    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.

  • Tao Porchon-Lynch – The Dance of Life Within Us

    Posted Feb 9th, 2013 By in Archives With | No Comments
    West Sussex
    Fri 28th – Sun 30th June 2013

       Exclusive Yoga Retreat with Tao Porchon-Lynch

    This is an opportunity of a lifetime to spend some quality time immersed in the practice of yoga with the truly inspirational and enchanting  94 year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch.

    TaoNYAs one of the world’s oldest yoga teachers, Tao is living proof that a regular yoga practice, combined with a positive outlook on life may be key to ageing well. This remarkable woman has been involved with yoga since her childhood in India and has been teaching the subject for 42 years.

    Tao believes that the body can reycle itself, and following hip replacement surgery a  number of years ago, her doctors warned her that she might not be able move like she used to. Thanking them for their advice, she didn’t let that stop her yoga practice, and at the grand young age of 84, she also became a competitive ballroom dancer!

    Tao says “Yoga is the dance of life within us, and if I can teach yoga and do a good job, I can help others as much as I can help myself. I have got as much from my students as they have from me. I consider them to be my jewels. Inside of me is the creation of life, and if I can awaken that inside of me, there is nothing I cannot do! I’m going to dance and do yoga for as long as I live.”

    Over the past few years, Tao has become a huge inspiration to thousands of people around the globe and despite having had both her hips replaced – twice in one instance – she continues to travel the world sharing her gentle wisdom and life’s experiences.

    At a youthful 94, Tao brings a delightful, childlike love of life and nature to all that she does. Prepare to be enchanted and inspired if you’re blessed to have the opportunity to meet her.

    Watch her in action, and be inspired!


    Tao will lead yoga classes throughout the weekend, interspersed with talks and question and answer sessions. There will also be ample time to enjoy exploring the beautiful grounds of our stunning venue.

    This will be Tao’s 4th event for Naked Dragon and with her ever growing fan base in the UK and Europe, the very limited places on this intimate retreat will sell out very quickly.
