2019 Pilates Retreat Attendee
“The twice daily pilates/meditation classes were excellent, cultural experiences including a visit to the Water Temple, bike ride through villages, visit to food market and cooking lesson. The accommodation in Ubud and Bingin was of a very high standard and all meals were superb! I was privileged to meet, and over the week, got to know some lovely ladies. Alison made sure that everyone was enjoying the holiday and there was plenty of free time included. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone wanting to see the best of Bali.”

“I booked the Pilates retreat with Alison with no expectations – I had not been to Bali previously and though I had dabbled in a little pilates and yoga over the years and am reasonably active, I was far from regular in my practice. The retreat was great from the outset – Alison’s warm, authentic and playful approach brought the group together and there was a wonderful amount of laughter, sharing and bonding in the group. Alison encouraged as much or as little participation in all activities with no expectations. Alison’s approach to Pilates itself was so engaging – clearly a lifestyle for Alison with wisdom and empathy and a  passion for improving the life of others physical and mental well-being. I couldn’t recommend highly enough.”

“Thank you Alison. Such a wonderful trip from beginning to end. I have de-stressed, renewed my energy and mindfulness  morning and afternoon Pilates and meditation was a great balance with enough time to explore this beautiful land, culture and people. You are a fabulous matriarch and did extremely well to keep us where we needed to be, although difficult at times. We know you did lots behind the scenes to make it all work so smoothly. If you need time out to regenerate, recentre, this trip will get you there. 🧘‍♀️”

Why Everyone is Loving Lifeworks

Pilates and stretch sessions
Each day builds on the day before and by end of week, you’ll feel stronger, stand taller and be more aware of your posture. Pilates is for every Body! Alison has many years of experience with a variety of clients from total beginner to athletes. We start with the basics and build from there. Our short guided meditations enable you to calm your mind through breathing techniques and help to set intensions, reduce stress, & increase gratitude and happiness. Evening stretch sessions & yoga will improve your flexibility which will ultimately help your posture and decrease pain. We will focus on shoulders, hamstrings, hip flexors, spine and calves.

When in Ubud
The hotel in Ubud is within walking distance of many shops, spas, and restaurants but is amazingly calm and peaceful. Large luxury rooms with verandahs overlooking rice fields, wake up to the quiet charm of village life. Sit and read on the expansive deck or swim in one of the two large pools.

 

When in Bingin
The stay in Bingin is at a brand new eco-friendly retreat villa. We will have the villa to ourselves with our own chef to prepare breakfasts and dinners. There are 6 individual villas, each with 2 rooms with 2 single or 1 king bed and a share private outdoor bathroom.  A Yoga bale that can hold 24 will be where we practice our Pilates, meditation and stretch each day.

 

Bike Ride
The bike ride from Kintamani to Ubud is a highlight for many of our clients. We start the day with a visit to the holy water temple where you have the opportunity to bathe in clear fresh spring water. Next we start riding (its all downhill!) through local streets in the hills behind Ubud, passing many interesting villages and sights! A stop at a rice paddie, a local primary school and a traditional home including the family temple before completing the tour at a large family home for lunch.

 

Workshops
We hold two very unique workshops that will change your life! Natural movement is a passion of Alisons and she will impart information that will help you learn about how moving more and moving better. Learn some of the small changes you can make to improve your alignment and posture. Help prevent knee, hip, neck, pelvic floor and back issues. The second workshop is on goal setting. How often have you had the time or the calmness of mind to really think about what you want in life. We will guide you through 8 main areas of your life, choosing one priority to work on in more detail. Go home with the tools in hand to put your goals into action!

 

One hour Balinese massage
The Balinese method of massage will have you spirited away releasing tension and stress as the skilful hands loosen muscles, ease pain and promote blood flow.
