A YOGA RETREAT & CULTURAL IMMERSION
With Cynthia Lorena & Jessica Mahler
April 13th–20th, 2019, PERU
Join Cynthia Lorena and Jessica Mahler on a powerfully healing retreat to Machu Picchu, Peru that will reinvigorate your spirit and awaken your potential, deepening your connection to nature and all that is around you. Staying in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, you will be led through dynamic daily yoga classes and meditations, inspired by visits to sacred sites, nourished by delicious meals, and so much more. Immersed in the Andes Mountains, known for its rich quartz terrain, a crystal known for stimulating the immune system and bringing the body and chakras into balance, the natural vibrations emanating from this spiritual land will help promote harmony, clarity, and calmness.
Join us on this incredible journey to explore the ancient cultural traditions of the Andean people to help you discover the sacred connection to yourself for a deeply affective experience that will cleanse and reignite your soul’s purpose.
Please note that this retreat will require A LOT of walking and A LOT of climbing stairs throughout the ancient sites.
