Hollie Turner

Physiotherapist & Pilates Instructor
Founder of HTPilatesPlus
Thinking about joining me at an HTPilatesPlus Retreat?

This is Your VIP Invite To Spend 2 Days With Hollie At Peel Forest Luxury Lodge 

“Are You Ready to Reactivate Your Core, Refocus Your Mind and Reconnect with Your Body?...
So you can move freely with strength and confidence AND feel re-energized & rejuvenated in your body and mind.”

If you’d like to take time out to reconnect your body and mind for 2021 and start the year with a strong core and a sense of focus and calm… Then this is going to be the most important retreat that you attend this year. 

Now I know that every woman loves a good bit of pampering, fine food and the occasional dose of exercise 😉 but that you also have a keen mind and the desire to understand your body and what it needs to function well… 
which is why this retreat is geared with you in mind and has a combination of both practical teaching and Pilates 
(alongside relaxation, YOU TIME… and did I mention the open air spa? 🤗).

Over the 2 days you’ll learn how to find and activate muscles you may have long forgotten and learn how to breathe well again through our workshops and Pilates sessions.  Your mind will be equipped for calm through our mindfulness teaching and the practice of relaxation so that you can reset your thinking amidst the busyness of your daily lives.  

There will be time for connection with other women or refreshing time out for yourself to reflect and relax in the beautiful surrounds of the lodge or the greater Peel Forest area where rainforest and walking tracks abound.

You can expect to leave the retreat feeling refreshed, restored and re-energized but also equipped and empowered to keep your body and mind on track and healthy for the year ahead.

After working with many women over my 20+ years of experience as a Physiotherapist and through coaching Pilates for the past 8 years I have seen how powerful this combination of knowledge and practice has been in transforming the lives of women and that’s why I know it can for you too! 

Make this retreat your defining moment of 2021 and start your year "Strong from the Inside Out" with HTPilatesPlus.

I can't wait to see you there! :)

Meet Your Coaching Team....

Hollie Turner 
Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor

Hollie has worked as a Physiotherapist for 20+ years in multiple rehabilitation settings both nationally and internationally in the UK and Australia before returning to New Zealand in 2012.   
After realising her passion for Pilates she completed her training as a Pilates Instructor and founded HTPilatesPlus in 2013 where she has been instructing Pilates classes and coaching privately for the past 8 years. 
After experiencing first hand the effects of muscle dysfunction and pain following an accident where she was knocked from her bike by a car and subsequently the healing power of Pilates to restore movement, strengthen key muscles and keep pain at bay, Hollie has never looked back.
She has made it her life work to help women (and some men) to grow in strength and confidence in their own bodies, through Pilates, so they can be equipped for busy lives to do the things they NEED and LOVE to do!
Hollie is also certified in Ante and Post natal Pilates and is a member of the Women's and Men's Pelvic Health Special Interest group through Physiotherapy New Zealand.
Her focus is on strengthening the muscles of the core and to help women suffering from low back pain, recurrent injuries or other stability related concerns, particularly postpartum.
In 2020 Hollie took HTPilatesPlus online with the goal of reaching more women by bringing Pilates classes to them wherever they were and whatever the time!
Understanding that time is precious and life, work and family are a balancing act that at times need to be juggled with flexibility but also recognising the importance for every woman in taking time out of her day to reconnect with her body, to strengthen and tone, breathe deeply and have the endurance that she needs for a busy life.... 
Hollie created HTPilatesPlus online particularly for women who struggle to get to a class, live remotely or just need flexible hours in their busy seasons of life! 
HTPilatesPlus focuses on strengthening the muscles of the abdominals & back, the postural muscles of the neck and shoulders, the stability muscles of the hips and knees and on correct activation of the deep core and pelvic floor region. 
All classes include elements of flexibility, coordination and balance and are designed so that women can rebuild strength and stability in any areas of weakness and remain injury free both now and for the future!  

Tenika Reihana 
Uncover Inspiration
Certified Life Coach and Mindfulness Facilitator

Before moving to NZ 3 years ago, Tenika spent 7 years in remote Western Australia working in Aboriginal Health before transitioning over to Managing the Alcohol & Drug Counselling Services throughout the Western Desert. Tenika then moved to Perth where she worked in a Mindful Parenting Program combined with Drug and Alcohol Counselling.
After working with countless men, women and children in these roles and witnessing first-hand the pressures of mum life, work/life balance, parenting and navigating positive relationships, Tenika soon realised one common theme in every household (including her own) -
If the mum is ok everyone is ok
But if the mum's wheels started to fall off, it wasn’t long before the husband and children came crashing down with her. Through the launch of 'Uncover Inspiration', Tenika has made it her mission in life to create sustainable change by empowering what she likes to call 'CEO's of the household' to not only manage the stress and overwhelm of their day to day duties but to learn to love themselves and their family lives too. Guiding women on a journey of self-awareness, self-love and action. Allowing them to show up as the best version of themselves and become the woman & mother they were always meant to be.

"I loved being at the Lodge and surrounded by native bush and beautiful bird song. The catering was awesome, both your mum’s baking and Pennie’s meals were delicious. I loved the Pilates sessions and feel grateful to have met Tenika and listen to her talking about Mindful Living. Your Core and Breathing sessions were very helpful. You explained things so clearly and succinctly (as always) which made your explanations easy to understand"
"I totally enjoyed every minute.  I will go away with new knowledge regarding strengthening the core and what the core is.  I hope to work up to 2-3 days of Pilates this year through Hollie's online classes.  The Breathing topic was excellent and I will bring this into my daily calming routines.  Retreat was spot on... food and Pilates was perfect"
"Have loved the whole package.  Really enjoyed connecting the pilates to the breathing and mindfulness workshops.  Bonus offerings of good company, warm bed, hot spa, bush, birds, delicious food and reminders of the tools to use for managing wellbeing, mind, body and soul"
"I loved meeting new people, learning about mindfulness, the core & breathing, enjoying the environment and no cooking!  It was challenging pushing my body a little further, however very satisfying when this was achieved"
"Brilliant weekend.  Loved the chance to talk more about the 'core' and how it relates to Pilates and the physiology behind it all - a great motivation to keep up with Pilates.  Weekend went quickly - full of things without being hectic.  Loved being fed beautiful food - really managed to focus on the weekend and not keep thinking about home and work"
"I have felt like I have been away from normal daily life for ages so it has been great to get away.  It has been a good challenge to take part in the Pilates classes and I can feel muscles that have not been used for a while.  Food was excellent, company also and Hollie you have been awesome.  I would like to do more Pilates as the year unfolds"
"Realising how unflexible/tight I've become - needs lots of work!  Realising I've got a long road ahead of recovery but this weekend has been the starting point.  The whole weekend has been an opportunity to relax, and unwind in a safe environment and meeting some lovely, strong women"
"Looking forward to continued Pilates and improved techniques.  Will try to put into use the breathing for different situations.  Enjoyed the weekend greatly.  Hope to do more of this type of weekends.  Great to meet new ladies. "
"When you see the opportunity to attend Retreat - Say YES!"
