      About this trip

      Join us in the tucked away paradise of El Paredon, Guatemala for 5 nights, 6 days as we immerse ourselves in daily surf, yoga, adventure. We’ll spend our week adventuring the laid back Central American atmosphere, and awe-invoking volcanic black-sand beaches where you’ll have the chance to practice daily yoga, catch consistent waves, and relish beautiful sunsets.

      On this retreat, Jenny Clise and Milan Sundaresan will lead you through all the yoga and meditation to move your body and feed your soul. At our rustic boho retreat center, you can enjoy delicious fresh and locally sourced meals prepared by local chefs throughout the day. In addition to our scheduled activities and workshops, there will be plenty of free time to explore the village and beaches on your own. Enjoy journaling over a slow morning coffee, read in a hammock, let us organize a surf lesson for you, relax by the pool, go on a beach run, or take a nap. During our time together, we will also explore the national park on a SUP tour down a beautiful mangrove lined river, and experience the local culture and cuisine through an authentic cooking experience at a local family’s kitchen in the cozy village of El, Paredon. You will also have the option to hike to Pacaya Volcano for sunset one day, replenish with a massage, or visit one of only seven sea-turtle feeding grounds in the world where turtles are present all year round to witness the baby sea turtles hatch and make their way safely to the ocean. Our Retreat will culminate with a beach bonfire where we will join together for a closing ceremony, and a night of fun under the stars.

      Our retreats are for everyone! It doesn't matter what your age, gender, race, weight, height, flexibility and level of experience is - the practice of yoga is for every single being.  New to yoga? We all have to start somewhere and retreats are the perfect space to start and/or grow your practice. Don't worry about how advanced others may be and remember this journey is yours, take all the time and be patient with yourself. If you're new, let us know so we can make sure our teachers are prepped to assist you. 

      2. I've never travelled before and I don't have anyone to go with. Can I come alone?

      Yes!! Before you go, we are here to guide you and get you prepared as much as possible for this retreat and travel experience. With us, you're never alone! We set up a group chat to communicate with one week prior to the retreat to check in and update each other as you start your travel from where ever you may be. We'll pair you up with a roommate, who will most likely end up being a lifelong friend.  You may come alone, but you'll end up leaving with a community of like minded people who will forever be connected through this experience. 

      3. What do I need to pack?

      30 days before your retreat, we'll send you a guide of what to pack and bring. 

      4. What type of travel insurance do I need and why is it mandatory?

      Your insurance will need to cover emergency medical and trip cancellation/interruption. This is to protect you in case of any unforeseen circumstances either before or on your retreat. 

      5. Do you offer monthly payment plans?

      Yes! Once you've paid the deposit amount, the remainder of your balance can be split and paid by the remaining months left until the full balance is due.  For example, if the total retreat is $1,800 USD and you pay your $500 deposit in November - starting from December to June (7 months) you will pay a monthly fee of $186 USD. If you would like this option, once you've paid your deposit please email us at to set up a payment plan for you.

      By Margaret O for Ignite Your Fire: Iceland 2023 NYE Retreat with Kelly Smith on 17 Jan, 2023
      We enjoyed the retreat and all the phenomenal food and excursions. Getting around in our mini bus/van made everything easy. Our driver was great too! The venue was the absolute best. Our room was comfortable and the entire place was great. Daniela was personable and made sure everyone had what they needed! Kelly lead good yoga classes and it was a great start to the new year. Loved 108 sun salutations.
      By Bev M for Ignite Your Fire: Iceland 2023 NYE Retreat with Kelly Smith on 12 Jan, 2023
      It was a fantastic experience! I am so grateful to Daniela and Kelly for organizing such a wonderful time. Even when things didn't go to plan (weather emergencies etc.) They had great back up ideas and the ability to roll with the punches to make sure we always had a great time! It was truly a magical trip.
