Spring Wellness Retreat

15th-17th MARCH 2023

West Lexham, Norfolk

1.25 hr from Kings Cross, see their website here

Winter is the perfect time for slowing down, nurturing and restoring the body and mind.

The Retreat

In this retreat you will deepen your yoga practice, exploring physical, mental and spiritual balance through movement and breath.
We will cook and eat together learning how food can nourish our bodies and balance our entire selves.
We will reconnect with nature and with our natural selves.

This retreat is suitable for anyone who would like to spend a weekend in nature; learning about wellbeing, healthy clean food and Yoga. Beginners are welcome as well as all ages.

Let yourself be nourished.
Let yourself go inwards and explore the places that need attention.
Let yourself acknowledge that this inner work is intrinsically linked to service beyond ourselves.

My retreats combine structure and space to just be; action and relaxation; opportunity for learning and reconnecting; opportunity for reflection.



We are excited to be able to source the vegetables 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 use food to rejuvenate the self.
During our time together you will learn how to prepare superfood shakes, cook healthy delicious food, including chocolate and turmeric shots (all sugar, gluten, animal protein free).



Teaching yoga is a joy I have had the opportunity offer guidance on the mat for the last 18 years. 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 the liver and lymphatic system meridians using vinyasa and restorative yoga, and breathing exercises to regenerate and support the nervous system. We will also look at companion breathing exercises to help alkalize the body and stimulate the liver function.
We will finish the sessions with meditation or Yoga Nidra, an ancient form of deep relaxation to set intention and release deep tensions.

“Forget the free and connecting yoga, forget the delicious, highly nutritional shakes and meals, forget the beautiful, birdsong-filled, natural surroundings….what you have in this retreat is spiritual advice offered with insight and love, freedom of heart and mind and a solid platform to build again. Perfect.”
Nina Edmond, Bristol

“Rina is a facilitator of consciousness. A wellness retreat with her helped me to reconnect with what actually matters in my life. After only a few days I’m feeling more established in myself, clear about the next steps to take, and inspired by all of it. A true gift. Thank you!”

Emily Glaser, Santa Fe

“Rina’s lighthearted and playful approach is balanced with a serious dedication to teaching that can help students of all levels deepen their practice.Her multidisciplinary approach and skillful instruction creates a strong connection between our experiences on the mat within the larger context of our lives. Rina is able to transmit the timeless wisdom from ancient spiritual traditions as well as get us up to date on the latest scientific research helping people achieve a modern and comprehensive understanding of our personal health and collective well being.” 

Ben Kappel, Louisiana

“As a long time practitioner of yoga, I take great joy in discovering teachers like Rina who recognize the sacredness of this practice. Her passion for transformation, wealth of knowledge and a depth of presence serve as a beautiful foundation upon which humor, levity and love prevail. Deep bow.”

Ryan Seaman, Producer & Writer, Los Angeles

“No other course or teacher has persuaded me to commit before but Rina’s style seriously over-delivers and exceeds expectation. It is difficult to know how best to describe her as she encapsulates so much but certainly she is a tremendously knowledgeable and inspirational source.”

Jessica Fallon, Bath

“The Easter weekend retreat was one of the best choices I’ve ever made.  It was my first ever yoga retreat, and I already know that it’s set the bar incredibly high.  Set against the backdrop of a stunning old farm that has been transformed into an eco retreat/holiday destination with the most amazing grounds – the weekend was a perfect balance of yoga, reflection, spiritual connection and delicious food.  Rina’s invitation was always there for us to take what we needed from the experience and for the rest to relax and rejuvenate.  This in turn brought out the best in all of us taking part, and I don’t think I’ve ever encountered such a big-hearted and open group as I did. I came back from the retreat feeling totally refreshed and knowing that I’d shared a unique journey.  Namaste, Rina.”

Alex Arlango, London

“The retreat was simply a beautiful experience. I arrived stressed, heavy and unable to think straight. I left light, peaceful and clear. The style of yoga, healthy living and spiritual understanding I got from Rina was inspirational and matched by the love, energy and connection we felt as a group. I’ll take away great lessons and memories from these few days and look forward to the next one.”

Michael Brett

“It was a thought-provoking and life-changing weekend.
It was a pleasure to meet you and to get to know you all a bit. Thank you.
Thank you to Rina for curating such an amazing weekend with grace, kindness, wisdom and intelligence.
It was time for me to take control of my life and make changes.
I just feel more balanced and less manic and buffeted (despite Eunice).”

Miranda Marshal

“Rina ran a wonderful retreat. It was extremely relaxing and I came away feeling light and lovely. Rina is very practical – you don’t have to come away with a complete change of mindset about how to live your life, but some practical tips about health and wellbeing that make a real difference. I highly recommend.”
