Your Training Location
Located just above the city of Cusco in one of the strongest energetic regions on earth, surrounded by quiet yet powerful ruins and temples, stunning views and hidden waterfalls. With its mission to raise collective vibration through how we live our lives, Pachānanda is a living example of the life work of its founder, Niki Coate.
It is the full-time home of Niki and her family, including her husband, 4-year-old son, and two dogs. Through this unique experience, they welcome you into their home and sanctuary. You can expect glorious meditation time in the temple alongside snuggles with muddy-pawed doggies, majestic views of Cusco and the surrounding sacred mountains and giggles and toys in the dining hall.

Arriving and Start time
You can arrive at Pachānanda Retreat Center for check-in from 9am on opening day. Opening circle and orientation will start at 11am. Lunch and dinner will be provided.
Note: It’s a very good idea to arrive to Cusco at least a few days before the training begins, to adjust to the altitude and energy. If Possible, arrive a week beforehand.We also suggest having some free time after the training, before travel or work, since the training is quite intensive.
Guidelines during the training
Be on your mat at least 5 minutes before each class is scheduled to start. We need to begin on time to respect everyone’s time.
We maintain a vegan, yogic diet during the training; no recreation drugs and no alcohol. We eat in a mindful, meditative way.
