Sacred Valley of the Incas, Peru

I had a wonderful time and feel so relaxed after my week long visit to The Green House. The beautiful garden facing the sacred mountain, Apu Pitusiray is a fabulous view to wake up to and to enjoy throughout the day. Hummingbirds of several varieties frequent the garden and a flock of parrots flew over the grounds on a couple of occasions and landed one morning during our meditation which felt very fortuitous. The property is a comfortable place to relax, reflect, to gather strength, and to enjoy life. Jyl expertly planned an agenda with a variety of activities including daily meditation, yoga, and chocolate tasting. Other activities included a Despacho Ceremony with coca leaf reading option, a fire pit gathering, a day trip to visit a local weaving community with lunch on-site, a hike to a nearby waterfall with picnic lunch, a Swedish massage option, an acupuncture and massage option, a day trip to Moray, Maras, and Chinchero including lunch with a local community, and make your own Aqua Florida using flowers and herbs gathered from the property and nearby areas. The food was delicious and adapted well to dietary preferences. Housekeeping was excellent with nice touches including bath salts, locally made soap and body lotion, and a thoughtful welcome note with gift bag. Overall I would highly recommend this experience!

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.
