About My Retreat


Our award-winning partner hotel, offers a beautiful, relaxed and comfortable atmosphere featuring high quality imported sheets, Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, and modern bathrooms with steaming hot showers. There is a beautiful flower garden, a Jacuzzi (weather permitting), and a rooftop deck with a 360 degree view of this ancient Incan village.

More importantly, we partner with hotels and guides who make an effort to create the type of vibe you want to experience while on a yoga retreat in an exciting foreign destination like Machu Picchu's Sacred Valley. We partner with KB Tambo hotel because their staff take a genuine interest in our guests, where we are from, any needs we have, and they are always available to give local tips and advice. They are travelers at heart, and are famous for saying, "We are just returning the hospitality that is shown to us when we travel."




This cooperative yoga retreat works between yoga instructors, local transportation companies, local farmers markets and restaurants, expert guides, and Lonely Planet's top pick hotel, KB Tambo, in the "Living Incan City" of Ollantaytambo.

The retreat allows for plenty of relaxation and yoga, while also offering an array of optional adventures, views of mountain glaciers, waterfalls, herds of llamas, and opportunities to interact with local culture–and don't forget the unlimited Incan ruins, including perhaps the most iconic ruins in the world: Machu Picchu.

This is the trip of a lifetime!
