About this trip

Join us in the Sacred Valley of Peru where we will re-awaken and cleanse our bodies and soul through movement, sound healing, meditation, yoga, and partake in a spiritual ritual that promotes health, well-being and prosperity performed by a local Shaman. 


We will submerge ourselves into the heart and culture of Peru through locally sourced meals, bonfires, and hiking high in the Andes Mountains to visit the ancient mountain, Machu Picchu.


Trust the timing of your life, trust that this is your calling and we will meet you there!

Meet Your Retreat Leader

Alexzandra Peters is a spiritual leader, Reiki & Thai Yoga Massage Practitioner and a 200hr certified Yoga instructor who dives into the depths of self-freedom and soul awakening through her teachings.


Filled with anxiety, depression, and turning to substance abuse, Alexzandra found Yoga at a perfect time in her life. Through her practice she found her way back to herself and picked up the broken pieces. Immediately she knew that she wanted to help guide others home to themselves and help create a space for her students to honor who they are. Alexzandra’s teachings are emotional with emphasis on bringing your sh!t  to the mat and working through it in your body and breath, rather than leaving it all at the door, as well as having fun. Her style is unique, fun, and challenging. In her classes, expect to work, sweat, play, laugh and grow and leave with a deeper understanding, connection and love for your Self.

Location

In the middle of a natural environment in the Sacred Valley of Peru, surrounded by mountain and ancient culture that today maintain their traditions, grows Samadhi.


Designed with the sacred geometry, Samadhi will submerge you in the universe of the los Chakras, walking through the Kundalini and wrapping you in its spaces, colors, textures, flavors and art adapted for the energy central, to know and explore your essence.


Samadhi's facilities are fully-equipped, and centered on the theme of the 7 chakras: areas dedicated to meditation and art, a multifunction room, a yoga deck with a dazzling view of the sacred valley, an organic garden where you can learn about the qualities of plants that are native to the area, and around the Andes Mountains.


Each of the bungalows have three separate beds with a private bathroom. 

If you're booking with a friend or partner, please indicate their name on the booking form so we could arrange it accordingly.

This trip is one of my all time favorites. Kelly did an amazing job! Love her yoga. Samadhi Sacred Valley is the most beautiful and stunning place. The food was amazing. The retreat was a perfect balance of yoga, exploration and socialization. My hopes are that I'm able to do another retreat with Kelly in the future.
The experience was unbelievable! If you are looking for a yoga retreat, look no further. It had everything-- fantastic food, the right amount of local culture mixed with a great balance of yoga and rest. It was exhilarating, rewarding and rejuvenating. Sign up right away, you won't regret it
I had the most amazing time with Chelsea and Adzenture Retreats, every little detail was thought about so that myself and everyone else on the retreat had the most memorable, magical experience. This trip was life changing for me and the perfect way to experience and explore Peru as a solo traveler. I couldn’t recommend Adzenture Retreats enough.

Amongst the Scared Valley Mountains I was able to connect deeply with myself and nurture beautiful lifelong friendships. I am so grateful I made the decision to go on this retreat and journey back to myself beneath the Peruvian sky. The physical space was incredible and the Sacred Valley Mountains were breathtaking to say the least. Each and every one of us was spiritually served with respect, love, kindness, and humble hospitality by the staff and owners at the resort and Adzenture Retreats. Each meal was made with intention using ingredients from their own garden and local farms, and each villa was tended to with care and thought. Every aspect of the retreat was planned with intention, aligning each adventure or activity with the retreat theme – it was magical. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience: salsa dancing, market wandering, Macchu Picchu gazing, Rainbow Mountain hiking, quiet bonfires, and endless laughter with new sisters was everything I needed. Thank you for the experience; thank you for my new, beautiful friends and family; thank you for this beautiful adventure in Perudise.
The trip was more amazing than I could ever have imagined! Azma ( Adzenture) did an unreal job of taking care of everyone but also participating and being one of us throughout the retreat which made it so genuine. The hosts of our accommodations were the most beautiful, welcoming people who obviously have made a great relationship with the company and treated us all like family. Alex was also everything you could have hoped for to lead a retreat, again, just being one of us on the journey and experiencing the beauty of Peru alongside us. I can't wait until I'm able to book another trip with adzenture. I didn't ever want to leave this one!
