Tap into your creative flow and inspire new growth!
Immerse yourself in a slice of paradise on Lake Atitlan. Journey in the Mayan highlands of Guatemala for an unforgettable and inspiring getaway! We’ll practice yoga, mindfulness, writing practice, create ceremonies and community, and clarify our vision, purpose and truth.
Lake Atitlan is a magical place for incubating dreams. Walking the path of beauty, we are grateful to the miracle of life happening now. In each present moment, we have the choice to open, expand, heal and grow — to live from the heart.
In a small group setting (max. 5 participants), through the group practices of yoga, breathing, meditation, relaxation, and tuning in, we will align with our heart’s deepest desires and allow our unique purpose for being on the planet to reveal itself.
The yoga we’ll practice is slow flow — a mix of hatha, mindful vinyasa flow, and yin. Sessions incorporate a mix of yoga asana, breathing practices, meditation and chanting/toning, writing/journaling and guided relaxation with sound bath.
Open to all levels from novice to expert. Take home healthy habits and empowering practices that will enhance your personal well being and nurture your intuitive intelligence.
