About this trip

Remove the daily distractions and reconnect to yourself in a place designed to cultivate peace and clarity. You are invited to reconnect with your self through a daily yoga practice incorporating Pranyama (breathwork), philosophy, healing and empowering yoga classes, guided meditation, and Restorative yoga practices. We will nourish our bodies with a plant-based diet made by our personal world class chefs, pamper our bodies with healing spa treatments, play in the ocean, enjoy the peace of every sunset, and relish the time we have gifted ourselves.

OUR RETREAT CENTER- IMILOA

You will be immersed in a 22-acre jungle oasis in Dominical, Costa Rica.

This enchanted mountainside jungle venue is ten minutes from the beach and it is the perfect setting to experience deep healing, embraced by nature, yet completely luxurious.

While staying at Imiloa you will enjoy our nature paths, our private waterfall, our salt-water pool, stunning views and delicious and nutritious meals by our five-star vegan chef.

A million thanks to Suzanne with Flow Yoga Adventures for a magical week in Lake Atilan Guatemala. The retreat was perfectly curated offering the perfect blend of heath, wellness and safe adventure. My expectations were exceeded every possible way from the moment I made my deposite to the time I landed back in Denver. No detail was missed. Suzanne’s passion for travel, Yoga and people make her the perfect person to trust when planning your next adventure. I can’t wait to travel with Flow Yoga Adventures again and this is coming from someone that only does yoga periodically.

This was the experience of a lifetime! Such an amazing location, facility, and staff. Suzanne is absolutely excellent in facilitating her yoga retreats! The itinerary had a perfect balance of scheduled vs. unscheduled time to allow for unwinding/relaxation as well as focused activities/times. I appreciated the freedom to join in group activities or go off on solo exploring easily and without having to make a tough choice/choose between one or the other, there was ample opportunities for both. The daily yoga sessions were amazing, with varied times and styles that perfectly complimented the days activities. All ability levels were easily accommodated by Suzanne's lovely intuitive teaching style and I felt both challenged and capable in each class. I loved the options for adventure - like hiking & paddle boarding - and also the extensive spa/relaxation/healing therapies available on-site. Mind, body & soul were all well attended to :) The food was outstanding, above and beyond anything I imagined. Not being vegetarian I was a bit worried about being hungry...not to worry at all! The meals were so varied and plentiful and filling, I would easily be vegetarian at home if I could cook like that! And the option to add chicken or fish was always available. I couldn't get enough of the self-service tea/coffee bar, and the house kombucha! Villa Sumaya was impeccable in it's comfort, service, and carefully curated style and design. From the comfortable and clean room, to the amazing sitting areas and reading nooks, to the lakeside lounging decks and yoga areas, I loved every bit of the property. For it's listing as a 'modest' accommodation in a 3rd world country, I felt all my needs were perfectly met and cared for the entire time. I would return to Lake Atitlan & Villa Sumaya, especially with Flow Yoga, in a heartbeat! I feel so rejuvinated and refreshed upon return home, and will cherish the special moments, growth, and memories with the group of amazing people, in such an amazing place, for years to come. Thank you Suzanne/Flow Yoga & Villa Sumaya. Julia, SW Colorado

Aww every word makes me just smile Julia! Thank you for taking the leap of faith in joining me even though we hadn't met. I hope to see you on another trip soon!

The most amazing, spiritual and healing retreat. Suzanne has a gift for running an organized, SAFE, enlightening, and best of all recharging and relaxing trip. Villa Sumaya is incredible. The staff was friendly and helpful and I felt safe there. The vegetarian food was healthy and delicious (I surprised myself as I didn't even miss animal protein). The property has little peaceful, beautiful pockets around every corner. The healers on property are magical. From yoga to Mayan ceremonies to hiking and paddle boarding adventures there is an activity for everyone. Simply sitting on the dock reading and taking in the wonder that is Lake Atitlan is enough to fill your heart. JUST GO! You won't regret it.
By Val V for Yoga Adventures at Lake Atitlan, Guatamala on 02 May, 2022
What a beautiful testimonial! Thanks Val; so grateful you joined us and got out of the retreat what you needed. Can’t wait for you to join us again soon!

Suzanne is an amazing yoga instructor and adventure planner. She knows the perfect balance of planning activities and allowing time for you to explore on your own. Lake Atitlan, Guatemala was my 5th Flow Yoga Adventure and I love the trips so much I have already booked Peru for next year. Lake Atitlan was a special retreat and a must add for any Yogi/ adventurer spirit!!
