Yoga and meditation
We are offering yogaclasses with self massage and guided relaxation every morning.
We are also offering meditation classes morning and evening, and also in sacres sites.
We teach from the 8 limbed path of Rajadhiraja Yoga/ Asthanga Yoga
Asana practice is a set of physical exercises that:
- increases the flexibility of the body
- helps maintain hormonal balance
- establishes balance between body and mind
- prepares the mind for subtle thinking and deeper meditation.
- helps blood circulation, massages tissues and glands
The relationship between the physical body and the mind is very close. Many physiological and psychological irregularities are due to hormonal imbalances. Hence Ananda Marga asanas have either a pressurizing or depressurizing effect on specific points in the body in order to establish and maintain an appropriate hormonal balance.
Asanas are postures in which one can remain in physical comfort and psychic composure. In this system, asanas are practiced for physical health and spiritual elevation.
Asanas may be practiced with individual repetitions or vinyasa style with repetition.
WE MEDITATE TOGETHER TWICE DAILY.
I guide the meditation and will also teach a mantra evryone can use.
We also learn shielding and grounding.
We will meditate together in a group, which strenghtens the effects of meditation.

The diet ~ yogic and vegan~
On these trips you will be served deliciously, prepared vegan, sattvic food.
The diet is a yogic diet ( also called ayurvedic) ~ sattvic diet.
We use locally grown produce and ingredients, mostly organic.
There will be smoothies, salsads, quinoa, soups, roasted vegetables, beans, rice, some of the 200 types of Peruvian potatoes and sweet potatoes, including the traditional, ancient inka corn and many other dishes! Quite much of the food will be raw and all food healthy, fresh and local. We'll also use local superfoods :) and Peru has much of that!
The food will all be vegan and sattvic/ yogic ( no onions, no garlic and no mushrooms)
A vegan diet is sustainable, healthy, tasty and there are very many dishes one can make from just plants!
If you are not used to eating a vegan diet, no problem. You can also buy food in the market or many cafe's / restaurants around the area. But to eat this vegan diet for a couple of weeks have many advantages in many ways and the food is so tasty and good that you won't miss anything ~ we can say that!
Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements!
We'll do our best to accomodate people.
Looking forward to sharing with you!
