Grow & Glow in Guatemala with Leah Zaccaria

About This Event

Get ready to get in touch with yourself! Through inspiration, yoga, and meditation, Leah will draw out your light during this week of growth and expansion. Majestically located on the shores of Lake Atitlan, our retreat center is the perfect place to dive into your yoga practice and ignite the fires of transformation. Believed by the Mayans to be the center of the universe, Atitlán is surrounded by a dozen highly preserved Mayan villages and three dormant volcanoes. Alexander von Humboldt called it "the most beautiful lake in the world."

When you're not on your mat, you'll be able to explore the culture of local villages on guided excursions, support verified fair trade organizations for local artists, and take in a few majestic hikes to witness a sunrise and sunset like never before. You'll have plenty of free time to enjoy walks along the lake, sweat in the wood-fired sauna, soak in the solar-powered hot tub, drop into solitude, or connect with new friends. Let's grow and glow together in Guatemala!
