Yoga Vacation in Guatemala

with Swami Asokananda, E-RYT 500 and Ram Wiener, E-RYT 500

February 10 - 17, 2024

Program is fully booked

Discover the breathtaking vistas of cobalt-blue Lake Atitlan uniquely surrounded by some of Guatemala’s largest volcanoes. Join us for a Yoga vacation in Guatemala and watch your workday blues vanish into thin air.

You will stay at a beautiful hotel and retreat center, Villa Sumaya, situated on the picturesque shore of Lake Atitlan. It has an uninterrupted vista, punctuated only by a skyline of three perfect volcanoes. Here, you can relax and experience an ideal place for people in search of rest, reflection, and ageless natural beauty. This unpretentious, thatched-roof complex has comfortable rooms and bungalows, spacious gardens, a restaurant, and a beautiful facility for Hatha Yoga classes, meditations and retreats.

The restaurant, with a stunning view of the lake, offers a culinary-conscious menu for vegetarians. A nutritious, eclectic blend of local and international cuisine, created from Guatemala’s cornucopia of fruits and vegetables, is available three times a day. Baked goods are produced daily.

Our daily schedule will include:

  • Meditations
  • Two Hatha Yoga classes per day
  • Presentations from our featured senior presenters
  • Plenty of free time to swim, sunbathe, go for walks, simply relax, and get to know your fellow travelers

We will plan some trips outside of Lake Atitlan for those interested.
