Karma/Seva Yoga Program

We are looking for community-minded hardworking people who are respectful and helpful to be part of our team. Since we are an intentional community-based yoga retreat, we expect people to work together. The people that live here are not just volunteers, but karmic yogis.

Our goal is to create change in the world by making small changes to ourselves and those that stay at the retreat. Seva Yoga is an act of selfless service, a way to give your time and energy to the greater good and create a better world for all – to live in the true spirit of yoga.

While you’re here, we welcome you to immerse yourself in the Retreat setting by joining in on our daily class schedule, using our gym, pool, and steam room, going for bushwalks on our 60 beautiful acres, and joining our community for meals, sports, and games. We provide free accommodation and the ability to re-center your mind and body in a safe and peaceful setting.

Tasks

The tasks are generally the maintenance and running of the Yoga centre. The work depends on what skills you have or what you’d like to do or learn how to do. We’re happy to train you and provide references upon request (which can be helpful in the future). It’s important to note that the work is often unsupervised so you must be self-motivated.

Currently, we are looking for people with the following skills – and most importantly: experience.

– Cooking (we are a vegetarian yoga retreat, with up to 40 guests at a time, so it’s important that you know your way around the kitchen)
– Yoga & meditation teacher (we currently offer traditional hatha, vinyasa and yin – but are open to any style)
– Housekeeping & cleaning
– Office (emails, bookings, phone calls)
– Marketing (social media posts and engagement, graphic design, photography, copy, strategies, etc.)
– Permaculture and gardening
– Maintenance & Trades: electrician, plumbing, building, painting, handyman, etc.
– Elderly care

We like for people to stay for a minimum of 3 weeks, to really become part of our community. Often people stay much longer than initially planned, but this all depends on availability and suitability.

Accommodation

We offer comfortable shared ensuite accommodation and some single options. WIFI and cell service is available. Please note that we have limited availability, so the more notice you give us the more likely we can accommodate you.

Food and special dietary requirements

We supply healthy vegetarian food, mostly vegan. We love cooking and eat very well. You will be expected to help with cooking, food preparation and cleaning up afterward. Besides this, everyone is expected to clean up after themselves. We can cater to different food needs too i.e vegan and gluten-free. If you have any preferences, please notify us.

We don’t eat meat, drink or smoke and ask all of our guests and karmic yogis not to do so on the property. We have had previous volunteers who had different expectations and it caused some tension as they were constantly craving what we don’t offer.

We are a very diverse and open-minded community and love to learn from other cultures.

We look forward to hearing from you soon. Namaste!
