4 Reasons You Should Go to Peru in 2018

If Heaven really is a place on Earth, it’s called Peru. Otherwise known as the Kingdom of the Sun, Peru is one of South America’s most sacred locations. From the awe-inspiring Machu Picchu citadel to the breathtaking Sacred Valley, Peru offers an experience for everyone. Upon arrival, you can enjoy invigorating hikes through the Andes mountains, chilled-out days by Lake Titicaca and, best of all, yoga!

Join Powerflow Yoga and worldwide yoga retreat leader Anayra Calderon from June 23 to June 30, 2018 for the adventure of a lifetime. We think Peru speaks for itself. Let’s face it—visiting Machu Picchu is on everyone’s bucket list. But if you are on the fence, read 4 Reasons You Should Go to Peru below.

1. Peru is oozing good vibes

Machu Picchu is an ancient 15th century citadel hidden deep within the Andes mountains. It’s so well-hidden that it was largely forgotten about until the early 20th century. So the original stone walls that form these ancient Incan temples are largely unscathed. You will explore the most magnificent landscapes and view your surroundings through the lens of one of South America’s oldest cultures. As you hike Peru’s many valleys, you will find connection in the purest sense to nature, spirit and self. Practicing yoga and meditation in the Andes mountains is an experience like no other. They say that when you practice yoga at high altitudes, you are that much closer to your High Self. At the top of Machu Picchu, with the sun on your face and wind at your back, you will soak up plenty of good, healthy vibes.

2. Traveling is exciting

Want to know the secret to enduring a cold and dreary winter? Plan a summer vacation! When you plant the seeds of adventure early, you give yourself something to eagerly anticipate. As the winter nights get long and dark, you will rest well knowing that excitement and wonder awaits you come summer. Few things will warm your heart quicker than your sheer enthusiasm to travel. Book this adventure to infuse your daily routine with purpose.

3. Recharge your mind and body

When you travel, your sense of home evolves. You learn to recharge the batteries that fuel your curiosity and sense of adventure. On vacation, you walk down a street simply because it catches your eye a certain way. You gradually expand your comfort zone each day that you are on vacation. You explore cities and mountains and live like a kid again: full of wonder. We all need to recharge our minds and bodies. When you come back home, you feel renewed and ready to take on the world.

4. Your friends will be there

Come to Peru to hang out with your friends you haven’t met yet. When you travel, you meet people from different places around the world. Your relationship begins as strangers, but 1 week later you’ll be sad to leave them when you go home. You will practice yoga together, share a few meals and high-five each other when you hike to the top of Machu Picchu. On this retreat, you will form a network of souls, across thousands of miles and dozens of cities, that you can call your tribe.
