PIURAY LAKE YOGA
It is time for a spiritual retreat
According to the testimonies of our past practitioners, the experience is exceptional, very relaxing and definitely becomes one of the highlights of a trip to Peru.
3720m above sea level on a Stand Up Paddle Board.
35 minutes from the city of Cusco, we offer a break from the usual tourist route, by offering you a way to experience the outdoors away from mobs in unbeatable natural settings.
In general, this session is led much like any Yoga session you might encounter. The teacher will lead the class, instructing students in the performance of the asanas. What makes this session of Yoga special, besides the beautiful place, landscape and lake conditions, is practicing over a moving surface. Such a condition offers an extra challenge for any practitioner of Yoga and can provide a truly transcendent result.
This unique experience starts early heading to Chinchero outskirts, to the outstanding Piuray Lake.
8:30 am: Pick up from your hotel in Cusco or Sacred Valley.
9:30 am: Arrival to Piuray Outdoor Center. Time to enjoy, appreciate the landscape and take lots of photos. There will be a drink and snacks station available.
10:00 am: Meeting with the guide who will provide all the necessary equipment. The guide will also organise a short briefing to inform of all safety measures and show paddling/rowing techniques. You will need to paddle for about 20 minutes to get to a quiet area of the lake where you will tie the boards one to each other in order to start with the lesson which is going to take about 45 minutes. After that, the guide will teach you some breathing techniques and, for the brave ones, there is an option for cold water immersion. The activity lasts about an hour and a half.

1:30 pm: Estimated return time.
