What we found was a place of heart-felt tranquility, balance and spirituality, where one’s practice of yoga felt more “connected”; connected to the heart and its peoples came to us through our guide, provided by the Magical Journey. In effect, our guide became a twentieth member of our group, leading us to varied sites, explaining the history of each reaching back to and through the Inkan era, and sharing with us the passion and pride of the Quechua people. The Magical Journey itinerary had been prescribed for us, and included all of the logistical details that would afford us a personal and ‘up close look’ at the Andean culture. The simplicity of life and the true attitude of softhearted devotion. While a major component of the Willka T’ika experience was its “yoga-friendly” nature, another significant aspect was the introduction to and experience of Peru, and more importantly, the historical and spiritual nature of the Inkan civilization and its people. The key to the secrets and history of the region
