The Pilates retreat will be lead by 2nd Generation Master Teacher, Jamie Isaac, founder of Azul Yoga & Pilates. Jamie received his Master Teacher certification from Lolita San Miguel, who was certified by Joseph Pilates himself. This means that Jamie has studied as close to the source as possible, which means authentic Pilates and some interesting and fun stories and details about the method.

Jamie has over 20 years experience and study of wellness and human movement, and has a real passion for teaching and improving the wellbeing of all. His unique fun, empowering and compassionate teaching style is gaining a reputation for getting results that take clients far beyond their goals, and the weekend promises to take your Pilates practice deeper.

The retreat will include separate classes for the more advanced and for those new to Pilates, and will also have additional classes for pain management. Jamie’s fun and challenging workshops are always a treat, and the luxury spa setting is a welcome escape to help you reconnect and feel energised before the winter sets in. The amazing setting, on the beautiful Cornish coast will allow you to disconnect. Enjoy a swim in the indoor heated pool between classes. Spend the day pampering at the spa – included in your retreat is a beautiful hydro spa, sauna and steam room. Relax in the tranquility lounge and read by the fire, whilst soaking up the coastal view. Enjoy a relaxing drink or lovely herbal tea by the poolside bar. This is a retreat where the weather doesn’t matter, from beach walks outside to the invigorating Pilates workshops, you will feel truly pampered and replenished in one short weekend with the energy to carry you through the winter.

About the instructor

Originally from the Isle of Wight, England, Jamie is passionate about Pilates. Jamie teaches internationally, most recently in the USA, England, Bali and Fuerteventura. He is a featured instructor at the Vitality Show in London, the OM Yoga Show in London and the Mind, Body Spirit Festival in Brighton.

As a former international trampolinist, flexibility and core stability conditioning programs were staples in his training regime. After his competitive career, Jamie continued his involvement in trampolining by using his knowledge and experience to coach others in their quest for success.

Jamie continued his study of core conditioning in university, following the natural progression on to the Pilates method.  Impressed by the effectiveness of the method, he went on to complete courses and workshops in the UK, Spain and the USA. He has followed his training all over the world, and has certified with first generation Pilates master Lolita San Miguel, as part of her elite master teacher program. He now holds the title of 2nd Generation Master Teacher.

Jamie practices and teaches Pilates as more than just a set of physical exercises. By incorporating body and mind he finds the classic Pilates method benefits all aspects of life – especially his other passion, surfing, which benefits massively from the improved focus, body awareness and core conditioning that Pilates brings.
Jamie enjoys passing on his knowledge of Pilates, helping others to relax and progress, and teaching in specialist areas such as injury rehabilitation, specialist referral and coaching other sports professionals and enthusiasts.

Jamie’s enthusiasm and down to earth, friendly manner help students get the most possible from each and every class – and have fun while they’re doing it!
