Registration for our long awaited retreat is FINALLY open and we only have 1 spot left! We will be heading to the south of Portugal this coming March to stay at a luxury private villa. Enjoy 6 days of relaxation, sunbathing by the rooftop pool, island hopping by boat, strolls through the city's fresh markets, relaxing on the beach, gourmet food (and wine, if you would like) by a local chef and of course... YOGA!
After the year we've all had, some fun in the sun seems like exactly what we need. But it's more than that. Spending a week in such a magical place, with all like minded yogi's around you, reflecting, exploring, practicing, and growing.. you will come back changed.
My hope is that you will feel empowered and recharged, make lifetime friends, follow your wanderlust to a place you've never been, and come home THAT person who won't shut up about the amazing trip they just went on ;).
It will be an experience of a lifetime and I hope you will join me! (Newbies welcome - yoga will meet you where you are, you don't need to be advanced to come with!)
When & Where?
March 29th - April 4th 2022
Casa Fuzetta in Olhao, Portugal
About the house...
Casa Fuzetta is a place like no other (its been confirmed from a ton of retreat leaders worldwide that I've talked too!). From the moment you arrive at this historic villa, you begin to experience the magic of Portugal. Just imagine yourself relaxing by the stunning rooftop pool or taking a break in the peaceful meditation room, with sunshine gently coming through coloured glass ceiling windows…
Originally, a classical gentleman’s residence, it was lovingly restored by the new owners. Since it’s been re-opened, the enchanting Casa Fuzetta has been mentioned in the various international media like Forbes, Monocle, Elle and The Telegraph — just to name a few.
The villa is located in the heart of an old fishing town Olhão — amongst cobbled streets, colourful tiles, the (unexpectedly) vibrant art scene and family-run restaurants.
The town rubs shoulders with a few charming islands: Armona, Culatra, Farol and Deserta. The first two — Ilha da Culatra and Ilha da Armona — belong to the Ria Formosa Natural Park, a protected area with a unique ecosystem, featuring swamps, lagoons and sand dunes.
You will have plenty of time to get out of Casa to explore some of these during our retreat. Take your comfy sandals with you!
A private room with a large double bed and ensuite bathroom (limited availability)
A shared room with either double bed or two single beds and ensuite bathroom.
Get ready for a dance of flavours, pleasure and nourishment. The food at the retreat will be prepared by excellent local private chefs, who will make sure we indulge in meals that are not only delicious, but also healthy.
Expect 3 vegetarian meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) with the exception of the first day (dinner only) and the last day (breakfast only).
Coffee, tea, water and healthy snacks will be available to you at all times. If you’re vegan or have any allergies, please let us know and we’ll accommodate you!
What to expect?
Before arrival, you will be given an itinerary that lays out our days. But remember this is your trip. Everything we plan we are offering, but you will have the freedom to choose to spend your time however you like!
Most days will look a power yoga class in the morning, followed by a healthy brunch and an afternoon of free time. You can lounge by the pool, head to the beach, take a trip to an island, explore the town, book massages (the house has 2 treatment rooms!), or whatever else you would like. In the evenings we will gather for dinner together on the rooftop terrace and wrap up our day with a restorative yoga class. If you would like to indulge in a glass of wine at dinner, that will be available, but it is not included.
Throughout our trip you will be encouraged to journal and we will provide you with a book we will all read - if you want! - to enhance your reflection, personal growth and discovery. We will end our days with a closing circle where we can talk about any and everything - but you will never be pressured to share if you're uncomfortable!
Carolyn and I will be available throughout the retreat to work with you on your practice, if you're looking to get some one on one time or come home having nailed a specific pose!
