Haley found Pilates nearly a decade ago while living in Texas. She immediately fell in love with it after noticing changes in her body after only three lessons. Back home in Madison Wisconsin, she found and enrolled in the Midwest Pilates Institute instructor-training program. After receiving her certificate, she went on to teach at multiple locations throughout Madison and the surrounding area. She is now the lead instructor for Club Pilates in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. Her goal as a Pilates enthusiast and instructor is to help people learn how to strengthen and move their bodies in a safe and sustainable way.

Pilates is an effective way to work the body to its proper limits and gain strength without too much heavy lifting or big movements. Clients say, “I feel taller, more open yet stronger.” after their lesson. Pilates is very complementary to other workout regiments and helps keep the body working more uniformly as a whole. It’s up to everyone to give him or herself a healthy life. Pilates is a great way to invest in oneself. No matter what ailments you may have, Pilates practice will help you gain and maintain stability, mobility, and strength throughout your body.

Listening to the universe led me to follow my passion for travel and wellness, by opening a travel agency, working at a Pilates studio and obtaining my Pilates teaching certification. I also believe the universe led me to Haley, an awesome mentor, and friend that decided to take a leap of faith and said “YES” when I asked her to lead this Pilates retreat.

I ask you to take the leap and say “YES” to this retreat, let me tell you why…

We practice what we preach and passionately pursue a lifestyle that keeps us well and active and has a heck of a lot of fun doing it.
Because life should be lived to its absolute fullest – and that’s not just lip service. That’s our life’s work, and for us, Pilates and Travel is the medium.
Costa Rica thrives on “Pura Vida” and compliments all that Pilates does for the body and this retreat will do the same for your soul!
