Guatemala Retreat: Yoga, meditation, swimming, wildlife and country tour
Theme of this retreat is surrendering egoic mind to Divine Mind.
Guatemala, the land of eternal spring, is located on the southern border of Mexico. It is the only country in Central America that still has a largely Indian population, which still holds true to its Mayan culture, religion, costume, and Guatemala community values.
Lake Atitlan is located in the heart of the Guatemalan highlands. It is located just a short boat ride from Panajachel, a good town for shopping. The lake is spectacular, enchanting, and ringed with volcanoes, mountains and Indian villages. It’s an amazing place to sit and be still, while enjoying the stunning displays of light upon the water.
Lake Atitlan, is our home for 5 nights, at the beautiful Lomas de Tzununa . The retreat center offers incredible views of Lake Atitlan and its majestic volcanos from our very own room. Few distractions and little noise. Delicious Guatemalan meals are included. Wonderful setting for our sunrise and sunset yoga, guided meditations, and playshops. Also hikes, village visits and other options, with still plenty of time for reading, relaxing, and reflecting. We offer comfortable and clean accommodations, cultural experience, affordable travel, full country tour, gorgeous settings, delicious food, compassionate teachings, sacred ceremony and rituals, and personal service.
This trip is more than a yoga retreat, and will include a tour and cultural introduction to Guatemala and its amazing Mayan Indians. Roy lived in Guatemala for over 2 years, and speaks Spanish, and has already led 6 yoga retreats to Guatemala. We will also stay 3 nights in Antigua, 1 in Guatemala City, and if you include the recommended extra 3 days, 1 in Tikal, 1 in Yaxha. The Tikal & Yaxha ruins visit includes a flight to and from Guatemala City.
