WEEKEND COUNTRY RETREAT
     1.5 hr drive from Rome at Agriturismo Le Belle Rane
Our weekend retreat program includes daily Pilates and the New York City Ballet Workout, Massage and/or Cranio Sacral Therapy and a special guest instructor to be announced (Tai Chi, Shaman, vocal coach etc). Agriturismo Le Belle Rane is located amongst the hills and valleys of the Sabine countryside offering a quiet and tranquil setting with a large outdoor pool and sun deck. The location is ideal for spending your free time hiking, R&R and visiting the surrounding areas.

I will be instructing both the classical Pilates and Ballet Workout classes, the classes will be open to all fitness levels and even if you have never tried either of these activities this will be a good opportunity to experience these methods. Pilates strengthens and stretches the major muscles, develops your core (the band of muscles below your chest), and teaches you mind body control. The Ballet Workout aims to strengthen and sculpt the body, to improve coordination, develop poise, promote good posture, and improve balance by using the fundamental movements done at the ballet barre. Sarah Cornish a certified massage therapist will be offering Massage and Cranio Sacral Therapy treatments.
