Perfect timing given all that is going on the world. I found it incredibly comforting and helpful to practice in community with superb guidance from Andrea and Cheryl. The Christine Center is truly sacred space.
As usual my experience is better each time I get to be a part of Andrea’s retreats! The food at The Christine Center is so delicious and nutritious I want to learn how to cook like they do there! Sheryl was a perfect addition to this retreat. I’ve never met her before and she is such a smart woman and explains things so well. I’d actually like to talk to her one on one! Thank you Andrea and Sheryl for being a great team. I learn more every visit! Love, Sid?
Thank you for a great retreat! Your knowledge and understanding of human anatomy was insightful and beneficial. You created a wonderful environment for stretching our hearts and minds.
Andrea's attention to detail made everything about the experience flow without a hitch. Once at the retreat center, which was beautiful, quiet and supportive to relaxation and reflection, Andrea provided a balance of structure and down time. The food was delicious and healthy. The environment stunning and breathtaking. The leader was skillful, accommodating to the needs of the diverse group of learners. Without hesitation, I highly recommend!
Andrea Russell was fantastic as a yoga and ayurveda instructor. The retreat was well organized, inspiring and intimate.

My time at the Christine Center for Andrea's retreat was just wonderful. I came away not just feeling refreshed and centered, but with actual tools to move forward with...and so much to think about! Andrea embodies all of the things she talks about, you can see it...feel it. Her knowledge of Ayurveda, the body, nature, and how it all ties into each other, is incredible. Anyone who has the opportunity to experience learning from Andrea should make it a priority to do so!
