~ Friday 11th November to Monday 14th November 2022 ~

Welcome to our new Maia Well Co. Retreat Home.

It’s time to put your feet up and let us look after you, nourish you, move with you and invite you along to our beautiful and welcoming retreat haven where you can truly switch off, relax and unwind. 

Set in 500 acres of countryside beauty and resurrected from old 18th century barns by award-winning design house, you’ll be welcomed to our very special Maia Well Co. retreat home, with panoramic studio views of the Cotswold hills, a heated glass surrounded indoor pool and a cosy home furnished with an eclectic mixture of furnishings and Scandi design, creating a feel of faraway travel, farmhouse chic and modern luxury. Expect brass candlesticks holding tall tapered candles, Moroccan tiles laying underfoot, dried homemade floral decor, exposed Cotswold stone walls adorned with tapestries and abstract art and individually designed bedrooms, some with freestanding bathtubs. All bedrooms have cloud like luxury linen and underfloor heating in all the bathrooms to keep you cosy and warm throughout your stay with our much loved Bamford toiletries throughout the house, too.

We will be running one 4 night mid-week retreat between Monday 7th (from 7.30pm arrival) – Friday 11th November (morning check-out). 

We will be running one 3 night weekend retreat between Friday 11th November (11am arrival) – Monday 14th November (morning check-out). 

You are welcome to choose the dates that suit you best.

We absolutely cannot wait to welcome you!

Join us in November 2022 for a cosy wintery getaway to restore and nourish yourself from the inside out. We’ve created a thoughtfully curated and well balanced schedule of daily movement practices, local walks, facial treatments, cooking workshops, plant based food, mindful candle / flower making and plenty of relaxation time! All of this from the comfort of your very own peaceful and picturesque Cotswolds holiday home.

The Practice

We will be offering a mindfully created schedule of movement practices throughout your stay.

You can expect daily feel good dynamic Pilates classes led by Zoe-Maia to start your day, designed to sculpt, lengthen and energise. In the evenings, we’ll wind down with candlelit restorative sessions, to calm the mind, stretch out the body and promote restful sleep throughout the retreat.

All practices are suitable for all levels and modifications will be provided.

Zoe-Maia is the founder of Maia Well Co., a qualified Holistic Health Coach, experienced Retreat Host and Classical & Contemporary Pilates instructor. 

She began to study Pilates after years of falling in love with the practice and learning first hand of its significant benefits to both the mind and body, following years of burn-out during her previous career in the corporate world. After over a thousand hours of teaching experience, Zoe’s classes are designed with both physical and mental wellbeing in mind, using conscious dynamic Pilates exercises which focus upon developing core strength, lengthening and toning all muscles to promote improved posture, balance and alignment, whilst using conscious breath-work to facilitate movement, calm the mind and improve flexibility.


Plant Based Food

Nourishing, sustainably sourced and delicious plant based food is at the heart of all our retreats.

Our wonderfully talented plant based chef Lauren Lovatt, the founder of Plant Academy and author of Mind Food (a cookbook with plant based recipes for positive mental health), will be cooking three delicious meals per day using seasonal, wholesome and fresh ingredients, sourced from local suppliers and farmers in the Cotswolds, full of flavour, health and vibrancy. All food is homemade and made fresh on each day of the retreat.

For breakfast on winter retreats, we love to make homemade British rose chia with windfall fruits, warming porridge or bircher, crunchy nutty granolas, fresh fruit, smoked tomato waffles with heirloom kale, healthy GF pancakes & more. For lunches and dinners, you can expect wholesome & vibrant roasted vegetable creations such as harissa roasted cauliflower with smoked butterbean dips, coal roasted aubergine with carrot top pesto & red pepper hummus, wild nettle & winter squash curry with black rice & garlic raita, courgette fillets with kombucha chimichurri & candied pecans, seasonal salads with kolrabi & miso slaw, sweet & sour pumpkin & oxfordshire leaves, chickpea tartlets with beetroot, blackcurrant & wilted greens… and lots more!

Dietary requirements will always be catered for.

Feedback from our Retreat Guests

“I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for such a wonderful retreat experience and for everything that you did to make us all feel so welcome. You designed such an incredible few days and curated everything with such impeccable attention to detail. The place was absolutely gorgeous, the food was delicious and the classes were such a joy. Your retreats were actually something that I’d put on my manifesting list a few years ago, so to be able to join was truly such a blessing. Really look forward to hearing about the next ones!”

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for this week. The retreat was amazing! You put together a fabulous team, great itinerary and what a fantastic venue! I’ve really enjoyed real life classes again, too. I’ve felt thoroughly spoilt and have come home relaxed, refreshed and thoroughly recharged and can’t wait for the next one!”

“A massive thank you for such a delightful retreat. It all flowed so smoothly, gorgeous surroundings, wonderful food and fabulous pilates, yoga and treatments. The icing on the plant based cake was meeting such a lovely group of people and feeling so refreshed and full of life afterwards. Zoe, what an outstanding act you are – just brilliant. Much love and can’t wait until the next one.”
