The programme offers nurture for all parts of your being – mind, body, emotions, and spirit.

It includes

  • meditation,
  • yoga,
  • deep relaxation,
  • shared time and time for personal reflection,
  • and the opportunity for a massage or other extra treatment if you wish.

We will welcome in the New Year with light-hearted fun and simple ceremony in the beautiful yurt, a celebratory bonfire and a walking meditation by the sea on New Year’s Day.

Also, we will be offering two workshops

. They will bring together our experience of the ancient wisdom of yoga. You will acquire practical tips and techniques to help you grow happier.

Florence House offers very comfortable accommodation and excellent vegetarian food.

As well as the main meeting room, library and cosy lounge area, the Yurt will be available for anyone wanting space for personal reflection.

There will also be plenty of time for walks on the beach or to explore the stunning scenery of the Seven Sisters Country Park.

Non-yogis are welcome to join us too, to enjoy all that Florence House and its lovely setting have to offer.

“Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend of illumination, reflection and cathartic realisation. I feel the better for it. It was such a relaxed, unjudging and positive environment where I felt safe and ready to move myself on. The location was amazing and I loved having the freedom to just walk out the door and walk 3 miles up a hill. Perfect!”


“There was a good balance between free time and organised sessions. I liked the freedom of both when needed. liked having various new things to try that I could take with me into a daily routine back at home. I felt that we got great value for our money in Jo’s retreat. Meals were fantastic, delicious and all cooked from scratch.  I liked the way we were all well catered for whatever our dietary requirements were”


“Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the new year retreat!  It was wonderful experiene for me and I am determined to continue with my meditation practice and re-start yoga.  Thank you so much for all your hard work to make it so perfect!”


“I just wanted to say thank you once again for what really was a beautiful retreat in so many ways.

It really was the perfect tonic to help rest and restore my body!

Leaving me in a much better place to be open to the joys (and the challenges) that may come my way this year…with a little help from myself and my own inner passion of course.. I thank you and all the very special people I met on the retreat from right deep inside my heart.”
