PACHAMAMA: YOGA ADVENTURE AND TREK TO PERU

Cusco, Machu Picchu, and Pisac, Peru


Calling all modern warriors: experience the wonders of the ancient and mystical land of Peru.

Are you looking for a higher guiding principle, or are you looking to embody spiritual practices in these modern times while balancing community, business and family? Get ready for an epic spiritual adventure that will take your day to day life to the next level!

Join international teachers Mike Ninomiya and Patrick Harrington on this 9-day journey as you trek along the infamous Inca trail to the magical ruins of Machu Picchu.

Mike and Patrick will guide you in a safe and supporting environment through the principles of yoga, martial arts, meditation, energy, and group work, so that you can realize the higher self that you are meant to be.

Surrounded by the Andean mountains, the Sacred Valley is an ideal and energetically conducive setting for personal transformation and growth. We arrive first in the ancient city of Cusco, the culturally rich hub of activity, where Incan majesty and Andean baroque exist side by side on cobbled stone streets. We then embark on a 4-day trek along the infamous Inca Trail. We finish the trip in quaint Pisac, the picturesque village that has Incan ruins and a traditional Quechua market amidst the majestic Andes mountains. This all-inclusive experience combines the traditional customs, foods and shamanic rituals of Peru, with a modern-day spiritual quest.

About Your Instructors


Patrick Harrington

Patrick Harrington, ERYT-200

Patrick Harrington is living a life that inspires him. A former serial entrepreneur, Patrick once started businesses he thought would earn him enough money to live a life full of meaning and difference making. He was always searching for the means to an end. It wasn't until yoga teacher training in 2001 that he found a way to combine his love of business with an end in itself. 

14 years later, Patrick is the founder-owner of Kindness Yoga, a donation-based collection of studios that hosts scores of teachers and tens of thousands of yoga students annually. 

Patrick is the father of two girls and a husband. His life has taken on more and more meaning through his committed explorations into his own patterns of - and addictions to - suffering. His classes reflect this intimate and vulnerable process, and allow his students and fellow teachers to relate on a level that transforms. It is though his own healing journey and movement towards living his dharma that leads his yoga teaching, parenting, relationships and business. 

Patrick has taught before tens of thousands of students, lead teacher trainings and mentored teachers over many years as the owner of Kindness Yoga. “We - as yoga studios and teachers - are not in competition with each other,” he says. “Rather, we are in competition with all the unconscious activities out there." Patrick believes that yoga will direct culture towards a more awakened strategy of life. He encourages us to wake up to what we want to contribute in this life and "quit messing around and get on with it!"
