      About this trip

      Pack your bags and get ready to be restored & refreshed with 7 glorious nights at the stunning Willka T'ika in Urbamba, Peru. 

      We love creating experiences where people can share time as a community, getting back in touch with what really matters, and return home more alive; more centered; restored and refreshed. Lush gardens, solar heated salt baths, hikes, ruins, hot springs, and clean food await for your total reset.

      On this trip, we have opted to elevate these experiences in a mic-dropping location in The Sacred Valley of Peru, just a train ride away from Machu Picchu.  Willka T’ika , our home for the week, sits between the Incan Capital of Cusco and the World Heritage Site of Machu Picchu, and is an exquisite sanctuary designed for self-discovery and rejuvenation. Willka T’ika is listed by Yoga Journal as the “best yoga retreat to book in South America” and is the premier luxury retreat center in the Sacred Valley of Peru; offering spa services, solar heated salt baths, lush garden spaces for activities and self-reflections.. Your retreat leaders, Caroline & Bill Karditzas, Luz Hicela Galeano, and Vic Stone, have designed an unforgettable week(scroll down to see the itinerary) balanced between play and discovery, relaxation and exploration, movement and meditation...all meant to nourish the soul and invite renewal of Spirit. Join us for ceremonies, hot springs, spa treatments, hikes, ancient ruins, yoga, meditations, music, delicious vegetarian food, and if you choose, you can cap it all off with a full-day tour of the ancient site of Machu Picchu. 

       

      Joining our community this week, means being part of our healing circle. We welcome each individual as an integral member of that which will undoubtedly serve the higher consciousness and be a life-affirming journey for us all. ALL are welcome and ALL will be cared for. With your added energies, we will journey through vibrations and meditations, using movement to unlock energies of the body, as well as experience places that invite adventure, while leaving lots of space for self-care and integration. 


      Let’s unplug together. Let’s get away from the noise of everyday life, connect a little deeper, and explore the beauty of Peru. Pack your sense of wonder. Show up just as you are and prepare to be energizied in an environment built for learning, creativity, contemplation, and rejuvenation.
