Contrology Retreat

2023 Costa Brava

July 8 - July 15


Joe Pilates' health philosophy encompassed so much more than 

exercise. Fresh air, sunshine, nutrition, dry brushing.... Every year he would leave his New York apartment to summer at his home in the Berkshires, saying it was essential for his health. This 7-day, Joe-approved retreat is designed to offer the perfect balance of restoration and adventure.
