A Spring Yoga Weekend Retreat West Lexham Norfolk 22-24 April 2022

Enjoy a weekend of yoga at the award-winning eco-friendly paradise that is West Lexham. A beautiful 22-acre estate in the Norfolk countryside that will be our home for a blissful weekend of yoga, organic food, wild swimming and time to explore this extraordinary and inspirational place.

West Lexham is run on 90% renewables and organic principles and is host to a wide variety of wildlife. The original farm buildings have been thoughtful and creatively renovated to ensure a very special space that is perfect for us to unwind and relax for the weekend.

The accommodation

Your accommodation for the weekend is a luxury ensuite room – twin share or triple share. Single occupancy is also available. All the rooms are accessed from a beautiful courtyard and there is a large kitchen, dining area and lounge for us to take our meals in and plenty of space to relax.
Linen, towels, organic soap and body wash are included. Please bring your own towel if you would like to wild swim.
The Barn is also a pet friendly space and so if you would like to bring your dog please do so ( additional cost £35 payable at the end of your weekend). However, please ensure that your dog is under control and you respect that some guests may not be so used to your beloved pooch!

The food

For those who have been on Jane’s retreats before, you know that the food is a particularly important part of your weekend. Your meals are based on Ayurveda principles to nourish and energise us throughout your weekend. All food is vegetarian and many of the ingrediants are grown in the vegetable gardens at West Lexham. Your allergy requirements can be easily catered for.

The breakfast in the morning is very much a light meal, to set the day lightly for classes to follow.

Tea and coffee and minted water will be available for you to help yourself throughout the weekend.

We will enjoy two courses at lunch and dinner prepare by West Lexham’s in house chef. Your meals will be healthy, nutritious and you will  not be going hungry!

The yoga

Everybody is welcome on Jane’s retreats -whether you are a beginner or a seasoned yogi. Yoga is a practice that connects you to your body and breath like no other practice and Jane’s classes encourage you to respect and honour your body. She adapts the poses and breathing to ensure you are kept safe, comfortable and able to feel that connection – whatever your ability. Classes allow you to choose the pace and variations on the poses that enable you to practice at your own level of ability. There is no wrong way to practice a pose….a pose that frees up tension, gives you space in your body, encourages you to connect with your breath and helps you feel energised and calm at the same time – that is when your yoga practice is right for you.
The weekend will offer a mixture of different classes teaching breathing practices, dynamic and slow Vinyasa flow, Iyengar inspired yoga, yin inspired yoga, restorative yoga, Yoga Nidra and guided meditations.
You can attend when and how many classes you wish! After all…this is your weekend to unwind, stretch, move, breath and relax.
