The transition from yoga to the forest - moving from my mat to the floor of the forest felt seamless. In both places I was in my body, rooted and connected, at peace with the world, and myself.

"Such an enjoyable day filled with great yoga moves (pleased to say that my spine feels v good today!), lovely food and delightful countryside and company."

Alex a yoga class newbie

“I find Julie’s workshops nourishing and enjoyable every time. It begins for me with the drive from London which takes me through gorgeous countryside arriving at the Yoga Hub to a warm welcome with a cup of coffee, homemade biscuits and the joy of seeing old friends and meeting new.

Julie seamlessly weaves the theme of the workshop together with what we each need.  I leave feeling re-fueled, relaxed and looking forward to the next one!”

Rekindle your relationship with yourself and nature on one of our

seasonal workshops

What to expect....

Every season has its own special energy, with its particular lessons to teach us if only we take the time to pause and listen. This changing quality, inherent in the year's cycle, is reflected in the style of both our yoga practice and menu

 

The yoga will open up a dialogue between your body and its surroundings - you will be invited to connect to the calm and easy flow of your breath, taking you into a mindful state to self-soothe and nurture. A vegetarian lunch will be prepared with produce that's all locally grown and sourced.

Real food that feeds the body and soul with no fads. 

Tune in with a walk in the heart of the East Sussex countryside. 

Is it for you?

Suitable for beginners and intermediates. If you are curious about the benefits of yoga, want to take better care of yourself, and are looking for some practical workable ideas that you can integrate into your busy life, this is for you.

Not suitable if you are allergic to dogs or cake!!

 Such a great day on Saturday. It was a very enjoyable yoga session and I have really taken away lots of your tips and I am getting so much more out of  'down dog' pose - first time someone has actually taught me how to get into that position properly!
Your food was sooooo delicious - loved it all. 
The da
y felt like a real treat so thanks again and hope to see you again soon
