I was guided towards profound insights that have shifted both my understanding of myself and my way of being on this planet. — Justin Caruso, Yoga Teacher ~ NYC

Dancing Freedom Facilitator Training: February 24-March 19, 2018 – Lake Atitlán, Guatemala


24 Day Immersive Embodied Leadership Facilitator Training and Soul Initiation Retreat 

Dancing Freedom is a conscious movement practice that supports full body expression, loving boundaries, nature connection, emotional coherency and spiritual awakening for individuals and whole communities.


Journey deep into the Mayan heartland to the mountains above Lake Atitlan, Guatemala and immerse yourself in 24 days of dance and embodied leadership training. We invite you to dive in, surround yourself  by the elements and remember what it feels like to know yourself as a force of nature.

Our training intensives are a deep dive into your personal transformation and evolution as an embodied leader. This facilitator training will take you to your edges and beyond, bringing you home to your Authentic Self.  You will dance every day, do yoga every morning, learn new skills for powerful embodied presence and awareness, cultivate amazing new friendships, and move forward in your own life as a leader on the global stage – all at the same time. If you are ready to step deeper into your leadership and join a dynamic, collaborative, spiritual community that is making a BIG difference in the world – while also giving your body the gift of an immersive, purposeful and fulfilling 24 day dance experience- this training is for YOU!



The Place

The Yoga Forest, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala


The Yoga Forest is located in San Marcos la Laguna, in the western highlands of Guatemala. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the mountains looking out over Lake Atitlán towards the volcanoes San Pedro, Toliman and Atitlán.

The Yoga Forest models conscious living in community as a spiritual practice, offering a unique retreat space for learning and personal growth.

At the Yoga Forest we will live, work & play harmoniously with nature, creating inclusive abundance and a safe space for personal transformation and authentic self expression. Through intercultural relationships of respect, the stewards of the Yoga Forest weave together local and global visions that inspire positive social and ecological impacts in the world.

The Yoga Forest was founded as a sustainable living experiment, through a desire to live simply, greenly and in communion with everything surrounding us. It aims to help grow and inspire people dedicated to viewing the environment and their relationship to it in a sustainable way.


As we step into this dance of deep ecology and recognize ourselves as part of the ecosystems and world that we breathe, we begin to fully recognize the impacts we make. The Dancing Freedom community is beyond excited to collaborate with this extraordinary permaculture community, in the magical space they have created for deep, transformational work. It is the perfect space to host the Dancing Freedom facilitator training; we will be surrounded by the elements and woven into the very fabric of the culture of the land that supports us.

Who should attend?

The Dancing Freedom Community is a fractal of the global wave of awakening. We dance for unity, peace, personal transformation, earth healing, social healing and oneness. We bring this through the medicine of the Dance and embodied leadership. We are specifically calling those of YOU who carry DANCE MEDICINE to join us on this epic adventure into the heart and soul of the Mayan homelands. In this ecstatic dance training you will up level your personal and collective capacity to shift consciousness, transform fear into trust, and bring joy, celebration and ceremony as a means of healing to our world.


What you will learn…  

This 24-Day Intensive Facilitator Training is a high-impact, super fun, deep dive into dance, movement meditation, space holding, nature, DJ training, embodied leadership tools and resources, personal business development, and community building. 

As you dive into the core curriculum of Dancing Freedom you’ll learn the fundamentals of the practice through your own embodied experience. You dive into the Dancing Freedom practice, the energetic and personal empowerment tools needed to facilitate and guide others, and the “big picture” of spiritual, emotional and physical transformation possible for you and your communities through dance and conscious movement practices. You get a comprehensive experience, a broad and powerful leadership toolbox, and a total understanding and working map for your own leadership. This training is for those of you who are ready to take this powerful step in your personal evolution. The Dancing Freedom Facilitator Training and Soul Initiation is a modern day Rite of Passage. 

“I came into this training knowing that I wanted to facilitate dance, but lacking a form that I trusted, and also not thinking of myself as qualified. I came out of this training with an experiential knowing of Dancing Freedom, feeling qualified to teach, and with a wealth of gifts I never could have anticipated. I’ve gone from waiting to live my passion, to living it. All-in-all, it was better than imagined.”

~Alicia G.

“For the first time in my life I feel that I have the possibility and the inner and outer tools, to start sharing what I truly treasure and believe in with my community: a dimension of embodied awakening where authenticity, growth, connection, love, compassion, full expression of body*mind*soul, joy and celebration, prayer, nourishment, co-creation, creativity, aliveness and freedom can happen. I feel more adult and more ready to take action and responsibility, I feel a readiness (which includes embracing my fears and my vulnerability) to step into the bigger me.”

    I have been searching for awhile now for kundalini/ecstatic dance facilitator training. This program is the one that is calling me!

    I want to put in an application, but before I do so, I have one practical question; if you don’t mind.
    1.) How much (roughly if not confirmed yet) does the program cost

    Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.

    In kindness,
