"The reward is hard to beat: a view of the ancient city rising out of the midst at sunrise.” - National Geographic on Machu Picchu
Santa Teresa, Costa Rica (PRWEB) April 20, 2016
Since 2010 Vajra Sol has been running yoga retreats in Peru when tourism began to grow significantly and the country was viewed as an up and coming culturally rich and diverse travel destination. The 2016 summer and fall dates are July 15 - 23 and October 21 - 29.
June through November is the ideal time to visit the Sacred Valley when the weather is the driest in the Andean Mountain region.
In the wellness niche of the travel industry, yoga retreats are a popular type of vacation particularly for the North American woman traveler who wants to be on an organized group trip for the social and safety aspects and because it frees up their time and effort from researching and planning. The yoga element also gives a more meaningful purpose to their trip that includes regular yoga sessions for all levels and traditional spiritual Andean ceremonies.
National Geographic magazine listed Machu Picchu in their recent special edition issue currently on newsstands, 100 Places That Will Change Your Life, stating about Machu Picchu, “the reward is hard to beat: a view of the ancient city rising out of the midst at sunrise.”
The Peru yoga retreat is a fully guided trip by the retreat leader, Sandra Tedeschi, and local Peruvian guides who are experts in the Incan history, culture and archeological sites.
The retreat begins and ends in Cusco, the former Incan capital and today a fusion of the modern and ancient cultures. Travelers fly to Lima and then take the 1-hour flight onto Cusco.
The 8-night retreat includes five nights near the town of Urubamba in a traditional Andean lodge, one night at Aguas Calientes at the base of Machu Picchu, and two nights in Cusco. The retreat cost is US $2,625 for single occupancy and US $2,300 for double occupancy. To ensure quality attention to each traveler retreats are limited to 16 persons. Retreats typically book up 3-4 months in advance.
Vajra Sol Yoga Adventures is based in Costa Rica and was founded in 2005 to bring together like-minded travelers who have an affinity for yoga and adventure activities in a pristine nature setting. Vajra Sol offers yoga, surf, and stand up paddle (SUP) retreats in Costa Rica throughout the year and yoga adventures to the Sacred Valley of Peru between the months of June and October.
