6x Yoga Classes
(from beginner to advanced level)
Monica has an amazing energy and vibe that transcends her teachings and flows straight into your soul. She is a truly spiritual being, that also has a vast knowledge and empathy for all levels of her integrative yoga approach.
An ideal way to start your transformative days with us
Meditation & Mindfulness
6x Meditation & Mindfulness Classes
including transcendental, guided imagery, compassion-focused and breathing.
These sessions are interwoven into the programme at different times of the day, to compliment the therapeutic work you will be doing and to increase activity in the frontal lobe and hippocampus. Research suggests that an increase in grey matter can lead to improved focus, clarity of mind, and an emotional balance that helps deal with life’s ups and downs.
3x Aquafit Aerobic Classes
An Aquafit class is gentle on the joints, as it uses the resistance of the water to support yet, challenge your muscles. Ideal if you are experiencing change in your mind and body on the Retreat. Not only does the water improve cardio conditioning and heart rate variability, it can heal with its oxygen atoms just by being in it!
2x HIIT Classes
High intensity short bursts of energy increases your anaerobic energy and glycolysis systems, meaning your blood sugar regulation is enhanced – ideal if you have been very stressed, anxious or have energy dips. In some studies it has also improved VO2 max, BP, BMI and endothelial function.
1x Integrative Aroma-Hypnotherapy treatment
Devised by Lilly to impact the mind:body pathway on a bi-directional basis. This treatment is innovative in that it can change conscious and unconscious processes, through neural and stimulatory points of reference, both on your hands and feet and through your cranium. A 45-minute immersive experience that is combined with a personalised psychotherapeutic audio experience to change your brain!
1x Stress-relief Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage
The tension that is held in your head, back and shoulders, can confuse your autonomic system, by sending incorrect signals to your brain to relay that you are unsafe. Clearing held tensions and muscle contraction helps the nervous system to achieve calm, leaving you a clearer pathway to evoke change and clearer signalling..

Organic Food & Drink
Organic local whole foods, served by our experienced chef and her team to delight your palate whilst achieving therapeutic goals. whether that be improved focus, mood or tension, less bloating, weight/fat loss goals or to simply nourish your body back to strength and balance.

Excursions with a purpose!
Part of the reason why our Retreats are so beneficial and life changing, is the unique synergy of all of the wellbeing components in our mind:body programme. Part of this also includes, nature, grounding and connecting with the elements. Sun, sea, sand, music and laughter form an intrinsic and important part of your journey with us on one of our Retreats. A visit to two of the amazing beaches on the Algarve, is definitely what the doctor ordered, so you can feel the sand underfoot, the breeze in your hair, the sun on your body and the sound of the waves lapping against the shoreline. One visit will celebrate a sunset and allow us to enjoy a beach meditation, the other visit will give us the opportunity to run or walk along the sand and maybe venture into the balmy blue sea for some open water swimming.
After The Retreat
We can be in your life for as long as you need us to be
We say ‘au revoir’ at the end of the Retreat, not goodbye. Our philosophy is that you are your own expert, you know with reflection, honesty and self-care priorities what you will need to stay as well as you feel when you leave the Retreat. You take away with you, as a gift from us, a new way of thinking and feeling, a healthier body, a mind that feels listened to and resolved, personalised lifestyle guidance, a 3-week healthy eating plan (including recipes) and downloads to help your mind, brain and breathing stay calmer.
You also get member access to Lilly’s online health and wellbeing classes, (covering a wide range of issues such as mind and mood control, focus, confidence, sleep, nutrition, focus, general wellbeing) and the option of seeing Lilly or one of the other health practitioners in a Clinical or online environment when you get back home – all of which can be discussed, agreed and booked before you leave, if that suits you better.
