About this trip

 "Awakening The Goddess Within"

Join Pilates Instructor Amy DeLong-Martin and Artist Jennifer Lothrigel for our 4th annual Pilates and Wellness retreat! 

Together, we will engage in art-making, storytelling, and movement exploration to discover and embody each of our unique inner Goddesses. Men are welcome to come and find a connection to their inner Goddess too! 

The inner Goddess expresses herself differently in each of us.  Some of the attributes she brings to our lives are: a healthy sense of self worth and confidence, a physical glow, a sense of being at home in our bodies, a commitment to our well-being, and so much more!  

With the beautiful surroundings at the Gassho House, one can walk through the redwoods, take a dip in the pool, and find yourself nurtured and refreshed with new friendships and experiences to take home with you.   

We will hold a gentle space for all that we discover and have fun doing so!  

No previous experience necessary

We are an all inclusive retreat! You come with your life experience to share, and that is all we ask.  Movement and Art backgrounds will vary!

If you want to discuss any injuries or limitations with Amy before the retreat please email admpilates@gmail.com and she will be happy to discuss them with you.

ADM Pilates
Amy’s studies in movement started at a young age when she fell in love with dance. She received her BFA in Dance from the University of Arizona and then moved to NYC to dance professionally. During her years following school she also studied Martial Arts, Body Mind Centering and Yoga. As a professional dancer and teacher, Amy often found that her body was in pain, and desired more education and tools to help keep her injury free. Pilates was the obvious choice and since 2009 Amy’s been sharing her knowledge with all kinds of movers.
