Mindful Yoga & Meditation Retreat

Palm Springs, CA


March 17 – 19, 2017

Join me on a three-day MINDFUL YOGA & MEDITATION RETREAT basking in the sunshine of Palm Springs, CA — at a tranquil, charming hideaway on the western edge of Southern California Coachella Valley. A town that has been revived with creative life and culture, yet offers endless inspiration from connected energy and simple relaxed living. Palm Springs is home to authentic cuisine, nature trails, innovative artistry, and more! Relax in gated accommodations, private pool, freshly prepared meals, with optional hiking and recreational activities. This is an opportunity to reset personal intentions and recalibrate energetic levels by learning how to incorporate a mindful way of living through deeper awareness.

Creating Emergence will provide you with the personal tools to explore and revive your greatest self. Each day will be an opportunity catered for a specialized personal yoga and meditation experience. This weekend is a chance to reset from reality by slowing down in order to recharge from the “doing” aspects of life. By learning how to deconstruct an overly active mind through mindful meditation, yoga, clean eating, and rest, you will rediscover aspects of inner strength, connection, and self-love to assist in the unfolding of your purposeful path.

Reset & Connect

Participant Testimonials From Idyllwild “Center Within” Retreat October 2016

Having the opportunity to experience my first yoga retreat so close to home was a blessing. Christy is very strong in her leadership and practice. She offered a healing space for balance to be restored. I greatly enjoyed the area, cabin and people I met.

Life has changed for me after attending the retreat…I would absolutely be there for the next one and I just want to learn more from the knowledge Christy has. Thank you again for everything you put into this retreat!

Everything was well thought out and planned. Christy did a great job of allowing the group latitude but keeping us on task. I found all of the workshop information beneficial and extremely helpful. I am glad we had a great venue that was within driving distance for most of the group. The real heavy lifting for me is focusing on integrating everything I learned in my daily life and also respecting the process and not getting frustrated when I can’t meditate for 40 minutes immediately. I am working on small increments (baby steps) until I become truly comfortable meditating

Christy set the foundation but the real work will be in the individuals willingness to make time daily to put to go use the tools they have learned.

Christy is a wonderful teacher and her retreat offers the feel of a faraway experience without traveling a great distance to arrive. Each yoga class is interesting and unique with asanas that provide a variety of options to serve all levels of practice. The meditation sessions are doable and valuable whether one is new to mindfulness or more experienced. The relaxing environment Christy creates invites guests to participate, are flexible, yet never pressured. Guests will take away an enjoyable time with tools to apply in daily life.

Rediscover the essence within!
