Sacred Spirit Yoga Retreat
Willka Tika, Sacred Valley of the Incas, Cusco, Peru

4 – 10 October 2025

Willka Tika is located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, one of the most energetically charged places on Earth. Nestled in the majestic mountains, valleys and foothills of Machu Picchu; this sacred place is an unforgettable setting for your authentic Andean retreat in the Pachamama heart of Peru.

Willka Tika has been consciously created and ecologically inspired by natural simplicity. There is a sustainably luxurious ambiance in harmony with the texture, tones and beauty of nature. The spaces are filled with natural light, offering sublime views of the gardens and mountains. The living room has earthy tones, cosy furnishings and a warm fire place for cool mountain evenings. The spacious bedrooms have been lovingly designed and uniquely decorated with traditional Peruvian features, Andean themes, local artwork and splashes of colour. Enjoy views of the mountains, abundant gardens and blooms by daylight. Fresh-cut blossoms adorn your room and cozy hot-water bottles warm your bed at night.

On waking up in this stunning natural location, we will do a blissful sunrise sadhana. The yoga shala has wooden floors, high vaulted ceilings, natural sunlight and views. Moving through beautiful sequencing and creative namaskars, we will embody the Sacred Spirit and power of nature through Elemental Inspired Vinyasa and Dharma Yoga. These soulful practices create a sense of connection, openness and vibrancy, leaving you feeling radiantly uplifted and alive. In the afternoons, we will surrender to a Yin Yoga and meditation sadhana, allowing your being to rest, replenish and rejuvenate.

Willka Tika nutrition is a delicious, fresh, flavourful, organic Andean fusion. Vegetarian dishes are lovingly made with farm-to-plate ingredients from the Willka Tika garden and local organic farms. Peruvian inspired bowls are traditionally prepared by Quechua chefs with native herbs and grains to nourish your whole body-being.

Between nourishing your body and bowl, immerse your soul in the serene chakra gardens. These healing gardens are designed with flowers, symbols, sculptures and medicinal plants that resonate with one of the seven chakras of the yoga tradition. Meditate, write, read, paint, mindfully walk or simply relax in the pure Pachamama beauty of earth. The Crown Chakra garden includes a 1000 year-old pre-Incan Lucuma tree, that is still fruit-bearing.


Detoxify and restore your body in the Umpina Wasi sweat lodge, cool in the Hampi Yaku medicinal plunge pool and relax in a restorative bath with the sacred plant essence of choice. You may also indulge in healing Andean massage, aromatherapy, hot stone massage or shiatsu; experience crystal light therapy or outdoor floral solar baths infused with flowers, medicinal herbs and local Maras salt.

Willka Tika offers a wide variety of natural and cultural experiences. Explore the Andean village of Pisaq, the colourful indigenous market, Quechuan culture and archeological site on the slopes of the mountain. Hike the the spectacular Salt Mines of Maras and the Incan Chullpas Ruins. Experience hiking or horseback riding through charming villages and high mountain meadows grazed by llamas and alpacas. Go river rafting on winding rivers through Andean valleys and mountains. Visit Ollantaytambo and the ancient mystical Incan ruin of Machu Picchu, the fourth Wonder of the World.

You may participate in authentic Andean rituals offered by local healers to honour the Apus, Mountain Spirits or experience a sound healing ceremony. We will close each day together watching the light of the sun set upon the mountain peaks. On our last evening, we will share a cacao ceremony and fire circle to unite us with Mother Nature and the sacred spirit inside our own Self.

One of the founding principles at Willka Tika is the Quechua concept of ayni or reciprocity. Ayni translates to ‘today for you, tomorrow for me’, meaning that our energy and destiny are intrinsically entwined and dependent on each other.

We are blessed to retreat together in the sacred Spirit of Ayni in Peru!
