In Sanskrit, the word Sumaya means “long-awaited dream come true”. Nestled into a secluded lakefront cove on the stunning shores of Lake Atitlan, Villa Sumaya is a spiritual retreat center on 18 acres of sacred Mayan highlands. Villa Sumaya has been featured in Yoga Journal and Taschen’s "Great Yoga Retreats."


In a small group setting (minimum 3, maximum 8 participants), you will align with your heart’s deepest desires and allow your unique purpose for being on the planet to reveal itself.

The yoga, you will practice is slow flow - a mix of Hatha, mindful Vinyasa flow, and Yin. Sessions incorporate a mix of yoga asana, breathing practices, meditation and chanting/toning, writing/journaling and guided relaxation with a sound bath.

This retreat is open to all levels from novice to expert. Take home healthy habits and empowering practices that will enhance your personal well being and nurture your intuitive intelligence.

Walking the path of beauty, we are grateful to the miracle of life happening now. In each present moment, we have the choice to open, expand, heal and grow - to live from the heart.
