About This Center
Join us for 3 days in our retreat in beautiful rural setting on the shores of the Vilcanota River surrounded by the amazing Andean Mountains in the Valley of Cusco. These retreats are offered to those who like to be outside of the crowded cities. Our retreat center is more a vivencial "living" retreat where we share rooms and space with others, help to organize, clean and prepare the meals together.
Our Center and Facilities
Our retreat center is build in a nice adobe house with a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains and river. We also have a beautiful octagonal meditation center.
We have one large room for women and one for men. We recommend you bring your own sleeping bag and flashlight. Water supply is at a rural stage (no running water) and we use candles.
Yoga Practice (Vinyasa Flow) Gentle but effective practice of essential body postures, breathing exercises and meditation techniques designed to enhance overall health and cultivate spiritual awareness. We will share the experience of exploring the expansiveness of our mind, breath and bodies, bringing consciousness into all aspects of our life.
Meditations: Finding inner peace and creativity through the art of meditation. A time for quiet contemplation, relaxation and visualization.
Vegetarian Meals: You will enjoy delicious vegetarian food cooked with loving intention and offered with mantras to the Divine. Recipes draw on traditional, worldwide, lacto-vegetarian cuisine. Our food is 100% vegetarian and all our meals are lovingly prepared with vegetables, herbs and Andean grains.
What else you can do?
You can read a book from our yoga library or bring a holistic lecture
to listen to (but keep in mind we don't have outlets for charging
electronics!), trek to the inca ruins on top of the nearby mountain
(three hours walk), or bring a instrument to play.
Our "Eco Yoga Retreat " is strategically located in the Sacred Valley of Cusco on the shores of the Vilcanota River, one hour south of Cusco by Bus (just passed the village of Vicho)
if you are in Cusco, take a taxi to the bus station next to the Stadium "Garcilaso" and take the bus that goes to San Salvador. Get off the bus 3 min. after passing the village of Vicho and 10 minutes before San Salvador (around 45 min. from cusco). Ask to get off at the"Eco Yoga" stop. The bus costs 2.50 soles. (Do not come without confirmation of your arrival, it could be that we are not in the moment)
Advice: do not go to the farm after 4pm since it will be dark and it will be difficult to locate the farm.
ReviewsWrite a review - tell others about your experience.
We concluded our journey together with a final exam testing us on nearly fifty Sanskirt names of postures and a series of questions ensuring that we have emerged with a strong foundation of knowledge about the philosophy and tradition of yoga, the physical and technical asanas, modifications and adjustments and a personality of joy and excitement to teach yoga. I emerged with tears of joy, screaming to the world how happy I feel, how blissful, how blessed I feel. I leave full of gratitude. Gratitude to Peru for welcoming to their sacred land. Grateful to my teachers, who were also my fellow students, for taking me inside of myself, outside of my body and beyond my soul. To myself, for committing to something so powerful and holding onto everything I have learned as I listen to mantras on my bus ride out of Peru. Here I found a community – a community of people committed to self-reflection, body-soul-mind respect and appreciation.
