AcroYoga Retreats: Dreams on Lake Atitlán – Guatemala

AcroYoga Atitlán - Eagle's Retreats - Lake Atitlán - Guatemala

Playing with movement, grace & humanity…

A natural match for AcroYoga and Eagle’s Retreats to be embracing one another:  As the later came into being as an inspiration from the former and thereby infused its genesis with many essentials from the spirit of AcroYoga.

Fitting for AcroYoga – bases feel like they are flying from the Eagle’s Nest, whilst flyers soar next to the passing eagles in the sky.  What does that feel like you might say?  Well, it is like taking the runner from a gym treadmill and placing them on a trail next to a cliff edge.  It changes a lot for the runner as to how (s)he experiences the world.  The world suddenly plays out and starts talking to the soul.  AcroYoga already is about connecting, which it does on many levels not least heart, mind, body and spirit.  Upside down, backside up, downside left and

AcroYoga already is about connecting, which it does on many levels not least heart, mind, body and spirit.  Upside down, back-side up, down-side left and right-side high.  Balance, transition, hold, trust, laugh and push – it’s all good fun.  Appreciation for your partner deepens, communication evolves, focus sharpens with successful flights, pops, and asanas.  Remeber to look up and out at the horizon – all this packaged into a rêvery.  Am I dreaming – or is this a dream come true?

Eagle’s Retreats is indeed the stuff of dreams two years ago.  Now reality and open for hosting AcroYoga retreats, workshops, classes and events with teachers from the worldwide schools AcroYoga.Org, AcroYoga Montreal, and Partner Acrobatics to name but a few.

Make your destination Central America!  Host or attend a Teacher Training, AcroYoga immersions, playful Retreats, fusions with dance or movement arts, circus, contact improvision, ecstatic dance – why not…Eagle’s Retreats awaits for you to fly on Lake Atitlán.

It’s about creating, finding and feeding a community, cosmic family, and the spirit of meaningful connections.

Eagle’s Retreats is an experimental playground for co-creating augmented experiences.  The recent gathering held here last March was one of the outcomes of such live experiment.  What was it exactly?

A small cover charge is necessary to fund the multiple aspects in which the experience drives to add value to its participants.  Delicious foods, sumptuous music and tribal sounds, resident and travelling DJs (Mose Cagen, Black Lovs , Matti IV, Michael Verner) tantalizing colors and lighting moods, body healing fairies, heart filling performing artists (fire spinners, giant bubble conjurors, jugglers, aerial acrobats, poets, mystics), a cacao ceremony ritual, bonfire area, cuddle puddle cozy lounge, visionary art, and artists, inspirational video projections, candles and low lighting, hours of ecstatic dance, heart open beings to connect with, new encounters, reconnections, mystical experiences.

By removing the availability of alcoholic drinks, the quality of the experience seems to bear a clearer and elevated quality.  The basic framework of the gathering is Connection of the participants through an opening circle.  Partaking in a cacao ceremony where 30-45g of raw ceremonial Performing Artist, Eagle's Retreats, Lake Atitlán, Guatemalacacao is drunk by participants (a heart opening enabler for connecting with our truer selves).  The ceremony opens the dance floor to fusion tribal electronic sounds.  Poetry for the soul and the body.  An invitation to feel deeply and respond to the body’s desires of the moment.  Activating neurochemicals of well-being, connectedness, ecstatic states, healing, release, joy.

Cosmic Family.  One of the outcomes.  Feelings of love and connectedness to other attending souls and the world as a whole.  The nature of the space coerces that; unlimited possibilities to explore the world, it’s beauty as presented to us (from the open front panoramic and engulfing view experience).
