7 Day Ceremonial Yoga & Silent Meditation Retreat

About This Event

Amaruanka invites you to go deep in your yoga practice while continuing to explore your own self love, and healing journey. Ceremonial yoga will help you connect with nature, your heart, and learn asanas that will prevent injury, and help you restore balance in all aspects of your life.
In this retreat, you will be guided through hatha yoga, ceremonial yoga, yoga with cacao, and yin-yoga styles. This will allow you to connect with your emotional needs, physical awareness of limits and how to respect the body, power animals and their teachings, 5 elements of nature, opening the heart with cacao, balancing masculine and feminine energy, affirmations, and setting clear intentions.

This is an asana practice with sound healing, meditation, light body-work, power animal exploration, and invoking the spirit of animals on the journey of self-love and transformation. The essence of ceremony and cleansing ritual opens and closes the practice, leaving you feeling renewed, connected, and empowered. A complimentary experience with yoga in this retreat, is a guided practice and meditation at Inca ruins up in the mountains.

Diana Deer Hawk is a passionate yoga teacher, on the path of self-love and living a sacred life. She is trained in hatha yoga, yin yoga, ceremonial yoga, yoga therapeutics, pre and post plant ceremony yoga, adjustments, bodywork and massage, qi-gong, cleansing rituals, and sound healing. She can help you refine your practice, and eventually you can practice on your own.
Matiyu Alku Chaska is a devoted healing facilitator, spiritual teacher, meditation guide, and ceremonial yoga practitioner. He helps you remember and integrate the sacredness of presence, and nature as medicine.


We offer private training, and training for small groups of 2 to 4 participants. We offer personal guidance, and choose to respect the quality of small group benefits. If you are in a sacred couple, and wish to do the retreat together, we can arrange a private retreat for the two of you. Looking forward to accompany you.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration sparks from my innate charge to connect with a collective innate goodness. I aspire to live in a way that continuously blossoms and embraces my wise and compassionate human nature. Freundl
