Retreat Savvy believes that yoga retreats are the perfect way to revive one’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being, while having fun and building new bonds of friendship at the same time. Retreats are our favorite way to teach and practice because everyday distractions are removed and the focus is on the health, comfort and happiness of the students. Daily classes with a progressive curriculum allow for a deep immersion into the practice, and facilitate great transformation and healing. Retreat Savvy provides full-service retreat management for teachers and students who want the best of these experiences in the most exquisite and inspiring locations.

About Laura Christensen,

Retreat Savvy Founder


Retreat Savvy was founded by Laura Christensen, a yoga teacher with over 20 years of retreat experience both as a participant and a teacher. Laura has led more than 20 successful international retreats and hundreds more domestic yoga events. Laura is, indeed, very savvy about retreat planning and execution, with a background in event planning for the senior executives at Charles Schwab and Robertson Stephens.

A dedicated yoga student for 25 years and a teacher for 16, Laura understands the needs of both the students and the teachers. Laura brings her absolute integrity and deep care for the well-being of her students to her retreats, and now to Retreat Savvy, ensuring a high-quality experience for all participants, teachers included. She is a retreat “pro” as evidenced by the countless inquiries she receives regularly from other teachers about how to lead a retreat, and by the many students who put their trust in her and keep coming back for more.
