Gloucestershire’s Hillside Brewery has created a Beer Pilates Retreat, aimed an businesses in search of a unique team-building experience.
The day-long retreats revolve around a beer pilates workout, created specifically for the brewery by local Pilates expert, Samantha Lewis.
Brewery director, Paul Williamson, said: “No one likes the awkwardness of forced team building if they’re really honest, so we wanted to put a new kind of corporate retreat together that encourages bonding with a whole lot more fun thrown in.
“Everyone loves to unwind with a beer or two, so we thought we’d maximise the relaxation stakes by offering a retreat that combines our craft ales with an expert-led Pilates session, actually incorporating beer sampling into well-known Pilates moves.
“Anyone taking part needs simply to don their comfiest exercise gear, get into position and enjoy an invigorating Pilates session whilst sipping their favourite Hillside beer — alternating sips with water to maintain hydration levels, of course!”
Samantha said: “Pilates is all about controlled movements to improve strength, definition and flexibility, so what better way to increase the challenge than by having to look after a bottle of beer whilst you work?
“We’ve created a Pilates programme suitable for all fitness levels and capabilities to ensure that everyone can take part, incorporating a beer bottle into a variety of well-known and new moves to allow everyone to enjoy a swig whilst they stretch. Water will, of course, be on hand, too, keeping hydration levels topped up at all times.”
