Wake up to the golden reflection of the sunrise across the Andes and the sweet scent of jasmine in the crisp mountain air... Grab your sweater and wind your way through through the 7 sacred gardens amongst the array of colorful birds and butterflies. Pour a cup of freshly brewed Peruvian coffee or prepare your own blend of warm herbal tea brewed from healing herbs snipped that morning. Walk a few steps down the stone path to and stretch your body with an all-levels morning yoga practice before indulging in an array of delicious organic vegetarian breakfast selections. After breakfast stroll through the lush gardens once more for a morning meditation under the crown jewel of the property the thousand-year-old lucuma tree, Maliki – which means both tree and ancestor.
After meditation grab your backpack and your camera as we prepare to drive through the picturesque and winding roads of the Sacred Valley to explore the ancient terraces and ruins of Pisaq. As we hike the hillside path our local Peruvian guide will offer stories of culture and history belonging to the people of this fertile and rich land. (At almost 10,000 ft above sea level the view from the top of the agricultural terraces and lush valley below will take your breath away.) After hiking the trail we’ll gather with our Ayllu – spiritual community or family – to overlook the terraces while enjoying our picnic lunch lovingly prepared by our chef. Then we’ll descend back into the valley to walk the cobblestone streets, peruse the outdoor market for brightly colored handcrafted goods, and take in the sights with an icy cold Pisco sour overlooking the small town square. After an afternoon of sight-seeing and shopping, we’ll drive back through the countryside arriving at the retreat center for a gourmet Peruvian dinner.
Relax in an outdoor floral bath under a velvet night sky bejeweled with the Milky Way. Carved from stone and set in secluded garden spots, these baths are heated and energized by the sun during the day. At night the water is infused with flowers, medicinal herbs and organic Maras salt for a luxurious soak under the stars before bed. Then get a peaceful night’s sleep because the next morning we’re headed out looking for adventure! We will wake before sunrise and follow the rushing waters of the sacred Rio Urubamba by train for our privately guided tour to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Machu Picchu.
Enjoy the history, tales and majestic beauty of the Andes, embodied transformation in our signature yoga classes, deepening of your spiritual connection with new soulwork workshops, an insider’s experience of the amazing Quechua people, and be sure to look for a once in a lifetime opportunity for your very own alpaca selfie!
