Description

Join us for 4 nights and 4 days at the beautiful Posada de Santiago on Lake Atitlán in Guatemala to get strong, centered, and in alignment with your soul purpose. Together, we’ll drop into morning and evening meditation, yoga, journaling, HIIT, strength training, and adventures around the magical lake. Plus as much relaxing in the sunshine by the lakeside pool as you need.

Our days will focus on finding your inner and outer strength. We’ll sweat, flow, write, explore, reflect, connect, eat amazing food, kayak, and adventure as much or as little our spirits need. Each day will include:

  • Guided meditation, yoga, HIIT and strength training classes morning and evening in the new lakeside palapa

  • Hammocks galore to read, nap, and journal in

  • Endless access to the Posada’s pool, jacuzzi and sauna right on the lake, and kayaks and canoes to explore

  • Vast lake and volcano views

  • Evenings soaking in the hot tub under big starry skies, talking life and dreams

For those who want, we’ll also spend our afternoons with optional:

  • Spanish language classes and cultural excursions with the local founders of the community microenterprise Ruk’ux

  • Adventures around Lake Atitlan. There are so many options for sweet places to tuck into! Markets, winding alleys, art galleries, horseback riding into the cloud forest, hopping around village to village in a boat, hiking the Mirador, climbing a volcano, and even learning to weave.

  • The best massages! Just $30/hour.

The Posada, our homebase for the retreat, is one of our favorite places on Earth- packed with vast views of jungle, volcanoes and Lake Atitlán. Its fresh farm-to-table meals are ones we dream of while when we’re back in the States. As Lonely Planet describes it, "Striking a balance between rustic charm and luxury, the American-owned posada makes a great retreat. Cottages and Suites, all with stone walls, fireplaces, porches, hammocks and folk art, are set around gardens stretching up from the lake." And, in line with our goal to tap into doing good and giving back, the Posada plays an integral part in the Santiago Atitlán community, employing thirty Tzutujil Mayans.
