Led by instructor, Christie Holt, a dedicated yogi, and nature enthusiast. Christie Says “Connection with nature and yoga have always been the deepest loves of my life. I marvel at the way that our yoga practice in communion with our relationship to the earth allows us to remember our innate wholeness. Through retreat, we receive the space necessary to truly restore our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellbeing which allows us to remember this truth intrinsically.

I’ve been practicing for nearly ten years and teaching for five of them. I look forward to nurturing our nature together at Sala in November.
