Her life has shifted in the last years as she has begun offering her experiences as a part time explorer and full-time yoga teacher, mystical dance teacher, Reiki Master, retreat facilitator, and trip leader or creator. Her focus in this life is inspiring aliveness, opening to a life lived from the heart, empowerment, and the activation of a cosmic consciousness.

Chris is an empowering, profound, fierce, and wise yoga teacher of the body, mind, soul, and rock. His passion for yoga and meditation is only surpassed by his love of rock climbing. Chris offers his gifts of silence, awareness, connection to nature, living in the alignment of thought word and action, and the life-changing remembrance that all you need is already within in you.

Lea Ronen

Although she wasn’t aware of it at the time, Lea's journey began with yoga while working fulltime in the finance world. As she practiced yoga, things began to significantly shift in her life until she realized she wasn’t living the way she wanted to. She loves the opportunity to help people break free of patterns in order to live the life they truly want, discover their gifts, and be in joy and presence. She brings a playful happiness in all she does, and is excited to share some of her favorite magical places.

The care and attention to detail provided from the time I booked my trip to throughout the journey is unprecedented. Kristie led our group with an open heart, flexibility, mindfulness and presence and she created an environment that was receptive to and respectful of the diverse people within it. The adventures, experiences, and growth as a result of this journey have been transformative. I have nothing but gratitude.

Lotus of the Desert Retreat was for me, a trip of a lifetime. Our group was in very capable hands with Kristie Lonczak as our guide. I told her many times, ‘I could not have done India without you.’ As a developing country, India is not for the faint of heart. Kristie is a savvy, expert traveler. Like a Lotus growing firm the mud, she gracefully draws forth a profound, tangible, spiritual experience from the inherent chaos and cultural quirks of India. She handles the details, train schedules, and activities deftly. I felt safe in India—on a desert safari, negotiating streets at night and on remote hikes with Kristie leading us. Kristie’s contacts are all lovely people I trusted and was happy to give my business to. It’s obvious she draws to her like minded and spirited people because she is genuine, generous and kindhearted. Our group was a special blend of gifted, soulful women who were a joy to share this big journey with.

Kristie is intuitive, with a keen sense for balance of activity and relaxation. Her knowledge of outlying areas, of knowing the right people for a particular experience, of special temples off the tourist path are all invaluable. She knows and loves good food, clean, comfortable and beautiful places to stay—with safety, cleanliness and quality a priority.

This trip exceeded my expectations on many levels. We all hope to find something we believe only India can give us and this particular retreat delivers every opportunity to experience what the soul longs for. Truth and understanding, inspiration and beauty, adventure and fun and laughter are the threads that weave the beautiful memories this trip creates.

A focus on the feminine was a powerful aspect of the trip that has changed my life forever. The goddess temples visited combined with Kristie’s guided meditations and her knowledge of Hindu mythology brought insights that have empowered me creatively.

Kristie is an excellent yoga instructor who brings a varied practice knowledge base to her class. This keeps the sessions interesting and in the spirit of travel and adventure, fresh and new. She secured great locations for yoga—hotel rooftops with beautiful views and quiet, private gardens. She easily managed a wide range of abilities and experience positively.

On a personal note, I have met a friend for life in Kristie. She is a powerful example for living authentically and I hope to have the opportunity to travel with her again.

The journey to India with Kristie and Chris was incredible, life-changing, and truly magical! I felt completely cared for in the sometimes crazy country. We had a great balance of Yoga and Meditation, with visits to cool cultural sites, and outdoor explorations. I highly recommend any trip with Flowing Spirit Journeys!
