About West Lexham
West Lexham Manor in Norfolk is the ideal location for a summer weekend retreat. Set in peaceful countryside perfect for long walks and a short drive away from the sweeping sandy beaches of Holkham and Brancaster for those wanting some sea air.
The estate offers an idyllic natural environment with accommodation in luxury modern en-suite rooms and cosy cabins set on the side of a lake. The heritage barn has been stunningly converted and provides an airy, bright space perfect for yoga and gathering.
The retreat will begin on Friday evening with a welcome class followed by a delicious dinner. Jess will then lead you through two classes on the Saturday in the beautiful barn shala. She will offer an uplifting, dynamic morning class to align body and breath, followed by breakfast.
During the day there will be plenty of time for walks, massage treatments, a trip out to the beach or curling up with a good book. There will be a delicious healthy lunch and the group will meet again in the late afternoon for a more restorative practice to delve deeper into the postures. In the evening the group will gather again for dinner in the barn and chats around the fire pit.
Jess will also weave daily healing sound baths into the schedule with her magical crystal bowls! You're in for a treat.
Arrival time on Friday 23 June will be from 4pm. Departure on Sunday 25 June will be at midday after a lake dip for those who fancy it, energising morning yoga and a nourishing brunch.

The charming treehouses, wooden cabins and bell tents are a short walk from the barn with views of the lake. The treehouses and cabins have en suite bathrooms and the bell tents share the high quality garden washroom facilities closeby.
Delicious healthy meals will be served throughout the retreat. Vegetarian delights to nourish body and soul using seasonal, organic vegetables, fruit, flowers and herbs picked daily from the West Lexham gardens.
I wanted to say that Jess Horn was a fantastic teacher. She is incredibly knowledgeable about yoga and I felt I learned a lot from her in terms of yoga theory as well as the physical exercise. She was also a lovely, fun and compassionate member of the group. So my overall rating for the retreat is EXCELLENT!Gill
