Radiance & Refuge - The Healing Power of Yoga in Guatemala

Join Erika Trice for a week of deep healing at this exclusive retreat center located on the shores of the Lake Atitlan, described as “the most beautiful lake in the world,” by Alexander von Humboldt. Surrounded by three volcanoes, this uniquely picturesque and tranquil location has tastefully designed rooms each featuring lake and volcanic peak views. Along the lake are a dozen villages where life and customs have changed little over the centuries, each offering a rich and tapestry of food, color, language, and culture. 
 
Each morning will begin with qigong, pranayama, and meditation followed by a dynamic asana practice. The late afternoons/early evenings sessions will explore a softer more inwardly focused practice leading towards meditation. This will be an immersion into the profound healing effects of yoga. Included in our exploration will also be philosophy and chakra work. Between practices, days will be yours to explore, hike, swim in the gorgeous lake or visit the local communities. We will gather together for delicious meals and share our experiences. This week will be an immersion both in asana and in life.
