The retreat center’s name translates as “love from the ancient forest.” It is nestled in an oasis of native plants and fruit trees, nourished by a magnificent waterfall in the Sacred Valley of Peru. This lovely spot is in the Andes Mountains and home of the twelve mountains known as Apus—“luminous beings.” Those who come to the center have the opportunity to commune directly with these mountains, as well as with the local curanderos and pacos (healers), who engage with us for ritual and Despacho ceremony.
The guests at this center enjoy delicious meals with locally-grown and lovingly-prepared ingredients. Each guestroom is a reflection of the Peruvian culture of the Sacred Valley. The entire center embodies kindness, love, and wholeness that seem to permeate the magical place.
Heidi is a native of Arizona and a practicing psychologist. She is a 200-hour RYT and Yoga Alliance member and is currently working on her 500-hour certification through My Vinyasa Practice in Austin, TX. Her love of yoga began with her desire to include bodywork in her psychology practice as a trauma therapist. She strongly believes in the power of the mind-body connection and uses yoga philosophy in her own emotional health regimen. Heidi enjoys incorporating mental health topics into yoga practice by including elements of mindfulness, self-compassion, emotion regulation, self-love, and self-acceptance into her classes. She is the author of the highly rated book, The Path to Self-Love and World Domination. Follow her on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter on the handle @drheidigreen.
