Smådalarö retreat – 14-15 October
On October 14th-15th, we invite you to join us at the exquisitely renovated Smådalarö Gård Hotel & SPA for a rejuvenating and inspiring Pilates training retreat, limited to just 12 participants.
All you will need to do is to secure your spot and let us take care of you!
The event is led by SPC & Remedy’s Amelie Parchami , Carita Lesche and Marianne Själander and will be packed with Pilates & Garuda training, relaxing sound healing and tranquil activities.
After our classes, we unwind at the private sauna down by the hotel’s jetty (and for those who want, maybe a dip in the sea) and of course at the hotel’s fantastic SPA, which is designed for relaxation and recovery – located in a natural environment where the boundaries between inside and outside seem to have been blurred.
The spa extends into nature with a beautiful park and several spa terraces, where you will find both sun beds, seating areas, outdoor shower, and a yoga/Pilates terrace. In the lovely hotel’s four pools, which are both outdoors and indoors, you can enjoy different experiences during all seasons of the year. Find your favorite among several different sauna rooms, archipelago showers, comfortable foot baths and relax with a good drink from the Spa bar in the spa lounge or in the peaceful and cozy fire room.
All rooms are in the newly renovated part of the hotel, and we will train and meditate indoors in the hotel’s Pilates studio, in the beautiful hall Werket, and if the weather allows outdoors on the terrace overlooking the sea.
Our trainers will explain and show the basics of Pilates and Garuda training and make sure that both beginners as well as the more experienced get the most out of the training classes.
Between our training classes and activities, we are served morning and afternoon coffee-smoothies, healthy snacks, and fruit.
We eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the relaxing atmosphere in the dining room, at the orangery next door, or if the weather allows at a table on the terrace or stone terrace overlooking the bay.
For those who want, there is the opportunity to pre-book SPA treatments and to extend their hotel stay.
In the surroundings around the hotel there are plenty of activities such as water sports, golf, tennis, paddle and the possibility of boat excursions to other beautiful archipelago islands such as Kymmendö, Ornö and Fjärdlång.
