The Retreat

Do you long to take time out from your day-to-day schedule to review your life and recharge your energy in a beautiful rural setting?

Would you like to undertake a safe and supportive cleanse and rejuvenation program to increase your mental and physical energy, led by highly experienced practitioners?

Would you like to be shown life ways you can put into practice to transform your health?

Join me for some restorative, nurturing time out – the perfect time for a cleanse, to balance weight, to boost the liver and to prepare the body and mind for rebirth and renewal.

Nurture yourself on a four-day retreat in the stunning Oxfordshire countryside, held by highly experienced wellbeing practitioners.

You will be guided on a gentle cleanse to nourish and rebalance your system, allowing you to return to yourself and feel lighter in mind and body.

The retreat will be held by experienced facilitator Rina Golan and her carefully chosen practitioner team:

Gaiea Sanskrit is a sound artist and Sanskrit teacher, she will take us on a fun and profound devotional singing experience.

Farrah is a Singer, a Sound Healer. Her passion is to inspire others to heal themselves and make change. Farrah qualified as a Gong Practitioner at the College of Sound Healing, where she remains a member. She uses the healing power of frequencies, whether through her voice or instruments, to heal and bring balance.

Mira Khanya invites you on a Movement Medicine journey – activating the embodied imagination through a weaving of words, tribal rhythms, nature sounds and medicine songs. A dance meditation of deepening connection.

Verity Owers, Integrative Counsellor MBACP (Accred), Specialising in bereavement support. Verity will be there to support and make sure we are comfortable with any discomfort.

The program will include daily yoga, meditation, delicious clean food sourced from Waterperry Gardens, sound healing, meditations, dancing and nature walks, all designed to support your process of transformation. All activities are optional – so you can choose to take part or rest.

This all-inclusive retreat is carefully structured to support your wellbeing:

We prepare the body, creating a safe container where we surrender and let go of behaviours and toxins that no longer serve us.

We undertake the cleanse, where the old version of ourselves dies, the part that has unconsciously learned unhealthy habits and ways of seeing ourselves.

We release karmic patterns or what we call in the West genetic patterns. We let go of the past and envision a new future for ourselves.

The Venue

Waterperry House is a stunning manor house in rural Oxfordshire, surrounded by eight acres of beautifully landscaped ornamental gardens, a river and wildlife. During the retreat, there will be plenty of opportunities to explore the grounds, walk, meditate in the silent garden and enjoy the fresh air. 

The retreat workshops will take place in large, comfortable and airy rooms in the house.

The bedrooms are simple and cosy, most with shared bathrooms.

The kitchen is spacious enough to accommodate our group if you want to be involved in the cooking.

“We were talking today about what an impact your retreat has had on us – particularly Abi. She has gained so much confidence and zest for life in the last 6 months, helped by fantastic GCSE results and really enjoying studying for her A Levels at our local 6th form college. We have also both stopped eating meat and are pescetarian (on our way to being vegetarian*;) winking). We are both feeling the health benefits and have much improved complexion, hair and nails. We have also been enjoying doing yoga”

Lara Joyce & Daughter

“Rina’s weekend detox retreat was an absolute breath of fresh air. The balance of invigorating morning yoga and a deeply restorative afternoon yin session fully satisfied my yoga cravings, whilst the exceptional juices, salads, soups and snacks all freshly prepared nourished me far more than expected. There was space within the weekend to snooze, read, walk and massage yet the best bit of all was that I left having learnt a lot about nutrition. Thanks to Rina bee pollen and chaga tea are now weekly staples and my body has never been happier!”

Alex Chayney

“Rina created a nourishing, calming space . I loved the balance of yoga, walking,  free time for thinking and reflecting, and cooking yummy food together. I considered myself someone who already knew a lot about healthy eating but I learnt a lot, and got fired up to learn more especially about superfoods after the retreat.”

Teresa Fabian, Financial Advisor, London

“Rina’s Spring Detox and yoga retreat was exactly what I needed; like minded individuals, discovering beautiful fresh healthy food (if you are feeling bored with your normal diet and uninspired walking around the supermarket, discovering these yummy foods is perfect), yoga with Rina (boy do I miss her yoga sessions, her narrative, pure love of the practice, knowledge and humour are unique) and peaceful walks in beautiful countryside. It was a real privilege to have a whole weekend dedicated to really looking after myself surrounded by amazing people. What an experience, thank you Rina and to everyone else that was there, a truly special group.”

Lindsay Whyte, Barrister, Bristol

“Rina created a wonderful nourishing space, and her yoga and meditation classes took me beyond my previous experience to a calm, warm and beautiful place in my mind whilst enabling me to make new shapes with my body. The food we cooked was delicious – I really did not know healthy food could be so incredible – and I learned a lot about feeding my body with the nutrients it craves to work best. The surroundings were divine and the group sessions supportive and illuminating. I left feeling refreshed and uplifted with my mind and body truly detoxed, relaxed and energised. I can really only describe the experience as magnificent. I am so grateful I went, it is probably the most positive thing I have done for myself in a very long time.”

Lara Whyte, Journalist, London

“Rina weaves a wonderful web of well-being, drawing on so many inspiring traditions around the world- be it Ayurvedic, Native American shamanism, or wisdom from African healing traditions. This makes her approach to teaching yoga and healthy eating truly unique, original and most of all enjoyable”
