About the retreat:


This retreat is designed to ground, realign and recentre. The classes are inspired and shaped by the natural environment around us, with elements of intensity and relaxation. Located in the Pacific coastal hills of Nicaragua, the retreat draws power from the ocean and jungle surrounding it. With time to drift off into your own corner of the library, in one of the many white hammocks that dot the propriety, or on a solo hike or beach walk, there is also a strong emphasis on community. We hope you walk away having made connections with other like-minded individuals over dinner, and stories to last a life time.

 

About Maderas Village:


What began as a quest to create a place for like-minded individuals to congregate, has evolved into an idyllic boutique resort just off the beaten path in the Pacific coastal hills of Nicaragua.

Inspired by the natural world around us, the boutique resort has endeavored to be as responsible and environmentally sensitive in the operations of the Village as possible.

It really is the perfect match for Body Mason so we're elated to announce that Maderas Village will be hosting us for the retreat.

When I saw those wooden writing tables, those colorful hammocks, everything light and airy, when I felt that warm breeze with a faint smell of the ocean below us, I envisioned setting up shop and writing the next great novel there.

Emma-Kate Millar
Owner of Body Mason

Emma Kate, owner and founder of Body Mason, can't wait to bring all of her extensive experience and the Body Mason approach to her classes in Honduras, geared specifically for this retreat. She is excited to be bringing elements of movement, mindfulness and self-care to this retreat. To balance out the excitement of each day’s activities, she has developed a special program to leave you feeling rejuvenated at the end of the week.

Emma was inspired after her experience attending a Pilates retreat in Colombia. She came back freshly motivated, rested and invigorated. Looking around the Pilates community of Toronto, she realized that there was a lack of services for Pilates Retreats in Canada. Since then she has taught her first ever Body Mason Pilates Retreat in Honduras in February of 2018. She can't wait to share her many experiences with our Body Mason community.
