Program

Sample daily schedule:

Your days begin with yoga practice, pranayama (breathing practices), and meditation as a blissful way of starting your day. Followed by a yummy nutritious breakfast buffet, herbal tea, and freshly brewed coffee. After breakfast, it is your time to study: three hours of Spanish classes. Hola!

After your Spanish sessions, you will have lunch which is served at the outdoor cafe overlooking Lake Atitlan and gardens. Afternoons are free - it’s time for you to rest, get a massage, do your homework, walk around the village, or simply relax in one of the hammocks. The day ends with a delicious dinner with candles and stars.

Retreat location

Doron Yoga & Zen Center is an eco-conscious yoga resort located in the breathtaking surroundings of Lake Atitlán. The welcoming home is situated in Tzununá (translates to Land of the Hummingbird) which rests amongst the many exceptionally unique villages surrounding the lake. Tzununá is the perfect spot for reconnecting with yourself as it is one of the quietest villages around, populated mainly by Mayan locals.

Amongst the various reasons that make the location special is the Tzununá River that runs through the garden with many meditation spots by it. The main yoga shala sits along the Tzununá River, allowing for the sound of water to flow softly and soothingly into your daily practices. Additionally, when keen on visiting the neighboring villages, you may relax knowing that you are only one short boat or tuk-tuk ride away! The closest village to Tzununá is San Marcos La Laguna, which is very popular amongst tourists.

Food

During this retreat, three vegetarian/vegan meals will be served each day. They source many of the ingredients from their very own organic gardens and locally source what the permaculture cannot supply. The food they serve is prepared with love, passion, and attention to detail. The menu is created under the guidance of the founder and director, who is also a trained chef and certified nutrition consultant, it is designed to give optimal plant-based nutrition and high energy whilst inspiring a gastronomical journey aimed to nurture body, mind, and soul.

Each meal is substantial, varied, and nourishing to energize you through your retreat journey. The daily offerings have an international inspiration, mixing traditional Guatemalan fare with Doron’s Mediterranean touch. Meals are made from fresh produce and to the greatest extent possible, food is organic and locally sourced, sometimes from their own garden. Gluten-free and vegan diets can be accommodated upon request. Snacks are available throughout the day.

You will get a great balance of raw food, cooked food (with healthy oils), fermented foods, healthy sauces, homemade jams, and peanut butter, homemade granola, baked sourdough bread, freshly made tortillas, signature pizza from the clay oven, and so much more. You will also get to enjoy the detoxifying power of Kombucha provided to you in shots every morning prior to breakfast.
