Mystical Yoga Farm

About This Center

LOCATION

In a quiet corner upon the magical lapping shores of Lake Atitlan, the Mystical Yoga Farm sits meditatively beneath watch of ancient volcano.

The location offers a special opportunity to live sustainably with nature, taking a relaxing break from everyday life to immerse in the practices of meditation, yoga, creative self-exploration, and deep appreciation of the beauty all around you.

ACCOMMODATION

The Mystical Yoga Farm is a secluded, private location accessible only by boat (ten minutes across lake from Santiago). It sits at the base of a volcano and is surrounded by magical forests, healing waters and spectacular views. The Mystical Yoga Farm offers a number of private and shared accommodation options.

Facilities include shared hot showers, a traditional sauna, a communal lounge and cafeteria.

FOOD

All of the food is vegetarian and prepared with loving hands. The humble vegetable garden nourishes as often as possible while the rest of our organic food comes from the local farmers of our neighboring villages. The Mystical Yoga Farm serves three delicious meals a day.

OFF-THE-GRID

The Mystical Yoga Farm is a self-directed spiritual community that is focused on self-sustainability, growing fresh organic food, growing healthy yogi’s, teachers and healing practitioners. The desire is to heal the earth and its inhabitants through connection with nature and Spirit.

We are an Eco-Rustico Retreat Center that is off the grid; utilizing filtered water, composting toilets, solar hot water, and solar electricity for use in the kitchen, office, shower areas and communal spaces. We invite you to connect to your natural rhythms during the retreat & live with nature.

We share meals in the Rancho and practice yoga in a thatch-roofed Yoga Shala with breath-taking views of the lake and the volcanoes. Meditation occurs on the dock as we watch the sunrise over the volcano. This place is a rare gem, a peaceful oasis like nothing experienced before; perfect for the inward journey you seek to embark on.

FREE TIME:

The farm shares its beauty in many ways during your free time: relaxing in hammocks, sailing, swimming, hiking, kayaking, gardening, coffee picking, paddle boarding, reading from the consciousness library, feeding the chickens or detoxing in the traditional wood-fired temascal.

WHAT TO BRING:

All rooms have solar powered lights and candles for ambiance, but we recommend a headlamp for reading in the evenings.

We use bio-degradable products in the kitchen, for laundry and for personal hygiene and we encourage you to also help protect our beautiful property from harmful chemicals.

Bring a a towel, layers of clothing to suit varying temperatures during the day and night. Natural insect repellent is nice to have. As we are a secluded location, you will want to bring anything you will need on hand.
