The sun is climbing into the blue morning sky, as paradise welcomes you to your Pilates practice. The mats are rolled out and our experienced and warm teacher leads you through your empowering, bliss filled class on the deck, where fragrant, blooming flowers frame ocean vistas and your fellow Pilates retreat guests join you to discover the state of flow within your Pilates practice…
This week of pure Pilates fun and adventures will focus on the last of the 6 Pilates principals, Flow.
We will explore this bliss inducing principal and this amazing movement method through fun and challenging classes, informative and inspiring workshops and relaxed discussions (that take place over meals or with rejuvenating cups of tea in hand).
As we dive deeper into the Pilates method, Jamie will draw on his experience and guide us towards an improved practice, and a better understanding of how the Pilates system can make our lives easier, reduce stress and leave us invigorated, confident and ready to take on life!
Discover the true bliss of moving freely and mindfully through our Pilates practice, and how this in turn can become so much more than just movement, as it brings us into the present moment, more deeply connected to our selves and the community we share this with.
Be ready to sweat, smile and amaze yourself, on this Pilates retreat of a lifetime, under the guidance and care of an internationally respected master teacher.

About the instructor
Jamie believes in the power of movement to change the world. Really.
As surfer and lover of yoga, he fell head over heels with Pilates many years ago, and has been obsessed ever since.
Jamie feels that Mr Pilates’ quote “Change happens through movement, and movement heals” is just the beginning and with his warm, open and fun approach to teaching, has witnessed the power of Pilates change bodies and lives for the better for both himself and his students.
His belief that anything can be cured by the power of Pilates, community and the right blend of essential oils, has lead him to California, USA where he shares his love of Classical Pilates at his
Fluid Life Studio, as well as presenting workshops in studios and conferences across the globe. This year Jamie has been honored to present at the prestigious Pilates Method Alliance conference.
Jamie is the co-founder of Azulfit retreat, and a certified 2nd Generation Master Pilates Teacher.
Having studied with many incredible teachers, he has been blessed to be certified by Pilates Elder, Lolita San Miguel (who is 1 of only 2 people ever certified officially by Joe Pilates himself), and to be a Peak Pilates Teacher Trainer, as well as being featured in their Educational video library and manuals.
Above all, Jamie feels blessed to have stumbled upon this life changing method and loves nothing more than supporting others on their journey towards vibrant health… well, except playing with his awesome kids!
