COMPETITION - Lucky reader to win top weekend retreat

Malvern Editorial 30th Oct, 2014 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016   0

THE OBSERVER has teamed up with the Brighton Pilates Studio to offer one lucky reader a fantastic weekend retreat.

The winner of the competition will get a fully paid package on the experience at Hellens Manor in Ledbury from November 7 to 9.

Six classes comprised of pilates and garuda will be in store for those attending as well as delicious health organic vegetarian food, walks in the ground and plenty of rest.

There will be a tour of Hellens Manor and on Saturday evening Prosecco and pudding will be served in the music room by a roaring fire. Myofascial release treatments will also be available as an optional extra.

Ana Barretxeguren from the Brighton Pilates Studio said: “The retreat idea came about as part of a plan to get away and spend a bit more time together.

“This weekend away is a chance to hide away in a magical space, spend some extra time exploring movement, going for peaceful walks and resting.

Ana is one of a renowned trio of movement teachers and therapists along with Hannah Watkins and Tansy Blaik-Kelly, who all say more people are now exploring a deeper understanding of mind and body.

Hannah said: “In the busy world in which we live people are stressed and running on adrenalin a lot of the time, and often not much else.

“Taking time to connect back with yourself and becoming aware of how you are feeling is key to creating a happier, healthier you.

“And at the heart of this is taking time to breathe. It sounds so simple but it’s the most basic human survival function, and we do it for a reason.”

To be in with a chance of winning the prize worth over £1,000, simply answer the following question:
