PERU

Peru Culture & Yoga Adventure

From the colonial beauty of Cusco to the peaceful history of the Sacred Valley, our Peru yoga retreat adventure ensures that you get an enriching and rejuvenating mix of the best Peru has to offer on and off the mat.

Soak up the sights and sounds of Peru at the markets and immerse in culture and laughter with the local Amaru community.  From Cusco, the former capital of the Incan Empire, and the gateway to the Sacred Valley of Peru you’ll travel by Vistadome train and enjoy two visits to Machu Picchu so that you can soak up this Andean wonder.

Our Peru yoga retreat includes morning flows to get you ready for epic adventure days and evening wind-down practices that give you time to savor the day.  The Travel Yogi’s yoga retreats in Peru feature luxury accommodations that range from a modern luxe resort to a colonial hacienda and a former monastery. The variety of accommodations give us the opportunity to unroll our mats on terraces, verandahs and a historic chapel.

Every step of our yoga wellness retreat is guided by local experts who ensure a full, and local, cultural experience from ancient Incan to modern Peruvian.  Journey through time, cultures, local cuisine, extraordinary yoga flows, city-vibes and Andean magic on a one-of-a-kind Peru yoga retreat adventure.

Citizens of the U.S. will need a valid passport to visit Peru.  Passports must have at least one blank page per entry stamp.  Visas will be issued, for free, upon arrival. Entry requirements can change so for up to date information please visit the State Department's page for Peru.  Nationals of all other countries should check entry requirements with their government.
No shots are required at this time for travel to Peru.  Of course we recommend that you be up to date on all of your vaccinations.  Any specific inoculation or health questions should be directed to your personal physician.
Yes!  Vegetarians will have no difficulty and all other requests should be able to be accommodated as long as we have sufficient notice of at least four weeks prior to departure.  Please contact The Travel Yogi with any dietary questions.
While travel insurance is not required it is strongly recommended.  We recommend Travel Guard, thought you may get insurance through any reputable company.
On this adventure, yes, you will need to bring your own mat.  Your mat and luggage will be transported for you once on the trip, but you will need to bring a mat from home.  The Travel Yogi teachers that embark on this adventure will be designing classes that do not require props, so no need to bring a strap or a block.
Yup, all of our lux locations will have wifi available.
Peru uses a mix of the standard, non-grounded North American plug (type A) and the European two-prong (type C).  Please note that you'll likely need an adaptor for the type A plug as many US plugs have one prong that is larger than the other while a true type A plug has two flat parallel blades. The voltage is 220-230V so a converter may be required.
While our Peru yoga retreat adventure covers multiple regions in Peru, in general the peak season is the Peruvian winter of May to September.  These are the drier months with cooler temperatures.  December through March is the wettest season with heavy rain showers while April and October can be unpredictable with the weather but have fewer travelers.
Yes!  Of course.  Once you're booked you'll receive an email with important logistical information and a link to your invoice.  You can pay any amount at any time on the invoice; you can use it as a payment plan or leave it alone until the final due date. Remember that deposits are non-refundable so, on all trips, we recommend purchasing travel insurance.
