I met great people on this trip, I felt at home and welcomed The Yoga was inspiring and exactly what I needed from the trip. I loved the location and the food was amazing.
The semi-rustic airs of Sierra Hot Springs, mixed with Christie Pitko's Yoga, made for a fabulous retreat. Plus the people who attend are just lovely human beings. Get off your hamster wheel and go to Christie Pitko's Retreat in the high Sierra mountains beside one of the largest valley's in the western United States. Populated mainly by cattle and surrounded by mountains. Take a hike or soak your bones in healing waters in the forest. Have a massage or loll with a good book in a body hugging couch beside a fire. The food is wonderful and locally sourced, cooked fresh every day. (desserts are scrummy!) And the yoga and meditation are catered for any level, making you feel super awesome afterwards. Thanks so much. I'll be back!
Had an awesome time in Sayulita with Christie and the group!
This was my first yoga retreat and the bar was set high! It truly was a magical time...the hotel was superb and very clean with great friendly service. The daily vegetarian breakfast was amazing...something for everyone. Christie added a lot of nice touches. She's a highly skilled yoga teacher and was able to teach to many levels from beginner to more advanced with clear alignment based instruction. I like the combination of vinyasa/restorative styles of yoga as well as yoga nidra and meditation. I highly recommend this retreat to everyone!
I had a great time. The hotel was wonderful- I loved the city. The yoga instruction was expert and fun!
