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, to aid the growing of all the crops on the extensive terraces. The locals were farming on the terraces as recently as 20 years ago. The Sacred Valley is still where much of the best produce is grown in this
area of Peru. As the mummies that are underground here have not been removed (as they have at Machu Picchu), many find that the energy here is quite strong. Although it got windy with a little rain, it was awesome to explore another ancient Incan site.
This afternoon we completed our retreat with a yoga nidra session. We planted the seeds of our spiritual resolves, while in a deeply relaxed, yet aware state. Our closing circle was a powerful reflection of our individual work this week. We celebrated the end of our Sabiduria retreat and Johannes’ birthday with a delicious final dinner at Maxi’s Chakana Cafe.
