Take Time to Rest
"I drifted home with a lovely sense of having been welcomed to a very special group"
Pickeridge Farm Studio
Cob Lane, Ardingly, RH17 6ST
What to expect
Welcome to Sunday Slowdown, 2 hour Restorative Yoga classes held once a month in the beautiful Sussex countryside, to give yourself time to rest and recalibrate.
Someone once described Restorative Yoga to me by likening it to a baby being held in it's parents arms, and feeling so safe and secure that they are able to completely relax. In these Restorative classes the props and the space create that feeling of safety, so that your body and mind are able to rest and recharge. Each class will include 3 to 5 postures, fully supported so that there is no effort needed by your muscles. More rejuvenating than a nap!
The classes will be inspired by the cues that nature gives us, nurturing any seeds or ideas that we may want to grow in the coming Spring months, and then supporting their growth as we move towards summer. The society that we live in champions always needing to achieve more, and considers resting to equal laziness. Therefore, choosing to rest is a radical act, and honours rather than ignores the natural need of the body to rest.
Pickeridge Farm Studio is a new, purpose built studio, and is a wonderfully secluded hidden gem. It offers a unique opportunity to escape without having to travel far from home. Access is via an outdoor staircase, and the studio offers stunning views over the Sussex countryside.
Pickeridge Farm is a small diversified family farm and is situated between the villages of Ardingly and West Hoathly, in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in West Sussex.
I can't wait to share the gifts of Restorative Yoga with you, and this special, tucked away location.
PLEASE BRING A BLANKET AND MUG!
Maximum class size 6 people.

After parking, walk back up to Pickeridge Farm House, and enter via the main gate.
