If you're seeking a mind and body getaway that combines low-impact, yet energizing workouts, exciting activities, and free time to decompress in the sunshine, this trip has got it all! We're combining two of our favorite things: Pilates and the beach ("playa" in Spanish) for a welcoming and balanced retreat that is focused on letting go of our stress and enjoying the moment! Join us as we experience the Costa Rican culture- including nature, music and dancing the night away while feeling good.
Each day, Coach Jenna Muller will lead two classes to target the whole body with a focus on building a strong core. Morning classes will vary between Pilates and Jenna's signature 'Rock the Mat' cardio barre workout meant to get the heart rate up with minimal impact. In the evenings around sunset, our second class will be more restorative and core-focused, either a traditional Pilates mat class or a yoga-inspired stretching workshop. Appropriate for all levels!
There is so much to see and do in beautiful Costa Rica, and on this getaway we'll spend one afternoon visiting a neighboring beach for stand-up paddle boarding, a lot of fun and a great core workout! On another day, we will depart for a zip lining tour for an adrenaline rush and the most amazing views! These activities are included, but optional if you choose to sit out and do your own thing!
Each day will balance activities with free time to relax, reflect, or go explore on your own or with others. Our resort is right on the beach and also has a couple of pools (with a swim-up bar!) so free time is yours to cherish! Other ideas are to get a massage, sign up for an extra excursion, or visit the town for some shopping.
Highlights / What's Included
Meet Coach Jenna Muller
Jenna Muller is a born and bred New Yorker and a dancer at heart. She danced her first steps at the age of 3 and continued to dance throughout college at Hofstra University. Throughout her journey, she has studied various forms of dance including ballet, tap, jazz and modern. The pure joy of movement and performing ignited a life-long passion for dance and fitness.
After working in the corporate world for many years, she missed the daily mind-body connection dance offered. To re-connect, she became certified in Pilates and barre3, a 60 minute workout which fuses yoga, ballet, and Pilates. Today, fitness is an integral part of her daily life and she loves sharing her passion and knowledge with individuals of all ages and levels, with her own “Rock the Mat” workouts. And as new mom who taught throughout her entire pregnancy, she offers an array of pre and post-natal modifications and tips for those in need.
Check out her website at JennaMullerMovement.com and her classes at barre3 West Village, barre3 Livingston, and Equinox.
