The Venue

West Lexham eco Manor is a tranquil and stunning family-run retreat centre, run on over 90% renewable energy. Set in a 21-acre slice of protected valley, it hosts the cleanest 160 chalk streams in the world. With its peaceful sanctuary garden, warming outdoor fire- bowl and abundance of wildlife, it is the perfect space to replenish and rejuvenate as a group, to unplug and give yourself the gift of time away from the bustle of daily life.

FOOD

I am excited to be able to offer wholesome, delicious, immune-boosting food from the organic biodynamic farm of West Lexham! Nourishment is a core element of my work and the retreats include guidance and education of how you can utilise food to rejuvenate yourself.

During our time together you will learn how to cook healthy, delicious, seasonal food, including chocolate and turmeric shots (all sugar, gluten, animal protein free).

If you would like to get involved with the cooking, please let me know on booking.

YOGA

Teaching yoga is such a joy! I have had the opportunity to offer guidance on the mat for the last two decades. 

During the retreats, I offer supportive, playful classes suited to beginners as well as those who have spent more time on a yogic path. 

The classes focus on stimulating the liver and the lymphatic while focusing the mind and calming the nervous system, using hatha-flow, yin and restorative yoga. We will finish the sessions with meditation or Yoga Nidra.

“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”
