Kaivalya Yoga School at Mahadevi Ashram

About This Center

This is a place for serious seekers to deepen their practice and knowledge, to retreat from the hussle & bussle of daily life and focus on what matters most.

We offer daily classes and a 1-month Yoga Intensive, both come with comprehensive lectures on the mysteries of Yoga and spirituality, Hridaya/Advaita meditation retreats, Classical Hatha Yoga Teacher Trainings, Kirtan ceremonies and various special-interest workshops to complement and expand your practice.

We're located on 'one of the most beautiful lakes in the world', crater Lake Atitlan, with its three majestic volcanoes, outside the traditional Mayan villages of San Marcos La Laguna and Tzununa ('Hummingbird'), on a safe and private property with its own creek, avocado, coffee, orange and zapote trees. Accommodation is in private or shared bamboo cabins and yurts. Vegelicious meals are provided by the ashram kitchen.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
