YOUR TEAM OF GUIDES:

Jill Bullock

Jill Bullock, Yoga Teacher & Mindset Coach

Let me share my journey with you. I kicked off my career in the dental realm, dedicating 16 years to it. While the health field intrigued me, I realized it wasn’t where my true happiness and fulfillment resided. I had always been drawn to the holistic lifestyle, self-development and I loved yoga.

Knowing that life is brimming with opportunities that beckon us to learn and evolve, with this knowing driving me, I made a bold choice to pivot in a completely new direction. I zeroed in on my passion for holistic wellness, and mindset. I craved a deeper connection with these areas that I loved so much.

My aspiration? To engage with people on a deeply profound level, aiding them in forging a fresh, inward relationship with themselves, empowering them to create the life of their dream. I honed my skills in mindset coaching, embraced the mindful world of yoga, and delved into the stress-busting realm of reflexology. This new drive ignited a fire within me for a career where I could guide and support people who wanted real change in their life, a career that resonated on a personal level.

So, I took the leap and brought about a change. Today, I proudly stand as a certified 200-hour Yoga Instructor, an accredited NLP Practitioner, and officially recognized reflexologist endorsed by the Reflexology Association of Canada.

My mission is crystal clear: deliver a distinctive healing experience, coupled with a sincere intention to guide individuals toward holistic well-being and empowered living. I look forward to being a guide on your healing journey.

Dr. Ameet, ND

Bestselling author and voted top 43 naturopaths worldwide Dr. Ameet Aggarwal ND is one of the only health practitioners who helps you heal your physical, emotional and ancestral root causes of chronic illness and mental health issues. Dr. Ameet combines naturopathic medicine, gestalt psychotherapy, family constellations therapy, homeopathy, psychosomatic healing, EMDR and A Course in Miracles to ensure you heal your biology and any emotional trauma affecting your health.

Holistic therapies that only heal your body ignore the influence of trauma on your health. Therapies that only address trauma and emotions ignore healing your body.

She creates an open space where you can allow your intuition to blossom and elevate your spirit to a new level of awareness and healing.

Valerio enjoys sharing his passion and love for his culture and the interconnection of the natural world with Andean spirituality with others.

This may be the best and most beautiful place I’ve ever stayed. The staff is incredibly kind and accommodating. The suites are gorgeous. The food is so healthy and delicious. They are very accommodating for food allergies and dietary restrictions. The area on and around the resort is amazing and the views of the mountains are top notch. Loved the spa. Highly recommend!
You will never regret staying in this magical place. Munay Sonqo is the home away from home that you didn't know you were missing. The energy of the sacred valley is imbedded in everything and everyone here. The staff, the animals, the food, the neighborhood were all so spectacular. I will never forget the memories made and all of the time I spent here.
Amazing food and super nice staff! Munay Sonqo is amazing. The staff is super nice and the food was unbelievable. We had people with allergies in our group and they were able to cover this among other things perfectly. I’d highly recommend this place. It’s an experience of a lifetime
Munay Sonqo is the most beautiful and sacred place. The staff is so lovely, the food is divine. The setting is quiet and indescribable for beauty. I hosted a group of 22 people on a yoga and wellness retreat here in October and already booked for next year. I highly reccomend this place for anyone that loves nature, exploring, and serenity.
They treat you like family. The land is utterly magical, the staff are incredibly accommodating. I would live here year round if i could. The yoga shalas feel like very sacred spaces. Anything you need, just ask and a staff member is there for you. I spent Christmas here and i felt more at home than I have in my life. They also accommodated my service dog for disability, as well as my food allergies. Overall, an amazing and magical time, and i will be back for sure.

This is a time to reflect, relax and recharge. This is an invitation to journey towards curiosity, compassion and courage. This experience is devoted to your well-being, self-discovery and growth.
