Joanne Cobbe, Founder of The Pilates Retreat

I founded The Pilates Retreat after realising that I wanted to spend more time teaching people who are passionate about Pilates than my usual diary allows.

The retreats gives us well-deserved opportunities to focus on our own technique and movement, be pampered, try new things and to recharge in beautiful, relaxing environments.

The retreats are for anyone who loves Pilates, teachers and clients. Each session is designed to suit every ability. 

I absolutely love how people fall deeper in love with Pilates, find ways to move better, make new friends and relax.

I am so delighted that each retreat sees people book again the following year for another unforgettable time.

Joanne is also the founder of JPilates, the highest quality Pilates teacher training company in the UK.


Myself and another Pilates teacher friend joined Jo on her retreat in Tarifa, Spain earlier this year. I can honestly say it was one of the most fun weeks I’ve had in a long time! There was just the right ratio of classes and free time. The classes and clinics were fun and very informative!
The food was to die for, the weather was perfect and the Villa was unbelievable. I enjoyed it so much in fact, that I will be putting on my own retreat there! 
I came back brimming with ideas for my own classes and a reignited love for Pilates!
Jo... you are the Pilates queen and I hope I can join you on another retreat soon!
