Casa Verde, located near Mindo Ecuador, is a must visit retreat for anyone interested in yoga, raw food and hiking/walking. The beautiful property, owned and operated by Wendy Green, is possibly one of the most beautiful settings for a relaxing, restoring and cleansing break. Set in the cloud mountains you can switch off from the hectic world and take time to regain balance in your life - something we ALL need!
Studying in India herself, Wendy's knowledge of Ashtanga Yoga is exceptional, and with only 4 guests staying at one time, she caters for beginners right through to the more seasoned yogi. And who doesn't love practicing on an open deck in the middle of a forest - soaking in nature with every breath...... Daily assisted practice, along with walks, hikes and relaxation time allowed for a very balanced break for me.
Wendy's knowledge of Ayurveda, nutrition and sustainability is also incredible and she is willing to share all of this information with you. I was lucky enough to have an extended stay with Wendy and the learnings, growth and transformation I experienced were beyond my expectations.
The raw food at Wendy's home is all locally sourced and delicious to say the least! Her home has a wonderful 'home away from home' feel, and Wendy and her dog Rio make you feel relaxed from the minute you arrive.
A wonderful place to get away and most certainly somewhere that I want to visit again with my husband or mother....
