Conscious Living through Yoga and Permaculture
The Yoga Forest is located in San Marcos La Laguna, in the western highlands of Guatemala.
Enjoy the peace and tranquility of mountains looking out over Lake Atitlán towards volcanoes San Pedro, Toliman and Atitlán.
ReTreat yourself in our tropical forest and enjoy amazing views, comfortable beds, delicious vegetarian meals, yoga and Permaculture classes and friendly community living.
The Yoga Forest incorporates a balance of teaching, discussion and practice of traditional yoga styles.
As yoga is fundamentally an experiential, inner inquiry, students are encouraged both to be aware of checkpoints, and to explore how the posture feels and manifests in their body during any given yoga experience. It is this student-centered journey which is at the heart of the Gnostic (experiential) yoga tradition, and which should not be overshadowed by technical instructions.
Permaculture, or Permanent Agriculture, means the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems that have the diversity, stability and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of landscape and people, providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way.
