six day Gathering of learning, healing and exchange in the Sacred Valley, Peru
at the Ashram Valle Sagrado
evening kirtans and sacred ceremonies
hike along Inca mountain paths
sunrise meditation at the temple of Huchuy Qosqo
stay overnight at an Andean lodge
Organised by the Kundalini Yoga Collective from London, Nadi Gathering aims to bring people together to share a journey of activation and healing, and to learn from each other and from the surroundings.
In September 2018 we return to the Ashram Valle Sagrado deep in the mountains of Peru’s Sacred Valley for a third time to continue our journey of harmonisation with nature and the ancient energies of the valley. We invite you to spend time together celebrating and nurturing connections in this powerful and magical setting.
The event is based in the Kundalini Yoga tradition and we also invite and integrate a variety of other practices and teachings including wisdom from Andean elders.
We hold yoga classes, workshops, sound healing, ceremonies, art, music, discussions, one to one sessions and sharing circles. We also welcome local shamans and groups to the Gathering who teach us about their sacred rituals.
The week-long Gathering includes a visit to two local sites and a hike to the temple of Huchuy Qosqo with an overnight stay with local farmers in an Andean lodge and a sunrise meditation ceremony at the ancient site.
We aim to create space and time for co-creation and we encourage you to bring something from your personal practice to share with the group.
Our focus for the 2018 Gathering is ~ Trusting Your Life
Like the flower gives a fragrance, give yourself a chance, just a chance, to trust yourself, love yourself, and be yourself. Now close your eyes, raise your right hand, place your left hand on your heart, and take a vow, repeating 3 times: I trust myself, I love myself, I am myself. —Yogi Bhajan

Preetam Kaur aka Kary founded the Kundalini Yoga Collective with a fellow student, starting with donation-based classes in a local park. She is Peruvian by birth and British by upbringing and Nadi Gathering was a vision born out of her own quest to connect with her ancestral land. Strengthened and inspired by the heart opening and deeply transformative experiences with the group during the first and second Nadi Gatherings she hopes to continue to entice others to come to experience the magic too!
Martin Haas is the co-founder of the Collective.
“My aim is to guide the students towards a calm and focused mind, a knowledge of the self and a rejuvenated body. I believe that in order to claim residency in our soul we need to first make our busy mind a servant, and also maintain our body so it can carry us to our destiny.”

Nāḍī (Sanskrit नाडी nāḍī = tube, pipe; Tamili/ˈ/naadi) நாடி = nerve, blood vessel, pulse: pronounced with long vowel sounds and a retroflex ‘d’) is a term for the channels through which, in traditional Indian medicine and spiritual science, the energies of the physical body, the subtle body and the causal body are said to flow. Within this philosophical framework, the nadis are said to connect at special points of intensity called nadi chakras.
