Heida Reed Testimonial'I went to Azulfit at a time in my life where I needed time to myself to reflect and heal. Their place was the perfect place to do that. It's beautiful, peaceful and the combination of Pilates, Reiki, massage, great company and delicious vegetarian food was just what I needed. I can't wait to go back!'

- Heida Reed (Star of Poldark)

Imagine feeling relaxed and supported as you start your day with a morning Pilates class on a beautiful outdoor deck overlooking the stunning pool with views to the ocean. This is what Pilates in paradise is like.
Immerse yourself in your Pilates practice and discover a love for the method to keep you motivated for life.
The week will include separate classes for the more advanced and for those new to Pilates, along with the usual warm Canarian sunshine, delicious vegetarian cuisine and stunning island beaches. We also have  many teachers who attend Jamie's retreats, to take time for their own practice and to study with Jamie.

By the end of the week you will…

You will feel inspired, confident, and excited about your own practice with a sense of renewed energy.

You will look leaner, healthier and more vibrant and youthful.

You will understand how the Pilates method will make your life easier.

We will learn how to perform exercises as designed by Mr Pilates, learn how to modify them for your own personal practice, to get the most benefit and zest from every movement.

You will experience the concept of movement as a meditation and see how the power of now can be discovered through Pilates.

There will definitely be time for relaxing with a book, sunbathing, or exploring the island.

About the instructor

Jamie Isaac

Jamie Isaac believes in the power of mindful movement to change the world. Really.

As a surfer, yoga lover and Classical Pilates aficionado, Jamie founded Azulfit, Yoga & Pilates Retreats & Fluid Art Pilates Studio to share his passion with those who are ready to take their next conscious step toward vibrant health. Changing the world takes energy, clarity and inspiration, and Jamie makes sure his students have more than they need so they can be a shining example to others of what is possible.

Jamie is a 2nd Generation Master Pilates teacher and one of the world's first Pilates retreat teachers. At his studio in California, and through workshops and retreats across the globe, Jamie loves nothing more than supporting and celebrating the transformations of his students… except maybe playing with his awesome kids.

Jamie feels gratitude for all the inspirational teachers he has learned from. From exploring a deeper side to mindful movement, in Santa Fe, with Celia Hulton, Ray Kurshals, & Michele Larsson, to developing a compassionate and authentic approach to delivering the method, with Zoey Trap.

Invited to study with Lolita San Miguel (who trained with Joe Pilates himself), Jamie is honored to be certified by her, as a Master Teacher.

Jamie’s enthusiasm and down to earth, friendly manner help students get the most possible from each and every class – and have fun while they’re doing it!

As an eternal student passionate about the method, the adventure continues and Jamie is really excited to share that with you.


The Surya Retreat is perfectly placed for relaxation and respite.

Between classes you can relax on site at our beautiful pool or soak your muscles in our luxury jacuzzi. Take a walk on one of the local beaches, or explore the beautiful sights of the island.
