About this trip

  Adventure awaits you in the heart of Guatemala’s magnificent haven and peaceful paradise…. Lake Atitlan. Nestled in this beautiful landscape, we offer you the ideal conditions and a pleasant environment to relax, meditate, exercise, sight-see, shop and enjoy our natural home cooked cuisine that is unique, enjoyable, creative and varied, a pleasure for the senses - and nutritious!

Yoga. Healthy Food. Exercise. Adventures.

Learn more about healthy living and nutrition with our hosts Giuseppe and Katia. Giuseppe has liived in Guatemala and Katia is a practitioner of the macrobiotic diet for over 25 years. 

Just like in yoga, macrobiotics is all about balance. Bringing harmony to the two extremes of nature known as yin and yang and of course to your life. The yoga postures, the breathing techniques, meditation and the macrobiotic diet are key resources for a healthy and balanced life. 

A macrobiotic practitioner plans your diet by taking into consideration your age, sex, where you live and how much exercise you do.

Generally, the diet is made up of:

  • organic whole grains such as brown rice, barley, oats and buckwheat (half your food intake)
  • locally grown, organic fruits and vegetables (up to a quarter of your food intake)
  • soups made with vegetables, seaweed, beans, chick peas, lentils and fermented soy (miso) (up to a quarter of your food intake)
  • nuts, seeds and pickled vegetables
  • Small amounts of organic meat or fish. 

Experience a magnificent sunset overlooking a volcano. Try out stand-up paddle boarding, Kayaking, Rock Climbing and zip lining. Learn about the Mayan culture and enjoy a cooking class that  involves a walking tour of the market gathering food to prepare and cook a meal as a group.  Enjoy your delicious meal at a large table overlooking Lake Atitlan! 

Meet our hosts and all the other members of the group for a welcome cocktail upon arrival to the house in Lake Atitlan. Enjoy a tour of the grounds and then dinner with the group before retiring to your room.  Wake up each morning for meditation at 6:30am followed by Yoga at 7:00am.  Daily breakfast from 8:30 to 9:30 followed by various activities.

We have chosen a selection of walks and sights to see, spiritual experiences and cultural activities.
We will explore villages around the lake,  learning about the local Mayan culture and engaging in adventurous activities such as stand up paddle boarding, rock climbing, a cacao/ dance ceremony, a Mayan cooking workshop, and so much more.

Lots of fun and surprises await!
