CHAKRA INSPIRED RETREAT
This seven night, eight day retreat will work to align your chakras while you enjoy the beautiful scenery of Sacred Valley, Peru. Each day will begin with a chakra balancing vinyasa yoga practice to energize you for the day. Practice will be tailored to the needs of those attending the retreat, with both advanced asana options and modifications for anyone looking to slow down. For the rest of the day you can choose whether you’d like to hike through the spacious grounds in the middle of the mountains, participate in a Peruvian cooking class or sound healing ceremony, or you could simply lounge around in one of the beautiful cabins. Every evening, a more grounding, deep flow practice will revisit the chakra of the day to help you fall asleep in a balanced state ready to work your way up the rainbow bridge the next day! Classes will focus on self reflection to determine where we are deficient or excessive in each of our chakras, so we can create more balance in each of our centres through breath work and moving meditation, nurturing the whole self. There will also be three specialized workshops on three afternoons where we will further explore the root, heart, and crown chakra in more detail using the practices of arm balances, backbends, and inversions.
Retreat Leader: Angela Morley
Ang discovered yoga in 2009 when she finally let her roommate drag her to her first class. She connected with the physical practice immediately and was overcome with acute nostalgia for her days as a gymnast. The movement came naturally; the connection of that movement with her breath and her mind was what really pulled her in. It became therapeutic; she felt lighter, more balanced, more connected. Since completing her teacher training Ang has dedicated her life to the learning and teaching of yoga. Always a student, Ang credits the depth of her practice and teaching to Grace Dubery, Audrey Gentile, Kate Gillespie, Sheldon Shannon, Amica Hilton and Juliana, and Jonny Belinko. Her good-humoured personality combined with her knowledge of human anatomy provides students with challenging classes focused on proper alignment where they can have a good time in the process. Her love of music always brings an eclectic playlist. Above all Ang hopes to bring you lightness, more balance, and connection.
THE CHAKRA INSPIRED SPACE

It’s facilities are fully-equipped, and based on the theme of the 7 chakras. There are areas dedicated to meditation and art, a multifunction room, a yoga deck with a dazzling view of the sacred valley, and even an organic garden where you can learn about the different varieties of plants native to the area.
