Treat yourself to a private water pilates class in the serene bamboo zen garden of the Amala, a peaceful holistic resort. Working one-on-one with an expert instructor, work through a series of movements designed to strengthen and stretch, all in the low-impact environment of a pool.
Make your way to the Amala and slip into the pool as you chat with your instructor about your fitness level and goals. A pool is the perfect place to practice pilates, offering gentle resistance for strength-building plus supportive buoyancy for those suffering from back or joint pain or for pregnant women.
Let your instructor guide you through a full-body, core-stabilizing workout in the water, working each muscle group in turn and feeling yourself grow more limber and aware of your body as the hour goes by. After your class, you can continue to lounge by the pool, continuing to practice some of your newly learned exercises or just soaking up the peace and quiet of the garden.
