The Serenity Retreat: Scaravelli-Inspired Yoga & Somatic Techniques for Calm.

Friday 9th – Sunday 11th February 2024 (2 nights / 3 days)

The focus of this brief weekend retreat is on embracing ‘serenity’ through a unique blend of practices and techniques that promote a sense of wholeness, balance, and peace. Scaravelli yoga and somatic approaches, with their distinct goals and benefits, work together to influence the body and breath, stimulate the nervous system, and reconnect us with our bodies. Yet, they both share the common aim of creating a meditative, intuitive, and sensory space where we can rest, discover, and grow.

The Venue

Only an hour and a half away from London, Florence House is the perfect venue for those who are keen to undergo an intense but relaxing weekend yoga experience, offering guests luxurious comfort, delicious vegetarian food and great service in beautiful settings on the south coast of England.

On the brow of Seaford Head, East Sussex, sits Florence House, kissed by sea air and surrounded by a rolling wild landscape. The beautiful interior of the house itself, the abundant gardens, the proximity to the sea and the wildness of the Downs make Florence House ideal for my yoga retreats. The house is set on 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. The beach is a 2-minute walk away.

Florence House offers rooms individually decorated to create a calm and simple space for you to enjoy a peaceful and quiet yoga weekend. There is a choice of rooms from singles to triples based on your needs. All the bedrooms have lovely scenic views either of the Downs or the Estate’s private gardens.
