Christy Pitco doesn't disappoint! The venue is perfect; beautiful, very affordable, relaxing, excellent yoga classes on many levels so you don't feel the poses are above or below your ability - she gives many options. The combo of yoga and meditation were just what I was looking for and helped to reintroduce them in my daily routine just before a hectic next couple of months. The option to go hiking in the most amazing forest is a plus, add to that, schedule a massage or do a sauna to complete/round out your relax and refresh experience. This retreat included a magnificent sound bath which left me feeling relaxed to the core! I just loved this added experience and it was perfect given the venue and natural surroundings. The vegetarian/vegan food was the absolutely scrumptious and I was simply spoiled because I wanted the same when I returned home. I wish! This retreat as well the others I've attended with Christy have always been above the mark. She teaches her classes in a gentle and well explained/attainable manner that will want you coming back for more! Great retreat and awesome experience! I'm feeling I received the reboot I was wanting and needing! Namaste
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!
