Pilates Retreat



Plan Your Event at Florblanca Costa Rica


13 – 18 November 2023

Immerse yourself in a nourishing and rich Pilates retreat with Mav and Nadja at Florblanca in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica.

Mav and Nadja are experienced Pilates teachers, passionate about their craft and looking forward to welcoming you to the magical, boutique Florblanca Pilates studio on the beach. Both teachers found healing in Pilates and as a result they tailor their classes specific to each student’s particular needs. They both enjoy teaching smaller groups and Private classes specifically to give each person’s body the attention it needs. 

In addition to the personal attention you will receive in your Pilates classes, you will also feel the healing power of being surrounded by nature. Florblanca is located on the pristine beaches of the Nicoya Peninsula along the Pacific coast shore of Costa Rica and is a beacon of rustic luxury.  

Your experience will awaken all your senses. Moving daily in either of the two beautiful oceanfront Pilates studios as well as in the seaside open-air Shala, eating delicious meals at Nectar Restaurant which provides a truly hook to fork/ farm to table menu built around local, organic and seasonal ingredients, immersing yourself in relaxing and rejuvenating spa treatments at Spa Bambu and so much more.

In a time when we are all in need of peace, healing, and transformative experiences, come find a new rhythm with us.
