About This Event
Join Kelsey Reed Armbruster, founder of Innercise Yoga, for a week of adventure and relaxation in the Sacred Valley of Peru! This Andes Mountain retreat will include yoga (2x) daily, local vegetarian cuisine, and cultural insight to the local community.
There will be opportunities to hike to a nearby waterfall, get inspired in service with the community, and explore local markets and villages. You ground in our fresh and focused energy, an optional trip to the famous Macchu Picchu will seal the week off.
If you are seeking healing, transformation, and a taste of culture—this retreat is for you!
You will be booking your flights for the Cusco Airport (CUZ). Most flights will arrive via a connection in Lima. Before booking tickets, please be sure you have received your official confirmation note that the retreat has met its minimums. There will be one group airport shuttle each way based on our flight window guidelines. Be sure your flights align with the provided flight windows if you wish to use the group shuttle.
- Every retreat is unique and, as such, the itineraries are ever-changing! We finalize the itineraries about 3-6 weeks before the retreat, but after 10 years of hosting retreats, we do have a general idea of what most schedules look like.
- Most retreats include one-to-two daily yoga classes. One class takes place in the morning, either just before or just after breakfast. After the first class and meal, you have free time to explore, relax, or take part in optional add-on activities. Lunch (if included in your retreat) will take place midday, during this free time. There is then, usually, an afternoon class followed by dinner. Occasionally some teachers choose to offer an evening restorative class or group gathering after dinner as well.
- In addition, there is usually one dedicated “excursion day” in which we do not have scheduled yoga classes. This is a day for people to take advantage of some of the more involved tour and excursion offerings and is always a lot of fun!

AccommodationsThe retreat center’s name translates as “love from the ancient forest.” It is nestled in an oasis of native plants and trees that are 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.
