    "Abi and I are well and looking forward to Christmas at home with our close family. 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."

Testimonials

  • Review by Bec McBride

    "Attending Rina's detox retreat at Holycombe truly was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I arrived in a daze of confusion regarding not only my inner thoughts but also with my relationship with food and I left with such an immense sense of clarity, calmness and the strength to commit to a healthy diet which my body so desperately craved. "

    "Being a yoga teacher myself I knew I needed a huge boost of energy and Rina provided me with the safest of spaces to truly listen to my heart and inhale a whole lot of inspiration."

    "Rina is a walking bundle of inspiration and If you're new to yoga or have been in the game for a long time, this magical woman can teach you things that you never even knew needed to be learnt."

  • Review by Alex Chayney from UK

    "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!"

  • Review by Nina Edmond from UK

    "Forget the free and connecting yoga, forget the delicious highly nutritional shakes and meals, forget the beautiful bird song, 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!"

  • Review by Teresa Fabian from the UK

    "Rina created a nourishing, calming space. I loved the balance of yoga by the fire, walking in the woods, 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 weekend."

  • Review by Clare F. from UK

    "Rina ran a wonderful retreat. It was extremely relaxing and I came away feeling light and lovely. She 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 well-being that make a real difference. I highly recommend."

  • Review by Lizzie from Bradford, UK

    "As I have found with her approach to yoga, Rina embodies everything that she teaches, with clarity, poise and precision. Her direct and distinctly unfussy approach is accompanied by a vast wealth of knowledge gained by personal experience. Rina speaks of the alchemy behind living food and as with all magical recipes it remains the secret ingredient. As with most things nowadays, there is information available to us at our fingertips or in all good bookshops. Rina's intimate and knowledgeable approach cuts through the hours you could so easily spend trawling for information, comparing reviews, and recipes."

  • Review by Su Worthington from Bristol, UK

    "Rina is very knowledgeable about foods from different countries and their health enhancing properties and has many books on the subject which we were welcome to browse through. Lunch of courgette pasta with basil pesto, crackers, and a sun-dried tomato dip was delicious, and what can I say about chocolate nut slice?! "

  • Review by Lara Whyte from London, UK

    "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 raw 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 energized. 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."

    "Rina created such a lovely warm and relaxing environment for our weekend retreat. The food was delicious and varied, and I picked up lots of techniques and tips for healthy eating going forward. The yoga was both challenging and relaxing. It was great to meet some other lovely people, share experiences and feel uplifted through conversation. I came away from the weekend with a renewed and refreshed outlook on life, ready to embrace the year full of self love and excitement for what it may bring"

    "We had a beautiful weekend in Holycombe house with Rina. The house was wonderful and Rina was a great host; the food, the yoga and the talks were all so inspiring. Rina has such a great understanding of nutrition and wellness as well as such a developed yoga practice that I came away with so much information to filter into to my daily life. All of the other people on the retreat were wonderful and as a collective we had a great weekend together. I can't wait for the next one!"
