Wellness Foundation chooses the breathtaking Quinta Mimosa as setting to this retreat. This is a perfect spot for yoga and relaxation, providing guests from a place removed from the quick pace of normal life, but still close to beaches and other attractions. Still guests can choose to stay surrounded by the beauty of the area while lounging next to the pool.

Mark Thomas has created a weeklong program designed to introduce attendees to the ways in which the right combination of yoga and Pilates can lead to a fuller, healthier, happier, and longer life. The positions and movements tone, strengthen, and align core stabilizing muscles. People rehabilitating from pre or postnatal stress, back and postural problems or simply looking to enhance their quality of life and performance will find these sessions ideal.

    "Mark is AWESOME, the classes are AWESOME and you feel AWESOME. If you really get in to it and you continue to work on yourself, this becomes not just a session you do so many times a week, it becomes a way of life. Remembering "one chin" "switch on your girdle" and to "keep tall", you begin to do it automatically - "intelligent programming from within!" I would recommend Mark to anyone - no matter your age, fitness level or experience, if anything it makes taking care of yourself fun. Thanks for everything Mark you've been awesome!!"

    "Mark is a fabulous pilates teacher. I have attended his classes for over 12 years and through two pregnancies. He is brilliant for beginners through to advanced and for all ages. He is clear, precise, very knowledgable and all this is delivered with a healthy dash of uplifting humour. After each class I feel that my physical, mental and spiritual well being has been exercised in a really positive manner. He is an exceptional pilates instructor and that is the reason I have attended his classes for over 12 years."

    "Attending Mark's Yoga classes for nearly a month now… the BEST yoga class I have ever been to. Always tried yoga classes at the gym etc. for about 3 GBP and never felt the benefit always left at the back of a class of about 30 and no help or guidance given… However with Mark's class I walk out feeling amazing and distressed, already feeling the difference. Mark corrects you when wrong and always give advice and guidance for general health and well being. Well worth the money and won't waste my time with other yoga classes…. Very very happy customer!"

    "I attend Mark's Pilates class and I am more than satisfied with his tuition. He is calm, patient, amusing, and helpful; giving everyone different options relating to their ability. He offers advice on injuries and gives instruction on what to do and what not to do in the session. I would highly recommend this class."

    "I began Pilates about seven years ago, following a back operation. Pilates was recommended by the hospital physiotherapist in order to strengthen muscles to support my spine. Attending Pilates has proved to be successful in significantly reducing back pain. Mark aims to meet the needs of all who attend whether they are beginners or experts in their practice. The sessions are delivered with humor in a calm, positive, and encouraging manner. I would highly recommend Pilates as it has certainly helped me."

    "I have been going to Mark's Pilates classes for over three years now and they have made such a difference to my whole life, not just physically but mentally and spiritually, too. The classes are challenging, invigorating, and relaxing. I always come away feeling relaxed, calm, and refreshed. I cannot recommend Mark highly enough as an instructor; he is very attentive and tailors classes to the needs of the attendees. His classes are both challenging and great fun. Thank you, Mark. "

    "I have attended Mark's yoga and Pilates classes for about seven years and would recommend then to everyone. He takes a personal interest in everyone and helps those with specific problems or injuries. Not only that his classes are designed for building core strength and inner well-being. After attending a class, I feel mentally and physically recharged or, in Mark's words, awesome."

    "I have valued Mark's classes for years and know the high standard of practice and expertise that he imparts. Mark is a fantastic motivator and can push you beyond your usual limits. After sustaining two major injuries, I have felt save and supported by Mark, and appreciate his knowledge, advice, and encouragement to heal and recover. "
