Reviews

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!
