Champneys, Britain’s home of health and wellbeing, opened its doors to the public in 1925. Since then, it’s grown to become one of the most well-respected spa destination brands worldwide. Customers love the focus on high-quality service, and the brand continues to go from strength to strength. From body wraps to boot camps, a Champneys health spa retreat is an indulgent pampering experience you’ll never forget!

It seems like our extremely toasty summer has flown by as we knock on Autumn’s door. This September, however, we’re approaching the new season in the best way possible, ‘cause it’s National Yoga Month!

Yoga – there really is no better way to strengthen your physical coordination whilst calming and invigorating your mental well-being.

Champneys is celebrating National Yoga Month by offering limited edition Yoga Spa Retreats, with classes in Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga and Kundalini practices, taught by a team of wonderful professionals who’ll aim to give you and your body the refresh and destress it needs!

Or perhaps yoga isn't totally your thing?! Well, not to worry, you can still relax and revitalize with one of our Champneys pampering experiences at one of their five spa destinations; Henlow, Forest Mere, Springs, Tring or Eastwell Manor.

Located in Henlow, Bedfordshire - the eccentric yet traditional Manor house is perfect for getaways.

Located in Liphook, Hampshire - Forest Mere is known for its beautiful countryside surroundings.

Located in Packington, Leicestershire - the Springs location is just right for a luxurious pamper-filled experience.

Located in Wigginton, Hertfordshire - Tring is where it all began! Champneys originality and innovation can be enjoyed by all here.

Located in Boughton Lees, Kent - Eastwell Manor is the dream spa hideaway. Located within the gorgeous Kent countryside, the Manor is flawless for every occasion.

Here at Experience Days, we want to jump on the bandwagon and find our inner zen. Therefore, in honour of National Yoga Month, we’ve put together our favourite yoga experiences which you too can get involved in (plus, read on for the chance to win an incredible Champneys Spa experience!)

Anti-gravity yoga. The name itself is head turning before you’ve even read the description or taken part in the experience! The Experience Days team love to find unique activities, so we’re very excited about our three anti-gravity yoga classes. Developed by professional dancer Christopher Harrison, this is definitely yoga with a twist. Harrison recognised that ordinary yoga doesn’t stretch one's joints as much as the hanging silks. His new innovative experience allows you to perform different bends and stretches while being supported by elevated silks that can also be used as a comfy hammock afterwards. It’s said to bring out your inner child or the elegance you never knew you had! There are a few options, including a private class for two or a class shared with other yoga lovers. The 60-minute yoga class in the heart of London will leave you feeling rejuvenated and free. 

Another one of our popular yoga classes is the Red Hot Yoga class in Surrey! This is a form of Hatha yoga that encourages detoxing through perspiration, releasing all toxins from your body. The hot environment helps you make the most of your yoga experience, providing a workout with multiple health benefits. The 90-minute class will help you find harmony while relaxing your mind and body.
