Chrissy Sie-Merritt teaches from the perspective that we are all teachers on our own path of discovery, sharing a relationship of growth and awareness. She believes in sharing the yoga philosophy in a way that opens each participant to a self guided path within their physical and spiritual self. Over time her classes help you develop an intuitive practice that flows into your everyday life, guiding you back to a natural state of consciousness.


Chrissy’s classes combine the structure of Iyengar and the focus of breath and flow of Vinyasa Yoga.  Since her formal training, with Paula Tursi of Reflections Yoga, Chrissy has developed an instinctual awareness in her teaching.   Chrissy has studied with various teachers in the healing arts field gathering wisdom and insight as tools to weave into her practice. 


Chrissy is the founder of South Moon Studio, a small wellness and creativity centre in East Braintree, Manitoba.  She has been running classes and retreats for over 10 years.  Chrissy is passionate about the healing aspect of visual art through the wisdom of nature and is currently working on her Degree in Eco Psychology, with a certificate in Eco Art Therapy. 


All of Chrissy’s training and experiences allow her to create a safe space for students, of all levels, to practice the physical aspect of yoga and art as a tool to delve deep into that sacred space within.

Saturday night live music with The Crooked Brothers!

We are delighted to welcome our good friends The Crooked Brothers to the retreat! The brothers have long time been a part of the Falcon Trails family. They've fit boots in the rental shop, they've fixed hot tubs at the cabins, they've flipped burgers kin the ski hill kitchen. They even built the Mahigan log cabin out at High lake!

The Crooked Brothers are home-brewed. They play homegrown, homemade music.

Both gritty and pretty at once – their take on folk, on blues, rock or anything they turn their hands to can’t be said to be anything but their own.  Sometimes it’s as simple as three sweet harmonies, or a single harmonica holding the whole room at attention, and sometimes things growl and shake and come smashing down with a filthy rhythm beneath it.  But it’s all Crooked Brothers, to the last drop.

Some details:

  • A minimum of 8 participants registered by September 15 required for retreat to be confirmed.

  • Those booking during the Early Bird registration period but wanting to limit the cabin to 2 people will need to book at the Regular rate.

  • Any dietary restrictions must be discussed at time of booking.
