Most lovely experience! Jyl has such a heart for the land, chocolate, and yoga. She is very knowledgeable and her wisdom, enthusiasm, and peace is contagious. The trip is well planned and the venues, food, and experiences are life changing. If you are thinking about it but not sure...just do it! Your life will not be the same and you will not regret it!

A special heartfelt Thank you to Jyl Kutsche and her team of expert guides and teachers. The Yoga of Chocolate: Journey of the Senses vastly exceeded any expectations I had for traveling to my forgotten childhood dream location of Peru and Machu Picchu! I have attended Jyl’s Yoga of Chocolate workshops and have thoroughly enjoyed them and was fascinated by her passion for cacao and stories of the amazing country of Peru that led to my decision for this retreat. Every detail of the yoga retreat at Sacha Munay, Sacred Valley was perfectly coordinated for the comfort and enjoyment of our group to enjoy yoga, ceremony, star gazing, hiking, self care bodywork, delicious organic meals and the finest and most delicious chocolate tasting on the planet. Guided sightseeing tours to Marsal, Moray, Chinchero and Pisac for shopping complimented the amazing cultural experiences of the Sacred Valley and Cuzco region.

After the Journey of the Senses of the Sacred Valley half of our group then continued on through the Andean rainforest to visit a cacao farm in the amazon jungle to enrich our appreciation of where cacao is grown among coffee and many varieties of citrus. We then participated in harvesting the cacao, roasting the beans and processing it to increase our knowledge and depth of appreciation in the amount of work that goes into making chocolate. It is truly a labor of love and an inherent pride of the farmers that grow it. The journey of the senses continued on as we hiked a portion of the Inca trail to Aguas Calientes for the night and to be the first bus to arrive for the most epic experience of sunrise on Machu Picchu! A deep bow of gratitude to Jyl and her expert guides for this life changing experience ~ Namaste
