About this trip

Escape with Kristin Khederian and Antonio Aniello to the remote paradise of Lake Atitlan, an ancient crater lake located in the heart of Guatemala.


This retreat will provide you with the perfect opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of life, and explore a magical part of the world that will open your mind and perspective to what could be. 


The trip begins with an overnight stay in the beautiful, colonial city of Antigua, where the group will assemble, and your first taste of life in Guatemala will be enjoyed. We will then make our way to Isla Verde, a unique and beautiful, lakefront retreat center with a laid back vibe. Our days will include daily and always optional Yoga & Pilates classes with Kristin & Antonio, delicious locally sourced meals, as well as plenty of time for relaxation and rejuvenation amongst the energetic vortex that is Lake Atitlan. 


Outdoor lovers will have the opportunity to partake in many adventurous activities throughout our week including kayaking, hiking, and stand up paddle boarding. We will also have plenty of opportunity to experience the ancient Mayan culture of Lake Atitlan. Boat rides are readily available to visit neighboring villages where you can take in some amazing people watching, local foods, markets, and some of the best textile and arts shopping in Central America.


Come experience the magic of Guatemala with an amazing group of people! This trip will change your life... if you let it.


A $500 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your spot. DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS 12/15. Payment plans available! Email kristin@solseedretreats.com with any questions. 


About Your Retreat Leaders:


Kristin & Antonio met in 2012 while teaching Yoga and Pilates at their home studio, South Boston Yoga. They immediately connected over their love of travel, music, and being tan year round... kidding, sort of. ;) Since then, they have led multiple retreats together to exciting destinations such as Nicaragua, Guatemala, Mexico, the Azores and Cape Cod. 


Kristin & Antonio are both extremely passionate about changing people's lives through movement and travel. They truly love bringing together groups of adventurous people, and holding space on these incredible, life-changing retreats. They encourage you to come as you are, and be open to the possibilities that exist while exploring a new place. As long as you have an open mind and a longing for adventure and FUN, we guarantee you will have an amazing time on their "not your average" retreats.

I had a wonderful time. Great scenery, well organized tours, will definitely recommend. Thank you!

The island of San Miguel, Azores is an easy direct destination. It is empatative that you check on where you are staying on the island or you will spend more time in a van or car than relaxing, hiking or practicing yoga. There are beautiful vistas, great food and wonderful people on this island. Sadly we only had one practice a day and that was in a studio without any heat, a concrete floor that held the damp cold of the season, and no time before practice to even warm our bodies due to a scheduled meditation which excluded any prepatory practice. The inn’s owners were lovely and insured we had amazing food served largely from their own garden. But due to being in the heart of the older orange grove arigrucultural area where the roads were narrow without sidewalksand blocked on either side by high walls, all with gnashing and feriocious guard dogs that stalked and barked at everyone passing, So that walking anywhere was taking your life in your own hands to avoid being killed by the maniacal Portuguese drivers, The levels of our fellow travelers were quite Aires’s between those who had never practiced to those of us who were looking to experience the “ Primal Adventures with Todd Sklogund” that was promised when we signed on. Sadly “Primary Experience” would have been a better description of our retreat. Think twice before booking your trip!
This trip was a soul nourishing experience. It included daily yoga, but so much more. We stayed in an outstanding guest house (MINUVIDA) where the hosts shared their passion for fresh, locally grown food - much of it from their gardens and orchards - and for the beautiful island on which they live. We loved the hikes, vistas, and hot springs. Sol Seed Retreats, and owner Kristin in particular, could not have been nicer or more helpful. She was informative in preparing us for the trip, and was available to assist with special needs and requests while we were there.
