We believe it is important to combine the yoga practice (shatkarma, pranayama, meditation and asanas) with the nature and our connection with the Pachamama ( Mother Earth). That´s why we include in our program the preparation and sharing of the Pachamanca, an ancient Andean dish and an offering ceremony to the Pachamama. Also, to allow you to take advantage of being in this Inca country we'll take you to visiting our main ruins and some other important turistic places.
