The Deep Dive: A Full Yoga Immersion / Erin Prichard

February 4 - 11, 2023

Join Erin on an epic journey to one of the most blissful and beautiful places on earth, Lake Atitlán in Guatemala. This is more than just a retreat, it is a chance to fully immerse yourself in yoga, it’s teachings, and nature.

This colossal week will entail all of the elements of a training, without the teaching aspect! You can opt in or out of as much as you want throughout the week. We will be exploring the rich philosophies and teachings of yoga by looking at it’s history and a few important texts. We will have discussions on how to live an embodied yoga practice and what the philosophies mean in a practical way.

We will have workshops to breakdown asanas, as well as pranayama and chanting to gain a deeper understanding for your own practice. You will also have plenty of time to enjoy the astounding beauty of the lake and to relax, renew, and recharge. A full reset!
