We enjoyed a beautiful summer day in New England helping friends do some gardening. Too hot for many but not us Ticos, Pura Vida.
Wow what a great surprise for Peter’s 60th. We ended up in Quebec City with family and friends. Lots of sites and sabors, se jolie, we all enjoyed an amazing birthday dinner at the best fondue place in the city(La Grolla).
Panacea on the Road to Peru Sabidura We named this journey Sabiduria, as this is a Spanish word for “the wisdom that endures”. We figured that this tied in well with the purpose of visiting the ancient ruins of the Incas, a very wise culture. Our retreat began in Cusco – where we all gathered […]
Another great morning yoga session – opening our hips to get ready for hiking in the ruins. A yummy breakfast, then we were off to explore Inti Huaytana. These ruins are a short cab ride away from Paz Y Luz, and are quite vast. Inti Huaytana was where the Incas “tied” the sun, […]
Yoga in the glass enclosed studio this morning at Paz Y Luz – a beautiful space, though just a little chilly, especially for the Costa Ricans! After a yummy breakfast, off to the markets of Pisac. It is either a nice 15 minute walk by the river or a very short ride in the […]
We enjoyed yoga on the rooftop again before boarding Perurail back to the sacred valley. Jesus and driver meet us at the station for 1 and a 1/2 hour ride to Paz y Luz, our new digs. Maxi had a yummy lunch of pumpkin herb soup and eggplant parmigiana with corn pasta waiting for us. […]
A quick morning yoga class to get us ready for our full day at Machu Picchu!!! A short walk from our hotel to line up and catch the bus, then a 25 minute ride up the switchbacks to enter the ruins. One of the seven wonders of the world, with good reason. Wow! Jesus and […]
We had our morning asana, pranayama, and meditation practice to start our day, followed by Jacky’s breakfast. Then we all finished packing and began our journey to Aguas Calientes, at the foot of Machu Picchu. We had our guide, Jesus, with us in the van, so we took the opportunity to stop for incredible views […]
We began the day with asana and meditation, enjoying the city views from our rooftop studio. Had some yummy banana pancakes for breakfast – thanks to Jacky for all the love she put into our food. We had our morning discussion on the spirituality of the Incan culture and ways in which this is similar […]
Great morning yoga and meditation. Then off to a fun walking tour of Cusco’s downtown area. Had some refreshments and heard awesome traditional pan flute music. The rest of the group arrived today, and our Sabiduria retreat began with the opening circle this evening. We set our intentions for a week of exploring Incan history […]
