    Our center is nestled into the jungle area of Puerto Viejo: an original, reggae, surf town on the southern tip of Costa Rica. This is both a jungle lodge as well as a yoga retreat and training center. The location offers ocean views, wildlife interaction, organic farming, easy access to the bustling city below, as well as ample room for relaxation.

    Puerto Viejo itself is a close community that enjoys embracing nature throughout the day, whether that be a $1 bus-ride to one of the neighboring National Parks in Manzanillo or Cahuita or a relaxing day on one of the local beaches (ie. Playa Negra or Cocles). At night the city sparks with fire shows at local bars or live music performed by local artists.

    The goal of our center is to provide an organic, safe, sanctuary to reconnect with yourself and nature. There are many ways of doing so here!

    Since this is such a holistic space, there is much help needed! From organic farming, to reception, to organisational and promotional tasks, community yoga coverage, childcare, pet care and more. For us, it is about what you can offer in conjunction with your goals and passions in life.

    We want your help to fulfill you, we want to operate as a family, rather than merely a help-trade machine. What would be helpful would be to send us your skill set so that we can work to match you in an ideal part of this community.

    Helping out here will broaden your perspective. With a relaxing environment you will understand the value of connecting with yourself in nature as well as how to interrelate with others around you in a gracious, compassionate way.

    Puerto Viejo will expose you to the tranquility of slowing down and indulging in activities that you may not otherwise have time for, whether that be reading a book or gazing out toward the horizon while listening to the ocean waves. Nightlife sparks the inner fire of Puerto Viejo. You will learn to embrace the shakti of true living, the vibrancy of letting go of inhibitions.
