Disconnect To Reconnect Yoga Retreat

Join us for a week-long disconnect to reconnect journey to the Yoga Forest of Guatemala on the famous volcanic Lake Atitlan. Zen Den Yoga School Facilitator, Ira Schneider and Valerie Leeds, Invigorate U Certified Bodywork & Energy Therapist and Health Coach will be hosting.

When we take the time to disconnect from all of life's troubles, we realize that all the troubles were never really there to begin with. We can walk away from energy that does not serve us and become lighter than ever before. No matter the situation in front of us, we must remember it is just a situation, a test, and bit of our karma that the universe believes we are ready to rid ourselves of. The light is always shining, for everything had light and dark. Which do you prefer to see. With that in mind, come with us and see the light on this retreat of disconnect to reconnect.

About the Facilitators;

Ira Schneider founded Zen Den Yoga Studio in 2008 and Zen Den Yoga School in 2009.

Ira started to practice yoga consciously in 2007. He says consciously because, after getting his 200 hour certification he realized there were many parts to yoga besides the physical practice. These other paths of yoga (prana yama, meditation, positive thought) he had already been practicing from the time he was a little boy. This inward feeling of something larger then himself was always present through his years as an entrepreneur, teacher, consultant and individual being.

In 2007 his life took some major shifts and someone recommended trying yoga. He immediately accepted this idea as if he knew this was something he had to do. After his very first class Ira knew that this new practice in his life was not only going to be with him forever, but that it always had been with him and it was just time to start practicing again in this life time. Within three months Ira set out to become 200 hour certified in order to teach Yoga.

Upon completion of his 200 hr certification with School Yoga Institute, Ira immediately started to teach both private and large group classes in Boca Raton, Florida. Hence, the creation of Zen Den Yoga Studio. With an education background in college and always being in a consulting or educating position, Ira soon realized more of his dharma. He was enjoying the classes with his students, however, Ira wanted to get yoga out to more people. After just 11 months from his first certification, he went and got his 500 hour certification with School Yoga Institute in order to prepare to teach people how to teach yoga. This training was followed up with an 800 hour training certification and the opening of Zen Den Yoga School and Studio in affiliation with School Yoga Institute.

In 2013, Ira opened the Zen Den Yoga Retreat to share a journey of disconnect to reconnect with everybody, students of the 200 hour program and those just looking for a tropical get away.  Ira makes sure that guests have everything they need to experience a pampered, yoga retreat including: onsite resort-style amenities, massages, a veggie farm and a Vitamix blender, bicycles to explore the local area and more. Ira invites all of our retreat guests to get the full experience by visiting the studio for unlimited yoga, qi gong, and meditation classes.

Ira and the School and Studio have continued to grow as the universe shows the way. He shares this light with all those he comes in contact with. He has been blessed with a daughter who is pure light who continues to teach her father, just how pure and loving the universe and our time here on this journey is.
