About this trip

Going on retreat offers an opportunity to let down the stresses of life, to be nourished by the north woods, and deepen your yoga, meditation, and pranayama practices. In the September retreat you will learn Ayurvedic  lifestyle and practice recommendations to align harmoniously with the season, so your health and well-being may flourish.

The Christine Center, 3 hours northwest from Madison, is nestled in the tranquil woods of northern Wisconsin on 125 acres, offering a nurturing and supportive environment for deepening practice and connection. The retreat center is run by a group of Franciscan nuns and for 30 years has been a center open to all paths of faith and spirituality.


(10-hours of continuing education are available for Yoga Alliance registered teachers)

I’m an Ayurvedic health counselor, yoga and meditation teacher, and neurovascular therapist living in Madison, Wisconsin. I have been in private practice and teaching since 2000. My classes and retreats integrate Ayurvedic wisdom, meditation and a mindful approach to asana that brings attention to anatomy, optimal alignment, strength, breath, and inner awareness. This practice cultivates abounding health in body and mind while inspiring you to live a more grounded and compassionate life. I offer a variety of trainings, workshops, and retreats, both locally and abroad. I have a deep love for travel, local food, and spending time with my pitbull Lucy. I look forward to working together. Gratefully, Andrea P.S. Head over to http://andrearussell.com/about/ to get my full story!

Wonderful weekend. Amazing food and excellent instruction. Will be back!
A very meaningful experience. Andrea and Sheryl were a great combination. They really complimented each other. I especially liked and appreciated the Zen teachings and interpretation. Christine Center was also wonderful as usual. Great food!!! Thank you.
Andrea is a master teacher and a lovely human. My experience was nothing less than transformational. I look forward to the next time I can practice with her at another retreat.
