The leadership coaching is the core of the program and is designed to empower you to create alignment and balance in all areas of your life. With the support of your coaches, you will access clarity on what you truly desire in life, clear what is no longer aligned for you, and become a powerful creator for yourself and the people you love. The leadership coaching is facilitated via group and individual video calls.

The Graduation Retreat

Integrate, celebrate and graduate your ALIGN Leadership Program with an extraordinary adventure that will create memories for a lifetime: Trek to Machu Picchu in Peru!

The Journey Begins

Your 9-day Graduation Retreat begins in Cusco, Peru. You will be warmly welcomed at our boutique hotel where you will meet your ALIGN coaches and team in person for the first time! Once everyone has settled in at the hotel, you will begin reflecting on your transformational journey of ALIGN from the last 6 months. The next day, you will meet your trek guides for a briefing and gear check to get ready for the trail.

Trek to Machu Picchu

On the third day of our Retreat, we will begin our 6-day trek to Machu Picchu via the Salkantay Trek and Inca Trail. Our route combines the best of these two world-famous trails, guided by ethical guiding company ENIGMA. On our way, we will cross high mountain passes and visit ancient sites while you get to connect deeply with your team mates as we edge closer to the Sun Gate of Machu Picchu.

The Next Phase

After spending time fully soaking in and exploring at Machu Picchu, we will make our way back to our hotel in Cusco. During your final day of our retreat, we focus on integrating the experience of the trek and the entire ALIGN Program, as well as preparing you to step into the next phase of your leadership journey when you land back home to your family and community. This is only just the beginning!

What our Graduates say


“I would recommend this program to anybody who is looking for something more, anybody who is looking to do something different. Too often, we miss the spiritual component and the human component of living our lives. ALIGN will help set you up to see that there are more than just materialistic things in life, that there is something greater than yourself worth living and going after.”
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.
“My life got brighter and brighter the further I moved along in the program. Now that I’ve completed ALIGN, I am living my life everyday with intention. It’s been a beautiful experience, I can’t really find the words to describe it. It’s just something deep inside of my belly that I have never felt before, so that’s how I know that it’s real. ALIGN has given me so much insight into not only who I am, but who I am becoming.”
“Jamin and Jen are inspirational. They are attentive. They love what they do. They love serving people. They love helping people through things. Throughout the course of the program, I let my walls down and they were there to hold me and support me in whatever I was going through. They’re two extraordinary individuals who are doing extraordinary things across the globe. I cannot say enough good things about them. “


“I now have a more balanced approach to everything I do than I ever had. That brings a certain calmness as a leader. When I show up, I show up in a different mindset. It allows me to be able to deliver and drive at a very high level, and really be proud of my accomplishments. It’s not always about focusing on the next thing. It’s about being able to accomplish and appreciate it, and be proud of it.”
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.
“I called Jamin up and said “I’m so busy, I don’t have time for new friends.”. Wow, was I wrong! What I really needed was to open up. I couldn’t have done it without the support of these team members. They’re all so inspiring. It’s the only time I have been in a group of human beings that have been so open, honest, caring, and we feel for each other. We want to help each other. It’s the group that made it. We were very blessed with an unbelievable group.”
“What’s interesting about my relationship with the leadership program is that it’s not what I expected, but it’s actually everything I needed. What I realized once I got into the program is to be that powerful leader, there is a certain focus on oneself that you have to take into account. This has really been the first time I have ever really focused on myself. Having completed the program and understanding what living in alignment is like for me now, I have a new toolset. ALIGN has given me the power to take ownership. To execute and to manage very, very difficult situations and conversations, and come out on the other end feeling very confident and dignified.”


” I would recommend this program to anybody who has already done some amount of inner work. Who are already on the path of discovering themselves. Who are looking for a new adventure. Who want to be exposed to a new community. Who want to be part of a community. Who want to have a challenge in life and are willing to go further. Willing to dig deeper and rediscover themselves.”
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.
“Living in alignment means to have the courage to pursue my dreams. It means to be honest with myself, understand my deepest desires and respect them. To look fearlessly into the future and trust my intuition. And to believe that everything and anything is possible. As a society we are all longing for love and acceptance. Pretty often we focus on what we don’t have. What I have learned with this program is if we really put my focus on the future, into our goals, and if we allow ourselves to be part of the bigger and broader community, we can heal anything and we can build the life that we all desire.”
“It’s hard to underestimate, to do something so big together with many talented and inspiring leaders. It changed everything. If you surround yourself with the right people, the sky’s the limit.”


“Through the ALIGN Leadership Program, I was able to take a look at my life, to focus on the things that were most valuable and important. Many of us came into this program not exactly sure what we are looking for, but I can honestly tell you that the transformations, the growth, the development and what comes out of this program is like nothing I have seen before.”
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.
“My life before the ALIGN Leadership Program was very out of balance. I didn’t realize how much my life was out of alignment. I was working three different jobs, working all the time. Being successful has always been important to me and I love what I do, so I didn’t realize the fact that it was taking so much out of me.”
“Jamin and Jen get us to open up and bring us out of our shells. We are able to see things in ourselves that could remain dormant if it wasn’t for the right questions. They are wise beyond their years. They do a great job of bringing exceptional people together, from all walks of life.”

Join us!


There are 3 steps to join the Machu Picchu 2024 Edition:


Click on "Inquire Now", fill out the short form and choose a time for your Introduction Call with one of our leadership coaches.


In your Introduction Call, you will get to know one of the ALIGN Leadership Coaches and have all your questions answered.


If your participation in the program is aligned for you and for us, you will be invited to register. Congratulations!


Here are the main ways that ALIGN is different and distinct from most other programs:
(1) A holistic approach to leadership – ALIGN includes not only group and individual leadership coaching, but also fitness and nutrition coaching. We believe we need more leaders who do well and are well. In addition, we teach an approach to Alignment that can be applied to all areas of life.
(2) An extraordinary community – Inside ALIGN, you get connected to a group of outstanding leaders from all walks of life. Even (and especially!) people who were initially apprehensive about the group aspect of the program, have graduated saying that this was one of their favorite parts of the program.
(3) The most epic graduation! – You get to celebrate your graduation trekking to Machu Picchu in Peru! Do we need to say more?

A big part of what makes ALIGN special is the intimacy of the group, and the deep connection created between participants. In addition to the group coaching, ALIGN also involves high-touch, tailored 1:1 coaching from your leadership, fitness and nutrition coaches. This is why we limit the number of participants to a maximum of 15 per program.

We care about who you are and are inspired to be in the world much more than your current job title. This is why we say ALIGN is for ‘entrepreneurs, executives and leaders’. If you are a leader in life, have big aspirations, and everything about ALIGN lights you up, then, yes, absolutely apply!

ALIGN is about self-leadership in every area of life. The program is very holistic in its approach, and everything we teach about alignment can be applied and translate to all personal and professional areas of life.
Regardless of whether you choose to work on specific work-related themes in your individual coaching or more personal things – we consistently see our Members become more powerful leaders who can guide themselves and their teams through even the most challenging situations and navigate whatever life throws at them with grace and confidence.

Absolutely! In fact, many of our Members have families or are single parents. From our experience, people in this circumstance often have a harder time justifying this kind of investment of financial and time resources into themselves – and every Member who does, we see the most remarkable transformations in who they are becoming for themselves and their families. It’s one of the most special parts of our work.
As long as you can organize to be mostly undisturbed for your coaching sessions and are able to be fully present for the Graduation Retreat, you are good to go!

Across the different types of coaching (group, individual, fitness), you will have on average two hours of calls each week, plus one more hour for homework. The beauty of ALIGN is that the majority of the leadership coaching homework will happen directly in your life, not in addition to everything you are already committed to.
This does not include your fitness training, which will vary person to person, depending on your goals.

If you can’t be present for the dates of the virtual launch weekend (December 2 and 3), inquire anyways and we can speak through the options in your Introduction Session.
If you cannot be fully present in Peru for the Graduation Retreat in May, you are unfortunately not able to participate in this edition of ALIGN. We recommend you sign up for our newsletter to find out about our upcoming programs.

Yes! While most of our ALIGN Members are from the US, we also have Graduates in Australia, Europe and the UAE.
Please make sure you indicate your time zone in your application so that we can speak through possible implications on group call scheduling and discuss availabilities with you.

Of course! And – It is important that every individual chooses ALIGN for themselves first, not because someone else is doing it. This program requires everyone to be fully in and fully committed.
We also encourage you to ask yourself whether you will be able to open up fully with someone you already know as part of the team. If that’s a YES, this can be a beautiful opportunity to go through a life-changing six-month adventure together with your partner or friend and strengthen your bond.
If there are two or more of you who would like to join, mention this is in your application and ask us for a special bonus!

All coaching sessions are hosted via Zoom. You can schedule your individual coaching sessions at a time that is convenient for you. The standing time for group coaching sessions will be determined together with the whole group prior to program start to ensure we have a time when everyone can participate.

The investment for the ALIGN Leadership Program is between $18k and $25k USD. We will share all details with you in your Introduction Session.

Wherever your fitness is at the start of your ALIGN Leadership Program, your fitness coach will support you to have the required level of fitness by the time we get to Peru. This means your commitment to following the plan and being coachable is more important than your fitness level right now.
While the hike to Machu Picchu involves several hours of hiking every day, it is well doable with good general health and fitness and requires no technical skills. Altitude affects everyone differently and you might experience temporary altitude sickness symptoms when we move towards our maximum altitude of 15,200ft on the Salkantay Pass, yet this should subside as soon as we descend.
If you have any injuries that might prevent you from being able to hike for several hours each day, send us a message and we can speak through your individual circumstances.

As our Members have said over and over – The Graduation is only the beginning! After your Retreat, we have one individual and one group Completion Session, which formally completes your ALIGN Leadership Program.
Thereafter, we offer you three months of complimentary integration coaching support through monthly Integration Coaching Sessions. We also welcome you into our growing community of extraordinary Graduates from all over the world and you will be invited to exclusive Graduate opportunities.

If your questions are simple and of a logistical nature, send us an email to [email protected].
If you would like to discuss your individual situation and ask more detailed questions, complete an application and we will answer them in your Program Alignment Call.
