We are delighted to welcome Leanda back, who will be hosting her second pilates course at Maison du Guit.

Leanda has been teaching dance and fitness for over thirty years, and pilates since 2007. Leanda founded Natural Pilates Norfolk, where she works alongside an osteopath. She uses the Stott Pilates method and combines traditional pilates with modern principles of exercise, science and rehabilitation.

Her friendly and relaxed courses are carefully designed to cater for people of all ages and fitness levels.

Each day at Maison du Guit Leanda will expertly lead two ninety minute sessions in our bright and spacious attic studio. These will be will be interspersed by one to one help and advice when requested.


When you are not exercising you will be offered delicious food, and plenty of rest and relaxation by the pool in our secluded sunny garden, which is surrounded by vineyards. For those who wish to explore Gascony we will arrange visits to delightful nearby towns, villages and markets. We will also visit the local Chateau for wine tasting and, for an extra charge, there maybe an opportunity to create your own special wine, by blending different grapes. If you would also like to have a restorative massage we can make a booking for you at nearby Natura Esthetique.
