Champneys Spa Weekend

Weekend Yoga Retreat

4th – 6th October 2019

After a wonderful retreat for a sixth year at Champneys Henlow last Autumn, I am delighted to confirm that I will again be hosting a retreat from the Friday 4th – Sunday 6th October 2019 at this wonderful venue.

This retreat will be based exclusively on Dynamic Vinyasa Yoga, from the simpler through to more complex postures and how to move with control and finesse whilst synchronising breath and movement.

Between classes, practitioners can enjoy the facilities that Champneys has to offer, including a free Thalassotherapy session as well as a host of menu treatments making this a weekend to explore and indulge your senses in a luxurious environment, with great company and delicious, healthy food.

The weekends yoga covers the following;

  • Choreographed vinyasa sequences to focus the mind and hone the senses.
  • Dedicated classes that will focus on arm balances, inversions and backbends
  • Step-by-step instructions of postures so that everyone can work within their range and to their edge without pressure
  • Tips to improve your technique whether you’re new to that posture or looking to improve and/or explore a variation
  • How to utilise the breath for effective and controlled transitions, avoiding carelessness and thus reduce the chance of injury
  • The importance of core stability and the breathing to support the body’s structure. Practicing with intelligence, with regard for our physical limitations without being held back by them

This retreat is ideal for those who wish to explore challenging asana and is not therefore suitable for beginners. If you already have a strong practice, I will aim to provide variations to further challenge you and if there are difficult posture(s) that you have yet to master I will endeavour to make them more accessible by breaking them down.

The weekend costs £390 shared and £430 single occupancy and includes all yoga classes, accommodation, meals, use of the facilities and your complimentary Thalassotherapy session (please note that all other treatments are chargeable).
