"Willka T'ika is a true gift. After 22 years of teaching yoga and guiding adventure travel in Peru, we are so happy to have found this special place to stay. Fresh organic food made and served by loving Quechua staff, inspirational gardens, the great yoga room, clean and charming sleeping rooms makes this a place where we can feel at home while feeling a connection with a culture that we love. The Sacred Valley is right out the door. The Spirit of the Andes is alive here!

"Not only were we ‘flying high’ from the magnificent gardens, great food, and of course the altitude, but it was the ‘down to earth’ hospitality and warmth of both the staff and owner, Carol, that really touched our hearts. I can't imagine a more perfect spot to teach yoga.

"Willka T'ika combines the best of Peru:a beautiful setting, delicious food and wonderfully warm people-to make a yoga retreat here a delight.
"-- Judith Lasater Yoga Teacher San Francisco, California
"Carol, Mark and the staff of locals make this a most special place. Our guide and co-adventurer, spoke with such passion for her homeland that we all grew to love her and Peru. The organization and attention to detail helped our group feel right at home. The skylight in the Yoga Room enhanced our Suryanamaska in the morning, and the blankets were deluxe. The whole group said that they had never been fed so well and with such consistent quality – even on excursions- all details were seen to with great care. We plan to return to the beautiful gardens of Willka T’ika and the Sacred land of Peru.
"-- Vickie Aldridge Boise Yoga Center Boise, Idaho
"I have traveled the world and seen many fascinating places, and Willka T’ika is the one I plan to return to again and again. The gardens are exquisite, the food is brimming with vitality and the location is conducive to experiencing the ancient essence. Our warm-hearted hosts, Carol and Mark, have created an atmosphere of beauty and tranquility. Together with the very loving indigenous people of Peru, they have handcrafted an ideal and nurturing retreat. The combination of a daily Yoga practice, meditation in the gardens and hiking in the Andes re-connects us with the Earth. If you visit Willka T’ika you will experience the heart and soul of Peru.
