TESTIMONIALS 

My daughter and I love Chi junky (doesn’t everyone?) so when we heard that Rachelle was having her first ever retreat in prince Edward County we were the first to reserve our spots. Why did we jump so fast – because Rachelle is an awesome yoga instructor. Her classes are always challenging but fun. She knows about injuries and makes individual adjustments (I have many). Her play lists are incredible. Rachelle makes time for a proper savasana at the end of each class so I always feel refreshed and invigorated when I leave. Having the amazing Tonya as chef guaranteed spectacular food. Wine country just added another wonderful dimension. The retreat was even better than anticipated – we laughed, made new friends, ate, sipped wine and participated in some of the best yoga classes I have ever experienced. I highly recommend Rachelle’s retreat – beginners through advanced will learn and grow in an atmosphere of supported fun.

The retreat that Rachelle put together in PEC was truly amazing. Between the comfortable and chic space, luxurious hot tub and unique yoga space that was just a short jaunt away, everything blended together to create a wonderful retreat experience. On top of this, the chef’s vegan concoctions and the wine-tasting from esteemed PEC wineries exceeded my expectations. We dined, we laughed, we moved in unison, we sat by the fire and rested. Free time was ample and was well-balanced with a full schedule that did not disappoint. I am very excited for the next retreat adventure!!!

The Chi Junky Yoga retreat was totally full service!  Rachelle and her team though of everything; from personal gift bags, an amazing menu and well timed events.  I love that each yoga class took on a life of its own, and we didn’t have to go by the clock.  I would do this every weekend if I could!
