Jul 6 – Jul 13 all-day

WHEN SUN MEETS MOON: GUATEMALAN YOGA RETREAT TO BALANCE BODY AND SPIRIT

Relish seven days and nights along the tranquil shores of Lake Atitlan, “the place where the rainbow gets its colors,” in the highlands of Guatemala. Join Amberly and Nerissa on this physical and spiritual yoga retreat for a week of asana practice, introspection, and relaxation.

Energize your body with the opportunity to take part in multiple daily yoga classes of different styles. We will be offering daily Vinyasa classes as well as the chance to practice more relaxing styles such as Yin and Restorative Yoga. You’ll even have the chance to practice Kundalini to energize not only your body but also to help you align and awaken your chakras. With opportunities throughout the week to strengthen and awaken your vitality in the mornings, there will be time to relax and recharge in the evenings. We’ll spend the week balancing the body’s Sun and Moon energies through yoga, meditation, and adventure to leave you in harmony with nature and in tune with the frequencies of your heart.

Spend your days doing as much or as little as you like, all while enjoying homemade vegetarian meals and immersing yourself in the culture of the Maya in “the land of eternal spring.” Included in your tuition are an authentic Maya Shaman ceremony and a volunteer opportunity to give back to the local community with a Karma yoga service project. Reconnect with Mother Nature with opportunities for kayaking, hiking, visiting local villages, or a simple morning walk. Want to take it a bit easier? Spend the day relaxing by the pool. Feel the need to be pampered? A full-service spa and sauna are available to nourish tired muscles after long adventurous days.

7 Nights Accommodations
3 Delicious Vegetarian Meals Each Day
Round-Trip Group Transport to/from the Airport
Daily Yoga Practices
Karma Yoga Service Project
Shaman Ceremony
Personal Retreat Time (having time to nap, explore, walk, read, and just be)

About the leaders

AMBERLY FOX

Nerissa and Amberly are friends and yoga studio partners, who want to offer students a comprehensive yoga practice and retreat. They are two sides of a coin, one yin and the other yang, so they can provide an individualized practice based on each student’s needs. Nerissa offers a more challenging, strenuous practice to get you out of your comfort zone. Transformation and growth are never comfortable. Amberly offers a more relaxed and nurturing practice to help you reset. Together, they are bound together like the sun and moon, and their aim is to help you find more balance and harmony in your life.

Elizabeth Brumfield ~ SACRED SOUND HEALING & YIN YOGA RETREAT
Jan 4 – Jan 11 all-day

Reconnect with your natural self and heal in a magical way amidst the Sacred Mayan Energy of Lake Atitlan.

Heal and restore your body with daily Yin Yoga classes gazing out at Lake Atitlan and its two majestic volcanos. Yin Yoga is essential to our Yang active lifestyle. This slower-paced yet challenging class will improve circulation, improve flexibility, release fascia and improve joint mobility. It also brings a balance to internal organs and heightens our flow of chi (or prana).

In addition to our daily Yin Yoga classes, enjoy rejuvenating, nightly 432hz Crystal Bowls, Tibetan Bowls and Planetary Gong Sound Healing sessions in our gentle wooden shala. Sound Healing is an effective tool for influencing our emotional and physical bodies. Each unique sound vibration resonates with our energetic and physical planes to offer the following benefits:

Guatemala Yoga Retreats Releases Emotional Trauma
Induces Complete Relaxation
Unlocks blocked emotions
