During this retreat, you will stay in Sierra Hot Springs Resort. For centuries, Native Americans have regarded this land as a sacred healing space. Guests come to unwind, connect, and enjoy the enchanted location. The water is as smooth as silk and almost instantly brings you into total relaxation.

Accommodations are inside the charming and rustic lodge. They provide dorms, shared, and single rooms. Please note that all of the shared rooms have either a queen or king bed, so if you are staying in a shared room, you must bring someone with you. For those who wish to camp, you may bring your tent for basic camping on the ground. Bathrooms are shared by the floor, and include showers.

The temple dome area is the main pool area and consists of the hot pool (105 to 110 degrees Fahrenheit), which is enclosed in a large geodesic dome, featuring stained glass and skylights. Complemented by two cold plunges, this pool is also sand bottomed, with mosaic tile sides. Outside the dome, the large warm pool (98 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit) is complemented by a large sundeck.

The meditation pool (98 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit) is outdoors, surrounded by rock tile. In this faux natural pool, you step down rock steps into a sand bottomed delight. This seasonal hot pool is ideal for enjoying the star studded skies.

The phoenix baths (85 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit) are seasonal pools inside private rooms and the warm spring water is drained and refilled between users. The phoenix baths also house the newly remodeled spa area.

AromaTouch technique

Blends of pure essential oils are applied to meridian points on the back and feet.

Body scrub therapy - 90 or 120 minutes

Although the skin is your largest organ, it is many times the most neglected one. The flavored scrubs are one of the best ways to exfoliate, cleanse, and tone your skin, revealing a much younger layer and also improving future skin regeneration. Followed by a rehydrating massage, each scrub leaves your skin smooth and soft with a natural glow.

Body wrap therapy - 90 or 120 minutes

Dating back to ancient Egypt, body wraps are known to beautify the skin, detoxify the body, reduce weight through fluid release, and gently soothe the spirit. Combined with a 30-minute massage, the wraps are designed to enhance skin color and clarity, boost your own lymphatic system’s effectiveness, facilitate the absorption of lotions and nutrients, and contribute to a deepened sense of overall health and well being.

Deep heat stone therapy - 90 minutes

This treatment is perfect for warming up after a day on the slopes or relaxing stiff muscles after a workout. This full body hot stone massage uses an anti-inflammatory muscle warming gel and radiates heat throughout your entire body.

Flower essence scalp treatment - 15 minutes

A blend of jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, flower essences, and lavender essential oil is applied to the scalp and then wrapped in hot towels.

Full body wrap and scrub treatment - 120 minutes

Out with the old, in with the new. Combined with a full body massage, the champagne rose scrub and body wrap is a wonderful way to indulge the senses, satisfy the soul, and treat yourself to the silkiest and most sensational smelling skin you will ever have.

Pohaku (lava stone facial treatment) massage combo - 120 minutes or 60 minutes

This relaxing and grounding facial treatment originates in Hawaii. It begins with a 60 minute full body massage and is followed by a 60 minute hot rock facial treatment that includes a cleanser, exfoliant, and hydrating mask. It is also available as a 60 minute facial treatment without the massage.

The ultimate spa treatment - 150 minutes

After selecting your products, the ultimate in relaxation begins with an exfoliating body scrub. The scrub is followed by a sumptuous hydrating wrap. While wrapped, you will receive a full facial treatment including cleanser, exfoliant, and a hydrating mask, as well as a flower essence scalp treatment.

    Great Retreat

    CONS Cons: It is an 'open to the public place (with payment) so it was a little crowded at some of the springs.

    PROS Pros: Yoga and meditation was very good, location was peaceful (but busy) and Christine has a down to earth vibe and positive energy. Would recommend to anyone who needs to unplug for 40 hours.

    Organizer response: Thank you very much for your kind review! I'm grateful to host this retreat at this same location annually. Hope to see you again. Namaste.

    "Christie is absolutely wonderful. I received my Reiki Master certification from her and my mother had a Reiki session with her. I found Christie when doing a general search online for a Reiki Master training and noticed she was a massage therapist and a yoga instructor, just like me. Why did I not know her? I knew I had to meet this woman. Christie was open to doing a one on one certification with me, which was great because I am so busy. She was very clear in how she explained and showed what I was learning, and allowed as much practice as I felt I needed to feel comfortable and confident. She gave excellent feedback, and even offered tasty snacks when we took a few minutes break. "

    "I have had awesome results from applying what I have learned to my life and my reiki clients have had amazing transformations as well. I am so thankful that I was able to learn from Christie, she is an amazing energetic healer. My mom's reiki session was awesome too. My mother said she felt very relaxed, as you should be during a session, and didn't notice any immediate effects afterwards except feeling relaxed and good. Then, later that day and throughout the next few weeks, amazing shifts started to happen and mom said it was all things she thought she was just dreaming about while relaxing on Christie's table. Positive changes took place all due to energetic channels open and blockages clearing. Thanks Christie."

    "I've been taking yoga classes with Christie onsite at my company for over a year and look forward to it every week. Christie is always prepared with a lesson plan that is tailored to our experience levels but also helps us learn and grow from week to week. Additionally, Christie checks in with us at the beginning of each class to see if there are any individual needs or things we'd like to work on. As a result, the class is both, stress relieving and invigorating, a great combination for any work day. I would highly recommend Christie's classes to individuals and companies looking to promote a happy and healthy workplace."

    "I ran my first half marathon since April today. In April, the time was two hours 17 minutes; today, it was one hour 57 minutes. I'm happy. How was my miraculous preparation? The best thing I did to prepare for this half marathon was taking yoga class with Christie. How did yoga make me a better runner? The first thing I learned was to open up for good breathing. That is one thing that a runner and a yogi have in common; it's all about breath."

    "One of the most receptive energy healers I have come across, you will find everything and more with Christie. I've had numerous Reiki sessions in many different cities, but Christie is by far the most synchronous one with my needs. You'd be wasting a Chakra if you didn't go see her."

    "I've been attending Christie's corporate yoga class at my work for a while and I must say it is the highlight of my week. This class is the perfect break in my stress-filled workday, it benefits both my mind and my body. Everyone in our company sits at their computers for many hours in the day. During class, Christie focuses on yoga techniques that loosen up our tense muscles and calm our buzzing brains. This yoga class is locked in my calendar."

    "Best yoga teacher in the Bay Area! I have gone to a few dozen or more of Christie's yoga classes at various levels and I have loved every one. From restoration to yoga level three, I have always left feeling refreshed and relaxed. I never have a hard time sleeping at night when I have taken her class during the day. Even her corporate yoga classes at the workplace really help you get through a work day by lowering stress and allowing you to be more productive at work, with a calm and clear head. On top of that, she is very entertaining and may get a little silly and fun."
