From 8 to 14 November 2009, the COMO Shambhala Retreat at Parrot Cay will be hosting a seven-day, six-night restorative Pilates Retreat. This will be led by Parrot Cay’s popular and highly experienced resident Pilates specialist, Lynda Lippin, with the retreat open to all, including beginners.

The retreat’s theme will be ‘Strength Without Struggle’.

Lynda, who is widely respected for her nurturing style, has been practicing and teaching Pilates for over 20 years. She owned and operated award-winning Pilates studios in the US and trains Pilates teachers for the Pilates Physical Mind Institute. She is also an accomplished fitness trainer, certified by the American Council of Exercise.

Lynda will individually assess each participant in the first day of the retreat in order to understand specific areas of pain, tension, weakness, or disease in the body. Daily group sessions will be a blend of lecture, discussion and Pilates exercise focused on the major issues within the group. Subjects will include history of Pilates, basic structural anatomy, common injuries and tension patterns, posture, and exercise lessons.

Throughout the retreat week Lynda will also recommend specific COMO Shambhala treatments that will benefit each guest, whether it is a calming COMO Shambhala massage or Reiki session.

 Guests will be able to dine from a choice of Parrot Cay’s menus, including the healthy, yet delicious COMO Shambhala cuisine - all designed to complement the rounded physical, mental and spiritual experience.

The Pilates method helps to improve muscle control, endurance and correct posture while enhancing positive body awareness and body confidence. The technique, which improves and changes the body's alignment habits, has a flexibility that works for practitioners of all standards.

 Pilates is now growing in popularity with men as well as women. Physiotherapists are also now recommending Pilates, if it is correctly taught, as one of the safest forms of exercise available. Pilates can assist the super-fit, help people suffering from pain, restricted joint mobility or even people who are post surgery. It is also ideal for women seeking to get their bodies back after childbirth.

Prices for ‘Strength Without Struggle’ start at US$6,026 per person (single occupancy) and US$9,014 (double occupancy) including tax and service charge for six-night accommodation in a Garden Room, full American breakfast daily, lunch and dinner, round-trip airport transfers, 16 hours of group Pilates and one private evaluation session.
