Brexit and how it affects your travel

2017 - for those of you already registered for summer 2017 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!

Debbie, My wife had a lovely time at Champneys with Joanna & yoga..  Thanks to all..  Will be back.  She loved it ALL.  Rory MacLeod


I'd just like to underline how enjoyable the yoga retreat at Champney's was. The staff were very
friendly, the accommodation and food excellent, and the yoga challenging but relaxing. This was also the first holiday I have booked through Free Spirit and I was impressed by the courtesy and efficiency of you and your colleagues.
So a great success! My only complaint is that the weekend was too short
- another day would have been wonderful!
Best wishes Jo Lateu


Hi there, Please could you book me a place on the above weekend and send me the booking paperwork. I went on this same retreat last May, and it (and the amazing Brigitte ) was so fabulous that I just have to go again!



Dear Ken and Emily, Thank you both so much for facilitating such a great start to 2014! I can't remember that last time my shoulders felt so free........How I wish I had a recording of the sessions to use at home. It was a great group and venue. All the Yoga sessions were fabulous, and I particularly enjoyed the floor work. A wonderful moving meditation with such calm and clear instruction that its possible to work with your eyes closed and really feel whats going on inside
