Location

In-person training

Doron Yoga & Zen Center is an eco-conscious yoga resort located in the breathtaking surroundings of Lake Atitlán. The welcoming home is situated in Tzununá (translates to Land of the Hummingbird) which rests amongst the many exceptionally unique villages surrounding the lake. Tzununá is the perfect spot for reconnecting with yourself as it is one of the most quiet villages around, populated mainly by Mayan locals. Amongst the various reasons that make the location special is the Tzununá River that runs through the garden with many meditations spots by it.

The yoga shala sits along the Tzununá River, allowing for the sound of water to flow softly and soothingly into our daily practices. Furthermore, you will find at walking distance inspiring projects nearby such as permacultural foundations, academies, herbal apothecaries and farms such as Atitlán Organics to explore. In this relaxing village in the jungle rests a beautiful waterfall with the accompaniment of a small cave that makes meditation and chanting sessions wonderfully inviting.

Additionally, when keen on visiting the neighbor villages, you may relax knowing that you are only one short boat or Tuk-Tuk ride away! The closest villages to Tzununá are; San Marcos La Laguna, an exciting venue for holistic treatments and various spiritual events, and Jaibalito, the mysterious town with gorgeous hikes that is solely accessible by boat.

By staying with us, you contribute to the local community and the environment, as we hire locals to improve the overall village sustainability and reduce environmental impact. "For it is in giving what we receive."

Food

Three nourishing vegetarian meals served daily. Our menu is a mix of Guatemalan and whole-foods, influenced by the Mediterranean diet, made from fresh local organic produce. Each meal is substantial, varied, and nourishing to energize you through your practices without leaving you feeling too heavy.

We offer a healthy balance of raw, cooked, and fermented foods, homemade sauces, condiments, and jams, fresh baked sourdough bread, tortillas, and pizza from the clay and wood-burning pizza oven.

Snacks are homemade from whole foods with very little sweetener. Try Doron Yoga's chocolate chip banana muffins, vegan power superfood-rich bliss balls (made with local Mayan raw cacao), vegan black bean brownies, or enjoy one of our refreshing drinks: kombucha or probiotic ginger.

Note: be mindful of food and water hygiene, as travelers’ sickness is not uncommon in Guatemala, which can be quite challenging when embarking on a yoga program. Bring some grapefruit seed extract and daily maintenance of seven to eight drops in water or juice, or any other supplement that suits you.

Please bring protein bars or other supplementation if you’re used to high-protein diets or meat diets.

Things to do (optional)

The DYZC is located in Tzununa, which is surrounded by hills on Lake Atitlan with great views of the volcanoes on the other side of the lake. Hiking, swimming, and kayaking opportunities can be found around the village, which also has a dock where local lanchas (boat taxis) stop every 20 to 40 minutes to take you to explore other towns around the lake. San Marcos, the closest town over, can also be reached by foot along a dirt road. There, trainees can relax in one of the many cafes and restaurants or partake in an array of healing offerings, including shamanism, cacao ceremonies, Reiki, massage, and much more.

Among others, San Pedro, a short ride to the other side of the lake, has more of a vibrant backpacker’s vibe and is a little less expensive. At either end of your training, the nearby cities of Antigua and Quetzaltenango (commonly known as Xela) are only a few hours away and worth the visit. If you are interested in a massage, the Doron Yoga and Zen Center can arrange for a masseuse to come to the DYZC. Tibetan singing bowl chakra and physical balancing treatments and massages are available at the DYZC. All treatment costs will be at the student's expense.
