About this trip

Escape with Nina Petruzzo and Jenna Zabrosky to Lake Atitlan, a magical 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 remote part of the world that will open your heart and your 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 classes with Nina & Jenna, delicious locally sourced meals, as well as plenty of time for relaxation, rejuvenation and reflection 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, and give back by volunteering at a local preschool. 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. :)

About Your Retreat Leaders:


Nina and Jenna met where else, but a yoga studio in San Diego. They became fast friends sharing interests in yoga, travel, the ocean, and connecting within their local community. Jenna is a highly regarded San Diego based E-RYT 200 hour teacher and Nina, a certified 500 RYT Smart Flow yoga teacher sharing her passion for yoga in San Diego and Cape Cod yoga communities. Both Nina and Jenna's teachings offer skillful alignment, intelligent sequencing, and steady attention to the breath creating an environment of inquiry, integrity, and playfulness in their classes. Their hope is to offer challenging yet compassionate space for their students to curiously explore their practice enabling a sense of mindfulness, awareness, joy, kindness, and acceptance both on and off their mats. Jenna and Nina will be offering vinyasa, restorative, pranayama, and mindfulness/meditation practices throughout the retreat.

Had the most amazing trip with the most amazing host, Molly :) Her energy was radiant through out the trip, I was very pleased! Would highly recommend any trip with Molly!
Part of the reason why I took this trip is because I wanted to go to Morocco but I was scared of going alone as a female traveler who speaks a very small amount of high school French. The accommodations were great throughout the 3 cities we traveled and having all the meals, excursions and inter-city travel covered by the Solseed Team was awesome. They even sorted out getting our luggage from shuttles to hotels - there were no logistics we had to think about the entire trip, outside of our flights. Solseed also did a great job of cherry picking destinations on this trip - felt like our time was really well budgeted and they gave us great leads on what to do/where. Taghazout felt like a hidden gem that I would never have considered and Essaouira was another small city that I may not have made it to on my own. They did a great job scouting. The yoga & pilates classes were great - they were outside which was refreshing. (bring a few extra layers.) Our trip was a mix of some seasoned yogis and lots of less experienced folks - Kristin and Antonio did a good job of creating classes that had something for everybody. Yoga is my jam and I love a really hard class, so I think next time I might look for a group that is a bit more hardcore on that front, but that's not how this trip was billed at the get-go. They really took care of everyone on the trip and it was an amazing experience. Highly recommend this team to anyone looking for a great vacation.
Just amazing! Everything. Thank you!

Such an amazing trip! Well organized, wonderful people, great times! Forever grateful 🙏
Most amazing experience I’ve had to date. We went hiking, to natural hot springs, took a cooking class in a locals home, went horse back riding, practiced yoga with an incredible view, and ate delicious local food. The island and resort are beautiful. I met so many amazing people and made friendships that I am so thankful for. Everything was planned for us it was so nice. I highly recommend this company & retreat. I’m already thinking of signing up for another!
