A Pilates retreat to empower and inspire you. Anula's caring approach and unique teaching style will encourage, uplift and empower you.
In this retreat, each class will address the themes of self-acceptance and movement as preventative medicine. As we practice traditional Pilates we will also at times address the negative narrative that sometimes bubbles up during a workout. "I am not strong enough, flexible enough, thin enough" etc and delve into shifting the focus of our language to more positive self-talk. Classes will be challenging with a focus on what is possible vs what sometimes feels impossible. We will try to push the limits of what we think our abilities are and see if any surprises appear along the way. Plan to show up ready to delve deep into the Method of Pilates while making mindful choices on how to remain present, connected and less judgmental.
If you are a beginner this is an unmissable opportunity to really light your Pilates fire! For those who are already passionate about it, this week will be your chance to take your practice to the next level with a Master teacher who will challenge and inspire you.
About the instructor
Anula Maiberg is a citizen of the world, and take the method with her to empower and educate everywhere she goes. Originally from Israel, she moved to NYC in 2001 in order to pursue a career in photography.
While working on her degree she fell in love with Pilates through the classes and private sessions she took at Sixth Street Pilates.
Her Pilates journey eventually drew her away from her desk job, to attend the Kane School for Core Integration to become fully certified on Pilates apparatus. After a few years of teaching, she is now the co-owner (with Jeremy Laverdure) of Sixth Street Pilates where it all began.
Anula is also a graduate of the Kathy Grant Heritage Training led by Cara Reeser of Pilates Aligned in Denver.
