Have you ever dreamt of attending a relaxing retreat on the most beautiful lake in the world? Join us for a retreat on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala in February. Click here to explore the resort’s Instagram.

All will be taken care of while you wash away your worries and immerse yourself in the gorgeous natural surroundings and enjoy the many restorative modalities and activities available.

There are two yoga shalas overlooking the lake and three stunning volcanoes. Your accommodation includes three meals a day prepared by talented local chefs, unlimited locally sourced teas and coffee, bottled water in your room, and enjoyment of the gardens and wood-fired hot tub and sauna.

No speakers, no set schedule. This is a retreat for each of us individually and together!  Choose what you do each day or do nothing at all.

Join other women in the legal profession to retreat and enter the calm and natural beauty that is the small village of Santa Cruz on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.

When we can revitalize a connection to ourselves and each other, we have the power to manifest even greater things for us and those we love.

In our day-to-day lives, the ability to practice calm and stillness is often impossible.  We invite you to come with us for 5 nights and enjoy La Isla Verde (the eco-resort is reserved for our WBA group only).

Reserve as soon as possible as we have limited availability.
