Sacred Garden Atitlan

About This Center

Sacred Garden Atitlan was created in order to be an example of living the yoguic lifestyle surrounded by nature. Situated on the smallest and less touristy town of Lake Atitlan, this small retreat center provides the tranquility and peace of a mountain top with breathgiving views of the Lake and its magnificent volcanos. One feels one with nature whislt practicing and contemplating this living painting. Having capacity for only 10 people at its peak, participants get personalized attention in every class and can improve their personal practice away from distractions.

Discover the inner landscape of your being through yoga and silence
