Writing Down the Chakras


Package Dates

Immerse yourself on the path of beauty at Lake Atitlan in the Mayan highlands of Guatemala for a week of Yoga as Muse—a mix of chakra-focused yoga and writing practice.

Experience the seven major energy centers, discovering tools and techniques to balance and align your energy.

Both the upward and downward current of energy must flow for optimal health. As Anothea Judith writes in The Wheel of Life, “The liberating current brings us excitement, energy, and novelty, while the descending current brings peace, grace and stability.”

In a one-on-one or small-group setting (max. 6), we’ll tune in to our energy and intuition through the shared practices of yoga, meditation, and writing.

Align with your heart’s deepest desires and live with purpose, trust and presence from the heart.

Take home healthy habits and empowering practices that will enhance your personal wellbeing and nurture your intuitive intelligence.

The creative mind is embodied in our physical human form. By moving our bodies in particular ways and thus gaining heightened body awareness, we also gain self-knowledge. This is a continual, lifelong process, as our bodies and minds are in constant flux. Why not make it fun and creative?
