A Retreat for Mind, Body, and Soul
West Lexham beckons to all who seek the space to reconnect with themselves in the company of like-minded individuals. This retreat is designed for those eager to explore ways to enhance their well-being through the practice of yoga and mindfulness. It’s a place where you can not only deepen your yoga practice but also understand how movement and breath can harmonize physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of your being.
Nourishment for the Senses: Organic, Seasonal Delights

It’s a journey of culinary discovery, learning how to nourish not only your body but your entire self. The retreat welcomes participants of all ages and levels, making it an inclusive space for anyone seeking well-being and connection.
Tranquil and Sustainable: The Venue
West Lexham Eco Manor, the retreat’s venue, is a tranquil family-run center that operates on over 90% renewable energy. Set within a 21-acre protected valley, it is surrounded by the purest 160 chalk streams in the world. With a peaceful sanctuary garden, a warming outdoor fire-bowl, and abundant wildlife, it’s the perfect space to recharge and rejuvenate. It’s an opportunity to unplug and gift yourself time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Food: A Wholesome, Immune-Boosting Experience
The retreat offers nourishment from the organic biodynamic farm of West Lexham. Wholesome, delicious, and immune-boosting food is a core element of the experience. During your stay, you’ll learn to prepare healthy, seasonal dishes, including delightful chocolate and turmeric shots (all sugar, gluten, and animal protein-free). If you’re interested in the cooking process, you’re encouraged to get involved.
