I'm so excited to be offering my second retreat to Peru. I hope you'll join me and fall in love with the sites and the people of Peru, just like me. It's one of my favorite cities in the world.
Saturday - Arrive in Cusco and transfer to our hotel. Settle in, meet your fellow yogis, and unwind. Restorative yoga practice to help us acclimate to the altitude and recover from the overnight flight. You'll also receive an optional COVID test (needed to avoid quarantine). Lunch & dinner included.
Sunday - With clear COVID tests, we are free to travel. After breakfast it is time to start to see the sites. Today we will travel to the historical archeological site of Pisac. We will hold a special ceremony on the hillside. After being grounded in our spirituality we're off to the Sunday Pisac markets. The most spectacular market in Peru!!! Lunch included.
Monday - After full day of site seeing & shopping, we need some time off as we continue to acclimate to the altitude! Morning yoga practice following by breakfast. Day is free to explore the city of Cusco. Late afternoon Cacao ceremony.
Tuesday - After breakfast, we're off once again. Today we will travel to the historical Incan site of Moray as well as the amazing site mines of Maras. The salt mines are set along the side of a mountain and can't be explained until you are there. Clearing, spiritual and special. Evening yin yoga.
Wednesday - Morning breakfast followed by an excursion to Ollantaytambo. While not as well known as Machu Pichu, this ancient city is quite spectacular all on it's own and well worth a visit (speaking from experience!). It's known for the Ollantaytambo ruins, a massive Inca fortress with large stone terraces on a hillside. Lunch included.
Thursday - Early morning departure for those who wish to travel to Machu Pichu. This day is optional and yes, it's a long day, but it's also a day not to be missed. We will take the train from Cusco to Machu Pichu. Afternoon exploration of the site followed by an evening train ride back to Cusco.
Friday - Our last full day in Cusco, and after all of our adventures, we need some time to relax. Morning yoga followed by breakfast and COVID testing for US entry. Enjoy the city, get a message, or do your last bit of shopping. Final group dinner this evening.
Saturday - Morning transfer to airport. Breakfast at hotel dependent upon departure times. Late afternoon/evening arrival in US.
Please note, itinerary may be subject to change if needed.
