Reviews

After five days of revitalizing yoga, delicious food, beautiful accommodations and unforgettable excursions, I left Christi’s retreat feeling healthy and rejuvenated. She was a wonderful host and organized a perfect balance of restoration and activity. I highly recommend one of Christi’s retreats to any vacationer who appreciates nature, health and good company. Thanks, Christi!

This was a wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating vacation. Had a wonderful time with everyone that joined the trip - some of THE nicest people I've met in my travels. Really made the experience enjoyable. Christie's morning yoga got us going for our day and evening yoga was relaxing and the perfect way to wind down from the day. The reiki session I had with Christie was relaxing and peaceful. The hotel was a lovely quaint, property by the ocean with good food and a relaxing atmosphere. Exactly what I'd hoped my experience on this retreat would be and I would absolutely recommend going on a retreat with Christie.

The yoga retreat was fantastic! I enjoyed the people, the atmosphere, the food and the yoga!!
I had the most wonderful time on this yoga adventure. I honestly loved everything about it! The yoga teacher, Christie, lead us through two daily classes that were thoughtful and engaging, full of flow and fun. The hotel (The Rip Jack Inn) was very nice, it felt very personal and familiar, like staying at a friend's estate on the beach. On that note, the hotel was a 2 minute walk from an incredible beach... just beautiful. The restaurant was accommodating and the food was very good. Overall, the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The group of yoga participants were all friendly and we had a great time together. I only wish it was longer. I would absolutely do a retreat with Christie again, anytime!
The hot springs were a great feature, but my favorite part of the retreat was the reiki session. Christie made everyone feel comfortable by describing what reiki is and how she learned about it. The yoga sessions were fantastic -- just the right balance of challenge and relaxation. Meeting the other retreaters was fun as well!
