Weaving, Yoga & Culture in Guatemala / Andrea Marcum
April 29 - May 6, 2023
Lake Atitlán is believed by the Mayans to be the center of the universe. Alexander von Humboldt called it “the most beautiful lake in the world.” Surrounded by a dozen highly preserved Mayan villages and 3 dormant volcanoes, Atitlán is the perfect setting to weave together our yoga and cultural adventure. Weaving is a huge part of Guatemalan history and vivid colorful patterns have been handed down for generations. The culture itself weaves together Mayan mysticism and Spanish influence in a unique fusion. We’ll explore nearby villages, support local artisans, marvel at the colors, textures and traditions, hike a volcano, enjoy a cacao ceremony, take in the smells, sounds and tastes, and basque in majestic sunrises and sunsets reflected in the tranquil waters of our captivating lake. By signing up for this retreat, you will be donating to the Mayan Mother’s Food Fund. We believe positive social impact in action is yoga.
