This yoga retreat & adventure in Peru will be full of magic and awe, lush clean air and nature, a sharpening of one’s trust and intuition, an awakening of one’s adventurous spirit, sacred land and unique heart-opening-mind-expanding experiences, a journey of our ancestors, a richness of culture and connection, an experience full of color and texture, a tonifying of both our physical and subtle body from all the land, yoga, hiking, nourishment, joy and community. The journey will be filled with sacred temples, mystical historic sites, inspiring stories, passion, nature, exceptional people, local food, market place art, and more.
We will re-ignite our curiosity for life, commitment to self-love and to daily sitting/meditation. We will learn and respect the ways of the locals, and step out of our own limited box, which can be so positively life changing! There will be a lot of hiking, learning about history of the sacred lands, connecting to our breath as our ‘hook’ into presence.
Each day we will focus on a new intention that can be brought into our day/journey/adventure. They will be accessible themes that will help us connect to the land, connect to our interior, connect to others, and feel more whole. This trip will help to dissolve the illusion of difference or separateness and will light up our connection to the whole and to Oneness. Intuition, Gratitude, Magic, Nurture, Adventure, Oneness, Trust, Center, Balance, Creativity, Awareness, Earth, etc…
While on our journey our Peruvian Chefs will provide us with the majority of our delicious meals. There will be several options such as vegetarian, gluten free, etc and we can accommodate most dietary concerns.
This week-long retreat will be a perfect way to see the cultural and historical highlights of Peru’s Sacred Valley in a balanced way. We’ll hike, flow and dine our way through, beginning in the heart of Cusco to settle into the altitude and get a taste for the journey to come. We then explore the cascading terraces of the ruins in Pisaq and witness life deeply connected to Pachamama Mother Earth. With this seed of inspiration, we head to the towering mountaintops to immerse ourselves in the awe-inspiring setting of Macchu Piccu. Returning to our artist-run accommodations in the center of the Valley, we enjoy Peruvian cuisine, yoga and a special lunch on the farm, local shopping and more. Each experience we embrace along the way builds a story of deep connectedness and respect for nature. Our final home in Peru will be at a vibrant retreat center with chakra gardens, warm hospitality and a full spa menu.
