Elevate Your Wellbeing: The Anne Sexton Pilates Retreat at Finca Monasterio, Sotogrande

Discover a transformative journey towards holistic wellness at the Anne Sexton Pilates Retreat, held at the breathtaking Finca Monasterio in Sotogrande. Led by renowned pilates practitioner Anne Sexton, this retreat promises an immersive experience that combines the power of Pilates, healthy eating, and fascia-focused movement to nourish both body and mind.

Central to this retreat is the promotion of healthy eating and gut-friendly foods, recognising the vital role they play in our overall well-being. A healthy gut is the cornerstone of optimal health, influencing various aspects of our physical and mental vitality. By consuming nutrient-dense, gut-friendly foods during the retreat, we can support the flourishing of our gut microbiome, aiding digestion, nutrient absorption, and bolstering our immune system. The Anne Sexton Pilates Retreat at Finca Monasterio takes pride in offering carefully curated meals and educational workshops that empower participants to make informed choices about their diet, fostering lasting habits that can be seamlessly integrated into their daily lives.

Moreover, this retreat places a strong emphasis on movement and the fascial system, recognizing its profound impact on our bodies. Fascia, the intricate connective tissue that envelops and supports our muscles, organs, and bones, plays a pivotal role in our overall physical well-being. Sedentary lifestyles, poor posture, and repetitive movements can cause fascial restrictions, leading to discomfort, limited range of motion, and diminished vitality. Through specialised Pilates exercises and fascia-focused movement practices, the Anne Sexton Pilates Retreat at Finca Monasterio aims to unlock and restore the fluidity of the fascial network, enabling participants to experience enhanced flexibility, improved alignment, and a renewed sense of physical well-being.


Now, let’s delve into the vital importance of a retreat like this for avoiding or recovering from everyday stress and burnout. In our fast-paced world, chronic stress has become a silent epidemic, wreaking havoc on our physical and mental well-being. The Anne Sexton Pilates Retreat offers a sanctuary of serenity, allowing you to escape the demands of everyday life and find solace in self-care. Engaging in Pilates exercises amidst the idyllic setting of Finca Monasterio provides a powerful outlet for releasing tension, reducing anxiety, and promoting a state of deep relaxation. By reconnecting with your body, focusing on your breath, and surrendering to the present moment, you will cultivate a sense of mindfulness and inner calm that will extend far beyond the retreat experience.


Furthermore, the Anne Sexton Pilates Retreat fosters a supportive and inclusive community, embracing individuals from all walks of life and levels of pilates practice. Whether you are a beginner seeking to establish a solid foundation or an advanced practitioner looking to refine your technique, this retreat offers a space for growth, exploration, and connection. Through group sessions, individualized guidance from experienced instructor Anne, and shared experiences, you will forge meaningful connections with like-minded individuals who share your passion for pilates and holistic wellness. This sense of camaraderie and support creates an empowering environment where you can challenge yourself, celebrate your achievements, and find inspiration in the collective journey.


In conclusion, the Anne Sexton Pilates Retreat at Finca Monasterio, Sotogrande, offers an unparalleled opportunity to elevate your physical and mental well-being. By embracing the principles of Pilates, nourishing your body with gut-friendly foods, and honouring the intricate nature of the fascial system, this retreat provides a comprehensive experience tailored to meet the diverse needs of all participants. Regardless of your level of Pilates expertise, this retreat invites you to ignite your inner strength, unlock your potential, and embark on a lifelong journey of holistic wellness.

We hope to see you there!

I attended a Pilates retreat at Tinakilly house hosted by Anne Sexton in January 2022. It was a very enjoyable weekend! The pilates classes along with the wellness talks and gorgeous lunch, dinner & breakfast were fantastic. I would highly recommend Annes classes and for anyone seeking a wellness retreat in Wicklow to get in touch with her.

The Pilates Retreat in Finca Monasteiro was such a great experience. It was a stunning hotel, with super healthy food and ImI met such lovely people. The Pilates was intensive but brilliantly taught by Anne in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Loved every minute and I would do it again. Thanks to all the team.
