Go Yoga Retreats UK Yoga Retreat Itinerary

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.
