Whether you are an experienced meditator or experiencing meditation for the first time, we hope that this retreat will allow you to sit with your thoughts in a different way.

Nancy and Caroline, have just completed a year- long training, to learn to teach Shyam Dyan meditation, which is a Oneness meditation. Focusing your attention on either your breath or Mantra, you begin to watch your thoughts. This is a way to step
On each adventure retreat with Insight Eco Tours, whether in the Sacred Valley of Peru or the cloud forest of Costa Rica or the verdant hills of the Azores, our yoga connects us to our breath and body and the land on which we stand. Our yoga practice on retreat is a way to step back from our thinking mind and everyday life.
Nancy believes that Asana practice is a powerful way to see our mind more clearly and open our hearts more deeply. Baring witness to our strengths and weaknesses, WITHOUT JUDGEMENT helps us better understand who we are and how we interact with the world around us.
Each day offers 2 yoga practices.
Morning practice is a warm vinyasa flow, focusing on breath and alignment. This practice awakens the body, developing strength and balance in body & mind-leaving us open to heal, revitalize and enlighten. Practice is accessible to all levels of experience.
Our afternoon-evening practices are of a more restorative nature, offering longer holds and deep opening. These practices can unlock deep rooted and dormant emotions. This is a terrific practice to unload the baggage of the past. Evening practice will often end with a meditation.
On any free afternoon you are invited to sign up with Nancy for a private Alignment hour. This is an opportunity for you to learn the ins and outs of your body opening up the energetic pathways,

Sacred Valley, Peru
away from the chatter that often crowds the mind. When you sit down to meditate the first thing you
do is settle. Settling means coming into a space to meditate and allowing yourself to be completely as you are. All you need is you. You simply begin. You start where you are and as you discover, meditation
is about letting the world in and awakening to your life.
Each day there will be meditations and instruction offered. Some will be a seated practice, some will be silent walking meditations, some will be guided meditations. Private consultations and guidance will also be available.
Please come and experience the stillness and sacred within you.
"When your attention moves in the NOW, there is an alertness. It is as if you are
waking up form a dream, the dream of thought, the dream of past and future.
Such clarity, such simplicity. No room for problem-making.
Just this moment as it is."
