Put some Zen into your Hen Do

An enjoyable hen party doesn’t have to involve knocking back Prosecco and forgetting the cab journey home.  As we embrace a healthier lifestyle, many of us would much rather a stylish and refined hen do, one with a little more zen and a lot less of the hangover!

Here are some ideas from Fizzbox.com on how to put the zen into your hen do:


Why not add a yoga session to your hen do and relax and unwind before your big day. There are lots of new innovative ways to enjoy this ancient form of exercise, from Yoga at the Shard in London to Disco yoga and of course not forgetting enjoying a yoga class abroad.

You and your hens can breathe and stretch out all of the tension that you may have accumulated from all of the wedding planning.  Leaving you to focus solely on yourself and being in the moment with your closest friends and family.


Budapest is a great place to recharge and unwind, pairing old and new – this stunning European city features dozens of spas and thermal bath complexes served by natural thermal springs. It’s known as the City of Spas and will be a perfect place to head to, to add some zen into the festivities

Afternoon Tea

If you are looking for an indulgent way to enjoy your hen do then an afternoon tea activity could be just for you!
