    Each of the rooms in Florence House is individually decorated to create a calm and simple space for you to enjoy a great night’s sleep free from TV or radio distractions. There are choices of rooms from singles to triples based on your needs. All bedrooms have lovely scenic views either of the Downs or the Estate. The House provides the perfect base to explore the Southdowns and Coast line and is within walking distance of Seaford Head and its magnificent sea views.

    The beautiful interior of the house itself, the abundant garden, the proximity to the sea and the wildness of the Downs, make Florence House a much loved venue for life enhancing workshops and retreats. In essence, it lovingly embraces divine inspiration, the good and meaningful things of life, the sacredness and potential of each individual and the healing power of the landscape in which it sits. The walled garden provides a peaceful place for meditation or inner reflection. Florence House stands within its own private grounds so there is no one to disturb their program.

    Yoga with Khadine will be returning to Florence House for the 4th year running. With exclusive occupancy, they can create their own mood and atmosphere. The weekend will be packed full of yoga in the wonderful spacious yoga room and meditation and mantra in the evenings in a most beautiful yurt.

    On the brow of Seaford Head, Sussex, sits Florence House set in 6 acres within an area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of the South Downs National Park and has views of Seaford Head and Seaford Head Golf Course. 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, retreats, weddings and conferences. 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.

    Nestled at the bottom of the wild garden, The Florence House Yurt is an invaluable addition to the house providing a place of tranquility and peace. It is ideal for meditation and intimate gatherings complete with comfy cushions and a wood burning stove. There are magical places within the gardens and where guests can take advantage of these areas for activities, ceremonies and rituals as well as fun and games.

      "Thank you Khadine! it was such a wonderful weekend, i enjoyed every minute. My feelings about my yoga practice have changed because of you - i realise it's less about the destination, the end result, the ultimate most difficult yoga pose and all about the journey, the practice, the moment, the now. And really there is no end anyway ! I probably knew that already but had been distracted and waylaid by wanting to be the best, to push myself too fast into the most challenging positions. Within i feel re-energised, stronger, more focused, opened up physically and spiritually, and i feel taller!! I hope this awareness spills over not just into the rest of this week but into next week, and the one after, and the one after that and onwards. "

      "Thank you for a lovely weekend it was just the break I needed & everything was just right. The setting was glorious, the weather perfect & I loved the food, even though I never eat that healthily normally! I especially enjoyed your classes & the quiet time it was bliss to just lie in the grass and gaze at the sky my soul really needed it. I love your classes, you have just the right touch and know intuitively when to push it & when postures need to be more nurturing. Thanks again for a great weekend."

      "Khadine provided a wonderful balance of yoga, meditation, and breathing instruction and practice that went perfectly with the idyllic surroundings of Gayles. Little takes my mind out of the business of life like her teaching. We couldn't have wished for better weather, which allowed comfortable use of the pool, hammocks and footpaths, but even without this added bonus, it was a wonderful weekend."

      "I have also been meaning to drop an email anyway to say how wonderful, challenging, and transformative the Florence weekend was. Thanks so much for creating such a great space to come back to myself and set new and better patterns in motion in my life. I can't say every day is exactly zen! But I feel the mindfulness practice in particular that we did, has reminded me of / strengthened my "anchor" inside."

      "I wanted to email you anyway to say a huge THANK YOU for another fantastic weekend, it really was blissful. I arrived with earache, headache, period pain and it all faded away during the weekend, and I felt incredibly nourished. I enjoyed it even more than last year. of all those incredible deep and wonderful restorative/yin postures...they are so fantastic. It came just at the right time . I've been coping much better than I normally would and I'm sure its partly down to the lovely weekend I had. The weather was perfect too this year...I feel very blessed to have been part of such a lovely gathering of beautiful women with you leading us all."

      "I just wanted to thank you again for the most amazing weekend, I was chatting to J today and we both felt that it was one of the best times we have ever had, with the combination of the beautiful surroundings, wonderful yoga and delicious cakes! I feel really privileged to have been there, you are such an inspiring teacher and I came home feeling totally relaxed and rejuvenated. I am doing my best to carry what I have experienced with me and be mindful and peaceful as I go back to everyday life!"

      "I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you again as well as your students for making me feel welcome at the retreat back in August, and you would be pleased to know that all me work colleagues and customers alike have noticed a massive change in my character in that I am now much calmer and more resilient than before. I now practice the meditation you taught me every day including chanting some of the Sanskrit mantras, and the candle flame concentration exercise was amazing."
