"I felt that every detail of the retreat was so well planned. From the yoga space to the excursions to the location and accommodations that only included those of us at the retreat. All details were considered and it was perfectly executed!"
~ Joy M, Idaho

"I made the last minute decision to join Yoga Download’s retreat, and 10 days later was enjoying the trip of a lifetime! Although I have practiced yoga for years, this was my first yoga retreat. Turns out, it was the one I’d been waiting for! Transformative, in the best way!"

CHRISTEN BAKKEN

Christen Bakken is uncertain if she found yoga, or if yoga found her, but since 1998 the yoga mat has been Christen’s refuge. Her first visits to the mat had nothing to do with tight hamstrings or shoulders and instead, had more to do with reducing anxiety. Through movement and breath, she began to see the mat as a place to let go, and, only then, strengthen and soften in all areas of her life.In 2006, Christen took her first power yoga teacher training. She has done many trainings since then; her most recent is 500 hours with Rusty Wells in San Francisco.

Christen's specialty is weaving together the work we are doing with the body, to the work we can do with the heart and mind. Bhakti, the devotional practice of yoga and Christen’s style, asks students to look past their tight hamstrings and hips, and really begin to see what is magnificent and already perfect about their bodies. Christen’s vigorous flow classes can transform not only the way you move on the mat, but the way you move through your life. Her intention is to lift your heart and inspire you to see divinity in each moment.

"My daughter suggested that I was 'living my best life' as I relayed to her how much I enjoyed this retreat. She was absolutely right. Jamie and her staff went out of their way to make everyone feel at home and pampered throughout the week. Thank you for a lovely time!"
~ Rita P, San Francisco
