Andean School Project

In 2015 Earth Spirit Yoga donated sun hats to the entire junior school of over 100 students of the remote Andean School with the help of our retreat participants. Earth Spirit Yoga has been supporting this school for the last nine years. We have achieved numerous donations through the generous contributions and fundraising efforts of our retreat participants and from retreat proceeds.

For a unique and deeper experience with the Andean people we have the pleasure of visiting

a traditional community. A bus journey into the Andes takes us to the Lares valley where we spend the day visiting the community school and with our adopted family.

At an altitude of 2700 m and with a population of approximately 500 people they are a community of beautiful people living in harmony with the Earth. We have the opportunity to directly support this community by donations to their school.

We donate only financially to the school as these people have traditional lifestyles close to the Earth and still craft and wear traditional dress. We make a conscious effort to minimise the impact we have as foreigners.

Usually our contributions allow the children to visit Machu Picchu which would otherwise be impossible. In 2013 we raised funds to supply new uniforms for the teachers as well. (The teachers generally wear modern clothing and asked us for tracksuit uniforms.)

They welcome us with a traditional Andean meal followed by music and dancing. Then we are invited to the home of the mayor of the community for more feasting and celebrating together.

This project was born in 2007.
After receiving so many blessings from the Peruvian people and learning about the Andean philosophy of Ayni (reciprocity), we decided our expeditions needed a way of exchanging energetically with these generous and beautiful people.

In 2008 our Earth Spirit Yoga group were the first foreigners ever to visit this Andean community. This place is especially close to our hearts as we are Godparents to quite a few of the community's children.
