Join a yoga retreat at Sacred Valley, the valley of the goddesses. Share the experience of the profound wisdom of shamanic tradition, natural beauty, and open heart experiences, all with the mighty Andes Mountains as your backdrop. Together, at the beautiful Source Retreat Center in the Sacred Valley, you will be honoring all elements of the divine feminine.
The maximum participants in the group is 12.
Anyone between the ages of 18 and 80 years are welcome as participants.
Children are allowed as non-participating guests.
The majority of the rooms are shared accommodations. Each guest will be assigned to their own incredibly comfy, shared double room which means you will most likely have a roommate. If you are traveling with a partner, please let the Robust Vitality know in advance so the room can be arranged.
The beds in each room are luxuriously outfitted with two pillows, high thread count sheets, a thick duvet, and extra warm alpaca wool blankets. It does get chilly at night so please feel free to request for additional blankets. Though you are allocated space in one of the guest rooms, you are always welcome to stay and sleep in the ceremonial space when each ceremony ends. A laundry service and a complimentary Wi-Fi access are available.
The main lodge accommodations share two large, beautifully appointed bathrooms equipped with flush toilets, sinks, and 24-hour hot water showers. The men’s bathroom is downstairs and the women’s is upstairs. It also has an extensive library and games area with a broad range of books, tarot cards, board games, and card games for use while on site.
Please feel free to borrow any books or games that call out to you while you are staying, but kindly return them at the end of your visit for others to enjoy.

Truly, no trip to Peru is complete without a visit to Machu Picchu.
