"Chakras and Chocolate"
with Ashleigh Beyer and Liz Passman
January 24th-31st, 2015
Join Ashleigh Beyer and Liz Passman for a exquisite week of rejuvenation and inspiration on the shores of Lake Atitlan.
On this seven day retreat, you will journey into openness and freedom through the power of physical yoga, breath-work, meditation and cacao. Using these practices, we will explore and open the seven chakras. Each day will begin with a morning flow class and each evening will culminate with a restorative class. Find balance between effort and ease, moving and then ultimately, letting go. After connecting to source and highest knowing: on the last day, we will participate in a Cacao Ceremony with a Chocolate Shaman. Allow sacred cacao (chocolate in its purest form) to assist your transformation and continued journey as you take your practice out of retreat setting and back to home setting. Optional group excursions to the gorgeous nearby volcanoes and into town for market can also be apart of your week as well any of the renewing therapies offered at the Harmony Spa. Of course, there will also be plenty of time to commune with yourself, your book and to just contemplate the sky, sitting by the lake, lounging in a shaded hammock, or relaxing in the hot tub.
