The House
Casa Fuzetta was originally built in the late nineteenth century, and recently renovated by a London couple with the intent for it to be a place of spiritual significance. This home is meant to be a sanctuary for retreats focused around creativity, reflection, movement, and general well being.
The Town - Olhão
Olhão is largest fishing port in the Algarve boasting 300 days of sunshine per year. The Algarve is the southern beachside area of Portugal and is a common holiday destination for Northern Europeans. Casa Fuzetta is located in the middle of town with minimal noise, except when Casa Fuzetta is the home being noisy! The local dogs like to charmingly indulge in a dawn and dusk chorus. Yoga on the rooftop with the church bells, bird song and gentle hum of the town waking up is very special.

Movement | Sam Garcia

Sam will be leading the movement element of the retreat and we are so excited! A yoga instructor and founder of danceTONE, she will be with us teaching 1-2 classes daily. She’ll be with us the whole trip which will allow her to teach around how the group is feeling and what our bodies are needing that day. Between healthy eating, exploring the unknown, and movement, SWTravels is truly for the thoughtful traveler.

Sam was a professional dancer for 7 years and is 200 hour yoga certified. She has been teaching dance & a variety of fitness methods for 13 years, working with men, women, children, celebrities and all sorts of wonderful clients. She is a certified health coach through IIN. Sam teaches mind body connection through breath and intention. Feeling good is equally as important as looking good, and that’s all dependent on creating a mind body connection. She believes movement is a mirror for the soul!

Dance Tone incorporates dance inspired moves into dynamic sequences for a full body workout. Strengthen your mind, tone your body, and tell your story through movement.
