The accommodation provided is on single, shared, or dorm basis. Note that if you are taking a shared room, you must bring someone with you, as the beds are only king or queen sized. One of the dorm rooms holds 5 single beds, the other holds 3 people with a bunk bed and a double bed. Attendees who wish to camp may bring their own tents for very basic camping.

The Temple Dome area is the main pool area and consists of the hot pool (105 to 110 degrees) which is enclosed in a large geodesic dome, featuring stained glass and skylights. Complemented by 2 cold plunges this pool is also sand bottomed, with mosaic tile sides. Outside the dome, the large warm pool (98 to 100 degrees) is complemented by a large sundeck.

The Meditation pool (98 to 100 degrees) is outdoors, surrounded by rock tile. In this faux natural pool, you will 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) 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.

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.

    "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."
