SOLshine a personal transformation retreat

Villa Sumaya February 11-18th

About SOLshine

Escape Winter for “the land of eternal Spring”. Join Tam, Matt, and Tay for a yoga retreat of connection and self love at the picturesque Villa Sumaya Resort on Lake Atitlán in Guatemala. Enjoy 7 nights and 8 days in a remote paradise, thought to be an energy vortex within Guatemala. The resort is nestled in the mountains with lake front views and nearby Mayan villages and volcanoes with striking pointed cones. This retreat is for any level of practitioner looking to deepen their connection to themselves and the natural world around them.

What's Included

Not included: Your flights: Fly into GUA – Guatemala City International, transit to/from airport or Antigua to Lake Atitlan, spa services, other activities, specialty drinks, internet, staff tips. All the above will be billed to individual accounts. Please prepare to budget $75 per person for transit to Lake Atitlan


In Sanskrit, Sumaya means a long-awaited dream come true, while in Arabic it translates as a little piece of paradise. Both of these definitions mirror our hearts’ intentions and inspire our service. Our logo is a Mayan glyph found in Chiapas, Mexico representing the fountain of life or the budding growth of a flower, and this too moves us ever forward. Many Mayan hands have contributed to the creation of this paradise and our ongoing connection with our indigenous neighbors has been mutually respectful, rich and gratifying. Everything you find here – every brick, every paving stone, every piece of window glass and decorative tile — has been lovingly transported to Sumaya by boat and then carried by hand and strong back to its respective location.

It is our sincere desire that your experience in this natural refuge will enhance your lives as much as it has ours.

This retreat is for all level practioners. Just like our class offerings at SOL, our offerings will provide modifications and uplevels for those who desire them. You can expect moments of ease and challenge in our yoga, meditation and breathwork classes.

This retreat experience is meant to serve your greatest good, so we encourage you to do what it is you feel called to do. That may look like exploring the near by towns, pool or lake time. However to create a cohesive group experience we recommend partcipants come to each breathwork offering. Part of the magic of this retreat is how we connect to others and our daily breathwork classes allow for just that
