Sacred Valley of Peru

Connection and Wellness Retreat

Deepen your Practice in The Sacred Valley of Peru


Indra focuses on supporting and strengthening heart-led practitioners and community leaders. We create experiences that foster community, connection, and a wider understanding of our purpose on this Earth. We come together in some of the most incredible locations in the world, cultivating an understanding, and appreciation for the land, people, and culture. We aim to support wellness practitioners to share the true essence of Yoga, inviting these practices to be more accessible to wider and more diverse circles. The Indra team is made up of deeply experienced facilitators sharing Yoga, Ayurveda, and Embodiment as a lifestyle, from a trauma-informed approach that excludes no one. We dive into African and Indian ancient studies while creating modern-day connections that inform our relationship to the breath, body, and daily action.

Munay Sonqo provides a powerful backdrop for enhanced awareness, educational study, and a deep connection to nature. The center is held by the Sacred mountains. It is rooted in ancient, fertile soil, allowing abundant fruit trees, vegetation, and native plants. Munay Sonqo means “Loving Heart” in Quechua and you will feel that in the care offered by the incredible stewards that we are honored to call family. We begin all programs with local Quechua facilitators, deeply honoring the wisdom of the land and asking permission for the work we embark upon for the next few weeks.

The center is eco-conscious, constructed using local materials, with a love for the natural, sacred landscape. Enjoy dining, studying, and relaxing in artfully crafted spaces. A stunning yoga temple with views of the Sacred mountains will be the backdrop for our work together, while lovingly tended gardens and pathways provide privacy to embody the experience.

Workshops you could join with Indra (Optional)

 Trauma-Informed Training

Deepen your understanding of how trauma affects the brain and the nervous system. Learn from 20+ year experienced therapists about how trauma lives in the body and the healing potential available through embodiment practices and breath work. Participants will understand the connection of yoga to trauma prevention and overcome. Participants will explore their beliefs around e-motions and the energy and gift of each. Participants will be introduced to their internal resources that are impacted by e-motions. Participants will understand the full-body definition of “healing” and its collective counterparts


Ayurveda is called the mother of all healing. It is considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science and sister science to Yoga. Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance. Over the course of the training, you will gain a deep understanding of Ayurveda as a lifestyle as well as techniques to take home with you to cultivate and share in your personal and professional practice.

Social and Emotional Justice 

Yoga is Social Justice. Woven into every session with Indra, we invite you to learn more about how to decolonize perspectives, make yoga for ALL bodies, dismantle racism, identify cultural appropriation and deeply support each other through the necessary work we have a responsibility to do as a community.

Meridians and Yoga

This is where we weave the philosophy together with anatomy and the practices to create a sense of awakened understanding as an advanced yoga teacher. Apply the natural rhythms and subtle energies of the five elements to your life on and off the mat.  Begin to learn about the nadis and main meridians, as a pathway for the five elements.  Learn general movements that access the meridians, how the matrix of the 12 meridians of Chinese Medicine and five elements create and influence the “energetic effects” of your practices.  Learn and apply safe acupressure points along the meridians in your practice and daily life as part of your self-care routine.

Community Leadership

Confident, skilled and knowledgeable leaders are needed to inspire, guide and foster dynamic organizations and communities. While we may be willing to give our time and talents to serve others, we must first cultivate the connections, skills and confidence to take on leadership roles. Together we will practice powerful non-violent communication skills, and further develop our personal visions as wellness entrepreneurs.

Art of Asana as Philosophy 

An exploration into the Art of Asana through Hatha, Vinyasa, Bhakti and Yin with Trauma-informed considerations woven throughout. We dive into Indian and Egyptian lineage, mythology and practices and what it means to teach an “all levels” asana class with curiosity, exploring different techniques and variations for all bodies and skill levels. The intention is to empower practitioners to support others to find their way into and out of postures through the guidance of breath using discernment (Viveka) and intuition (Vichara). We will question and examine how we can effectively and mindfully offer asana in a skillful and informed way.

Environmental Responsibility

Our goal at Indra Yoga Institute is to increase our awareness on all levels. At Indra, we dedicate time and resources to finding solutions to the environmental challenges facing us now and in the future. More science and more technology cannot get us out of our present ecologic crisis. A global awakening must take place to shift the current conscience. Through literature, poetry, dialogue, and practice, we uncover the power of yoga to connect all beings and bring about global change.

Personal Empowerment

Our ability to thrive creatively depends on the generosity we offer each other through sharing of knowledge and skills, resources and strategies. Immersion into the creative process is woven throughout the training. Within this safe and uplifting community, we will explore how to deepen and share your creative voice through art, writing, music, dance, poetry and many other forms of free expression.
