Where Do You Stay

We have been looking and researching for many years now to find the best place to hold our first Peru yoga retreat. After visiting Samadhi Sacred Valley, we felt the incredible magic of this place and it was clear that this would be our stay for our Yuva Yoga Retreat. Our mission is to widen your horizon! 

The center is located in the Magical Sacred Valley of the Inca Empire and has specialized in hosting self-realization focused retreats for many years.

The 7 bungalows, each themed for one of the 7 chakra energy centers in the body, cascade down the hill side. The 7 suites are also each themed for masters of different traditions who lived in the Samadhi state. All rooms include beautiful views, hot water, and comfortable living spaces. 

In the main lodge, there is a large living room, dining room, and two yoga studios along with the inspiring majestic view from the sacred mountainside available for you to enjoy.

The center has its own organic gardens to support sustainability in the kitchen, and has a healing garden with native herbs. 

You will be able to use two places for art therapy: one on-site and one in the mountains. There are multi-functional spaces for classes, movies, and lectures.  

Discover the Sacred Valley

Peru’s Sacred Valley is an essential part of any visit to Cusco and home of the best Inca ruins. The incredible Sacred Valley of the Incas is located along the Urubamba River and offers so much to see. The Inca ruins of Pisac and Ollantaytambo are located at either end of the valley and in the middle, they offer recordings by ancient salt mines, Inca amphitheaters, local farms, and non-tourist markets, as well as unique cultural and culinary tours. The Sacred Valley is generally warm in the day, making it perfect for exploring. It’s the gateway to Machu Picchu and is full of Inca history, monuments, and mysteries. The beautiful natural settings, coupled with good food, make this an unmissable destination. The winter months of Peru begin in May and the nights can be cold, but during the day, the sun is strong. 

Get ready for daily Yoga & Human Movement Exploration

We will practice yoga in the incredible Samadhi yoga shala, overlooking the mountains. Since outdoor activities are part of this retreat program, there will be practices that will take place in the beautiful natural surroundings of the sacred valley.

All mats and other yoga equipment will be provided during your stay.

Who can join?

This retreat is suitable for complete beginners all the way to advanced students. The yoga practices will start soft and easy in order to ground yourself as you arrive in your new home for the upcoming 7 days. Every day, we will increase the intensity of our practice. All classes will be guided and they will build upon one another. 

If you are open to spirituality, growth, and exploring nature, you will love this authentic retreat experience.

Travel

The easiest way to fly to Cusco is via Lima, the capital of Peru, which is a 1.5 hour flight. You can reach Lima directly through international airports like Adolfo Suárez Madrid, Charles de Gaulle (Paris), Guarulhos International (São Paulo), JFK (New York) and many more. You can use this retreat to explore other places as well, especially Cusco, the Capital of the Inca Empire. Please let us know your plan so we can provide you with good places to visit in Peru. 

You will be picked up from a meeting point in Cusco on May 21st at 4:00 pm with a private transport to the retreat center. On May 27th, we will all leave the retreat center at 10:00 am with a private transfer back to Cusco city, which is a 1-1.5 h ride. 

If you are arriving later and can’t make it to the meeting time in Cusco, we can arrange a private pick up from the airport directly to the retreat center. The same goes for your departure if you need to depart earlier.

Currently, there are no vaccinations needed to travel to Peru. * However, it looks like starting on the 15th of December, people who travel to Perú need the vaccine. 

How To Cope With Altitude?

Cusco is at an altitude of 3,399 meters / 11,152 feet above sea level. Some people experience mild altitude sickness symptoms like fatigue, headaches, nausea, loss of appetite, and dizziness due to lack of oxygen. Typically, the symptoms are present between 12-24 hours after arriving at altitude. If you adapt satisfactorily to the city of Cusco, it is sure that you will have no problem visiting Machu Picchu. We will help you to prevent high altitude sickness before your trip to Cucso and provide you with tips on how to prepare for altitude sickness.
