Rex believes Yoga should be accessible to everyone regardless of age or ability and designs his classes to accommodate all levels and abilities where possible.
Rex’s interest and fascination with science led him to study Applied Biology at Trent University. After Trent his second passion, which was travelling, led him to spend 2 years in Central and East Asia where he spent time trekking through the Himalayas reaching the Thong La Pass at 5500m in Nepal.
While in India, Rex had the honour of meeting His Holiness the Dali Lama and received treatments from his Tibetan Physician Yeshi Dhonden. He also did a Buddhist Meditation and Philosophy course at Tushita Retreat. Rex’s love & passion of yoga and eastern philosophy blossomed in India and he has practiced this ever since.
On his return to the UK, Rex enrolled on a 3 year Diploma in Shiatsu Massage, a form of traditional Chinese medicine and Japanese acupressure. Rex was invited to start a clinic at Gayton Road Medical Centre practicing Complimentary Therapy and went on to have his own clinic in Kings Lynn and Wells Next-Sea. Over the last 20 years Rex has purposefully continued to add to his skill set studying different styles of Yoga at a more in-depth level as well as Neural Linguistic Programming (NLP), Life/Professional Coaching and Reiki to Masters Level.
The classes Rex provides are a mix of Hatha, Vinyasa Flow and with his Chinese medicine background Yin Yoga (before Yin Yoga was even a term). Rex considers Pranayama breath work and the movement of energy through the subtle body (Kriya Yoga) a key part of his classes. Rex often themes his workshops and classes, whether it be hip-opening and core, Detox or Chakras but the underlying theme always is health and vitality alongside personal growth. Rex is famous for his Deep Relations (Shavasana) at the end of his classes.
We have no doubt you will enjoy every minute of your Yoga retreat at Ash Tree Barns with Rex at the helm and leave feeling refreshed and energised.

The story behind VanVino…
Johnny initially took the ‘sensible’ route in life, with a corporate career. But, during board meetings, he would often find his mind wandering back to his upbringing in a large, close-knit family of food and drink connoisseurs, history buffs and storytellers. They loved nothing more than after-dinner get-togethers to entertain each other with large tales over small snifters. It was during one of these mind-wandering nights that the idea for VanVino was born and Johnny immediately started plotting his great corporate escape to the life he dreamed of. However, it would be many years and quite a journey before VanVino became a reality. The rest, as they say, is history-in-the-making…
