Munay Sonqo Retreat and Yoga Center is the premier yoga and transformational retreat center in the Sacred Valley, Peru.
Munay Sonqo provides an epic setting to all who are aspiring to spiritual transformation, personal development, and connection to the natural world. Nestled in an oasis of native plants and fruit trees and held by the power of the surrounding mountains, Munay Sonqo offers a place to connect to the incredible depth and beauty that nature offers, supporting your retreats, trainings and workshops to be a profoundly nurturing and unforgettable experience.
Munay Sonqo means ‘Loving Heart’ in Quechua, the language of the Incas and the inhabitants of The Sacred Valley of Peru, where we are located. The Sacred Valley is a majestic spot in the Andes Mountains close to Cusco and home of the twelve revered mountains known as “Apus” — Mountain Spirits who are said to intercede on behalf of people in protection and guidance. Those who come to our center have the opportunity to commune directly with these mountains, as well as with the local curanderos and pacos (healers), who engage with us for traditional earth honring and gratitude ceremony called Despacho.
We have a heart-felt mission to create a nourishing environment for healing, learning, regeneration and expansion. To this end, retreats we host programs range from yoga, meditation and other practices; to personal healing and reflection; Womens and Mens work, to practical workshops on Permaculture. Our guests at Munay Sonqo Retreat and Yoga Center are served delicious meals with locally-grown and lovingly prepared ingredients, many of which come from our organic farm. Each guest room is a reflection of the Peruvian culture of the Sacred Valley, and built with local and natural materials. Thanks to our staff, the entire center embodies the kindness, love and wholeness that permeates this magical place.
Our center consists of three distinct campuses, Munay Sonqo Mesa, Sach’a Munay Jardin and our latest addition the Santuario. Please read about these spaces under the facilities menu tab.
