I am incredibly grateful to Yuval and German for curating a truly magical 7-day yoga sound healing retreat on the breathtaking Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. The serene surroundings and Yuval's expert guidance created an atmosphere of profound tranquility. Each day brought new revelations, and the combination of yoga and sound healing was truly transformative. Yuval teachings not only deepened my practice but also enriched my overall well-being. The retreat was a journey of self-discovery, and I left feeling rejuvenated and inspired. Thank you both for an unforgettable experience that will stay with me always.

This yoga retreat in Guatemala exceeded all expectations. The serene environment, nestled beside the soothing remote lake, provided the perfect backdrop for relaxation and rejuvenation. Yuval, German and Jon-Luke guided and assisted with transformative sessions, tailored to all levels of yogi. Excursions and healer sessions were varied and metamorphic. The accommodations were very comfortable and clean, and the nutritious meals were a delight. Overall, a truly exceptional experience for mind, body, and soul. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a holistic wellness retreat.

It's hard to put into words the joy and fun that Yuval & Gee bring to everything they do. I would seriously follow them anywhere! They have a way of connecting people and making you feel like family. I thought Villa Sumaya was a fantastic location for this retreat; with all its nooks and crannies, you could find a secluded area to sit and read a book, even when the report is fully booked. The resort is cleverly spaced out, but beware of all the steps! If you have bad knees, you may want to request a lower-level room. My room was 55 steps up, but I loved how it strengthened my legs & rear:) In regards to the food- YUM! I even bought the cookbook so that I could try to recreate the amazing dishes. The drive to the resort from Guatemala City is winding and a bit long- but totally worth it when you arrive with Yuval & Gee waiting for you with open arms.

Retreats with Yuval and Herman are unlike any other. It's such a unique blend of play, healing and natural settings that soothe your soul. Everything is both intensely vibrant and beautifully low key. There's with an immediate sense of community that feels in no way obligatory, and a perfectly curated schedule that is deeply restorative and fun. Highly, highly recommend!!!

Villa Sumaya has been my first retreat with Yuval and Germane. It will be hard to beat! The traveling, the stays, the support and the entire retreat were seamless. Each phase of the process was given personal attention to every detail. Any and all concerns have been handled with effortlessness and an immediate response. Each day on the retreat flowed and cascaded so well into the next. Each day a continuation of the one before. Everyone was treated with individual and genuine kindness. I am a forever groupie! Villa Sumaya is beautiful and the people there are equally beautiful. Every member was attentive and you are always greeted with a smile. The food, the grounds and the setting are all beyond expectation.. This is forever a part of me. Deepest gratitude and respect! Namaste

Today is the official last day of this amazing Guatemala retreat and I don’t want it to end. It had the perfect combination of Yuval’s expertise in yoga, meditation and sound healing with fun activities to get to know the area. Being on lake Atitlán is a powerful experience. The water, sun, and the volcanos are a tremendous source of energy. Being in Yuval’s classes, workshops, retreats are transformational and super fun at the same time.
