Sthira Sukham Asanam: A Vigorous Vinyasa Retreat Cultivating Steadiness & Joy / Liz Guardia & Bristol Maryott

November 16, 2024 - November 23, 2024


Join Liz and Bristol in beautiful Guatemala for 7 days of pure bliss on the shores of Lago Atitlan. We will witness the Mayan way of life and enjoy stunning views from our yoga home, Villa Sumaya.

Our intention for this retreat is for you to deeply reconnect with yourself, nature and to return home rejuvenated. We will be offering yoga twice a day that will include vigorous asana, pranayama and meditation.

There will also be quiet time scheduled in the itinerary for silence, contemplation and journaling. Our hope is for you to disconnect for a week to truly be present on this journey back to the self.

With stunning vistas of Guatemala’s volcanoes, fresh fruit ALL THE TIME and situated on the shores of Lake Atitlan, Villa Sumaya is the perfect place to connect back to yourself.

This retreat is open to all levels and 10 CEs for certified teachers.
