Tzununa – Lake Atitlan – Guatemala
Our lush and peaceful hundred sixty square meter centre is located in the quiet Mayan village of Tzununa. Only minutes from the lake, the DZYC awaits your yoga practice and dancing feet. Our newly completed Zendo Yoga Shala practice space sits elevated alongside the Tzununa River, providing us with inspiring sounds and views of the magnificent Tzununa valley, Lake Atitlan and both the Fuego and Atitlan Volcanoes.
The Doron Yoga Method is Ashtanga Vinyasa based with a touch of Zen. The classes are geared to all levels, from beginners to ninjas. Beginners will always have an option to work on the basics to build strength and flexibility, while the advanced student will receive options to work on fancy poses.
Come experience some of the best yoga with us on the beautiful Lake Atitlan in Guatemala.
Our days begin with pranayama (meditation and breathing exercises) and yoga.
During this retreat, morning sessions include Ashtanga primary through third series practice, as well as meditation and pranayama (breathing). Afternoon sessions include a number of workshops from Dr. Asana (examining correct alignment, how to go deeper in select poses, jump backs and through, inversions, arm balances, hips, core, and more), yoga and Zen philosophy, Osho ecstatic dance meditation, a fun 80’s Jane Fonda inspired calisthenics workshop and more!
Receive amazing hands-on assists from a loving, compassionate, enthusiastic, and energetic teacher with more than 25 years of yoga practice and studies around the world.
We structure our days flexibly so that you will also have ample free time to enjoy the gardens, the river or explore the nearby Mayan villages and activities around Lake Atitlan. Enjoy the beautiful surrounding nature by swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding in the lake, or hiking up one of the surrounding mountains or volcanoes, maybe even up to a waterfall. Indulge yourself in a sound vibration session or massage (at an additional fee).
Relax surrounded by the soothing sound of the babbling river that flows through the Doron Yoga & Zen Center (DYZC)’s grounds and views of Lake Atitlan, its volcanoes, mountains, gardens, coffee, avocado, and banana trees.
Some yoga experience required.
The retreat starts with dinner on the first night and ends after breakfast on the last day.
