2017 is the eighth year we offer a yoga retreat to the mystical land of the Sacred Valley in the Andean highlands. Be ready to open your path to an unforgettable adventure and enter the fascinating world of Peru on a trip of a lifetime.
The first five nights are spent at an idyllic Andean lodge set in the outskirts of Urubamba town in the Sacred Valley. Then one night is in Machu Picchu followed by two nights in Cusco. All rooms have private bathrooms. The staple food in Peru is quinoa, potato, meat and vegetables. Vegetarian and vegan meals are available. If you have any specific dietary restriction please let us know to ensure that it can be accommodated during the retreat.
A 1.5-2-hour yoga session will be held daily during our time at the lodge in the Sacred Valley. The style of yoga practiced is Vinyasa Flow in combination with restorative yoga. There is a powerful energy that is felt in this area of the Sacred Valley which is an ideal and conducive setting to reflect openly and to explore on a deeper level one's yoga practice. The fresh Andes mountain air energizes the mind and body and the inspiring views give a feel of a freedom from time. Here you will experience a transformative connection to nature and Self.

Peru has become a popular travel destination and we advise booking early for international and domestic flights. From your home airport book your flight to Lima, the capital of Peru (airport code LIM).
From Lima book a 1-hour flight to Cusco (CUZ). Vajra Sol’s retreat begins and ends in Cusco. Please plan on the day prior to the retreat start date and the day after as travel days between your home and Peru when coordinating your trip.

June through October is the dry season in the Peruvian highlands. It is typically sunny with blue skies and temperatures are in the low-mid 70sF during the day to high 30sF in the evenings. It is best to prepare for all weather conditions including rain, cold mountain conditions and warm days.
The retreat is limited to 16 persons to maintain general comfort for traveling together and to allow us to focus on personalized attention. A minimum of six persons is necessary to run the retreat.
We encourage booking early for this retreat! The retreat has sold out months in advance. It is also important to reserve the train tickets to Machu Picchu early on; space is very limited.
I am interested in this retreat. Please send me all the details!
