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.

How to Get to Pachānda

Please book your flight to arrive at Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (CUZ). We can arrange a pick up from the airport for you with our trusted driver for an additional cost of 40 Soles (please pay directly to the driver).

Your stay in Cusco before or after the training

You are welcome to stay in one of our rooms (private or shared) in the “Healing House Cusco”, located in the historical center of Cusco (San Blas). To reserve your room please contact us via email: ytt@pachanandacusco.com

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.
