Yoga & Culture in Guatemala

Come join Jeanne Heileman at a sacred resort nestled in the harbor of the Lake Atitlan, described as “the most beautiful lake in the world,” by Alexander von Humboldt, and, “too much of a good thing,” by Aldous Huxley.  Lake Atitlan has a power that is comparable to the Ganges in India, boasting the same healing and loving energy as the Divine Mother.  Surrounded by three volcanoes, this uniquely picturesque and tranquil retreat center has tastefully designed rooms each featuring lake and volcanic peak views. Along the shores are a dozen villages where life and customs have changed little over the centuries, each offering a rich and varied tapestry of food, color, language and culture. 

 

During our time together we will explore the Mahavidyas, the ten Tantric visions of the Divine Goddess, while being fully supported by our surroundings. These deities from the Hindu tradition are aspects of the Supreme deity, in the feminine form.  Each has a lesson to teach us, each has insights for us to invite into our life and habits. 

 

Each morning will offer meditation, pranayama and a deep yoga session, themed around one of the goddesses.  The afternoon sessions will take you into deeper explorations of the same theme or unique practices with a new goddess. In addition to two planned excursions, you will have plenty of free time to explore the resort to kayak, hike, swim, receive a variety of distinctive treatments or explore the local towns. You will return home rested, inspired, reset with a new routine and life-long friends made from your trip.

Are there group airfares?

There are no group airfares, as we will have people joining us from all over the US, with some arriving early, some arriving late, some using miles, etc. There are some great do it your self options and we have had great success finding well priced flight options through Expedia, Kayak & Google flights.

Are airport transfers included in the price of my trip?

No. Airport transfers are not included in the total trip price.

 

The retreat center does provide a shuttle service from the airport directly to the retreat facility. We will help to facilitate shuttle groups closer to the date of departure once we have received more individual flight arrival details.

No, gratuities are not included. We recommend giving a tip between $6-$8 per day to Villa Sumaya. This Dana (offering) goes to the entire staff; from the gardeners (who carry your bags), to kitchen staff and housekeeping to the local managers. Please tip body workers and tour guides separately. 

Can I drink the local water in Guatemala?

No! It is extremely important that you ONLY drink bottled water during your time in Guatemala. Unlimited purified water will be available for you at Villa Sumaya. Bottled water will be readily available at Villa Sumaya and in shops and markets. Please be sure to use bottled water for everything, including brushing your teeth.
