The solitude & the Beauty of the surroundings here at Land Of Medicine Buddha was beyond breathtaking. This is a must see place for anyone traveling near the SF Bay Area. It’s worth the trip. You can stop in for the day or stay the weekend. I Highly recommend.
Christie hosts wonderful yoga retreats! This is my second "Christie" retreat and it was more of everything in every way than I expected -- great location and venue, delicious food and a wide variety of meditation and yoga practices rounded out the great weekend. I plan to attend future retreats with Christie and you should, too!
What an amazing weekend! First, Christie was super as both a yoga instructor and meditation guide. We we comfortable in our rooms, the food was delicious and healthy and the surrounding area was a perfect setting to decompress from the rat race. Highly recommended for those curious (or serious) about meditation and yoga.

The yoga/meditation combination was fantastic for this retreat. I loved Christie's gentle guidance in leading the group through the yoga poses regardless of their level making it easier to accomplish even the difficult poses with confidence. The venue was the best and most perfect I've ever been for a yoga retreat and in a addition the rooming quarters roomy and comfy. The vegetarian meals were a plus and I when I returned home I continued to make veggie meals at home even though I am not a total vegetarian - so healthy! I would definitely return to this venue for another one of Christie's yoga retreats. I left the retreat feeling restored, energized and reflective of my practice.
Christie hosted the most beautiful retreat. The location, the amenities & the food were all beyond my expectations but the true gift was having Christie thoughtfully guide us through yoga (therapeutic, vinyasa, & yoga nidra) & meditation. Her teaching style was comforting, welcoming & accessible to all levels. She was careful to make sure she spent time having genuine conversations will all attendees. I look forward to retreating with her again!
