SEAFORD / L&E Wolf Pack Gathering for Innovative Teachers


I’m just a little bit overwhelmed and so darn excited to finally be able to offer you this marvellous weekend.

Over the past year I’ve orchestrated three one day workshops under the umbrella term of ‘The Artist’s Date’ - all as ground work and in someway anticipation of this retreat. I wanted to see what my experience was of creating this work and whether there was a call for it before I took it to the next stage.

Well the feedback to be frank, has been nothing less than phenomenal and it has been a total joy to curate and experience.

The Artist’s Dates workshops and this weekend (and my mentoring if I’m honest), have all been born out of a growing dissatisfaction and frustration with the dogmatic world of yoga. I began to feel isolated and misunderstood, very confused about what I wanted to teach and who would want to learn from me. I wanted to investigate if and how yoga still served me in my life beyond the landscape of what I was experiencing. All of the workshops were born from the question ‘what if we could use yoga as a springboard for further exploration into our unique and hard wired need for creativity and self expression?’

It’s with great joy that I can now offer you this weekend. It will be unlike anything else I’ve ever organised, I can feel that in my bones!

Is this for you?

Do you wonder what yoga has to do with anything?

Do you find yourself wondering often if you still want to teach?

Do you wonder regularly if you’re doing it all wrong?

Do you find yourself thinking regularly that there must be more to it?

Do you ever feel stuck/ bored/ rebellious/ isolated/ like the black sheep and like you often want to scream endlessly into your pillow at the thorough dissonance of it all…

Do you want to explore and learn and grow as a person both within and outside of the world of yoga and not feel so squeezed and labelled endlessly?

Then this is probably for you.

Facilitators are still to be announced but rest assured they’ll be pretty amazing. Naturally. x

About Florence House

On the brow of Seaford Head, Sussex, sits Florence House; rock solid in the sea air and surrounding wild landscape. 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.

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 retreats and workshops involving personal development and transformation.


Florence House can accommodate 24 people and there are a choice of rooms from singles to triples based on your needs. All bedrooms have lovely scenic views either of the Downs or the Estate.

The venue supplies all bedlinen and towels.


As much as possible all the food is grown within the gardens or locally sourced.

TURKEY / Suleyman's Garden Retreat
to Jul 13

TURKEY / Suleyman's Garden Retreat


Magical & Wild Turkey

a complete return to nature July 6th-13th 2020


“It was a week of my entire system and each of my 72’000 cells individually and collectively unfurling, growing lighter, brighter, clearer and more full of love than ever before…I still feel magnificent and am moving more lightly and freely with each step and breath. I’ve been keeping up the breathwork and sea swimming too - roll on 2020 - and everything and anything you bring to weave your magic”

-Emily 2019

“Just a quick email to thank you so so very much for the most wonderful week in Turkey. I have been thoroughly spoilt for my first experience of a yoga retreat and I loved every single minute of it. I feel lighter, clearer and more at ease than I have felt in such a long time. I adored your practices, learnt so much more than I thought I would .. it was like a mini training. After feeling a little ‘stayed’ in my own practice and my teaching I have a renewed passion for where my yoga will go .. completely unknown but that’s exciting!! It was the most magically nourishing and nurturing time ever!!

- Vicky 2019

“Quite simply the best yoga retreat I have ever been on. Richer, fuller, deeper and all encompassing.”

- Greg 2014

"I felt so clear and determined when I arrived in London last Saturday. Naomi, your work definitely has effects beyond the body, I felt with the energy and power of a dragon when I arrived to my normal day to day life which is absolutely uncommon in me."

- Gabriela 2018

"Thanks so much for the last week, it really was incredible. I'm so happy to have found a teacher that is basically packaging up all of the things I'm interested in - an amazing set of practices with heavy weight knowledge and experience to back it all up"

 - Jonathan 2018


Suleyman's Garden is an incredible venue which offers the best of everything you could possibly want for a yoga retreat - sunsets over dinner, mountain views, clear blue waters to swim in, shady spots to lounge in, plus a beautiful space with a cool breeze to practice in. It is right in the middle of nature, it's quite hard to articulate the powerful effects of this - but trust me, it's special. You will feel it. 

Attendees can look forward to two sessions of transformative yoga practices a day; a powerful, dynamic and creative morning practice followed later on by a mixture of restorative, breath workshops, yin, and meditative sessions.

The retreat includes three vegetarian meals a day - the vast majority of food prepared is actually grown by Suleyman himself who lives and works on the land. It is delicious, varied, plentiful and full of nourishment. 

In between practices most people head off down the track to a truly beautiful stretch of unspoiled coastline and swim in the sea. We spend the day chilling in the shade, lounging on the rocks and swimming and snorkelling before coming up for our evening practices. 

This retreat will challenge you, guide you, help you to release some of the things that bind you and get you ready to move forward into the rest of your life – a fitter, healthier and happier YOU!

Most people arrive on yoga retreats on their own - which is perfectly normal and totally acceptable! In terms of accommodation we can pair you with someone wonderful or you can stay in your own cabin and have some space to yourself. Very little time is spent in the rooms but regardless - there is so much space around, everyone gets time to themselves whenever they want it!

£965 in twin ensuite (£865 until May 13th) -

£965 in single cabin (£865 until May 13th) -
