You'd be hard-pressed to find a more spectacular setting than Amangani
for a three-night Pilates retreat. Surrounded by the magnificent peaks of Grand Teton National Park, the award-winning resort is perched on a butte 7,000 feet above sea level. Pilates guru Alycea Ungaro, the founder and director of RealPilates
(whose pupils have included Madonna and Uma Thurman), returns to Amangani
from May 14-17, 2008 with a brand new retreat based on her new book and DVD set, Everyday Pilates
. Ungaro will lead participants through a variety of exercises during the one-hour daily pilates sessions which are geared towards both the novice and advanced student. Learn the fundamental principles of pilates and how they apply to daily life, perform four unique routines for a comprehensive wellness regimen, establish modifications to tailor personal routines, and learn the optimal breathing sequence. The three-night retreat includes accommodation, daily breakfast, airport transfers, and three days of 60-minute Pilates instruction. Priced from $2,100 for a Suite (single/double occupancy, one participant), and $2,525 for a Suite (double occupancy, two participants).
