She hopes that each person who leaves her class finds strength, nourishment, and balance, as well as the wonder of life within and around them.
“My Cabo retreat with Christa Mastrangelo was perfect! The classes that Christa offered were varied and each one felt special in their own way. Her calming, patient and very spiritual demeanor, were the perfect marriage with the beautiful and tranquil surroundings of Cabo. For anyone looking for peace, relaxation and fun, this is a retreat for you!”
“Thank you for including us in your Baja Bliss retreat! It far exceeded our expectations in every area! From your first yoga session, Christa’s teaching style and gentle guidance to each pose ensured that I would fully embrace the rest of the retreat. She is an excellent teacher! I am not an early bird, but for the entire retreat, I was up at 7:00 a.m. and looked forward to what she would teach us all during all of your sessions. I am thankful to her for sharing her wisdom, leadership and encouragement to continue and enhance our own practice.” –Dave

Included in the retreat is a shuttle from the local port on Amorgos Island to the retreat center. Participants will be responsible for securing their transportation to Amorgos Island. There are many ways to come to this island and this will depend on your travel plans. Many participants enjoy arriving in Athens a day early and staying a day later in order to have more ferry options and travel flexibility. Once the retreat is confirmed, you will receive complete information about the airports and the ferry options that will bring you to your destination. The center is a 5 or 35-minute shuttle ride, depending on which port you arrive at.
We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip.
We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only). For Non-U.S. Residents this policy with Trawick insurance is available: Safe Travels Multi-National.
We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.
