The Instructors


Katie Vincent, RYT

Yoga and meditation found Katie during an especially difficult period of her life and blessed her with so much more than mere flexibility and ease of mind; by cultivating awareness, breath, appreciation, self-love and community she found healing and resilience in ways she never thought possible.


Vanessa Berenstein, Integrative Nutritionist

Food Ambassador

Vanessa uses both evidence based and holistic health perspectives with her patients. She is also completing a Master of Arts in Food Systems and Food Culture at New York University. Vanessa has worked in obesity research, diabetes outpatient education, inpatient eating disorders treatment, and critical care nutrition.

Hotel Isla Verde

Isla Verde is set in one of the most quiet, safest, and well-preserved corners of Lake Atitlan, in Santa Cruz La Laguna. While lounging in our lakeside garden you will feel worlds away from the commotion of everyday life. There are no roads, no traffic, and no public dock near us, only lake breezes, birds singing, and occasional hikers passing by on the footpath. Our location affords you the classic lake vista of volcanoes looming over the water, plus direct access to one of the safest, most scenic walks around the lake. Isla Verde offers the perfect mix of seclusion and accessibility. Stay here in our sanctuary and enjoy the activities offered at Isla Verde, or use it as a great jumping-off place to explore the lake. There is frequent boat service to the other lake communities, and the hotel is easily-reached from the main transportation hub of Panajachel.
