This place has been designed especially for the practice of yoga and the development of this style of life.
Yoga states that in order to establish yourself in an experience of creativity, peace, harmony, and brightness, you must tune and refine all aspects of your personality, the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual. And only when you have tuned and harmonized all these areas of your life will you establish yourself in that experience of balance, stability, and flowness with life and its beauty.
In this retreat, you are going to acquire knowledge and valuable tools and advice, and you will be able to practice and experiment during eight consecutive days the yogic way of life, which will allow you to evaluate its impact on your life and achieve the necessary impetus to be able to incorporate it into your everyday life.
In this retreat, you are going to experience, understand, and learn to eat wisely, to move your body and exercise appropriately, to breathe more efficiently, to relax correctly and deeply, and to train your mind in positive and creative thinking and in meditation.

The retreat is directed to both new yoga practitioners as well as those who already have experience, to teachers, to all those people who want to and cannot yet incorporate yoga as a daily practice to perform in their homes and in their daily lives, to all those who have interest to lead a healthy lifestyle and directed toward growth, to those who want to know and experience the benefits that this system of life can give, and to all those who want to learn relaxation, meditation, and breathing techniques for better health, more energy, and a calmer mind, more focused and agile.

This retreat will take place at Sach'a Munay Yoga and Retreat Center in the Sacred Valley of Urubamba, Peru. The Sacred Valley in the Inka cosmogony is the reflection of the Milky Way, as was the Nile to the Egyptians. With its subtropical climate, it is an ideal place for learning and practicing yoga, surrounded by the elements of nature, earth, water, fire, air, and space that nourish you with its own presence.
The yogis have always chosen places removed from the city and close to nature to live and carry out their practices because these places are full of negative ions that allow you to absorb and assimilate the energy of the place and the one generated by the practices. Therefore, the benefits are even greater than doing it in the city where the negative ions are scarce.
The Andes, and its energetic and historical heart, Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu are a must see for the spiritual seeker, where the sacred becomes visible and tangible in their mountains and guardian spirits, the apus.
The Andes is a very special place on the planet, which is radiating its spiritual energy and transformation to all mankind. The Andes and the Himalayas are the highest mountains in the world, and both spaces are the cradle of ancient spiritual and powerful traditions.
The cordillera of the Andes is like a big spine that runs throughout the American continent, with various chakras or areas that are particularly intense, the Mount Shasta in northern California and Machu Picchu in the area of Cusco in Peru. Discovering the energy of the Andes and the Pachamama (Mother Earth) for the first time really has an impact.
The stones, the mountains, and the rivers seem to take animal forms and express the great spiritual and vital energy that is born there and inhabits these spaces. The ancient civilizations that flourished in this area of the planet seem as if they had turned on these energies even more, creating sacred spaces for temples, places of worship, and spirituality.
During this retreat, you will be provided delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. Meals are generally vegetarian and made from locally grown, fresh, and organic produce.
Please book your flight to arrive at Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (CUZ). Siddhi Yoga (Yoga con Fernando Calviño y Alexa Traugott) can coordinate and request a secure taxi to the location for 80 PEN per taxi.
