Wendy’s Casa Verde retreat deep in the cloud forest is such an amazing experience. Each day starts with incredible guided Ashtanga yoga, taught by Wendy. She can guide you into a deep and gentle practice that has the potential to deeply heal your body. Then there’s the endless bounty of incredible raw food and local tropical fruits! The beautiful forest and pure spring water let me detox gently from all of the day to day stress that accumulates living in a hectic world. I left feeling lighter in spirit and body and more rejuvenated then ever! Wendy is an amazing teacher and this retreat was truly priceless! Thank you Wendy!
Great food, great location and great yoga classes! Wendy is a thoughtful and considerate host. The grounds are great and full of beautiful plants and birds. Writing 200 words is kind of a pain. This place rocks, its all you need to know.
I spent four days doing yoga with Wendy at the Casa Verde and left feeling renewed! The place is immersed in nature, the outdoor yoga studio really allows you to deep dive into your practice feeling connected, and Wendy pushed me out of my comfort boundaries in a way that felt natural showing me I could do things I never thought could be possible! Definitely recommended, i will surely go back as soon as I can!
I’m 23 years old and have always been very active and eat very healthy. I was surprised in the huge different I felt after 10 days at Casa Verse! It was 10 days of the best food, water, air, rest, and movement practices I’ve experienced. Wendy is an incredible Ashtanga yoga teacher and with her encouragement and guidance, I was able to do things I never imagined my body could do, especially after just a week of practicing yoga! I lost bloating my body has held on to and left lighter, leaner, stronger, and loaded with a wealth of new knowledge. Wendy is truly a spectacular soul and Casa Verde is an oasis of real rest and healing. I can’t say enough good things!
With all the toxicity in the world right now, Wendy’s place, the yoga, the beautiful, fresh, lovingly-prepared food, the spring water, the hikes, the peace, the quiet of tropical cloud forest mornings with rufous-tailed and collared inca hummingbirds hovering at orchids and the afternoon tree-top vocalizing of yellow-throated toucans was all that was needed to heal the soul, the spirit. And sharing the experience with my girlfriend was something so incredibly special, bringing us even closer together. I cannot recommend Wendy’s enough and even though it was tough at times for a coffee-drinking (and yes, beer-drinking), admittedly meat-eating yoga neophyte like me, the rewards of a renewed spirit in mind and body and a new outlook on health and life were worth every awkwardly executed pose, every morning without caffeine, every ignored craving. This was just what was needed in my world and I return to everyday life refreshed and ready. Thank you, Wendy for providing this atmosphere of peace and health, of comfort in accommodation and spirit; thank you for making your place and environs such a safe and worry-free environment. We cannot recommend this experience enough; it will be with us every day. We cannot wait for our return to your small slice of serenity tucked into the verdant carpeted green slopes of the west Andean foothills.…
