Dive deep into your fitness practice with Chris and LL and walk through the temples of Angkor Wat and many other Temples at Lesley’s retreat space on a 6 day/5 night stay in Siem Reap, Cambodia, February 10th through 15th, 2019. Bring your friend or partner, because there will be 2 people in each room. We do have rates for travel partners who want the experience of travel and touring but not the workouts or workshops. Just ask!
If you prefer to stay in a hotel in Siem Reap there is still a spot for you. Off-site retreaters will enjoy all the activities listed below. You are responsible for finding your accommodations and tuk-tuk rides to/from the retreat center (We have plenty of tips for you) however, your meals, classes, workshops, and temple tours would be included!
This retreat is more than just a vacation halfway around the world; it’s a trip to the Center of the Universe. Angkor was once the largest kingdom in southeast Asia. The Temple Bayon is famous for being the Temple with four faces. In the highest tower (which we will be visiting) you will find yourself in the absolute center of what was the Khmer Empire, at the time considered the literal Center of the Universe. Our personal tour guide truly makes the trip an experience you will not forget.
Be prepared to not only see the Temples at their best time but to enjoy private trips to secret spaces of Angkor (including seeing one of the only original Buddhas left!) Also, don’t be surprised if you end up with pictures taken by our tour guide. She has an eye for the best pics for you to remember your trip so you don’t have to keep your camera out the whole time.
We will go off the beaten path to a pagoda and participate in offering lunch to the local monks. An incredible experience that words cannot express. This pagoda is home to almost 200 monks.
And, depending on her schedule, we will get a blessing from LL’s favorite nun, Gramma Ak. Last trip we were lucky to have her meet our group and bless each one of us in the jungle!
Along with tours of the Temples, we will be doing daily fitness classes and two workshops per day. It doesn’t matter your fitness level, every person leaves with new connections. Each person will gain a further understanding of their mental/functional strength abilities, and mindful movement abilities.
There will also be plenty of time to spend time by yourself to explore the beauty of Siem Reap each day and at night after dinner. Don’t be surprised if you end up making new friends among your retreaters and find yourself trying a bug or buying all your Holiday presents at the market!
There is only space for 20 guests taking workouts, but another 8 can join who aren’t taking classes on our retreat. We can host 8 on our property, the rest can stay next door or nearby. We will happily help you find a location so that you can still make it to class bright and early.

The Pilates retreat to Cambodia was incredible. The trip was an amazing opportunity to strengthen my knowledge and practice of Pilates, as well as experience the ancient temples of Siem Reap like a local. The yoga and meditation retreat was beautiful and tranquil and the vegetarian food was delicious. Lesley and Brad were incredibly hospitable and organized, and the schedule and pace of the retreat flowed seamlessly. I feel very fortunate to have been able to experience Cambodia in such an exciting and unique way.
This was one of the most rewarding and relaxing trips I’ve ever been on. I would highly recommend making this happen!
