So, to achieve bliss one should withdraw from the world of pleasure through the senses. Now, you may ask the question: Then for what purpose are these senses given to us by God? The senses are given to us for a definite purpose. The purpose is: Use them, but do not misuse them. It is quite simple: the difference between use and misuse. A balance must be found, and you have to find it in all things.
Our yearly yoga retreat at Manor Farm will be on 19-21 September.
Lucie will be running another British Wheel of Yoga Teacher Training Diploma Course with Paul Riddy from November 2014 (Introduction day 3rd August).
A website of Lucie's spiritual teacher Gurudev Shri O.Sharma is now opened and regularly updated with new discourses (Satsangs). If you are interested to know more please click here.
We have also started publishing small books on various spiritual topics taken from our teacher's Satsangs. So far we have published topics Love, Attachement & Detachment, Meditations, Ego, The Aim of life and Spirituality & Religion.

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.
