REDISCOVER INNER PEACE AND GLOW
7 Day Yoga Retreat
Yoga Forest, San Marcos, Guatemala
16 April 2022 - 22 April 2022
Awaken your true power, reclaim your inner balance, come closer to your centre of joy and allow space for love to flourish. These 7 days have been designed for you to let go of all distractions and focus on what matters the most. That
YOU are HERE, NOW.
Together with The Yoga Forest we wish to create more than just another yoga retreat, instead our goal is to offer a holistic experience that will inspire and rejuvenate you as well as bring you closer to yourself, to others and to nature.
Through creative yoga sessions, guided meditations, heartwarming ceremonies, playful acro-yoga workshops as well as a co-creative massage, we hope to help you unlock whatever might be holding you back from manifesting your every desire.
San Marcos La Laguna is considered by some to be a Spiritual Heaven ideal for coming closer to oneself and nature. It sits at an elevation of 1,585 metres surrounded by 3 volcanos offering incredible views, hikes and outdoor activities all accompanied by peaceful sounds of nature.
The Yoga Forest is a sacred sanctuary with ancient Mayan altars and natural springs that have been protected as a natural reserve in order to honor the land and the heritage of its people.
Connect to Mother Earth and create space for transformation and self healing through daily guided meditations and playful flows by Mirka, fun acro-yoga workshops by Eleni and challenging handstands by Virginia as well as cacao, sound healing and Kirtan singing ceremonies.
Our intention is to create an experience that feels raw, authentic, honest and which leaves you feeling inspired, full of love and joy. To achieve that we have composed a schedule full of activities that touch on each aspect of what makes us human. At the same time it's created to be adjusted in accordance with what feels more natural each day of the retreat.

Previous Retreat Love
Read what attendees of our previous retreats say about us.
The Anasa retreat in July 2021 was my first yoga retreat ever so I knew little of what to expect. Mirka and Efsevios did an amazing job and completely blew me away with the location, the balanced but exciting daily schedules, their deep engagement in the group and their radiating love and passion.
The retreat with Anasa was a truly special experience. Everything was arranged with such careful thought - you could really feel all of the love that was put into it. Everything was top notch - from the beautiful accommodation, to the diverse program, to the amazing food. I felt I could really relax because I didn't have to worry about anything which is really special - as an adult you don't get this luxury very often! Seb & Mirka are also such gorgeous, warm, welcoming people - they are really what sets this retreat apart from others. If you're thinking about joining an Anasa retreat, don't hesitate - do it!
The Anasa yoga retreat at Pelion Homes was the first retreat I've attended and I'm sure it will be very hard to beat! Mirka and Efsevios did an awesome job making us feel like home within the beautiful nature and creating a wonderful experience from this week together! The yoga sessions were powerful and energising, leaving enough room to grow and discover yourself. Also the afternoon activities like going to a beach, hiking or climbing up waterfalls were amazing and something really special to enjoy with our group. The food was incredibly good and made with so much love! I cannot thank you enough for this wonderful week and I would highly recommend anyone to have this experience aswell!
