AUTUMN CLEANSE Retreat
4 DAY AUTUMN CLEANSE RETREAT September 13th – 16th 2024
Autumn is the best time to cleanse and rejuvenate the body before the cold winter days, to reflect and reset.
Over four days, you will be guided on a gentle detox to nourish and rebalance your system, allowing you to return to yourself and feel lighter and joyful in your mind and body.
The program will include daily yoga, meditation, delicious, clean homemade food, sound healing, dancing, nature walks, and cooking together, all designed to support your process of transformation.
You will be supported by me and my carefully chosen team of highly experienced practitioners: a psychotherapist, dance teachers, sound healers, massage therapists, artists and nature lovers.
All activities are optional – so you can choose to take part or rest as your body needs require.
Dorm room (4 beds): £695
Twin room: £895
Single occupancy: £995

Waterperry House is a unique retreat venue, run by a meditation practitioner who, for 50 years, has been meditating for the wellbeing of all. The Waterperry estate is a space that holds pristine energy.
You will have plenty of opportunities to explore the expansive, landscaped grounds, meditate in the silent garden and enjoy quietude and exquisite beauty.
The retreat workshops will take place in spacious and light-filled rooms in the main house.
The stunning manor offers cosy and pretty accommodations with gorgeous views over the estate. Most bedrooms can be single or shared occupancy.
Eating with the intention of supporting, building and nourishing our bodies and hearts is an important part of my wellbeing philosophy. In this retreat, I will bring you towards understanding how to initiate and maintain a nutritious, rejuvenating, and delicious lifestyle.
For the past two decades, I have been experiencing and sharing the benefits of a 70% vegetable and 30% (mostly plant-based) protein diet with wonderful results.
Most vegetables we serve on our retreats are all grown at Waterperry House in their organic gardens. We cook freshly every day in the welcoming, professional kitchen, where people tend to gather between workshops to chat and help out. If you would like to be involved in the cooking – just let me know when you book.
RETREAT AS INITIATION
Together, we prepare the body, creating a safe container where you can surrender and let die what is not serving us.
In the process of undertaking the cleanse, you let go of the parts of yourself that have unconsciously adopted unhealthy habits and ways of seeing yourself; you are reborn into the version of yourself that is aligned with all that you value: your dharma.
We emerge feeling rejuvenated and with the ability to envision a new future for ourselves. Every retreat allows us to heal and celebrate as a community, a sangha.

“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). 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!”
“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”
