Summary

Join Devon, ERYT-500, Ayurveda Health Counselor and founder of Day Yoga Studios for a week-long yoga and
Ayurveda wellness retreat in the Sacred Valley of Peru. To the Inca, the world and nature were sacred, and the Sacred Valley is well known for its powerful spiritual energy. “Pachamama,” or mother earth, cared for them and in return, they cared for her. We will tap into this sacred earth energy that supports and nourishes us all, while yoga retreat perualso exploring yoga and ayurvedic techniques to help support our own individual self-care based on Ayurveda and the doshas. At least 1-2 daily yoga practices will be offered. Morning practices will typically be more energizing vinyasa classes (but also accessible for all levels) and will help you get ready for each day. In the evening we will conclude with gentle, restorative, yin, meditation, or group sangha to help you have a restful evening on your retreat.

You can make your time in the Sacred Valley as relaxing or as adventurous as you like. When you’re not practicing yoga or eating nourishing local cuisine, you can enjoy hiking to the nearby waterfalls, participate in a karma yoga service project and explore local markets and villages. There is also an optional add-on hike to Machu Picchu available at the end of the retreat! You are sure to leave the retreat with a sense of balance, vitality, and overall well-being!
