Yoga Mandala Sacred Valley
Nestled in the magical Sacred Valley of Peru, the Yoga Mandala Retreat Center sits at the base of mountains Pitisuray and Sawasiray outside the village of Arin. The grounds at the Yoga Mandala are covered in flowers and fruit trees, while majestic rocks and cliffside ancient burial sites linger overhead. Fresh clear waters rush down from the mountains, channeled into waterways through the grounds, calming, purifying, and irrigating the gardens.
The magic in the valley is tangible, a unique opportunity to stay among the Quechua people and near ancient Inca temples and ruins, as you embrace the call to go deeper into your own sacred journey.
The location offers a special opportunity to connect with the vibrations of nature, taking a relaxing break to immerse in the practices of meditation, yoga, creative self-exploration, and deep appreciation of the beauty within and around you.
Yoga Mandala offers comfortable accommodation, beautiful gardens, cleansing waterfalls, delicious vegetarian cuisine and stunning views of the apus (sacred mountains) and surrounding lands. The center holds a strong energy, with an appreciation for the balance and purity of nature.
The rooms are simple, comfortable and elegant,and beds are covered in comfortable feather duvets. Each room has a private bathroom with hot water all day. The majestic views of the Andes and snow-capped mountains give you a glimpse of the valley.
The dining area is a comfortable communal space cosmically decorated in Shipibo Ayahuasca prints and handpainted art. A cozy common area provides a fireplace for relaxing.
Yoga Mandala has been designed to have the least possible impact on the surroundings eco system. The center is eco-friendly, made from local materials, and spacious—providing you with comfort and solitude ideal for your own spiritual growth.
The yoga temple is Mandala style, made with wooden floors and windows from floor to ceiling, allowing a full view of the surroundings and enabling you to find the nature within you.
Accommodations are surrounded with a wide variety of flowers and native trees, with water streams as background. The medicinal garden is designed with a full range of healing native herbs, giving guests the privilege to taste our home made herbal teas.

We welcome you to join us for a week of exploration and healing in the sacred Andes mountains of Peru.

Through yoga, meditation and the healing power of plant medicine, we invite you to reacquaint yourself with your truth. Together we will laugh, dance and throw to the fire all that no longer serves us as we head into the season of new beginning. To finally once and for all, come home.
The setting for our retreat will take place amongst the beauty of the ancient sacred valley at the Yoga Mandala Retreat Center in the Andes of Peru. Full accommodations along with three locally sourced vegetarian meals daily will be provided for the week. The energy of the land will bring peace of mind along with our daily yoga classes (2x per day) as well as meditation, and other activities.
