About this trip

Sometimes the best way to reconnect to your life is to take a step outside, both into nature and out of your daily routine. We invite you to pause and exhale. Take an honest and creative dive inward and awaken to the fullest expression of yourself surrounded by the majestic volcanoes and resplendent waters of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Join Stephanie and Anne at Villa Sumaya, an eco-resort nestled in a secluded lakefront cove, for an exclusive retreat to remind you of your connection to others, to nature and to your own heart. Reset and reconnect in this 5-day retreat, immersing yourself in the healing aspects of daily meditation, yoga and self-exploratory writing. Spend your days hiking to nearby towns, swimming in the pristine lake, or simply lounging in a hammock enjoying the splendor and tranquility of your surroundings. Together we’ll also spend a day exploring a local Mayan village to connect with the people and culture which surround the deepest lake in Central America. Our adventure will close with a Fire Ceremony, thought to be one of the most powerfully transformative rituals in the Mayan culture.

We welcome you to awaken and uncover the light that shines from within, so you can go forth in the world as a beacon of your truest self.

5 Nights accommodation at the beautiful Villa Sumaya

Anne believes yoga has the power to transform one's life from the inside out, providing students the tools to bring strength and ease into their lives to confidently face whatever life experiences come their way. Her classes emphasize mindfulness, alignment and a strong connection to breath in order to build strength, flexibility, and mental clarity. She is a certified E-RYT-200 (Yoga Tree, San Francisco) and RYT-500 (Brenna Geehan and Jean Mazzei at Sri Yoga). http://www.annegregoryyoga.com/ Stephanie's goal as a teacher is to hold a space for students to find liberation; providing guidance in asana (physical poses), mediation and pranayama (breath work) to invigorate the body and quiet the mind. Her teaching incorporates intuitive hands-on assistance, driven by her passion for helping student’s deepen their practice and find space in poses not otherwise attainable. Registered 200hr.

What a magical trip! This retreat was extremely well organized and the itinerary was perfect to reset and reconnect. Transportation around the lake and to and from the airport was a breeze thanks to Steph and Anne! We did approximately 2-3 yoga sessions a day and had a great amount of time to partake in a lot of other excursions: volcano hikes, kayaking, swimming, site-seeing... just to name a few. There were also some scheduled "field trip" to explore the culture + art around the lake. Needless to say, our group was able to settle and relax at our own pace, and we became a family by the end of the trip :) I would highly recommend this to any new or advanced yogi; I can't wait to set out on my next adventure with these two lovely yogi leaders!
Anne and Stephanie are a wonderful Yoga team and I would highly recommend any retreats they are running! Just being around them is healing; they both have such calming energy. Getting away from it all on one of their retreats is a great reset and helps you think deeply about what you really want and how to move forward with your goals. The retreat has a nice balance with two yoga practices a day and plenty of free time. My favorite part was yoga nidra or yogic sleep: a very deep relaxed state that leaves you feeling refreshed when you are done! I can't recommend these yoga retreats highly enough! Do yourself a favor and book now!
