Experience a spiritual awakening in Peru!
Join Global Journeys Academy for a spiritual experience of a lifetime in Peru!
You’ll practice self-care rituals at a retreat centre in the Sacred Valley, surrounded by the most amazing mountain landscapes. After 5 days of yoga, meditation, and ancient Peruvian healing practices, you’ll travel to Aguas Calientes and trek to Machu Picchu for a magical meditation experience at sunrise. It will be an inspirational and rejuvenating journey!
Our journey begins in Cusco, the cradle of the Inca Empire and home to several indigenous populations. You’ll have the opportunity to explore all the city has to offer: Inca ruins, Spanish colonial architecture, and the famous San Pedro market. You’ll also have time to acclimatize to the altitude before we head to the Sacred Valley.
Our retreat centre, the Yoga Mandala, is located in the Sacred Valley: its mystical energy is sure to inspire, refresh, and revitalize you! For 5 days you’ll be immersed in rituals of self-care: yoga, meditation, indigenous medicinal practices, healing circles, and nature walks. All of our practices will be silent, though lunches will offer the opportunity to socialize with your fellow journeyers. All meals are vegetarian and prepared with ingredients from the centre’s garden and organic farms within the area.
Our journey takes us next to Aguas Calientes, or Machu Picchu Pueblo, the city at the bottom of the valley below Machu Picchu. Once we arrive in Aguas Calientes we’ll tour the town, have dinner, and head to bed early – because the next morning we’re off to Machu Picchu for the “first light”. The rays of morning light hitting the citadel is a truly magical experience that you’ll never forget! We’ll spend some quiet time here meditating and performing sun salutations, followed by a guided tour of Machu Picchu and free time to explore. In the late afternoon, returning to Aguas Calientes, you’ll have the opportunity to relax in the hot springs – a relaxing end to your rejuvenating retreat in Peru!
