Willka T'ika is home to the renowned Chakra Gardens, filled with exotic plants and native Andean medicinal plants. The gardens are designed to correspond to the seven chakras of the human body, and are ideal for meditation and reflection in the energies of nature. Set within the gardens are two magnificent fully-equipped, state-of-the-art yoga studios. Willka T'ika is environmentally conscious and is professionally staffed by dedicated local Quechua.
Willka Tika is an ideal retreat for yoga, meditation, wellness, and for spiritual teachers to host their unique programs, offering a perfect supportive environment for learning, creativity, contemplative arts, healing and rejuvenation. Program options balance the daily spiritual practice or workshops offered by retreat leaders with the rich cultural heritage and sacred energy of the surrounding area. Beautiful accommodations, delicious fresh organic vegetarian meals, use of Willka T'ika's exceptional facilities including two fully-equipped yoga studios and the majestic Chakra Gardens, and the kind professional care of our dedicated Quechua staff are Wilka Tika's special features. Additionally, Andean spa services are individually available to all retreat guests once in residence.
