Join Michele Klink for mystery, magic and mysticism in the Sacred Valley of Peru.
This epic journey of a lifetime will take you through the peaks and valleys of your own heart, as we venture out of our ‘shelters’ and, with a small group, explore the travel world of wonder.
The first 6 nights of your ten-day journey will be supported with daily Yoga classes led by Michele Klink in a beautiful retreat center surrounded by lush vegetation of native plants, fruit trees, and nourished by a magnificent waterfall deep in the Sacred Valley. These daily Yoga and Meditation practices, blended with mystical experiences, will provide insight and inspiration that will deeply reconnect you with the passions of your heart and open the windows to your Soul. An expert and loved local guide will lead you on rich cultural excursions in the Sacred Valley, including a tour to a local alpaca farm and a visit with local artisans. Peruvian cuisine will divinely delight your palate each day and night. From Sacred Valley, your journey will continue via train to explore the mysterious and mystical ruins of Machu Picchu for a transformational experience of Peru's great “Wonder’s of the World”. The trip will conclude in Cusco where we will soak in the vibrancy of the city, enjoy local food and visit several historical sites.
This sacred journey provides a special opportunity to be personally guided through a land steeped in culture, tradition, and history. You will experience sacred practices, Shaman’s ceremonies, and visit many magical ruins dotted throughout this mystical land, the sanctuary for the ancient and intelligent Inca culture. Your sacred journey is not just about the beauty from travel, not just about meeting new friends, but also about awakening the divine spark within your own heart and soul.

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.
