Tracey Mallett, the international fitness expert, dancer, choreographer, and master Pilates instructor behind the popular bootybarre™ and bbarreless™ workouts, will be leading an exclusive Camp ÂME retreat April 21st through April 23rd at Turnberry Isle Miami.
Although this is Mallett’s first collaboration with the âme Spa and Wellness Collective, she is no stranger to retreats. She has organized and led gatherings in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and other destinations.
“Retreats are empowering experiences and there is nothing like community. Coming together can inspire people to make changes and ignite a journey for wellness,” says Mallett. “I love helping people unleash that power and intensity. I am looking forward to doing this in the beautiful setting that Turnberry Isle provides.”
Mallett sees these gatherings as opportunities for clients to immerse themselves in the unique bootybarre™ workout, which was inspired by her own passion for what she describes as “movement with meaning.”
bootybarre™ and bbarreless™ fuse techniques from dance, Pilates, and yoga that tone, define, and chisel the whole body. The methods, which utilize barre movements (sometimes with a barre or sometimes without one), promote strength and flexibility and offer a huge calorie burn – estimated at 600 calories per hour.
“I like to sweat and I like to move. I studied dance and theater in university in England and when first discovered Pilates it really resonated with me. It’s all about precise movement, control, and intent,” says Mallett. “From my perspective, it is the foundation to fitness. Integrating in other disciplines like dance and yoga make your workout more effective, interesting, and fun.”
Her methods have certainly resonated with many others too. Her workout DVDs have sold millions and there are now more than 8,000 bootybarre™ certified teachers getting people fit spas and fitness clubs around the world. That is a lot of movement with meaning and a lot of sweat.
The three-day retreat at Turnberry Isle will feature daily hour and a half classes with Mallett, spa treatments at the âme Spa, nutrition talks with Rezilir Health™ Nutritional Expert Marissa Ciorciari, M.S., R.D., L.D./N, C.L.T., and a discussion with Dr. James D. Stern M.D., F.A.C.S., of the Physician’s Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery on new non-invasive rejuvenation and plastic surgery techniques.
