LL: My life can be very busy and full of calls and content to create and when you are in Maui you wake with the sun, your body feels the vibrations and you sleep so sound. It’s absolutely grounding. And, I think a trip to the island at least annually is necessary for us all. It’s a great practice for presentness. And, really allows you to know what it feels like when you go back home after retreat life.
Q:It will be your second Maui retreat, tell us about it…What are some of the unique features of this retreat and venue?
LL: First, this is the only retreat I host where we have access to a full on Pilates studio! All the equipment we need, designed as close to the source as we can and on the beach of Maui! You really cannot get more unique than that. I also love that retreaters can book their own accommodations and have friends and family join them on their Pilates Vacation! Most retreats anyone who comes with you has to pay for the full retreat. But something special about this retreat is that there is time set aside where retreaters can go off and explore the island on their own or with whomever traveled with them and they don’t need two retreat tickets. I also love how much Pilates is offered. Usually, just one class a day but this Maui retreat has sunrise and sunset mat classes, open studio time and two workshops! This retreat has two special workshops not ever had at previous retreats. I’ll be leading how to take your reformer practice to your mat practice. Great for when you travel and do not have access to a reformer. And, Arlene’s teaser workshop! The exercise that really challenges everyone who does it.
