Can I drink the water in Portugal?
There’s always spring water available, so you don’t need to drink tap water, which has a much higher mineral content than you might be used to. Even the Portuguese boil the water before drinking it, so stick to the water we provide for you
What's Included on the Retreat?
Whilst each retreat is All Inclusive, there are some variances between the retreats, so visit our Booking Page and select the dates you are interested in to get all the info you need.
Where are the retreats held?
At a private resort in the Algarve. We are located between the towns of Loulé and Saö Brás
I need to fill in a Passenger Locator Form. What's the address please?
Life Right Health Retreats 8100-266 Loulé, Portugal
Do I have to share a room with someone?
No, on our retreats, everyone gets their own room
What is a Digital Detox?
This is a detox from anything with a plug, battery or screen! This is so you can spend 100% of your time focusing on you. When you arrive, you will hand in your phone and electronic devices and these will be returned to you (fully charged) when you leave.
Don’t worry, the world will keep on spinning whilst you are with us ! Why not take the opportunity to tell your friends you are going on a Life Right Retreat and will be offline for 6 days.
Out of 100 people coming on one of our retreats, 98 of those tell us they are happy for us to keep their phone at the end of the retreat. Try lifting your head up and looking at the world around you, not the fake worlds portrayed on social media!
I will need to be able to check my work emails, what can I do?
Look for another job? Seriously, you are taking this time off from work, therefore why are you doing work? If your boss cannot respect your time on a health and wellness retreat then send out your CV before you join us…
Seriously, if this is you, then you need to be on this retreat more than ever. There are no phones or digital devices permitted on the retreat.
Can I extend my stay with you?
Each retreat is 6 days, however it’s possible and common for people to start working with Lilly, either in clinic or online before the retreat and everyone always tells us it’s a great idea to have a “Lilly top-up” every now and again, just to keep everything on track.
What happens if I want to arrive earlier or stay later?
We have a number of hotels close to the airport and the beach that we recommend. You can stay there and we can pick you up on the day of the retreat and drop you back there after.
When looking at flight costs, it can often be cheaper to fly out 1 or two days before and stay in a hotel… room costs are inexpensive by comparison to the UK and it gives you a head start on your tan too! Talk to us about hotels and we will be happy to forward our list of places other retreaters have given positive feedback about previously.
Do people come on their own?
Absolutely – 99% of those who attend our retreat come on their own and whilst it can be a little scary at first, you will feel at ease in no time. You will arrive as strangers and leave as friends.
Remember, everyone on our retreat has their own room. No-one is required to share with someone else, unless they are travelling together and want to.
How many people come to each retreat?
We only invite 10 people to attend. This is because the retreats are intensive and we work closely with you on a one-to-one basis to help you achieve all your goals whilst you are with us.
Is this held in a hotel?
No, we have a private resort, so no-one else, other than your fellow retreaters and our team will be there. Again, it’s another way we can create the idyllic environment to illicit change and transformation.
What issues can you help with?
Any psychological, or emotional issue, straight off the bat. This includes abuse, anxiety, bereavement, body dysmorphia, confidence, depression, detox, diet, eating issues, fear, fibromyalgia, guilt, menopause, relationships, speech issues, stress, trauma & weight loss.
Add to this physical issues such as aches, chronic pain, lack of strength, poor mobility, or muscle tightness and you are starting to get close.
Whatever you are experiencing, why not get in touch with us and let’s chat about what we can do.
Can I continue working with Lilly after the retreat?
Of course. In fact, most people choose to, given the close working relationship they have with Lilly.
If you live close to one of her clinics, you book in for a face-to-face session. Otherwise, work with her online via video call.
What clothes should I wear on the retreat?
Whatever you feel comfortable in. There’s no need to dress up – most people hang out in gym gear or similar. There will be plenty of sun, so your sunbathing kit plus swimwear too. In reality, you can get all you need in a carry on bag, so unless you are planning on staying in the Algarve for longer, you will be fine without hold luggage.
I've never done yoga before. Will I be able to join in?
Many who come on the retreat have not tried yoga before, so you won’t be the only one.
Monica is an excellent instructor and tailors the classes to everyone’s ability. You will definitely find the classes beneficial.
What happens if my flight is cancelled?
The first thing to do is let us know via WhatsApp on +447956004434.
Once you have spoken with us, don’t delay in booking another flight as there will be many others who are also looking for a replacement flight and this will make it harder and more expensive the longer you leave it.
I have another question. How do I get in contact?
You can reach us through our contact page or send a message on WhatsApp to +447956004434 and we will get straight back to you
