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!

Hi Divya, Thank you for a fabulous weekend. The yoga was perfect and the pace just right. It was lovely to meet both you and all those other lovely people. I hope that we get the chance to do it all again. I am certainly feeling very relaxed and somewhat looser. Definitely a great thing to do at the beginning of December.
All the very best and thanks again. Liz x

Hi Divya, Thank you again for sharing  such a wonderful weekend with us. I truly felt I had come home with your teachings.  I didn't want to take too much of your time, but just to say as it was my first "class" for a least six weeks I felt "held" and safe and now feel really ready again to return to my teachers.
That aside I also feel relaxed and ready to return to normal life, I do so with a clear mind and a better connection to my self. Such a pleasure to spend time with you and your amma, it added a certain something, a grounding, an appreciation of relationships and support.
I wish you well, and I am glad our paths finally crossed. I realise I am already on your mailing list!

Hi David,
As I didn't catch you before I left, thanks for an inspiring and enjoyable weekend at Champneys.  Looking forward to coming to another another event soon and in the meantime will try and remember to breathe and eat chocolate mindfully (even if it is torture!).

All the best David, Andix (New Year with David Sye)
