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!
My first and hopefully not final Yoga/Meditation retreat with Christie was awesome! Of course it didn’t disappoint that the location was at one of my most favourite places on Earth! But Christie’s teaching skills were great. She was patient and respectful of her multi leveled students in attendance, and guided us all equally, consciously, & compassionately through each movement and flow, making the classes, (however challenging), a wonderful journey of personal strength and achievement. I hope I get to experience another class guided by Christie. Maybe a visit to S.F. is in order?! Namaste
Christie is an excellent teacher. She has the ability to make it challenging for advanced students, and appropriate for beginners. Sierra hot springs is rustic but comfortable. The food was great.
