Yoga at Manor Farm, East Sussex

Quote of the day

We all want some sort of arrangement, some environment and circumstances conducive to a comfortable life; a fine house, a car, enough money, good people looking after us, good food prepared at the right time, people coming with respect to us, smiling and then washing our clothes, and asking us if we are all right. If there were such assurances from others, life would be very nice. It would be heaven. This world would become heaven, everybody taking care of you and you having no responsibility and no stress. These things are not going to happen. Sorry - never in anybody's life. My suggestion is that you should try to go beyond these dualities of liking and disliking, of good and bad. Then the problem will be solved permanently.

We believe that yoga is not just a set of physical exercises but an attitude to life. Part of this attitude is the importance of service to others. To this end, we have partly converted our family house into a yoga centre, in the heart of the Sussex countryside.


Our Oast house has accommodation for up to 15 people, and a large barn has been converted into a fully equipped yoga studio. The centre is set in 16 acres of land in a quiet and secluded area. The garden consists of fields, woods, a series of ponds, and an organic kitchen garden, which provides most of the ingredients for the vegetarian food that we cook here.


In this setting we run workshops and residential retreats. We see yoga as one way to develop an awareness of our inner selves and increase inner peace and happiness. This in turn helps to improve our performance in daily life and our relationships with those around us.


Lucie who leads most of the courses at Manor Farm is a British Wheel of Yoga qualified teacher and Yoga Teacher Diploma Course Tutor. She spends several months a year in India with her spiritual teacher. When in England she leads yoga workshops, retreats and training courses.
