      In traditional Mayan day-count fire ceremonies, beautiful offerings are created and consumed, invoking awareness and interconnectivity with source consciousness. Resting in the stillness of the fire’s light invites us to journey into the depth of our hearts. Gathering together in appreciation, we honor all living things. The crackling radiance of the ceremonial fire brings us face to face with the wisdom of our ancient instincts to gather in ritual celebration. Within the silent surrender to the blazing glow, we drop into the depth of our spirit’s own true nature.

      The Maya remind us to dwell in the innocent heart of the child, prompting us to leave behind our busy minds and conditioned concept of self. Attentively energizing sacred practice, we unplug from the daily grind, lightening our load of heavy stories and soothing the scars of life’s simple twists of fate. Honoring our beings as one with all, we align with the cycles and flow of nature, cultivating compassion and awareness for our part in the grand play. Intentionally pulsing the inner exploration of our own evolutionary consciousness, we fuel the light of our sacred purpose.

      *You will have an opportunity to meet 1-on-1 with the shaman after for personalized reading based on your birth date (additional cost for 1 on 1, $20 with translator)


      In the spirit of the ancient traditions, join us in a sacred circle of ceremony and celebration centered around the sharing of a cacao elixir. Pure cacao is an authentic plant medicine used to uplift the spirit, deepen focused meditation and strengthen our reconnection with heart centered awareness. Known as the "food of the Gods," cacao has an expansive, mood-enhancing quality that helps us gently shift blockages while realigning us with the path of the heart.

      The yoga retreat in Asturias was a fun filled adventure! The hikes and the guides were phenomenal - educational, just challenging enough and so many sights to behold. The food was delicious and I’m so happy I was able to try a new favorite cheese - Cabrales! Our home base was such a lovely, tranquil place of rest and relaxation and stunning views - including a double rainbow! Suzanne is a master of carefully crafting unique travel experiences with the a centering yoga practice at the core. This was my third Flow Yoga Adventure and I hope not the last!

      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!!
