    About the weekend

    A weekend away with your friends doing Pilates and reconnecting with nature? We can't imagine anything better! 

    This year at our 3rd annual event, we have THREE amazing Pilates teachers hosting 4 classes over the weekend. In addition, we have a special guest by the name of Asja Harris, a nutrition and wellness coach. Asja will be hosting 2 sessions for us. 

    Not only will you get to unplug in this remote setting only minutes away from Greater Vancouver, but you will get to learn some new skills from some of Vancouver's best teachers, make some new friends and just be yourself for a couple of days away from it all.
