Join this Yoga Holiday in Peru at the Andean Spirit Lodge, a tranquil place, conducive to rest and contemplation. Here you may breathe fresh air and enjoy the beautiful scenery surrounding you, like the majestic snowy peak of Mount Humantay, whilst letting yourself be pampered with delicious and healthy vegetarian meals. Our Yoga Holidays offer you the opportunity to begin or deepen your Yoga practice, whilst you may enjoy sightseeing, walks and sufficient free time to rest or do your own thing. All activities are optional and we are flexible to adjust our programs to your personal needs. All the retreats are private and tailor made for your very needs.
Andean Spirit Lodge is situated in midst of nature in the warm Limatambo Valley 90 km from Cusco. We offer accommodation in four cozy bungalows with a maximum of five people each, with private attached bathrooms and hot water all day. Our big lounge provides ample space for recreation with arm chairs, hammocks and a soul warming log fireplace. We have a large garden with a fruit orchard, a big organic vegetable plot and areas where you may relax and a place for bonfires. We also have a small library with topics related to Yoga and self-development at your disposal. Our fully screened Yoga and meditation hall is set apart in the garden. You may participate in Yoga and meditation or simply enjoy the peace that our guesthouse radiates. We offer facilities for groups or instructors wishing to conduct their own workshops, conferences or courses. It does not necessarily have to be Yoga; we are open for your suggestions.
We practice and teach Hatha Yoga using the Sivananda style. Our Yoga classes last for 1 hours each and consist of a combination of postures, breath work and relaxation. Previous knowledge of Yoga is not necessary. In the mornings and the evenings you have the option to participate in meditation with devotional chants, mantras and readings of the teachings of Swami Sivananda or other masters. We have a collection of books and videos about Yoga and spiritual development which we are happy to share with you. We are also always open for conversations about these topics
