January 13 - 20, 2024
Have you been dreaming of tuning into your rhythm by a sacred lake surrounded by 7 holy volcanos? We know it’s a hard one to beat. Join Shannon Liebel and Manas Itene at Villa Sumaya, Guatemala for an incredible 7 night drum and yoga retreat. High Vibrations is a unique retreat curated with the intention of returning you to your highest vibration using the power of hand drums, yoga and the local Mayan traditions.
Each day will include yoga and meditation, a group drum lesson and circle, a traditional Mayan ceremony or live music by Manas, delicious food and time to explore. An example of a day with Manas and Shannon at High Vibrations begins with a morning drum circle or drum lesson to get us in complete rhythm with our highest selves followed by a meal and time to explore the surrounding villages, their crafts and creations. Return to your lakeside home for sunset yoga and meditation with Shannon and then close out the evening with a deeply grounding traditional Mayan led sweat lodge ceremony.
This week-long retreat is open to everyone no matter your yoga or drum experience level. We are all here to learn and to grow, you do not have to know your rhythm or touch your toes, you will be joining so Shannon and Manas can help you find your rhythm and power.

In her youth, Shannon trained in artistic and acrobatic gymnastics and competed at the elite and international level. Shannon received a BA in Psychology and MA in Clinical Counseling. When she discovered yoga in 2005, it was the perfect balance of the mental work she enjoyed in Psychology and the physical movement of the body that she loved in gymnastics. Shannon received her RYT 200 with Yax Yoga Concepts in 2012 and began teaching right away, and then opened her studio in Lake Tahoe in 2016. Nine months after the studio opened, Shannon had open heart surgery and this experience only strengthened her belief in the power of yoga. In 2018, she furthered her education and trained in Thailand with Beyond Bryce to receive her RYT 500, and also received her FRCms with Functional Anatomy seminars later that year. Shannon strongly believes in the connection between mind, body, and soul, and this reflects in her Vinyasa style teaching. She is the owner of Still Water Yoga Lake Tahoe, LLC, teaches daily classes, facilitates workshops and yoga teacher trainings, runs international yoga retreats around the world, and teaches at a variety of yoga festivals in the US.
