Join us for inspiring raw food, ashtanga yoga and hiking retreats in the Ecuador’s cloud forest!

Casa Verde Raw – Hiking – Yoga Retreats in Ecuador is a top-rated raw food yoga retreat, where guests come from far and wide to experience a one-of-a-kind, transformational yoga retreat experience.

I’m Wendy Green, your host and instructor. I have been practicing yoga since 1970 and Ashtanga since 1996. I am one of the few individuals who has spent time studying directly with the founding father of Ashtanga Yoga, Sri K Patabhi Jois, in Mysore India. Read more about my background.

I believe the Ashtanga method is divinely inspired and, when practiced with determination and consistency, can ultimately heal our body/mind from the inside out rather quickly. Ashtanga is a dynamic practice, building strength, agility, balance and confidence.

Over the decades, I have learned to modify and soften the practice to accommodate everyone, regardless of body type, age or ability. I teach using the traditional method of hands on assists, enabling students to explore postures deeper, creating muscle memory and allowing students to move through physical and mental limitations swiftly. You will be amazed how promptly your yoga practice evolves.

We invite everyone, beginner and tenured yoga student alike, to join us with an opened mind and willing spirit… slowly slowly, do your practice and all things come!

It’s a haven of biodiversity and one of the richest areas of the planet with respect to the concentration of bird species, including butterflies. Here are some 3,200 species of butterflies. Many of these species are endangered. Best to go in the morning, the butterflies are more active in the sun.

By the end of my stay, I felt like a new man. Wendy has done for me what no doctor or specialist have ever been able to do and in the span of only 8 days! I highly recommend spending a week to ten days with Wendy Green
