More Information about:  Villa Sumaya & FAQ


This Winter Journey with us to highlands of Guatemala and let the long winter months of darkness drift away as you play along the shores of Lake Atitlan.

We will fill our days with yoga, meditation and other activities like hiking, swimming and massage.  Practices will include Mindfulness Discussions, Kundalini, Ashtanga, Somatic Yoga & Meditation

Our morning Sadhana’s  will begin with a group mindfulness practice and Kundalini Set followed later by an Ashtanga inspired class that will leave you feeling enriched and re-energized.

During the day there will be time to explore and enjoy the amenities of Villa Sumaya and local Mayan villages or just relax and enjoy your surroundings. The center features a solar hot tub, pool, sauna, places to hike, a beautiful lake and local villages to explore.

In addition you will have access to a broad range of wonderful and talented healers. Their expertise includes intuitive energy healing, reiki, massage, Ayurveda, Feldenkrais and other related healing practices. There are also plenty of wonderful spots to relax, nap, or read a book.

Most afternoons we will meet once again to practice a relaxing yoga session. The evening session will leave your minds and muscles relaxed, your heart open, and your body ready for a restful night.

This retreat is open to all levels.
