WHAT'S INCLUDED?
INCLUDED:
PROFESSIONAL GUIDES • All of our guides speak fluent English/Spanish and studied tourism at the National University of Cusco. They all grew up in this region and love sharing their knowledge of history and culture with our guests. They're professional and enjoy providing a safe and enjoyable experience.
PERMITS • The first step after placing your deposit is to secure all of your entrance permits. Throughout the year, especially during the busy season, this is the most important step in trip preparations. These permits are individually issued for a specific date and for a specific traveler. Once confirmed, they cannot be changed. We can update passport numbers, but at a fee of $50 per traveler.
GROUND TRANSPORTATION • From the moment you arrive in Peru until your international departure, all of your ground transportation is included in this tour package. Your private transfers, buses, and trains are all included. When we pick you up our representatives will always have a sign with our name and your name on it.
*As a default, your itinerary includes Vistadome Class train service on Perurail and/or Executive Class train service with IncaRail.

HUAYNA PICCHU / MONTAÑA • The world-famous Huayna Picchu hike is limited to 400 hikers per day. Depending on availability, we secure this permit for all guests. If Huayna Picchu is sold out we include the Machu Picchu Montaña hiking permits. This hike is a little bit longer than Huayna Picchu (some would say it is better) and is a great option to experience original Inca trail.
24 / 7 / 365 TRIP SUPPORT • For the planning stages, and during your trip, we provide 24/7 customer service to assist with any of your questions or issues.

NOT INCLUDED:
FLIGHTS • Coordinating international and domestic flights can be tricky. During this tour package you will need to secure 2 round-trip flights in Peru (LIM-IQT-LIM and LIM-CUZ-LIM). Our Peru Travel Experts will walk you through this entire process and recommend the exact flight itineraries you need to take for your trip. Delays and cancellations are common in Peru so we recommend that you book with the most reliable airline: LATAM. You can also work with Peruvian Airlines, Star Peru, LCP Peru, and Avianca. If you would prefer that we purchase flights for you, we charge a $50 booking fee per R/T domestic flight booked and a $100 booking fee per R/T international flight booked.
GRATUITIES • Tipping is always appreciated and should be based completely on your satisfaction. Although it may not be customary to you, it is of considerable significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels.

I Can Meditate! Beginner's Workshop

Meditation is the art of looking inside and discovering one’s own inner being. Meditation leads us not only to totally new inner experiences, but helps us also to transform our day-to-day life into a better, more meaningful and more fulfilling existence.

Join Ahoo in this workshop, where we will begin our discussion on what meditation is and common misconceptions of what meditation is not. We will explore different styles of meditation and their applicability. We will then move into a slow moving, stretching practice, sustaining postures, as we move deeper from the outer experience into an inner experience. This primes the mind and body for a 20 minute silent meditation sit, followed with a final integration and discussion. 

This workshop is based on a School of Kripalu method of yoga and meditation, learning to Ride the Waves of Sensation, as we lean into Focusing, Flowing and Letting Go. 

Ahoo has trained extensively in transformational meditation and mindfulness based stress reduction with senior instructors at the Kripalu School of Yoga and Ayurveda. Her focus is in the transformational abilities meditation brings to the art of yoga, it's ability to reduce stress and dissolve negative patterns and habits for a liberated state of being.

This workshop will fill. Sign up HERE

Drumming and Yoga - Rhythm and Body

Korsi Yoga and Danny Stern are merging the transformational fires of yoga with the vibrational resonance of drumming and percussion, connecting body, mind and spirit, healing the inner most parts of our beings.

We will start the practice with a 45 minute all levels heated flow, enhanced by the rhythm of live drums, to prime the body for the meditative art of drumming. 

This will be followed by a lesson in song and drumming by Danny. We will learn a basic beat for us all to follow. Then we start the drumming session. 

Drumming and yoga form a natural partnership. The vibrating resonance of the drum seems to pull the practioner deeper into the practice. The drummer moves energy into space while the yogini moves energy though the body. 

All levels in yoga and drumming are welcomed and encouraged! If you have your own drum, bring it along! And, we will have extra drums for everyone. 

$15 for the drumming session only. $20 for both events.

You will learn assisted yoga postures, stretches and techniques you can easily practice again, and again, with anyone at home.

With a backdrop of soft music and healing Thai aromas, the afternoon will begin with a short and simple flow to warm the body, then ease into the experience of partner Thai Yoga through observation, demonstration, and practice!

Each partner pair will need one mat and one pillow. Wear clothing you can move comfortably in. This workshop is appropriate for any level of knowledge or experience. Some yoga experience is helpful, but is not necessary. Please bring your friend/partner to this workshop.

Thai Yoga Bodywork is a blend of assisted stretching with therapeutic massage techniques. The treatment is given over comfortable clothing while the recipient relaxes on a floor mat. It shares an ancient lineage with yoga and Ayurveda, with influences from Chinese medicine and other traditional healing modalities.

Scott Houston & Ecstatic Dance Atlanta are teaming up with Korsi Hot Yoga and bringing the good dancing juju north of Atlanta to celebrate and dance our way into the dog days of Summer!

This is all about getting great exercise, freeing your mind, connecting with yourself & your community in a safe & sacred container.

If you just want to DANCE and move freely, this is the place for you. The fearlessness with which others leap, roll, strut, and be themselves gives you permission and courage to dance YOUR dance without any judgment.

To maintain the container for movement and free expression we ask that you follow these guidelines:

* No talking on the dance floor. 
* Scent-Free, Drug-Free, Smoke-Free, Alcohol-Free Environment
* No Photos or Videos, Cellphones quiet and out of sight
* Respect the space and each other
* Dance however you wish
* Dance alone or with as many partners as you like--If you'd rather not dance with someone, thank them by placing your hands in prayer at your heart.

At the beginning of the dance, between 730p-8:00p, there will be a short warm-up and opening circle, so please be on time :) At the end of each session, we convene in a communal closing circle for a brief sharing of experiences.

Korsi is a HOT YOGA studio so come prepared to SWEAT ;) That being said -- What do I bring?!

1. Loose-fitting clothes that allow for free movement
2. Water to keep yourself hydrated
3. A towel or extra shirts :)
