Flow For The Week
Our week will be guided by and aligned with the pace of nature, rooted in yogic practices and inspired by Mayan healing traditions as we seek to achieve a state of balance and renewal. We’ll begin with the setting of intention and inviting clarity of vision into our experience. As our time together unfolds, you’ll be guided to move joyfully and powerfully towards realizing these resolutions and expansions of Self while being nurtured by nature. In between gathering for yoga, meals or ceremony, there will be ample opportunities to take a dip in the lake or pool, soak in the hot tub, detox in the sauna, rejuvenate with a massage, lounge in a hammock or unwind in the many beautiful spaces dedicated to reflection and relaxation. One need never leave the property unless an optional excursion suits your fancy. If you wish to explore outside the retreat grounds, many choices abound, from visiting a local village, to kayaking, hiking volcanoes, ziplining or taking Spanish lessons. Our Concierge will be happy to assist you in scheduling tours and activities.
*All classes and activities are optional. Our program is designed to meet you where you’re at. Practitioners of all levels are welcome, including those with no prior experience.
Certified yoga instructor, Thai yoga massage therapist, Kim Wolff, will facilitate daily classes, providing gentle guidance and focused support while allowing space for each student to find their own connection to the practice. Soulful and playful by nature, Kim’s class sessions are based on Hatha yoga philosophy, postures, breathwork and the principles of Ayurveda. Guided meditation offers students an opportunity to experience a range of techniques emphasizing simple methods that can be integrated into daily life. Mantra and mudra are often incorporated to deepen the experience, while organic aromatherapy is used as a therapeutic tool to assist with balancing mind and mood. Stream of consciousness writing exercises along with journaling prompts assist students in gaining insight to and increasing awareness of their innermost Self. Read Kim’s full bio.
Ritual & Ceremony
Xicoy, the Cacao Spirit, is one of the most playful spiritual guides in ancient Mayan cosmology. A traditional Mayan plant medicine, cacao induces an expansive, mood enhancing quality. It is used to uplift the spirit, open the heart, deepen focus, remove blockages and enhance awareness. Gathering in a sacred circle of celebration, we’ll partake in the ritual sharing of a cacao elixir- an experience that promotes a meditative, reflective state and inspires a sincere sense of joy and heartfelt gratitude.
Mayan Day-Count Fire Ceremony
In the traditional Mayan day-count fire ceremony, beautiful offerings are created and consumed, invoking connectivity with source consciousness while prompting us to leave behind our conditioned concept of self and fueling the fire of our sacred life purpose. Resting in the stillness of the fire’s glow, we’re invited to lighten our load and soothe the scars resultant of life’s challenges, cultivating awareness and acceptance of the role we’ve played in the grand scheme of things.
Chichimeca Sweat Lodge
A Chichimeca purification ceremony includes ritualized practices that connect us with Great Spirit and assist us in finding the power of our own unique voice while releasing all that no longer serves. In a traditional handcrafted lodge heated with hot stones and infused with medicinal plants, we’ll share sacred songs and specially prepared herbal tea to help clear and lift the emotional body, leaving you with a great sense of clarity of mind, openness of heart and physical renewal.
