Day 1

Arrive at The Yoga Forest at Lake Atitlán. Learn about the history, permaculture, and intention of the retreat space during a grounds tour and settle into your cabana before dinner.

Day 2

Experience a powerful sound meditation. Nāda Yoga (नादयोग) is an ancient Indian metaphysical system. It is equally a philosophical system, a medicine, and a form of yoga. The system's theoretical and practical aspects are based on the premise that the entire cosmos and all that exists in the cosmos, including human beings, consists of sound vibrations, called nāda.

Lay back on your mat and enjoy the yoga of listening as we are serenaded in a unique shower of shamanic soundscape with instruments from all over the world.

Day 3

Tap into your inner power and cleverness to make the impossible possible. Deepen your connection to nature and overcome your fears during a rock climbing clinic.

A diversity of routes makes an enjoyable experience for beginners and advanced climbers alike. To guarantee your safety you will be guided by highly trained instructors who can help and lead you through different forms and skill levels of climbing.

Day 4

Treat your body to a ninety-minute holistic approach to massage therapy using a system of long gliding strokes, kneading, and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of muscles, generally in the direction of blood flow toward the heart, combined with active and passive movements of the joints. It is used to promote general relaxation, improve circulation and range of motion, and relieve muscle tension. Integrative Massage includes deep tissue work and acupressure to access the energy pathways or meridians of the body to release blocked energy. The rebalance of energy flow releases tension and restores function of organs and muscles in the body, whilst promoting relaxation.

Day 5

Wake up with a sunrise Stand Up Paddle expedition in the middle of Lake Atitlán. Challenge your balance in a playful way that you surely won’t forget.

Day 6

Meditation volunteering .

Day 7

Meditation sauna.

Day 8

Wake up with a morning meditation and flow, enjoy a final fresh breakfast before packing up and heading to the airport.
