Description

Join us at Casa Fuzetta for a mindfulness and yoga retreat with Jacqueline Kyne at a luxurious private villa in Olhão and the perfect place to relax, refresh and recharge as we enter 2020 and are mindful of the resolutions we have made for the coming year.

This retreat will help you to slow down, connect to your inner wisdom, and bring more peace and joy into your life. Soak up an abundance of nourishing locally sourced foods, sunshine, daily yoga and mindfulness sessions to bring that calm and controlled feeling back into your life. You will feel lighter in both body and mind and come home with a greater sense of clarity.

On our retreats we help to connect like-minded women, who all have the same mission – to prioritise their own self-care in order to create better physical and emotional balance in our busy lives.

You will enjoy a varied and enlightening program that includes yoga, pilates, meditation, delicious food and great company.

The energy of this beautiful villa coupled with the experience and care of the retreat team will leave you feeling energised and renewed. In addition to the luxury accommodations, outdoor swimming pool and glorious outdoor space the location is close to beautiful beaches that help you feel connected and in tune with the natural rhythm of nature.

There are many charming restaurants, boutiques, and a spectacular daily food market that brings you back to a simple way of living. You will experience the locals as they come for their weekly fruit and vegetables and support a truly local and connected way of living. Our retreat experience is set up for you to deepen your own inner connection and to connect with a beautiful group of supportive women who will continue on this journey with you.

Together with a team of handpicked professionals – yoga teachers, holistic therapists, leading chefs, mindfulness experts, life coaches and other experts in the field of self-development we have created wellness retreats that bring a healthy balance into all aspects of life.

Accommodation

Casa Fuzetta is a historic townhouse located in the heart of Olhao’s old town. Originally, a classical gentleman’s residence, it was lovingly restored over a three year period, between 2014 and 2016. We called upon the skills of the local craftsmen and artisans to create a property that balances the heritage of its architecture with contemporary design and comfort- including a spectacular rooftop pool!

Throughout, we used a palette of natural colours and materials – white, stone, wood and linens, aiming to create a space in which everyone can feel at ease the moment they walk through the door.

With our local knowledge and relationships, we can help you create authentic, personal and unique experiences and events. We can also help you develop bespoke programs of activities to support spiritual, creative, wellness, meditation and corporate retreats. Our local house manager will be on call to help with those unexpected issues that even the best planning can’t foresee!

Located in the heart of Olhao’s old town , the fabulous markets and a wide selection of family run restaurants are within easy walking distance of the house – as are the ferries and taxis to the outlying islands.

Almost, best of all, the house is no more than 15 minutes drive from Faro international airport – well served, all year round by multiple airlines

Highlights

• Yoga, Qi Gong, Pilates (appropriate for all levels of experience)
• Mindfulness, relaxation, meditation, yoga nidra and breathing technique sessions

Teacher

Jacqueline Kyne

I am a holistic nutritionist and wellness specialist, designing retreats and wellness events with leading chefs, yoga instructors, mindfulness teachers and other experts. I am passionate about living a more conscious life and helping others to connect with their mind, body and soul and deepen their intuition and inner guidance.

By developing a self-care practice filled with mindfulness, meditation, moving your body, spending time in nature, nourishing yourself with fresh whole foods you can bring a deeper sense of connection to yourself. Through my events and retreats you will find an amazing group of likeminded individuals who are looking to slow down, tune in to that silent inner voice and reconnect to themselves. I look forward to meeting you at my upcoming events.

Having worked in various settings over the past 25 years including corporate, private practice, hospitals and athletic clubs I have found that creating a positive relationship with self has the greatest impact in our lives and in the lives of those around us.

What past guests have said

“I’ve taken part in several wellness challenges spearheaded by Jacqueline and I love how they foster a focus on wellbeing at work while also building a sense amongst us all that there is support for making healthy choices and changes to our lives. I’ve also been lucky enough to take part in a couple of her mindfulness sessions with different groups and it’s impressive to see how she is able to meet a group – and the individuals within a group – where they are so that even those who may have started off feeling wary of mindfulness are willing to join in and give it a go. Simply put, she’s great at what she does!” – Madeline Higgins, Evoke Group

“After an exhausting week of 24/7 meetings, it was wonderful to have Jacqueline guide us through a relaxing meditation session. Many of the participants live with chronic migraine and Jacqueline’s method was perfect. In preparing for the session, Jacqueline basically prompted our brief (in other words “she knows her stuff”); asking about the participants, wanting to genuinely understand their needs. She was very happy to suggest a proposed approach and also to amend her usual process to ensure that the participants got the most out of the session. The session was unanimously enjoyed and appreciated. I would definitely recommend Jacqueline to lead a meditation or mindfulness session. Her ability to meet the ‘client brief’ is spot on.” – Jenny Fitzgerald, Advocacy Manager Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Industry
