilates on retreat on the beautiful island of Skyros, Greece.  I’ve managed to remain tan-free and goth-white, which is a bit of a result given the weather was hot and sunny most of the time.

Here’s where my classes took place – the Magic Circle overlooking the sea and Atsitsa Island…

And here is my hut where I slept under a mosquito net to the sound of ticking crickets, lapping waves, rutting neighbours (!) and the occasional braying donkey…I won’t mention the cockerel…

Aside from teaching Pilates, I did manage plenty of hammock time.  Lisa Hannigan’s Passenger was one of the albums I listened to a lot while swaying in the breeze…

 

NB. Who knew getting into and out of a hammock would need so much core strength! Pilates for Hammock Users, a specialist class just crying out to be developed.  You read it here first…
