    Create Space Retreats

    Create Space Retreats provide an opportunity and environment where you will be able to enhance your practice and deepen your knowledge of yoga.

    All of our retreats to date have been in beautiful rural locations. For our 10th retreat, we are breaking with tradition and we have carefully chosen this beautiful coastal site in Seaford.

    Seaford Head is a Local Nature Reserve within the Sussex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. On the brow of Seaford Head sits Florence House set in 6 acres on the edge of the South Downs National Park. It stands rock solid in the sea air and surrounding wild landscape. In many ways it’s location is a metaphor for it’s life’s purpose – a haven for the spirit; however the wind blows.

    It’s a much loved venue for life enhancing workshops and retreats as it lovingly embraces divine inspiration, the sacredness and potential of each individual, and the healing power of the landscape in which it sits.

    About the Retreat

    The retreat leaders will introduce you to aspects of philosophy and practices that are often overlooked during general classes, and there will be the opportunity for you to have direct contact with the teachers and receive guidance for your personal practice.

    The program will include 2 x Yoga classes per day; early morning, evening meditation & satsang, a walking meditation, guided walks and talks/workshops on Yoga philosophy – plus free time to appreciate the gardens and local area.

    If you’ve yet to experience the magic of a Gong Bath; then you are in for a very special treat!

    Bathing us in waves of beautiful and timeless vibrations; the Gong Bath has been likened to a mini-vacation, in which we become both the bubble and the sea as we experience a sense of disappearing and reappearing, leading us to new beginnings and a fresh place of self-healing and self revelation.

    The powerful vibrations of the gong transport us to another level of being; a place where healing naturally occurs and the stresses of every day life are gently washed away.

    Enjoy feeling immersed in an unlimited, infinite sound space, bathed by fluid, ever-changing melodies and harmonies blended with grace and lightness. Allow the sounds and vibrations to deepen your feelings of connection to Source.

    Begin this special weekend in a perfect state of joy and bliss with a sense of increased vitality, calmness, balanced emotions and feelings of self-empowerment
