Reconnect with your natural self and heal in a magical way amidst the Sacred Mayan Energy of Lake Atitlan.
Lake Atitlan in Guatemala is known for its vibrant energy and is renowned by Shamans as one of the three vortexes in the world. With this magical location as our backdrop and home for seven days, allow yourself to connect to your spirit and soften your soul away from the rush of the world.
Heal and restore your body with daily Yin Yoga classes gazing out at Lake Atitlan and its two majestic volcanos. Yin Yoga is essential to our Yang active lifestyle. This slower-paced yet challenging class will improve circulation, improve flexibility, release fascia and improve joint mobility. It also brings a balance to internal organs and heightens our flow of chi (or prana).
In addition to our daily Yin Yoga classes, enjoy rejuvenating, nightly 432hz Crystal Bowls, Tibetan Bowls and Planetary Gong Sound Healing sessions in our gentle wooden shala.
Sound Healing is an effective tool for influencing our emotional and physical bodies. Each unique sound vibration resonates with our energetic and physical planes to offer the following benefits:
- Releases Emotional Trauma
- Induces Complete Relaxation
- Unlocks blocked emotions
- Relieves anxiety and stress
- Decreases depression
- Normalizes Blood Pressure
- Relieves Physical Pain
Experience two Shamanic Breathwork workshops, optional hikes and explorations, delicious cultural vegetarian food, and more!
Join our tribe of positive, spiritual yogis looking for magic among the ancient energies of Lake Atitlan. It will be an adventure you won’t soon forget.
