Slow Flow Yoga & Writing Retreat

Written in


Upcoming Dates: July 2-9, 2022

Her majesty, Lago de Atitlán

Immerse yourself on the path of beauty at Lake Atitlan in the Mayan highlands of Guatemala for a week of yoga, creativity, community and culture! Clarify your vision, purpose and truth by tapping your creative flow and inspiring new growth.

Villa Sumaya at sacred Lake Atitlan is a spectacular site for healing, learning and dreaming. Walking the path of beauty, we are ever grateful to the simple miracle of life happening now. We realize that every moment we have the choice to open, expand, heal and grow. We learn to live from the heart. We dedicate the merits of our heart-centered actions to the benefit to all beings without exception, including ourselves.

In a small-group setting, through the guided practices of yoga, breathing, meditation, relaxation, and tuning in to our energy and intuition, we will align with our heart’s deepest desires and watch our unique purpose for being on the planet unfold.

The yoga style we’ll practice is slow flow — a mix of hatha yoga, mindful vinyasa flow, and yin yoga. The sessions also incorporate breathing practices, meditation and chanting/toning at the end of the class, along with a 20-minute writing period, optional sharing and finally, guided relaxation at the end with sound healing.

Open to all levels from novice to expert. Take home healthy habits and empowering practices that will enhance your personal well being and nurture your intuitive intelligence.
