It is with immense pleasure that I introduce you to this life transformational spiritual well-being retreat. In November 2017, I landed on this sacred land and it changed my life forever. If you are seeking a life-changing experience, you are at the right place.
As a Chopra Total Well-Being Coach with an extensive background, experiences, and with the power of the Guatemalan volcanoes, your life will not be the same after this retreat. This is the spiritual experience you have been waiting for. Are you ready?
Join me at my Spiritual Well-Being Retreat 2022.
The Yoga Forest is a sacred location, set on the edge of a cliff above an Ancient Mayan altar, overlooking the lake Atitlán and several volcanoes.
The Yoga Forest is a unique sanctuary, perfect for hosting our Spiritual Well-Being Retreat 2022.
It was founded as an exploration of deep green yoga, through a desire for living simply, greenly and in communion with everything surrounding us. The Yoga Forest is located in San Marcos la Laguna, in the western highlands of Guatemala.
The Yoga Forest is a living breathing entity. It is constantly evolving and growing and in a state of transformation. This means the Forest is an organic process and teaches us the joys of change, nature and family. At any time guests may find other retreat groups, teacher training, personal retreaters and wellness staff, as well as a friendly team of local staff creating, serving and maintaining the property.
The Shiva Temple space offers our unique open air circular 10m high bamboo structure temple space. It is set into a cliff with small waterfall with running water 9 months of the year. The temple features a natural spring plunge pool and secret gardens.
