"I arrived with a break in mind, a chance to cut loose and ponder some of life's challenges. I returned recharged and clearer after being carried by the warmth of the AYR team. The immersion into yoga and meditation provided a one stop shop for healing. All of this while being rocked in the song of the ocean nearby. A breath-taking location bathed in friendship that also puts nourishing, healthy food on the table - what more does your soul need?"

"A retreat that is as flexible as the staff - awesome! I really feel like it will have a big impact on me when I return home."

"As soon as you arrive at the retreat you can feel the energy and calmness enter your body. The retreat experience is an elixir not only for your body through the daily yoga sessions and nourishing food, but also for your mind, as the learning experiences can be applied to everyday life."
~ C. Morris

"On the first day of my retreat I was apprehensive as to who I would meet, what I would eat, where I would sleep and how many yoga sessions I would participate in. It did not take long before my anxiety turned to a peaceful calm and to be honest, a feeling as if I had found home. I can honestly say that I met the most amazing, inspiring and genuine mix of ecectic people, ate like an organic vegetarian queen, slept the most restful nights sleep and took great joy in participating in each and every one of the 3 yoga practices per day, for the week of my retreat. You have blessed me with an experience that I will sincerely cherish forever and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there at a time when I needed you the most. See you again soon!"

Paz Y Luz Yoga Hike - Sacred Valley, Peru
"Paz y Luz" - meaning "Peace & Light" in Spanish - is a beautiful retreat center situated in the Incan village of Pisac, between Cusco and one of the top five must-see destinations in the world: Machu Picchu. And there couldn't be a better home (or name!) for our yoga retreat in Peru! World Yoga Trips Peru is a yoga & hiking adventure for travelers looking to connect with their inner peace and light while making new friends, learning cool moves and having a BLAST in one of the most energetically charged places on earth! Nearby ancient Inkan ruins, ceremonial sites, temples and an abundance of cultural activities beckon. For hikers, winding rivers, charming villages and high mountain meadows where herds of llama and alpaca graze await exploration. Our fully inclusive retreat includes gourmet vegetarian cuisine, authentic Andean ceremonies, guided adventures through Incan sites, sunlit yoga studios & more!
The Sacred Valley of the Incas, or the Urubamba Valley, is a valley in the Andes Mountains of Peru, about one hour drive over beautiful highlands surrounded by snow-capped mountains from the Inca capital of Cusco. The Sacred Valley runs from the city of Pisac (where we’ll be staying!) through small villages, many constructed during the Inca era, to the ancient village of Ollantaytambo, where trains depart for Machu Picchu.
What's a Yoga Hike?
Many people come to the Sacred Valley of Peru to experience the beauty and magic of trekking in the Andes Mountains. Too often, however, the combination of grueling trekking schedules and greasy food take their toll on the body, making it difficult for them to fully enjoy the experience. As experienced trekking guides and yoga practitioners, we wanted to offer a better way to experience some of the world's most breathtaking scenery. After much experimenting and exploration on how to integrate hiking and yoga, we found a winning formula. Our yoga treks have been carefully designed to combine the best elements of each. We provide a gentle trekking schedule, exercises to stretch muscles and ease breathing, and time to relax, reflect and enjoy the location. Daily group yoga treks are included in the price of this retreat (2 days at Machu Picchu, one day at Ollantaytambo, one day at the Pisac Ruins, one day at the Lares Hot Springs, and one day at the Moray and the Salt Flats).
Elective Yoga Classes
Yoga is an amazing tool to promote self-awareness, self-esteem, body awareness and ultimately Self-Love! Many people gravitate to yoga because physical/mental results are quick - plus it's FUN! Whether you're an absolute beginner or experienced yogi/yogini, we have some of the best yoga teachers on the planet. In addition to daily yoga treks, elective yoga classes offered in Peru may include vinyasa, hatha, yin, yoga nidra or "peace out" for total relaxation. Participants may take 1 - 2 elective yoga classes per day (classes can be 60, 75 or 90 min each).
