Yoga Retreat to Cusco & Machu Picchu, Peru

Friday, June 20th - Saturday, June 28th, 2025


Join Vanessa, Meg and the Heart Sangha on a retreat to source: our beloved sun. This solstice-centered trip has been curated to engage our highest vibrations at a time that energy is high in the Sacred Valley and Cusco.

We will begin our sacred journey in Peru by traveling to the UNESCO World Heritage site, Machu Picchu. Here we will ask our spirit guides for a safe journey to include growth and abundant energy from the Sun. Machu Picchu sits at 8,000 ft, so this will give us a day to acclimatize before we head to Cusco at 12,000 ft. Preparations will be made prior to our departure so that you can have a safe and easeful transition into the high altitude. Once in Cusco, we will celebrate the Inti Raymi (the awakening of consciousness/solstice) festival with vibrant parades that bring the city to life. 


This trip has been planned with intention to support the Peruvian people through eco-tourism. Located just above the city of Cusco in one of the strongest energetic regions on earth, surrounded by powerful ruins and temples, stunning views and hidden waterfalls you will find our amazing hosts at Pachananda (Pacha=time/space/realm & ananda=spiritual bliss). With its mission to raise collective vibration through how we live our lives and a focus on environmental responsibility through renewable energy sources, and locally-sourced food, Pachananda ensures a positive relationship with nature and the local community.
