Our SEVA Project

The Sanskrit word Seva means service. As part of our week we will practice Seva by supporting a local community. I will post information about this section of our retreat in early 2018.

Sample Schedule

Day 1… July 14
Your adventure in Guatemala begins with a 45-minute boat ride across lake Atitlan. We will gather together to celebrate our arrival and the beginning of our retreat with a delicious meal. We will end our first evening with a practice of deep relaxation called Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep).

Day 2… July 15
Wake up in Guatemala…aaah. Stroll to a not too early morning yoga class beside the lake. Enjoy a scrumptious breakfast and a day of your own making which might include, taking in Sumaya’s beauty, swimming, kayaking, getting a massage, or a multitude of oth-er options. In the afternoon we will reconvene for companionship and yoga.

Day 3… July 16
After a vibrant yoga practice and another delightful breakfast, our day continues with a scenic boat ride across the lake to Santiago. We will visit historic sights, look at primitive paintings, beadwork and handcrafted woodwork of this independent and modern Ma-ya village. When we return to Villa Sumaya, enjoy the rest of your day on your own. How about a massage?
