Upcoming Retreats


Pilates Retreat with Ruth 14-20th May 2023

Pilates and Yoga Retreat with Najia Bagi 21 – 27th May 2023


The Stacci resort is our home for the week, in beautiful south-east of Sicily in the Archaeological Park of Cava Ispica, near the ancient town of Modica. A renovated old farmhouse that has been transformed into a sustainable, luxury resort featuring local, natural materials and all entirely self-fuelled with the solar-heating system. We have the whole venue to ourselves and it’s a really peaceful, rural location. 

The nearest airport is Catania and there are direct flights from London airports, Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds and Edinburgh, 
What’s included in the retreat?
  • 6 nights at the luxurious retreat location
  • All meals and refreshments provided (a healthy and nourishing but filling (!) brunch made by professional holistic chef Nicola Orr, evening meals and snacks and drinks throughout the day)
  • Two Pilates classes (week one) or one Pilates class and one dynamic yoga class (week 2) each day from STOTT Pilates teacher Ruth Tongue and yoga teacher Najia Bagi (Najia will be teaching a mix of vinyasa flow, yin and hatha yoga – all with her unique cool style and a killer playlist!)
  • Transfers from and to the airport *if booked on the suggested flights
  • Local Sicilian dinner and/or wine tasting on the final night
  • One 60 minute massage 
*Early bird booking discount before 31st January 2023 – 5% off all booking

"Ruth's retreats are a perfect opportunity to spend time with someone special in gorgeous surroundings. Being away from all the busyness of everyday life means you get plenty of time to catch up and re-charge and spend quality Mother/Daughter time together"
"It was just so nice to be away on holiday doing things that seemed “normal” after such a long time of not being able to. Relaxing and enjoying great Pilates twice a day was so nice. Meeting new people and some that I already knew and hadn’t seen for a while. The accommodation was excellent and food was amazing. Altogether it was just perfect!"
