Yoga at Manor Farm, East Sussex

Quote of the day

When a seeker reaches the right state, the Divine sends someone in human form to that person. In this way the true path of spirituality can never vanish from the Earth. If it did, it would be the end of humanity itself. If all the books and all the scriptures were destroyed or thrown into the sea, this path would still remain. The description of this path comes at a late stage in books but even before that it arises in the hearts of men. It is a natural process of human development. At one stage everyone wants to be peaceful and happy and then the seeking starts by itself. As before the birth of the child there is milk in the breast of the mother, so, before the seeking starts, someone appears to show the path. There is nothing to be worried about. Just be happy and enjoy yourselves!

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.
