Bright, fresh, and spacious, rooms at Champneys Springs have a more modern style that’s both relaxing and ultra-comfortable. With beautiful surrounds, many of the accommodation have outside space, either a terrace or balcony, while others have some of the best views of the rolling parklands that surround the resort. All rooms are en suite, have a television, DVD, hairdryer, and telephone. Rooms are available on a shared twin and double or single basis.

This retreat is suitable for all abilities. The practices included are Yin yoga with essential oils and Sukham yoga. The teachings and practice of Sukham yoga will help you to become aware of the kind of thoughts and emotions you are hosting in the inner space. It will also provide you with a tool to deal with needs, resolution, and strength that allows growth.

Sukham is a cross between Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Kundalini yoga, sound therapy and dance, with a little bit of Shamanism mixed in. You will use all these sources of energy to fill the body with vibration and bring about a feeling of just being great. You will be guided by Sophie's fun classes. She will help encourage you to deepen your practice while leaving you feeling rejuvenated, revitalized, and grounded.

The workshops will take place first thing in the morning and late afternoon. This will leave you an ample amount of free time to make use of all the facilities in Champneys Springs. These workshops will take place in a private room and will be for the guests on this retreat only.

    10 out of 10

    "From arriving at the retreat, all my fears disappeared, and I was transported into a state of utter calm. The staff were welcoming, the surroundings beautiful, and the outside world switched off. Our first yoga session was enlightening, a lovely meet and greet followed by a lovely group of people - Kundalini yoga with oils, breathing and mantra to awaken the body and the mind. The rest of the weekend just followed with a serene atmosphere. Fantastically yummy healthy food, lots of laughing, and sharing with wonderful like-minded people, activities from gym classes to pool sessions, and obviously, wonderful yoga sessions with Sophie from Vinyasa to Yin and Vinyasa again. I came away from the weekend feeling truly rejuvenated and rested, my yoga practice deepened, and my self-awareness restored. I cannot recommend a retreat with Sophie enough."
