Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive.

-Hafez (1325-1390)


I strive to create a sense of community, research the globe to introduce people to sacred natural spaces and spiritual practices, and partner with others with complementary skillsets.  Customer care and satisfaction is very important to me so that I provide a consistently outstanding experience! Here are a few lovely words from past and returning retreat participants.

I arrived at my first retreat with Kristin, in Mexico, knowing no one. She immediately helped me feel at home and created an environment that "held" the group and each person. She intuitively roomed me with kindred folks with whom I hit it off. For those who wanted to explore the area, Kristin shared treasures like a jungle path that led to a long, stunning, nearly empty beach. Kristin is one of the best teachers I've encountered in my decades of practice. She offers meaningful yogic teachings, humor, and enough silence to savor one's own internal experience. After that magical week in Mexico, I wanted more! A few months later, when I joined Kristin on Mt. Shasta, in Northern California, she had once again chosen a gorgeous setting, invited lovely people, and a offered a full palette of ritual, yoga, relaxation, pampering, and adventure. I can't wait to see what amazing locations and experiences Kristin offers next.

About Me

I am a householder yogi, a teacher, retreat leader and a mother of three. My 30+ years of practice and 12 years of teaching include exploration of multiple yoga and energetic lineages, including Kundalini, Hatha, Vinyasa, Qi Gong and various meditation and breathing techniques.


My interest in esoteric practices from Tarot to Transpersonal Pychology informs my respect for the everyday mysticism of the natural world.


My teachings and practice are an invitation for you to quiet your mind and open to inner peace. As Ghandi said, “There is no path to peace. Peace is the path”.

I have been leading weekend and week-long group retreats, both domestically and internationally to select groups since 2021. My intention is to expand these offerings in beautiful and sacred locations around the world with like-minded seekers who wish to quiet their minds and release what does not serve them.


Every retreat offers a combination of yoga and energetic practices combined with social alchemy. You can expect nourishing food and practices, stunning natural sanctuaries, and space for both personal stillness and stimulating social interactions.


Whether this is your first retreat of its kind, or a regular excursion, experiencing a retreat is a gift you give yourself.
