Join Yoga Instructor, Meggan Riley, on a journey to the Sacred Valley for a yoga and meditation retreat at a peaceful, healing retreat center in the Andes Mountains of Peru! This retreat is offered during an incredibly sacred time on the Incan calendar year, as June 21, 2018 marks the Winter Solstice & Incan New Year! For locals, it is a time of celebration, renewal, sun worship, earth honor, and connection to ancestral wisdom! Winter Solstice marks the longest day of darkness in a year, thereafter a shift towards increased solar energy.
Each day we will gather for a mixed level practice, including dharma talk, asana, pranayama, dhyana, mantra, and svasana. Additional sessions for meditation and ceremony will be offered. Students will be asked to create intention in practice, in prayer, in essence, in dharma, and on their life path.

The retreat center’s name translates as “love from the ancient forest.” It is nestled in an oasis of native plants and fruit trees, nourished by a magnificent waterfall in the Sacred Valley of Peru. This lovely spot is in the Andes Mountains and home of the twelve mountains known as Apus—“luminous beings.” Those who come to the center have the opportunity to commune directly with these mountains, as well as with the local curanderos and pacos (healers), who engage with us for ritual and Despacho ceremony.
The guests at this center enjoy delicious meals with locally-grown and lovingly-prepared ingredients. Each guest room is a reflection of the Peruvian culture of the Sacred Valley. The entire center embodies kindness, love, and wholeness that seem to permeate the magical place.
