CXXD: Root & Rise in Peru: Yoga, Culture & Machu Picchu

Join Kristen for a magical journey to Peru where you will have the opportunity to explore one of the seven modern wonders of the world, Machu Picchu! As we step away from our hectic lives, we will connect to the natural world and the unique culture around us, allowing us to reconnect to our true nature. Our adventure will begin in the mystical Sacred Valley where we will take time to explore the ancient sacred rituals and vibrant culture of Peru. Our quaint retreat center is surrounded by native plants, fruit trees, and nourished by a magnificent waterfall deep inside the Valley. We will then begin our ascent to Machu Picchu. Visiting this wondrous UNESCO World Heritage site is a trip of a lifetime. As we open ourselves to this outer journey, we will also dive deep inside our yoga practice! Enjoy daily yoga with Kristen in the beautiful yoga shala as well as rich cultural excursions led by our expert local guide, Valentine. Our trip will culminate with time in the vibrant city of Cusco, exploring the vast history and cultural ceremonies of this very special part of the world. Experience this one-of-a-kind adventure with a community of like-minded individuals and return home with memories for a lifetime!

FAQ

When should I place my deposit for this trip?

We strongly recommend placing a deposit to secure your space on this trip as soon as possible. Given the complexity of this journey, there are multiple reservations which require significant advanced booking and financial commitments. These are made on your behalf (space permitting) as soon as you place your deposit. These types of reservations include but are not limited to: multiple hotel bookings, train tickets, bus transportation, entry permits to Huyana Picchu (extremely limited & government regulated) and more. We will do everything we can to confirm all necessary reservations and permits however, we can not guarantee these arrangements without advanced booking. For questions please email info@internationalyoga.com.

What are the accommodations like?

Our retreat center is a natural and transformative setting, perfect for diving deep into the practice of yoga. Body, mind, and soul can be nourished and fed in the center's outdoor and indoor yoga spaces. These simple yet lovely accommodations will be home in the sacred valley as you explore both your yoga practice as well as the nearby ancient ruins. 

During our time in Aguas Calientes and Cusco, we will stay at hotels selected carefully for their location and level of service. More details will be provided upon registration.

How many people are expected on this trip?

Attendance varies from trip to trip, but 15-25 attendees is a general average.

What if I am traveling alone?

We get hundreds of travelers each year who go on retreat alone. If you are traveling without a friend or partner, but prefer to share your room, we will do our best to match you with another traveler of the same gender. If for some reason, we are not able to match you with a roommate, a single supplement will apply.

 

If you prefer to have your own private room, a single supplement will apply.

Do I need a visa for travel to Peru?

American citizen visitors to Peru do not need a visa if they are traveling as a tourist with a valid U.S. passport. You will be issued a tourist card upon entry, which is valid for up to 90 days.

What airport do I fly into?

You will book your international flights into and out of Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (Code: CUZ) to arrive on September 24, 2020, and depart on October 3, 2020.

Are there group airfares?

No, there are no group airfares, as we will have people joining us from all over the US, with some arriving early, some arriving late, some using miles, etc. We are happy to provide guidance, resorces for booking and review any itineraries you are considering. Please contact us before purchasing flights, and as always, travel insurance is strongly recommended.

Are airport transfers included in the price of my trip?

Yes, private airport transfers are included in the price of your trip. We recommend arriving on the morning of September 24th. Note if you arrive early and decide to stay at an alternate location other than our group hotel, you will be responsible for coordinating and paying for your own transportation directly with the hotel where you will be staying.

Are meals included?

All meals are included during the first 7 days of the program in the Sacred Valley at our retreat center. Lunches and dinners are not included during our days in Aguas Calientes and Cusco.

What is the cancellation policy for this trip and is there increased flexibility in the time of CV-19?

All retreats include a $500 non-refundable deposit, which is required to hold your spot on the trip. If you cancel prior to the final balance due date we will refund your payment minus the non-refundable deposit. All payments are non-refundable after the final balance due date. International Yoga must strictly adhere to its cancellation policy to offset costs incurred prior to the commencement of retreat. Click here to view the Terms and Conditions to which you agree upon registration. Travel Insurance which covers 'Cancel For Any Reason, which must be purchased in a timely manner after registering, is strongly recommended. 

Additional Flexibility in the time of Covid-19:  Your deposit can be transferred to another retreat with Kristen and IY to be applied at a later date anytime before the final balance is collected. We will be collecting final balances later to allow more time for you to make a final decision about participation. If the retreat is prevented from running due to government travel restrictions to our destination country we will postpone the retreat and transfer your reservation and all payments towards the new date.

Do I need Travel Insurance?

Yes. As all payments to International Yoga are non-refundable, the purchase of travel insurance is strongly recommended to ensure you are covered should any unexpected event arise. A personal, political, environmental, health or weather-related incident or pre-existing medical condition may prevent or interrupt your travels.  Should you elect to not purchase travel insurance, note that you will be assuming 100% of any costs incurred for trip cancellation or trip interruption. 

There are a broad variety of policies and providers for you to choose from. Be sure to understand the fine print of the policy you select to ensure you know exactly what is and isn’t covered — especially if you are concerned you may need to cancel for COVID-19 / pandemic-related reasons which most carriers would cover only under a "Cancel for Any Reason" tier of coverage. IMPORTANT: in order to guarantee maximum coverage, most travel insurance providers require that you obtain a policy within 5-10 days of placing your initial deposit. Although International Yoga cannot advise on specific policies or providers, you may find this guide helpful.
