Take time to connect on this retreat through Elemental Mandala Vinyasa & Yin.
A Luxury Boutique Yoga Retreat in Portugal - with myself, Annie Clarke and Emma Jaulin Yoga
April 24th 2018 - April 29th 2018
So this one is pretty cool… I have collaborated with my beautiful friend Emma to bring you 5 days at a gorgeous villa in Portugal. Emma and I have done 200 hours of training together (100 hrs of Yin in London and 100 hrs of Mandala flow and Shamanism in Goa!) and have a really wonderful connection that goes far beyond our love for creating beautiful experiences for our students. I think this combo is going to be magic and I hope that you want to share it with us.
This has been in the making for quite some time, every week we seem to be adding more and more to make it absolutely perfect, we thought it was about time to share our dream retreat!
The private residence, Casa Fuzetta is nestled in the Roman village of Olhao, a vibrant fishing village in Portugal. Our home for the retreat, Casa Fuzetta, is one of the oldest in the village and has been beautifully restored to its sixteenth century glory. Each stunning individually themed bedroom has a huge en suite and is ready to provide you true comfort on your journey throughout your retreat.
Casa Fuzetta alone, provides us with all we will need. We are spoilt with a glistening rooftop pool, yoga deck, meditation room, treatment rooms, multiple terraces to sneak away to read, journal and embrace you. For your comfort white company bed and bath linen, hammam beach towels and baskets for the beach are there for your use.
Outside of Casa Fuzettas doors the local market brings you an array of incredible colours, white sandy islands, deserted beaches and dolphins are just a brief boat trip away.
Casa Fuzetta, Olhao, the surrounding islands, the community, are a sanctuary. A place to reconnect with you, reconnect with a slower way of life and embrace a community of beautiful souls creating and offering everyday magic. It is our gift to share this with you.
Every ‘thing’ be it a physical being, a flower, an element, an animal, is connected. Our physical bodies, our mental bodies, our souls, our connection to each other, to our planet, our home, the universe, all forms a web of connectivity.
Emma and I offer this retreat to you as space to deepen your practice both on and off your mat, to gain a deeper insight into how you are connected both internally and externally, across your physical, astral and causal layers. Through both Emma & I’s teachings we will be exploring our practice using dynamic Elemental Mandala methodology and Yin.
Casa Fuzetta is the perfect place for us to be on this journey of connection, full of history, of energies, of authentic roots, this private residence will instantly support us with a deeper connection, one we can truly feel within our bodies.
This retreat will be one of a kind for many reasons, but also you will be on retreat being taught by two Yoga Teachers. Both Emma and I will be leading our morning and evening practices and will both be with you through your journey. Over the course of the retreat is it our intention to guide, to support and facilitate connection.
And of course there will be delicious food too!
We are so excited to host Serena Louth as our chef for the retreat. Serena is a plant-based chef and yoga teacher based in London. She believes that the secret to health and happiness lies in a more holistic lifestyle, so is forever exploring more natural ways of living and eating. Through her recipes she hopes to nourish mind, body and soul with wholesome, vibrant and unrefined foods that benefit both our bodies and our planet.
She will be creating delicious vegetarian brunches, snacks and dinners. We believe in nourishing our bodies with fresh, local ingredients leaving you feeling light and energised but never hungry!
