Brexit and how it affects your travel

2018 - for those of you already registered for summer 2018 and beyond please  be aware that the venue may increase their costs to us for next season due to exchange rate changes and if this happens we will, sadly, have to pass the increase on to you. We would expect the increases to be minimal.

Some prices have risen due to exchange rates - sorry!

Updates - flight delays


My flight has been delayed. Can I get compensation?

Also read the following

Airlines don't have to pay out for delays caused by snow because weather is classified as an "extraordinary circumstance" – though some airlines may issue a refund at their discretion. For those of you flying to India you are almost certainly on a non EU airline so contact them direct to see exactly what you are entitled to.

According to Which magazine you can challenge your airline if you don't agree there were extraordinary circumstances – for example, if you are told you can't fly due to the snow, but other flights are departing. "Airlines may stretch the definition of extraordinary circumstances further than they should."

Which Magazine  states:-

If the delay is not caused by extraordinary circumstances you will be entitled to compensation under EU rules, but only if you are flying with an airline based in the EU or with a non-EU-based airline flying from an EU airport, and only if the delay is for two hours or more. If you are flying somewhere else or with a non-EU-based airline not flying from the EU you'll have to check that carrier's terms and conditions.

If you are delayed for two hours or more you are entitled to: two free phone calls, faxes or e-mails; free food and drinks; and free hotel accommodation if you need to stay overnight.

If your flight arrives at its destination three hours or more late you will receive compensation of between €250 and €600, depending on how far your flight takes you. So you'll get €250 if your three hour-delayed flight travels 1,500km or less (ie, London to Amsterdam), but €600 if your plane is delayed by four hours or more and travels at least 3,500km (ie, London to Sydney).

My flight has been cancelled. Will I get my money back?

If your flight is cancelled you should be offered either a refund or an alternative flight to your original destination.

For compensation you will have to look to the EU rules again, though if the delay is caused by snow – and thus an extraordinary circumstance – you might not get anything. If you are covered by EU regulations you will be entitled to travel assistance (such as help with rebooking for a later date) as well as meals and accommodation etc. Check the official EU website for more on your rights.

All weeks run by Hannah & Charlie are in Aid of Charity

This Champneys Spa Henlow Grange retreat would benefit Rise charity, supporting women affected by domestic violence and abuse. The effects of yoga can be transformative, especially for people experiencing anxiety, trauma, depression or illness. Our non-profit model means we run retreats and workshops for paying customers, and then use our profits to fund free of charge yoga for charities and vulnerable groups.

The Yoga

The yoga on this weekend will be suitable for all abilities, from the beginner to the more experienced yogi. We will have time to take our yoga at a steady pace, exploring breathwork, meditation, and a range of yoga styles. These will include gentle Hatha yoga, a more dynamic Vinyasa flow practice, plus some deeply restorative yoga. Our approach is inclusive and encouraging, allowing time for personal adjustments, and opportunities to explore poses, develop your confidence and really deepen your practice
 

Hannah Lee Weller

Hannah's background is as a dancer and choreographer, and she has studied, taught and produced dance work for over 20 years. She always enjoyed yoga practice alongside this, and the natural progression was to develop her skills and become a qualified teacher, training in Hatha and Vinyasa Flow yoga.  She enjoys bringing her influences of dance, anatomy, yoga philosophy and breath work to her yoga classes. She is particularly interested in how we can develop the skills of yoga beyond the mat, and integrate them into our daily lives.
