Join Yogascapes for the next adventure-filled retreat in Peru this September 14-20th, 2019. This adventure in Peru is full of magic and awe, lush clean air and nature, a sharpening of your trust and intuition, an awakening of your adventurous spirit, and unique heart-opening and mind-expanding experiences. You’ll experience a richness of culture and connection, a tonifying of both physical and subtle body from the land, yoga, hiking, nourishment, joy and community. The journey will be filled with sacred temples, mystical historical sites, inspiring stories, passion, nature, exceptional people, local food, market place art, and more. You will re-ignite our curiosity for life, commitment to self-love and to daily movement and ritual. You will learn and respect the ways of the locals, and step out of your typical box, which can be so life-changing! The Sacred Valley is part of many people’s spiritual journey. It is a place that embraces and challenges you. It is a place that calls you into your purpose by putting you in touch with an ancient civilization that was so in touch with theirs and whose descendants still embrace their wisdom. This trip was created to give you the most authentic version of this sacred place as possible, while offering a safe and beautiful movement and spiritual practice to support and enrich the journey.
A DAY ON RETREAT
Your retreat will be filled with daily yoga & movement custom to your specific group and adapted for whatever is happening during your journey. Our teachers are experienced enough to hold space for groups of all levels and are always looking for what each individual needs.
Food is always a highlight on our retreats, however Peru is one of our favorite places to eat in the world. We’ll have healthy retreat food every day, with opportunities to try other local cuisine and a special trip to one of THE best restaurants in the world, MIL CENTRO.
People come to Peru for healing, for cultural experiences, for tapping into the spiritual. It’s a once in a lifetime kind of journey so we’ve planned the most amazing excursions for you, while keeping in mind time to rest and integrate everything that you experience. Machu Picchu, Moray agricultural ruins and Maras salt mines, cacao ceremony, and more!
Staying at Willka T’ika means access to amazing bodyworkers and healing sessions including bathing in the solar baths and more. The space is designed around a 7-Chakra garden, so even just a quiet walk around the gardens feels soothing to the soul.
