For many Paarl residents and Capetonians, Spice Route Destination is an ideal breakaway spot offering an on-foot excursion of different sensory and aesthetic experiences. While the Destination’s meandering pathways provide a scenic walking adventure, its new Pilates for Life studio adds a refreshing twist to its range of restaurants, tastings and retail offerings.
From its official opening on Thursday 1 February, Pilates for Life will be providing a premier studio facility offering classic and modern Pilates methods at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.
“We’re excited at the prospect of introducing our classes at a Winelands venue that also boasts panoramic views of mountains, vineyards and indigenous flora,” says Colette de Vries, studio owner and Pilates instructor. “It’s the perfect setting where a sense of tranquility can easily be appreciated, and where we can help individuals de-stress, and break away from everyday demands and hassles.”
Private (single, duet or trio) and group classes involve specialised Pilates equipment provided on-site. These include exercise mats, Reformers (gliding platforms kitted with straps and springs to aid various exercises), Cadillacs (table-shaped apparatus to help increase the effectiveness of Pilates stretches), Wunda chairs (equipment to help core strength and balance) and spine correctors. Members can also look forward to a mix of Pilates styles including Adult Ballet classes as well as yoga.
The Pilates classes take place on weekdays and promise to help build up a healthy appetite, making the studio’s location apt for a post-workout meal, snack or juice at one of Spice Route Destination’s restaurants!
New members can enjoy discounted offerings and the first class is free.
Spice Route Destination is situated on Suid-Agter Paarl Road, and a mere 40 to 60-minute drive from Cape Town.
