A Magical Mayan Adventure - Yoga & Breathwork Retreat to Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
- Villa Sumaya
- Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
- Jan 14, 2017 - Jan 21, 2017 (8 days)
Take a magical adventure to the heart of the Mayan motherland, Lake Atitlan Guatemala, considered one of the most exquisitely beautiful places on Earth. Your hosts, Sydney Duarte aka The Traveling Gypsy and Jonathan Winn of Breathe Refuge, will guide you on this spectacular 8 day, 7 night retreat full of adventure, exploration, rejuvenation and inspiration. You will stay at Villa Sumaya, a dream-like escape overlooking the shores of this massive lake with stunning views of surrounding volcanos.
Jonathan & Sydney’s intention is to facilitate a graceful emersion into this mystical world that is considered an energy vortex on the planet. Many believe that the Mayans disappeared, leaving only their architectural ruins behind. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Mayans are still living, closely connected to their heritage, in the highlands of Guatemala, around Lake Atitlan.
Highlights of your adventure include exploring local villages and markets, a tour of a local coffee plantation, a hike on San Pedro Volcano, gentle rejuvenating classes daily (yoga, breathwork and/or meditation), and a closing ceremony with a traditional Mayan Shaman.
Also included are:
Arrival and departure transportation to and from airport
Delicious and healthy vegetarian meals served 3x/day at retreat center (meat is available upon request for additional fee)
Unique and beautiful housing options with amenities
Free time to explore the towns around Atitlan, rest in a hammock, meditate by the sanctuary or read by the shore
