Larry W Thomas

"It is impossible to describe the breadth and depth of my experience at Willka T’ika. I believe that the spirit never dies and Carol’s work of art in Willka T’ika is living proof that the Spirits of Pachamama live within her and get passed to all who stay with her. What a perfect place to stay in Peru. Muchas gracias. " -- Larry W Thomas

The place the people, the food and the spirituality have far exceeded any expectations I had! I am 100% certain I will return and I highly recommend everyone visit here for a Magical Journey!

Bill Germer

"I haven’t done yoga, I am not a vegetarian, not many hours of my nearly 65 years have been spent in gardens, and Machu Picchu was not accessible. Yet, after a glorious week at Willka T’ika, I am excited about yoga, I have thoroughly enjoyed the delicious and beautifully prepared vegetarian menu, I am finding enchantment and serenity in the exquisite Chakra Gardens, and I have seen and absorbed so much of the Sacred Valley’s myths, mystery, monument and majesty that Machu Picchu has become unnecessary. Thanks to the guide for the blessings of our knowledge, enthusiasm and passion. Thank you, Carol, for transforming a vision into a reality, and for the nurture and loving care in which you immerse your guests. Peace " -- Bill Germer

Cathy and Gary Graham – Anasura Yoga Group.

"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  " -- Cathy and Gary Graham Anasura Yoga Group
