Dive deep into your Pilates practice with Lesley Logan and walk through the temples of Angkor Wat at a quaint retreat center on a 6 day/5 night stay in Siem Reap, Cambodia, next November 4th through 9th, 2018. Our resort, located only 10 minutes from the temples, has 6 mini cottages, multiple places to practice Pilates and home cooked vegetarian/vegan meals while being tucked away from the business of the city. Bring your friend or partner, because there will be 2 people in each cottage.
If you prefer to stay in a hotel in Siem Reap, there is still a spot for you! Off-site retreaters enjoy all the activities listed below. You are responsible for finding your accommodations (however, I have plenty of tips for you), tuk-tuk rides to-and-from the retreat center and, should you want to participate in the daily yoga classes, they are $7/class. Your meals, Pilates, 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 enjoy private trips to secret spaces of Angkor (including seeing one of the only 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.
Along with tours of the Temples, we will be doing daily Pilates classes, and two Pilates workshops focused on honing your at-home Pilates practice. The retreat center also has regular yoga classes available to our group. There will be plenty of evening time to spend time by yourself or explore the beauty of Siem Reap each night after dinner.

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!
