What guests are saying!

The retreat was inspirational for the mind and body. The combination of the Pilates and Yoga strengthened and expanded my practices. The facility was beautiful, the food delicious, and the exercise room with the gorgeous view of the ocean and the sounds of the crashing waves added to the wonder of the retreat.  Every workout session was well planned out and built upon the prior one so I left feeling empowered and strong in my body. A total delight and I cannot wait for next year.

... an amazing opportunity for their clients to explore pilates and yoga in such a supportive, aware, beautiful, and conscious environment. Lila is so focused, sure, and confident in her instruction. She also is quick to target someone’s specific needs and offers growth and encouragement without any stress attached. The retreat is fun, challenging, gratifying, purposeful, balanced, memorable, and pretty unique I think. Thank you!

I had a great time -- thanks!
By Roseanne Chambers for Retreat to The Farm on Oct. 09, 2018
We had a wonderful time! There was a nice balance between the pilates and yoga sessions and free time (leaving us time to explore the coastal towns and relax). The retreat center was beautiful and the staff was attentive and helpful. We will absolutely go on future retreats with Lila!

My limited vocabulary does not allow me to describe how great this trip was. Accommodations were very comfortable, the food was wonderful but the pilates and yoga sessions were off the charts. The staff of Monte Velho deserves special mention as their courtesy and friendliness is genuine and sincere (shout out to Ariadna). Didn't want to leave.
