    "I could say so much about the week, I don’t know where to begin. I really loved the balance between yoga and Pilates. I was looking for an introduction to Pilates, and ideally in a way I could combine it with my existing yoga practice, and I got exactly that. I would be delighted to be able to join you both on a future retreat, be it Turkey or elsewhere. "

    "Loved the Pilates Retreat with Mareile in Koh Samui. It was very relaxing, amazing food, beautiful location, lovely people and good accommodation. It was the perfect week away to unwind. Would highly recommend it!"

    "I thought the retreat was really well-planned and executed. When I signed up, I wasnt sure what to expect since Ive never done anything like this. But I thought the schedule for the day (balance of pilates and time off) worked really well and I loved the flexibility. I was particularly appreciate of the way you opened your home to us inviting me to the beach that first day I was there, having us over to dinner, etc. That was so sweet of you and really added to the feeling of connectedness that I thought was present throughout the retreat."

    "I have been on several different retreats before. Pilates Retreat Asia exceeded my expectations as it was a holistic and private retreat with authentic care for mind, body and soul in a wonderful secluded, inspiring setting. In particular the authentic, personal and professional care from Mareile during the Pilates sessions and beyond made this an extraordinary experience."

The instructors were incredibly hands-on, and the location exquisite. I cant wait for the chance to sign up for another retreat!"

    "I just have to compliment you on how you managed to put together such amazing instructors that complimented each other so well. Having Tash and Casey as our leaders in making our bodies move the way they did made the retreat such an incredible experience for me. Words cannot explain, the emotions that were stirred up, the feeling of freedom, the feeling of accomplishment and being surrounded with the most special girls and environment."

    "Kamalaya itself is wonderful and stunning. The combination with functional exercise and Pilates meant that the entire trip was a great balance between food, relaxation, physical exercise, enrichment of the spirit and rejuvenation of the soul. Thanks so much Mareile. Hope to do it again next year!"

    "My best single memory of your retreat week at Kamalaya? I have more than one for sure! Two that pop in my head right away are: Swimming in the ocean with Andrew and Thilo and almost getting caught up in the middle of a storm! And, the dinner on the beach with the whole group! That was amazing!"
