About this trip

Venture to the shorelines of Lake Atitlán, for an all inclusive stay at the eco-chic wellness center Villa Sumaya! Soak in the landscapes of the 3 surrounding volcanoes, crystal blue waters, and lush nature. 

This incredible off-grid experience will be the perfect WINTER GIFT to yourself.  Travel to this magical spot to nourish, reconnect, and unwind your vitality and spirit. 

Sunrise practice paired with guided meditation, and midday workshops taken at your leisure. Built in time to lay in a hammock, explore, and relax individually or as a group. 

Excursions are included! Day trip to Santiago and volcano hike. Experience a sacred Mayan fire ceremony led by a local Shaman and an evening of SoundBath healing. 

There will be built in free time to indulge in soothing on-site bodywork at the Harmony Spa, or lounge by the pool, hot tub, or set an appointment for a sweat Lodge cleansing. Even consider a trip around the lake via boat + guide. You are fully supported to find your rhythm and give yourself exactly what you need each moment of each day!

We gather an incredible community of practitioners and friends who want to dive deep, be real, & laugh a ton!

Ashley Comer, Hatha Yoga & Pranayama Teacher

I am a world traveler, mother of 3, business owner, and local yoga teacher. I teach balance to calm the nervous system with diaphragmatic breath exercises. In my classes, I build vitality with creative sequencing, moving to stretch and strengthen your body and mind. I believe that one’s yoga practice should ultimately lead to a regular meditation practice to achieve a deep level of relaxation and clarity in the mind.

Maryellen Baverso, Vinyasa & Mobility Teacher, CEU Educator

I love traveling, teaching, and learning abroad. I began teaching yoga as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Indonesia. I taught English and started a women’s leadership club at school, where we applied yoga as a tool to build community and to individually feel more confident in ourselves. I’ve continued my education and journey as a teacher and believe in a consistent movement and mediation practice. In my class, experience intentional movement that’s joyful, purposeful, and intuitive. I specialize in teaching beginners, YogaTuneUp (myofascial therapy ball rolling), and functional mobility, while offering hands-on assists.  IG : @meb_pgh

**Highly Recommend consulting us with scheduling your Flight and organizing your travel arrangements. 

**An optional few days in the beautiful colonial city of Antigua (before or after retreat week), is a great option for extra time/experience in Guatemala. Happy to advice, however this option is at your own cost and organization. Please feel free to contact us!
