Nurture Through Nature ~ A Spring Equinox Yoga Retreat
March 19 - 22, 2023 at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
"True beauty is a ray that springs from the sacred depths of the soul." ~ Rumi
Join us in paradise, at the beautiful Casa CobAnanda, a private property nestled on an avocado grove with beautiful views of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. You’ll experience rich Mayan culture, sustainable lifestyles, and a vibrant Yoga community.
Awaken and cleanse your body, mind, and spirit as we step into the beauty of a new season. Spring is a time to shed the darker, sometimes heavy energy accumulated during winter, and for gradually “lightening up.”
In this retreat, we’ll focus on invigorating the body’s detoxification processes and bringing in warmth to nurture seeds of renewal. Together we’ll explore practices to help set a clear intention for the coming season, to support release where it is needed, and offer space for healing and abundance.
The retreat will include daily meditation, yoga, and mantra chanting. As well, we’ll receive a Sweat Lodge, Cacao Ceremony, and group meditation walk to the lake.
