    This was a spectacular experience. The location is in a beautiful and magical part of the country on Lake Atitlan, nestled in the mountains, surrounded by the garden full of herbs for the tea and plenty of vegetables for the fresh and delicious meals, topped off with a flowing river you walk along on your daily route from the dorms to the Yoga Shala.

    The amount of knowledge transferred during this training is exceptional. Doron maintains a well-balanced schedule every day and pours his heart and wisdom into it. He is genuinely passionate about sharing the tool of Yoga with the World, and it shows in all his teachings; whether it be the asanas, philosophy, or methodology. If your Mind and Heart are open to it, you will learn much more than just “yoga.” Thank you for tending to the garden of my own mind - cleaning the weeds, planting new seeds, and watering them. Namaste 🙏🏻

    "Sthira Sukham Asana"

    Gorgeous setting, delicious, healthy food and sweet staff.

    Learned so much about Yoga.

    It's exponentially more fascinating and rich with history than you'd have known from your average yoga studio or gym yoga class.

    "Best place to learn how to teach"

    Beautiful retreat space, the yoga Shala has truly wowing views of lake and volcanoes, healthy organic vegetarian and vegan meals, super good vibes; Doron is really really skilled teacher and you are guaranteed to laugh lots

    Loved the enthusiasm, passion and love that Doron puts into everything he does. I learned so much in 3 weeks and feel ready to teach.

    "Doron Yoga"

    Teacher: Egotistical and easily angered; lashes out. Comes from a good lineage of teachers. Knowledgeable but often unable to transmit knowledge in class. Favored particular students and ignored others (e.g. Asian students).

    Education: Strong in yoga asanas, alignment, and teaching assists. Weak in philosophy and history. Inflexible teaching style (Doron’s 19 building blocks based on Ashtanga must be adhered to) that will wear heavily on the wrists.

    Facilities: Generally poorly maintained and managed. The yoga shala is beautiful. In both private rooms and shared rooms, most students dealt with some combination of mice, scorpions, being locked out of rooms, spiders, and issues that arose were sometimes not addressed for several days. Showers are usually cold and occasionally there is no water at all.

    Amenities: There is no food available between meals and add-ons are a bit pricey (dessert is for a fee, taels are for a fee, muffins are $2.15USD). Laundry does not come back fully clean. In general, bookings via Doron Yoga have been unreliable.

    Food: Vegetarian, menu repeats each week (no selection). ~90% of the student group suffered from diarrhea for 1-2 weeks of their 3 week stay; a few contracted parasites.

    "Best yoga teacher training out there "

    Doron is the most inspirational teacher I’ve ever had! He is the most passionate man I’ve ever met who dearly loves Yoga and the lifestyle that comes along with it. Not only did I get an amazing instructor, but it is the best shala I’ve ever seen, the food was so healthy, the workers who help run the place are the most wonderful people and the location is so zen and beautiful. You will not regret coming here. You will gain all the tools necessary to being the best yoga teacher you can possibly be.

    "Wonderful location, more input/support expected at retreat"

    Yummy and fresh food (really enjoyed the family dinner style), lovely participants, great place to rest and immerse yourself with yoga and meditation. I especially enjoyed the Yin Yoga (by Kasia) and Yoga Nidra (by Julia). I received more insights and information about mediation and I will integrate it into my daily life.

    "Beautiful experience "

    Lake Atitlan and the quiet town of Tzununa are a wonderful backdrop to Doron Yoga. The yoga shala sits with beautiful views of the lake and Volcanoes in the background. Sunrise mediation is other worldly, the sun peaking out from behind erupting Volcan Fuego, wow, just wow. The facilities are comfortable and I loved my week stay. The food is so good and those that aren't into the vegetarian diet, well trust me you will forget that there is no meat. What made it a truly beautiful experience are the people. I was welcomed with a big smile and a warm hug from Doron. Everyone that works there felt like friends with your best interest at heart. The yoga and meditation was great, it might be a little difficult for beginners but the instructors gave modifications and it's up to you not to get discouraged and try the modifications. The group work with Tina touched my heart she is such a genuine person. I honestly know I will go back and take my sister.

    "Gorgeous Guatemalan Getaway!"

    Of the handful of yoga retreats I have done around the world, this was by far the most educational and inspirational. Doron is a true teacher, and is also understanding of the realities of day-to-day existence in the 21st century. I loved the classes, the food, and the wonderful people I was able to meet. Top notch experience!

    "Life Changing "

    I loved everything about this retreat. Doron yoga and Zen center truly attracts incredible people. I just did the New Years Rejuvenation Retreat and it was more empowering, enlightening, and FUN than I could have ever imagined. In a week my yoga practice has drastically improved. The food is incredible. The meditation and breathing exercises are everything. Doron is so warm yet he challenges you and spends time paying attention to detail in your poses during practice. I’m not a yogi or a vegan, I do practice twice a week, and this was incredible and definitely inspired me to deepen my practice. The food is exquisite, super fresh and healthy. The zen center is beautiful and peaceful and clean. It’s in a great location on lake Attilan and the view is spectacular. Lake Atitlan might be the most beautiful place in the world. Also I met some of the most amazing people. Oh, and it’s so easy to do really fun activities like paddle boarding, hiking, etc. the center takes care of everything.
