DSC 0179.160753Greetings from Arequipa, Peru! It has been two full months of residing here, and the family is feeling settled. The climate is warm and pleasant and the relaxed Peruvian culture is upon us. I love the music, food, language and people. It feels strangely natural to be here, even with the new pattern of things. Although time hasn’t slowed for me yet, there is promise of it sometime over the next couple of years. Focused on learning Spanish and spending more time with my daughter, I’m feeling a sense of contentment. How wonderful if I could formally share the practice of yoga in this country!? How do I plan to do this? Please see below for a Spiritual Journey to Peru 2014 group tour!

It would be amazing to see you here. In the meantime, I hope you are getting creative with your yoga involvement and expanding to new horizons.

Virtual smiles and blessings,

Lori Charko

DSC 0289.110127With the desire of sharing yoga in this amazing country of Peru, I am putting together a private tour to bring yoga students from Canada here to South America. Yes, YOU can experience the special vibe and energy in Peru in 2014! Consider joining my husband and I for A Spiritual Journey this time next year by first checking out the preliminary itinerary. We would love to be the ones to show you the culture, the food, the people and a plenitude of landscapes. Experience Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu, Urubamba and more by checking out this 13 night preliminary itinerary. If you have been planning to come to Peru and feel now is the time, you can get started by completing the Student Interest and Health History forms at the bottom of the website Workshop page today.

Green Tip

BottledWater.152733Do you cringe at the sight of these plastic bottles? Here’s what you can do to help lower the consumption of plastics:

1. Reduce the amount of plastic used in your household.

2. Reuse your plastics as much as you can first, before recycling.

3. Clean the products and place them in the appropriate recycle bins based on numbers codes 1 to 7.

4. Note: Not all types of plastics will be collected in your area, so get creative with the materials that can’t be picked up! It could just mean a monthly trip to the local Recycle Depot.

Learn more about the process of recycling plastics with this short video and search the internet to see what you can do to eliminate these waste products in your community.
