Your Wellness Retreat Qualified Pilates Instructor – Lucy Kewley

We are excited to introduce Lucy Kewley, who will be hosting the Wellness Retreat along with our amazing team at Umngazi Hotel & Spa.

The words that come to mind to describe Lucy are active, adventurous, energetic, passionate, fun and engaging.  Anyone who has met her with agree wholeheartedly.

Lucy is a Pilates Instructor who brings her own passion, knowledge and love to her teaching.  She believes Pilates can and should be part of EVERYONES life and when you have spent some time with her, you will understand why.

She describes herself as a pretty ordinary ‘plain Jane’ who is happy as long as she is exercising, eating healthy food and surrounded by like-minded people.

Lucy qualified as BASI Pilates Instructor in 2015 and has taught in studios in South African and Dubai where she lived with her husband and 2 children for 3 years.  She currently lives in Ballito and has her own studio.

She has completed 2 half iron man events; numerous mountain bike races and running is a big part of her life.  It was when she was injured from running that she found Pilates and that’s where everything changed!

Lucy is very excited about working with us to bring you a retreat you will treasure in your memory forever.
