JOIN ME IN ALGARVE – PORTUGAL
Welcome to my 7 day Get Over Yourself Retreats in the Algarve in Portugal!
Located just 40 minutes from Faro Airport.
This was an abandoned village in the mountains and it has been lovingly restored by the owner in 2018 into a purpose built retreat…it is absolutely stunning and so peaceful!
All the guests are in it together. I cater for all fitness levels so you will never be left behind. It really is truly special to see the teamwork, group support, camaraderie and friendship develop over the 7 days between everyone. That is only possible if we all do everything…plus it really does give you such a huge sense of achievement and pride…its priceless!

“Sally’s enthusiasm and zest for life is infectious. Her ability to change lives is phenomenal – she doesn’t even realise she has this gift and that is what makes her so special. Just love her to bits.”
“I have had incredible inspirational, motivational week. Skin is glowing, eyes are bright, I’ve lost many inches, and I’m so much fitter and stronger. I have received infinite love and support from an amazing group of people ❤️Thank you so much Sally.”
Please do not let this level of activity put you off.
The Retreats are structured in such a way to make them manageable.
I have seen so many people complete the 7 days, some haven’t exercised for years!
I want you to get the absolute most out of your week, both physically and mentally and I know how to do that so please do trust me!
You will leave feeling fitter and stronger in both body but more importantly mind, than you ever thought possible. Any inevitable weight loss will just be a bonus!
It truly is a special place. I want you to feel looked after and cared for while you challenge yourself at the same time.
All places are for a shared room. Please do not worry about this, we know it can make some people nervous but it really does end up adding to your retreat experience… amazing friendships have been made!
I want you to experience what it feels like to feel utterly fantastic…after just 1 week. It really is possible…after all…it is all in your head!
I want to inspire you and give you that belief so you can motivate yourself to make your own change. I want you to rediscover your MOJO!
I so look forward to seeing you there!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where is the Retreat based?
The retreat address is:
Rua da Cortiça
São Brás de Alportel
Serra da Calderão
It is in the cork mountain region of the Algarve in Portugal just a 40 minute taxi journey from Faro airport.
Does the price include accommodation?
The only things not included are your flights and transfers to and from the airport.
We do give you a number of a local taxi firm who are very reliable and you can arrange your transfer direct with them.
I am worried about coming on my own and having to share a room.
Guests often comment that they have loved sharing a room at the end of the retreat! The rooms are spacious and beautiful and there are always areas to find your own peace in those moments you need it.
You can request a room to yourself but it would be almost twice the price.
I am worried that I will not be fit enough and will hold everyone up
This is always a worry for guests, whether they are coming to the 3 day retreat in the UK or on this 7 day retreat.
We cater for ALL fitness levels and truly believe that we should all work together as this creates an extremely supportive environment.
There are modifications in ALL the classes. Some guests have modified EVERYTHING and are still amazed at how effective this was. Do not ever feel bad for modifying…EVER!
What do I need to bring with me?
Lots of gym kit! It is up to you how often you change and also how you choose to dress in the evening. Some stay in gym kit for the soup and evening but most prefer to ditch the gym kit and wear something casual for the night.
- A spare pair of trainers and socks – if you don’t want to get your new ones dusty on the walks.
- A water bottle.
You may want to carry a small rucksack if you want to carry water on the walks.
- Some ear plugs and a sleep eye mask
- Sun cream
- Hair conditioner – shampoo and body wash is provided. There are hairdryers in the rooms too!
- A book – there is a silent reading class!
- A sense of humour and an open mind!
Is it for women only?
This is the same answer whether it is the UK retreats or Portugal but no it is not just for women. There does tend to be more women but men are very welcome. There are usually some men on every retreat even if they are sometimes dragged by their other halves!
I am allergic to Pineapple/Dairy/Banana etc.
Do I have to take part in all the activities?
Will it be too hot?
We walk first thing in the morning when it is cooler, often seeing the beautiful sunrise.
All the bedrooms, and public areas, including the yoga/fitness studios have air conditioning…so any outdoor heat really isn’t a problem.
