Join Lloyd Hawthorn in partnership with Yoga Sakti for an adventure to Peru's Sacred Valley, where you will explore the depths of your practice and the heights of Peru's incredible landscape. During this retreat you will experience the beauty and majesty of Machu Picchu firsthand, along with several other ancient Incan wonders.
We will begin our journey with 6 nights at a vibrant retreat center surrounded by mountains and lush gardens. During the first few days you will have the chance to acclimate to the altitude as you enjoy spa treatments and rejuvenating yoga classes with Lloyd. By day three, you will head off on daily excursions with our expert local guide Valentine. Hiking through ancient Incan cities, strolling through local markets, and visiting Valentin's family farm for a traditional Peruvian meal, are just a few of the highlights! By day seven, you will board the train to Aguas Calientes, where you will prepare for the next day's big adventure! After a quick bus ride up the mountainside, you will explore all that Machu Picchu has to offer, including the option to hike Huayna Picchu, the steep mountain that sits directly behind Macchu Pichhu, offering some of the world's most spectacular views. After our time exploring thisincredible ancient Incan city, you will make your way back to the train and head to the vibrant city of Cusco for the last 2 nights! During your time in Cusco you will again have the chance to dive deeply into your yoga practice with Lloyd, taste the local cuisine, visit a llama farm, and maybe even do a bit of Salsa dancing!

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.
