Creating Sacred Rituals
Sacred Valley, Peru Retreat with Jennifer Brewer
Rituals are an important tool for marking benchmarks in our maturation, connecting to something bigger than ourselves, and being part of a community. They offer some magic to the mundane.
Each day of the retreat will offer meditation, yoga, discussion and a new ritual designed around a different theme. Leave with a new perspective on how to make your asana practice more meaningful and begin to create and practice your own rituals bridging your humanness to the sacredness inside.
A variety of classes will be offered daily including restorative, vinyasa and hatha. You can pick and choose which style class or classes you would like to include in your daily ritual.

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 guest-room 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.
Jennifer is an E-RYT500 yoga instructor on Hilton Head Island, SC where she teaches both group classes and private clients. Her favorite ways to lead yoga are outside where you can truly ground into the earth and reach to the sky, and chair yoga which makes yoga accessible to all. Jennifer began her yoga journey after accepting that depression and anger were taking over. Yoga gave her the awareness and power of choice and she uses her sense of humor to open up this awareness to others.

Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip.
