Yoga & Holistic Health

Come and nourish your soul at the exclusive Villa Sumaya located in Santa Cruz La Laguna in the heart of the Mayan highlands on the shores of Lake Atitlán believed by the Maya to be the center of the Universe where God’s seeds of mankind evolved.  

Dive deeply into the Integral Yoga Institute and Kalyana Ka healthy life style. Enjoy a daily yoga practice that includes an early morning meditation, and two Hatha Integral Yoga classes (morning and afternoon) overlooking the beauties of the lake. Listen to presentations by Swami Asokananda and Kālyana that will emphasize the ultimate goal of yoga - the quietude of the mind. Rejuvenate and end each day with guided deep relaxation called Yoga Nidra, a healing technique that brings about a deep sens of surrender and helps to let go of what no longer serves you. Learn how to create your daily routine with Kalyana - simple actions that will have a profound effect on your well being. Be in the presence of a Mayan shaman and experience a powerful healing ceremony. 

Savor delicious and nutritious foods, an eclectic blending of local and international vegetarian cuisines. Make the best of your free time - relax, read, write, swim, kayak, sunbathe, go for walks, linger at the spa, explore the neighboring villages etc. It’s your vacation, remember to do what makes you feel good.

Return home refreshed and inspired with the tools to keep this positive momentum in motion.
