Accommodation & Rates
Yoga Mandala Sacred Valley will be our home for the week. This beautiful retreat center is located underneath a beautiful waterfall at the base of two sacred mountains, where the native cultures still work the land as they have for centuries, with love and simplicity. Yoga Mandala was designed to have the least possible impact on the surroundings ecosystem. The center is eco-friendly, made from local materials, and spacious—providing personal privacy and solitude ideal for spiritual growth, contemplation, meditation and creation. The rooms are cozy and equipped with comfortable feather duvets. Each room has a private bathroom.
Airfare is not included.
A $500 deposit is due by June 1, 2018.
Prepare for your retreat
The key to packing for Peru is to pack for a variety of conditions while keeping the weight to a minimum. The best way to deal with the extreme temperatures is to dress using several layers rather than one thick coat or sweater. If you forget something, don't worry, as most items can be purchased in Cusco and surrounding towns, including excellent (and inexpensive) alpaca (wool) sweaters.
