I have just returned from a 10-day trip to Peru with a yoga group, which included a magical 5 day stay at Willka T'ika. I will simply join in and echo what so many other reviewers have said. Carol and her incredibly wonderful, caring staff partners have created, almost by miracle, a place that truly seems blessed. Healing gardens that intoxicate the senses and calm the soul. Beautiful rooms in buildings that blend right into the landscape. Special places for music, yoga, and quiet contemplation. The cozy comfort of the lounge with always-fresh herbs for making tea, beautifully presented, and the delicious, healthy meals. Don't miss taking a solar bath at night--gazing at the night skies in a fragrant, hot water bath in the garden. And just be sure to spend lots of time in the chakra gardens.
Imagine a fully-inclusive Journey to Machu Picchu amid the pure energies of Peru’s Sacred Valley for your own special retreat. Surrounded by spectacular Andean mountains, you'll be thrilled to hold your group gatherings in one of the most spiritually energized and beautiful places on Earth. This is Willka T’ika, a sustainable luxury retreat designed precisely to serve group leaders and teachers seeking the authentic mind, body and spirit experience in the perfect location.
Program options balance the daily spiritual practice or workshops with the rich cultural heritage and spiritual energy of the surrounding area. While at Willka T'ika, all programs include traditional Andean ceremonies with authentic Q’ero healers from the high mountains. Andean SPA services, full body massages, outdoor solar baths, crystal light therapies and options for nature-based ceremonies led by talented Andeans are all available.
· Our two beautiful sunlit yoga or dance studios are perfect for classes or lectures. They have hardwood floors, fit 25+ and 55+ mats comfortably and are fully equipped with mats, cushions and thick Andean blankets.

· Each of our Seven Chakra Gardens contain symbols, shapes, sculptures and medicinal plants that resonate with one of the seven major chakras, or energy centers, of the human body. Feel free to integrate them into your own group work.
