Peru, which is located on the western coast of South America, boasts an ancient culture, a rich heritage and breathtaking landscapes. From snow covered peaks and glaciers high above to exotic lagoons down below, Peru is home to the Amazon rainforest and Machu Picchu. No doubt, Peru is magical, and a rare wonder of nature. As if this is not enough, its extremely warm-hearted people are as unique as the land they inhabit, and they routinely welcome visitors to get in touch with the soul of their country. Natural and archaeological beauty, and timeless traditions, make Peru an ideal wellness sanctuary for this unique retreat.

This program will teach you the ancient traditions of yoga through daily workshops. You’ll visit historic Incan sites, and explore cities and temples. You’ll also have the unique experience of performing sun salutations overlooking the Sacred Valley or at The Gateway to the Sun in Machu Picchu, allowing your spirit to slowly awaken your body, mind and soul, and reconnect you with the simple joy of life.

Peru is a rare jewel that you’ll want to capture on film. Electrifying Peruvian backdrops combined with colonial Spanish and historical Incan Empire influences make unique and compelling photographs. If you enjoy the luxuries of a guided tour but don't like being on a tight schedule, then this journey is right for you! Nonetheless, discover Machu Picchu, built in approximately 1450 and recognized by UNESCO as a World Cultural and Natural Heritage site while learning and applying photography techniques to capture the mesmerizing scenery.

For those who enjoy golf, experience one of the oldest courses in South America, the 18-hole Country Club Golf Course in Lima. Did the Scottish really invent golf or could the oldest known golf course be part of a great Incan ruin in Machu Picchu, undiscovered until 1911? It's still considered a mystery. We've combined three of the most popular interests, yoga, photography and golf, for the price of one!


Yoga is an ancient discipline that originated in India with the goal of obtaining a state of permanent peace and is one of the six orthodox schools of Hindu philosophy. Hatha yoga emerged as a prominent tradition of yoga in the turn of the millennia and is distinct from Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, marking the development of asanas into the full body postures now in popular usage and, along with its many modern variations, is the style that many people associate with the word yoga today. Hindu monks, beginning with Swami Vivekananda, brought yoga to the West in the late 19th century. It wasn’t until the 1980s that yoga became popular as a system of physical exercise across the Western world. Whether you’re a novice or experienced, male or female, come embrace this ancient tradition in one of the most mystical places of the world, Machu Picchu, Peru.

Macchu Picchu

As a group, we will welcome each new day during your yoga retreat with a specially designed morning yoga session. Imagine performing sun salutations overlooking the Sacred Valley or at the Gateway to the Sun in Machu Picchu. The Incas worshipped the sun god.

Throughout the retreat, we'll learn more about the ancient traditions of yoga and those of the Incan Empire with its ancient cities and temples. In the sacred space we create for ourselves, the spirit will slowly awaken and reconnect with the simple joys of life.

There will be plenty of time to discover yourself and those ancient traditions, take in spectacular views, meet new friends, and enjoy the many sites and unique experiences which are available. We have allowed time for relaxation, spa treatments, optional hiking, witnessing ancient Andean ceremonies and visiting a local community.

You will return home feeling truly refreshed, recharged and inspired. These locales are the ideal setting for your retreat and offer a beautiful backdrop, a range of wellness treatments, organic cuisine and plenty of opportunities to relax.
