My experience in Peru was truly transformational. Every morning I woke up with the desire to share love with everybody around me and give a hug to the first living being I saw either a new friend, a shaman, a small child from the mountain village or a donkey. Was it because I was surrounded by people who came to Peru to learn more about themselves, meet new challenges and grow? Or was it because our leaders were so positive and inspirational? Or because of the magical energy of Peru in general? I will always cherish these memories in my heart letting them guide me through life journey…Nina... Aspen Colorado

Our trip to Peru in May was a wonderful, magical adventure. We practiced yoga in exquisite studios, in Inca ruins, by streams, on mountain passes . . . we shared experiences with local people, shamans and weavers, farmers and porters. And we discovered that all the hype about Machu Picchu was accurate. It is a stunning place . . . clouds dancing in the mountains, so many details in the structures, an incredible engineering feat. Every day in Peru ended with great memories. It was a really great trip of a lifetime! Bob and Torrie

This trip exceeded my expectations on so many levels with the time in ruins, shopping for local specialties, learning about local culture and traditions, tremendous views and vistas and outstanding hiking and camping experiences! None of this would have been possible without the expertise, ease and considerable thoughtfulness of Deborah and David - nothing was missed and everything worked so well for all of us. I have such heartfelt memories from the people, places and events of this amazing trip -- I would do this same trip all over again it was so good!!!! Francie Rawlings… Philadelphia 2014
Yoga Adventure Peru

My thoughts and feelings are ever shifting,. So I put them on paper.: Anticipation usually leads the way. What will be? Who will be there? How will it go? As hard as it was getting myself up those trails I never felt like I was doing it alone. I have always been concerned about those in the back so I have a tendency to lay back. I must say that a lack of oxygen played a small part in helping me be patient and conserve my energy. :-) Majestic "Veronica," with her beautiful snow-capped peaks, boldly pushing through the clouds, Lovely yellow lady-slippers and the ever present bromeliad clinging to it's surroundings for survival The calls of, "here come the horses," as the noble, inspired and determined animals thundered by on narrow mountain trails day after day Carrying that which was so precious to each of us. As they passed I think I heard one whisper, "step aside I have work to do.;-) At night we lay down together, the combined smell of cold, fresh air and the dung of our friends was "warming" and "grounding." In Vietnamese "dung" can mean handsome or beautiful. Works for me. ;-) The rushing of the waters as we sat or lay down, as one with what is within us all. Calling, whispering to each of us. Waking each morning to the voice of Delia asking if I wanted tea or coffee, and preparing it on the spot, at times I questioned my worthiness. Watching the young men working and playing together I am reminded again of "community," and festivity of spirit. Again the ever-looming mountains, with all their secrets, somehow protecting us. The Incans knew! Living, life-giving yoga each morning to awaken the body and soul to "potential." Finally, with a swagger, nature unfolds and brings forth it's fine linen in the form of a bright, majestic rainbow. There are no words! As I continue to grow, not old but upwards, I can still remember the feelings of childhood. Simply, that child continues to live within and remind me of who I am. Fear, anger, jealousy, restlessness, sorrow, disillusionment, humiliation are being replaced by love, empathy, confidence,optimism, jubilation. Always shifting, never constant, now I know and can participate in the "now" moment. It will shift and I am still here. Cesar, Francisco, Feliciano and Delia,
you are forever in my prayers.

Each of you has made a living impact on my life, especially my heart. I miss you already. Thank you so much Debra and David for presenting this opportunity that I will never forget. " Don't hurry, be happy!" Love you all. Looking forward, Wil
