Ever since Mobilates moved classes online, members have relished every opportunity

to get together and meet in real life!!

We've had a few casual gatherings, and now retreats throughout the UK are a regular part of what Mobilates offers. You will take part in gentle, accessible activities, enjoy the chance to meet local people living with chronic health conditions and mobility issues, and learn techniques to support you on an ongoing basis, indulge in wholesome locally sourced food and take some time out for your body and mind.

Read our feedback from recent retreats: 

"Thank you all for a wonderful day yesterday, it’s given me such a boost and I’m going to work out a way of fitting live classes back into my routine once the summer holidays are over." (Emily)


"What an absolutely awesome day.

Thank you to everyone for such a wonderful experience of calm and relaxation. 

Thank you for organising such fabulous food, the salads were so lovely, very pleased I brought my box to take some home with me. It was a lovely spread and clearly catered for both my vegan and gluten free requirements. It was labelled very clearly and even the smallest details of appropriate sauces had been thought about too. Such lovely food that topped off such an amazing day. Xx" (Libby)


"Thank you for a wonderful day.

It was so lovely to meet some of the faces you get to see in your classes. 
Such a pleasure to me you Leanne and Kerry after all the support you give during classes,

such lovely ladies." (Sam)


"Put your hand up if you went to bed when you got home and only woke up for dinner over an hour later.... 
Just me? 😅
I wanted to say thank you to everyone who came today.  I was so anxious this morning about spending any length of time in one room with so many people I'd never met in person (I mean, the full sweating/heart pounding type of anxiety!)
I told myself that I only had to stay for an hour... then until lunchtime... then until we left the hall... Then suddenly I was in a wonderful garden eating gorgeous cake!
I can't remember the last time I was ever that chilled out about being around so many new people and I'm still processing all of it tbh.
I hope all of you had a lovely day as well, and that you managed to get to your next destinations safely. And I'll share a saying that came back to me for the first time in years and has really struck a chord with me today:
"I'd rather regret the things I've done than the things I haven't" 😉" (Sharon


"It was such a lovely day sharing our love of Pilates with people we’d only seen online before.

A wonderful day with wonderful people. Here’s to the next ‘event’ and a chance to meet you all again x" (Sue)

"A nurturing and fun day 💜💜💜" (Sophie)
