About us

Slow down. Unplug. Meditate. Breathe. Heal. Live in Nature. Saturate your Soul in Earth’s biorhythms. Connect to Source. Reconnect to YOU.

Are you ready to tap out of the world of emails, deadlines, social media & smart phones? Start 2019 feeling renewed and restored. For 7 days, we will live in the lush Yoga Forest overlooking volcanos and the mystical Lake Atitlan. Let’s come together, and spend a week of yoga woven with stillness, spaciousness,  room to play and dream and breathe. Imagine yourself waking up with the sunrise peaking over three volcanos across the pristine lake. Padding through the lush green mossy forest path, over streams and past the ducks and goats…to where a sacred bamboo yoga shala awaits.  You unroll your mat, and dive in…

Enjoy daily yoga & meditation offerings, beautiful sunrises, healing sound bath, rich local culture, delicious vegetarian meals, waterfalls, lake swims, group sauna, outdoor solar heated showers, hikes, excursions, cacao ceremony, and optional spa packages (thai massage, mud treatments, etc).


San Marcos Laguna in the western hghlands of Guatemala. We’ll be staying at the Yoga Forest in the mountains looking out over Lake Atitlan, towards the San Pedro, Toliman, and Atitlan volcanos.

Travel Tips:

Morning Travel Recommended: Book your flight to arrive in Guatemala City, then take a direct shuttle to Antigua. Please arrange to take an 8-9am collective shuttle (Q100) from Antigua to San Marcos la Laguna in order to get you to town in the morning or very early afternoon. We offer a daily escort service from San Marcos la Laguna to The Yoga Forest promptly at 2PM. Be sure to arrive in San Marcos la Laguna with plenty of time to locate Circles Cafe before the escort service arrives.

We also can arrange a private shuttle to pick you up from Guatemala City Airport to San Marcos La Laguna. Our driver will be waiting at the airport with a sign with your name on it. The ride directly from the GUA to San Marcos is approximately 4 hours.

Please plan your travels accordingly, either spending a night in Antigua to make a morning shuttle, or stay in San Marcos la Laguna a night early. For your safety, LATE ARRIVALS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
