Amazing

The past week me and the group I’m travelling with spent 6 days at doron yoga. I’ve had een amazing experience there. We did a lot of different types of yoga and even though yoga isn’t necessarely my thing, I really enjoyed it. Everyone was super nice and the food was really good! I would definitely recommend this place :)

Great stay at Doron!

Beautiful place and very friendly staff! The food was delicious. I learned a lot from the staff and enjoyed the yoga greatly. We did the temazcal ceremony which was an amazing experience and I felt like I was getting to experience Guatemalan culture instead of just doing yoga.

Beautiful Stay!!

I went with a group of 16 people as part of our gap semester program. It was beautiful, the grounds are stunning, the views, and I loved all the hidden places to go sit in a hammock to read, journal or listen to music. The food was surprisingly yummy, all of it was vegan or vegetarian. Doron and Kassia were very involved with us and you can tell they love what they do.

Great time!

Our group had an amazing time at the yoga center. while the yoga did take place early in the morning the lessons were amazing and super helpful. The temezcal ceremony was a group favorite as well as it was an extremely unique experience.

Cool Experience

The yoga retreat was an awesome experience. The food everyday was great and there were always many options for all dietary needs. The yoga itself was perfect for all levels and definitely challenged my way of thinking. Everyone was so friendly and kind; it was so easy to feel comfortable and relaxed. I would definitely recommend that anyone do this retreat.

Seriously, this place is paradise. Definitely visit!!

I work as an instructor for a Gap Year program with students who are 18-21 years old, and my group of 16 spent a week at the Doron Yoga & Zen Center. This place is absolutely incredible — the property is filled with beautiful gardens and hidden away hammocks for relaxing in, plus two gorgeous shalas overlooking Lago Atitlan for yoga classes. The rooms are all clean, cozy and comfortable, and the all-vegetarian food menu is super tasty, plus the bliss balls and cookies and homemade kombucha are to die for. Doron and Kasia are excellent yoga teachers as well! The classes are fun and varied, and they’re really flexible in accommodating beginners to more advanced students all in one class. If you have the opportunity, definitely participate in their Temezcal ceremony and the Zen

Totally Recommended

In January 2021 I did my 200h Yoga Teacher Training at the Center. It was an intense experience and I am still amazed what I learned in this short amount of time. I especially loved the morning practice with asanas as well as meditation and pranayamaa. Furthermore I learned a lot about yoga philosophy, asanas with a lot of different modifications & variations, sequencing and teaching methodology. With all this knowledge I practiced my own 60 minutes yoga class, gained confidence, and got all the encouragement and answers to my questions from the teaching team, Kasia & Doron, I needed. They were so supportive, giving me always challenges as well as a lot of kindness. The Center is located in a small village with flourishing gardens and a beautiful view of the lake. The spaces are

Transformative yoga lifestyle experience

I attended their YTT in January 2021. There was no hands-on assist , but what a chance to have it despite of covid! The place is even more beautiful than the pictures, very clean and many places to chill, read, study and practice during your stay. The morning practice is awesome, with enough time to cover pranayama, asana (with multiple variations and daily novelties) and meditation. Teaching methodology is another strongpoint of the program. Everyone leaves the training with the ability to lead a class and design their own 45 to 90 min sequences. Kasia and Doron give 100% during the classes an ensure we get most of the short time we spend there. After 3 weeks of intensive study, 3 healthy satisfying meals a day, and a lot of practice , you will definitely feel living the

Very welcoming and special place to enjoy nature and Yoga

I stayed at Doron Yoga as a personal stay in order to be surrounded by nature, to eat clean and yummy vegetarian food (and not to worry about it) and to have regular Yoga practise. My already high expectations were exceeded. The team is absolutely amazing: So helpful and so kind, It feels like a perfect family business, in which everything runs smoothly and in which details are well thought out. Not a secret but still worth mentioning: Amazing food and Yoga. Doron's Yoga style is very well balanced and you learn a lot. The food is light but super yummy. I really appreciated how inclusive Doron and Kasia were. It felt like family. Do not worry too much about COVID-19. The space is huge and you spend most of time in open spaces. Guatemala has in general very low infection
