Thank you so much to Christie Pitko for creating such a wonderful retreat experience. Her skills as a teacher are above and beyond precise, welcoming and allow so much space as a student to be exactly where you are at yet feel challenged at the same time. The hotel was magical and the food was abundant and incredibly delicious! I left feeling regenerated and reinspired in my practice and look forward to finding more of her classes!

Such a great trip. Really cool lodge, beautiful scenery. The instructor, Christie Pitko, was fantastic. And the other members of the group were warm and personable!

It was absolutely wonderful. Will definitely book again for next year. I really enjoyed the classes, the company and especially the food. Would suggest mentioning when meeting with attendees the Friday meet/greet that they need to squeeze into the space, so when putting down their mats for the first time, to be aware of it. Such a minor critique, but it being my first yoga retreat, I ended up wedged up on the wall and wasn't 100% sure of protocol. Loved every minute and wished it was 1 day longer, to be honest! See you next year!
I had an amazing time With Christie! The location was perfect to get away and relax. My meditation and yoga practice benefited from her experience and energy. As a yoga instructor, I am always looking to gain different perspective and insights. She opened my eyes to help me see deeper into my practice.

What an awesome location at the beautiful green rolling hills at IONS in Petaluma, and the yoga and meditation retreat was a deeply, enriching experience filled with many insights and healing on many levels. I highly recommend attending, and Christie was a fabulous facilitator. I hope to attend more in the future!
