The yosemite bug is close to Yosemite National Park and there was plenty of time during the yoga retreat to spend time in Yosemite National Park. There is a spa and sauna and some great hiking close to the Yosemite Bug. Great location. The restaurant onsite serves amazing food. The yoga every morning was as always invigorating to prepare for the busy day in Yosemite. Meditation or relaxation yoga at night helped to wind down for the night. Great Location and Great yoga instructor.

Yosemite is one of my favorite places in the world and April was the the perfect month for it. This was our 2nd yoga retreat with Christy Pitko and we look forward to more in the future!

I'm not sure exactly what I was looking for, but I know my expectations were met and then exceeded. The location, the people, the food, everything was just incredible. I was ready to book my next trip before I left.

This yoga retreat was fabulous. Christie provides excellent yoga instruction. She always gives suggestions for modifications and the use of blocks so that all participants can safely practice. We learned more about the history of yoga and had some group discussion and meditation practices. The large windows in the yoga room allowed us to enjoy the outdoors and even watch a family of monkeys during one of our practices. RipJack Inn is an excellent location for this type of retreat. The grounds are lovely and the yoga studio is spacious and comfortable. The restaurant is lovely and the food amazing! The staff at RipJack are a wonderful group of people who served our high energy group with kindness and professionalism. The beach is just a short stroll away and there are beautiful shells to check. The sunsets are amazing! RipJack provided boogie boards and beach chairs at no charge. I have already put next year’s retreat on my calendar.

I had an absolutely wonderful time at Christie's yoga retreat. Christie is a wonderful yoga teacher, and is able to accommodate all yoga levels. I also learned new styles of yoga such as yoga nidra. The retreat was relaxing, rejuvenating, and I can't wait to attend another one. I just got photo memories of my retreat and realized I hadn't yet written a review for an experience that gave me emotional energy to get me through the pandemic; so wanted to be sure to write this review to highly recommend Christie's retreat!
