Lake Atitlán Retreat
Join the Heart Center community for a week of healing, activation, and connection at the powerful vortex of Lake Atitlán in Guatemala.
twice daily yoga
Each day, wake up to an hour of meditation and circle sharing with community, followed by a yoga practice. We will come together again in the evening for a nourishing yoga practice to end the day.
Mayan fire ceremony
An incredible immersion into Mayan astrology and shamanism will awaken your spirit throughout a transformational 4-hour fire ceremony in the sacred cave of the Yoga Forest.
2 nutritious, handmade, garden-grown organic vegetarian meals and one snack per day are included in your retreat package. Enjoy traditional Guatemalan cuisine with global fusion.
Live simply and close to the earth in thatch-roofed huts, comfortable beds, candlelit evenings, and gorgeous views of the lake and mountains. Private outdoor showers and composting toilets are only a few steps up the mountain!
Faith and Owen are so excited to return to our favorite retreat center: The Yoga Forest! This is the place that inspired the creation of The Heart Center, after they led a retreat there in 2018 after Noni was born. The experience was so profound that 8 of the participants commemorated the experience with a tattoo of their Mayan zodiac sign at the end!
This time, we booked out the entire Yoga Forest for our community to come and experience. The transformative power of Lake Atitlán will hold us as we grow together in wisdom, devotion, and connection. We will learn from Mayan wisdom as we immerse ourselves in nature and practice yoga together over the course of 6 days (5 nights). We will spend free time enjoying the sauna, lounging in the trees, hiking in the hills, and taking boats to explore nearby towns. Daily classes will be taught by Heart Center staff, including Faith, Owen, Indigo, Caleb, Kara, and Mary.
