Yoga, Nature, & Culture in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala--An Adventure into the Heart
Come explore the key concepts of yoga through a philosophical lens that includes the masculine and feminine energies present in all of us. Explore how the world works (karma), how we can create our life’s work or duty (Dharma) from that information and invite in the meaning (maya) that makes our life rich. These integral yoga concepts are often misunderstood but here we will practice self-inquiry (svadhyaya), yoga asana, meditation and pranayama in community (kula) so that we can better understand ourselves and create more meaningful, joyful lives.
Immersed in alignment vinyasa yoga and an intention to give back to the community that will sustain us in Lake Atitlan, we will invite in play and deep, contemplative practice. Whether in the lake, hiking, paddle boarding, participating in a traditional Mayan shaman protection ceremony, late-afternoon hot tub soaks, enjoying the local artisans craftwork, spa treatments or taking in the gorgeous panoramic views – all of this will become your yoga mat. A place to unplug and reconnect to your true Self – filled with peace, joy, and a renewed sense of the power of nature and culture.
