ACROYOGA RETREAT IN SAN MARCOS LA LAGUNA, GUATEMALA
Join us this February for an in-depth AcroYoga retreat held at the beautiful, all inclusive sanctuary center Eagle’s Nest, in San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala.
This seven day intensive is set up with all you could want. A idyllic view of the Atitlan Lake at the base of San Pedro Volcano with the most beautiful movement space we have found on the planet.
We have worked hard to find the perfect place to create this kind of community, and we are so happy to build a safe space where creativity, human connections and acrobatic skills can flourish.
*-*-*-*-*-*-* THE EAGLE’S NEST *-*-*-*-*-*-*
San Marcos de La Laguna is a 3-4h drive from Guatemala City where you will most likely be landing. You can come on your own, but we’ll be more than happy to arrange transportation to get you to San Marcos, where the retreat will take place.
Eagle’s Nest, as the name suggests, is a beautiful retreat center a little bit up in the mountains ( 15 min walk from the city center and the lake). We’re close enough to town and the lake to have everything that we need, while still being far enough so we feel a little bit away from the rest of the world, creating our own bubble as we learn to know one another and practice all the things that our training has to offer.
San Marcos has a lot of trekking, adventures and a very strong yogi community, making it the ideal place for a retreat and to explore the surroundings.
*-*-*-*-*-*-* CONTENT *-*-*-*-*-*-*
Over the week that we have together, we’ll give ourselves plenty of time to calibrate, while we dive deeper into our practice. Expect to be challenged at your own pace while we dive deep into the more creative part of acro, also visiting more advanced washing machines, pops & inversions.
Every day will offer yoga classes, handstand training, conditioning, acrobatic training & massage / meditation. Although most classes will be optional, so you can make this retreat your own, we encourage our students to partake in most of the classes to get all you can out of the experience.
Along with all the classes and accommodation, meals are included a well deserved recovery sauna session. Also included will be an adventure to the mountains, seeking some of the many breath-taking view points around the lake. We have organized some dinners at local restaurants, and also event nights with concerts in the nearby town for those who might enjoy a night out.
This trip is a dream of Maxime and Sariah. We are coming together to offer all we would want in a training-vacation. Connect deep with new friends, reconfirm bonds with partners and travel buddies, daily handstand training, advanced acrobatics, dancing, eating, lounging swimming and getting all we can out of the time we have together in the magical place. Create a beautiful flow and practice you can take with you back home and of course stunning photos of this amazing adventure.
