About Florence House

The gardens
On the brow of Seaford Head, East Sussex, sits Florence House rock solid in the sea air and surrounding wild landscape. In many ways its situation is a metaphor for its life’s purpose - a haven for the spirit however the wind blows. It’s a much loved venue for life enhancing workshops and retreats. In essence, it lovingly embraces divine inspiration, the sacredness and potential of each individual and the healing power of the landscape in which it sits. 

There are beautiful places within the gardens and we encourage guests to take advantage of these areas. Our aim is to create a unique, nurturing environment where you can rest, restore and relax.

Hatha and Restorative Yoga are slow and steady paced styles of yoga that work to address the balance of the nervous system to help instill calmness. We will use props to support the body so the mind can rest enabling you to fully relax.

Dynamic Yoga is faster paced than Hatha yoga and works by generating heat within the body allowing your muscles to stretch whilst they strengthen. A more gentle form of Dynamic yoga than Ashtanga yoga that is suitable for all abilities.

Pilates is very effective in strengthening both the abdominal and lower back area as it works by creating stability within the body. We will work through a number of Pilates movements and variations using Pilates exercise balls and bands.
