Yoga Retreat Theme: Facing, Feeling and Clearing the Fear

As my teacher in India, Sri Bhagavan said, “Fear is the greatest obstacle on the spiritual path. Confront your fears.” On this retreat, we will explore our various fears and their many faces: anxiety, apprehension, worry, control, and settling for less than full on living. Do not worry, we won’t force anyone to do anything wild, although we will invite those who are willing to walk through a very short cave at the end of the retreat, at the sacred site of Saqsaywaman near Cusco.

At the same time, it is crucial that we do not get stuck in lower vibration fear and worry as we move forward into this shift on Earth into a New Paradigm of higher energy and joy and love.

Why Peru, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley?

Machu Picchu lies at the far end of the Sacred Valley. This sacred Incan site is the most visited ancient ruins in the hemisphere. Machu Picchu is like a magnet, attracting mystics, yogis and adventurist from all over the world. This 15th century sacred site was kept hidden from the invading Spaniards, only discovered by the West in the early 20th century.

But the Sacred Valley is so much more than Machu Picchu. What awaits us are amazing villages, temples, ruins, waterfalls, hikes, ceremony along the Urubamba River and surrounded by majestic mountains. We will visit during the dry season, without the rains, with cool mornings and warm sunny days.

Accommodations and Meals

Above is a picture of the yoga dome.

Accommodations are double or triple occupancy, with a couple dorms available for $100 less per person. Our home for 7 of the 10 nights is Quinsacocha, which translates as “Three Worlds”. Quinsacocha is the perfect place for our visit to the Sacred Valley. It is located near Urubamba, in the heart of the sacred valley, within range of all the amazing villages, hikes and Machu Picchu itself. It has amazing food, fresh from the organic garden. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The yoga space is sacred and cozy. What drew us mostly was the warmth and kindness of the hosts. Ilse is from South Africa and her partner is Peruvian. Their new baby is named Gorka!  Ilse will also teach one of the classes for us.

“The Peru retreat was amazing! It was more than I had ever anticipated. Every day had something wonderful to offer – morning yoga, incredible day trips, opportunities to learn from the local residents, meaningful workshops, and delicious Peruvian meals shared with wonderful yogis. I left renewed, hopeful, and with a bubble of positive energy around me that I continue to share with my family and friends. ” – Glen, 2018 Peru retreat

About the instructors:

Roy Holman


Roy Holman: I am a 500 hour Certified Yoga teacher, in the Viniyoga tradition. I teach a safe, gentle, body-friendly, grounded, breath-connected, meditative, flowing traditional hatha yoga – a meditation in motion really. I like to move slow, give time to breathe deeply and savor the poses. I also teach breath-work (pranayama) and meditation, and also try to incorporate the many aspects of emotional healing and balancing I have learned. The meditation is a mindfulness style, with focus on breath awareness, heart opening, body senses, emotional clearing, and connection on all levels (body, breath, emotions, Earth, Spirit).
