SACRED VITALITY: A YOGA & AYURVEDA RETREAT WITH HEIDI L. AUDET

Peru

Highlights

Daily yoga practice

Overview

Join Retreat leader, Heidi L. Audet, for this 7-day retreat and rediscover your sacred vitality, your innate ability to replenish and renew your mind, body and spirit.

In the Andean cultures of Peru, there is a fundamental belief that “energy exists in all things (the spiritual life force) and that this energy needs to be maintained in a balanced state. This energy exists in all-natural forms, including trees, plants, rivers, glaciers, lakes, rocks and high mountain peaks …There is a belief amongst the Quechua people that “all life comes from Mother Earth (Pachamama) and returns to her upon death. When the energy becomes unbalanced or out of alignment, rituals are required to regain equilibrium.”

Similarly, Yoga and Ayurveda, both extensions of Samkhya Philosophy, also believe in spirits or energy (Parusha) and in matter, or nature (Prakriti).  When Prakriti is out of balance (known as Vikriti), and we are not in concert with our true nature, we become dis-regulated. We need practices or rituals to bring us back into homeostasis. An Ayurvedic Spring cleanse is an example of one ritualistic practice to regain equilibrium. We will explore these concepts a little deeper during the retreat.

During your retreat, you will be surrounded by beautiful nature and opportunities to experience balanced wellness. This is the perfect retreat for you to gather your friends, siblings, or significant others, and immerse yourselves in the sacred energy of Peru.

Experience daily meditation, pranayama, and a morning yoga asana practice to prepare you for the day; luxuriate in a daily evening restorative yoga class to help you rest, heal and renew at the conclusion of your day.

Accommodation

Sacred Valley
€1577 Per person per stay
The retreat center’s name translates as “love from the ancient forest.” It is nestled in an oasis of native plants and fruit trees, nourished by a magnificent waterfall in the Sacred Valley of Peru. This lovely spot is in the Andes Mountains and home of the twelve mountains known as Apus—“luminous beings.” Those who come to the center have the opportunity to commune directly with these mountains, as well as with the local curanderos and pacos (healers), who engage with us for ritual and Despacho ceremony. The guests at this center enjoy delicious meals with locally-grown and lovingly-prepared ingredients. Each guest room is a reflection of the Peruvian culture of the Sacred Valley. The entire center embodies kindness, love, and wholeness that seem to permeate the magical place.
