Ich bin gerade
unterwegs auf Reisen
My name is Jennifer, I'm from the US and I'm 32 years old. I love to travel, connect with people, learn about other cultures, and learn new skills/cultivate the skills I do have. I prefer to stick around in one place longer and get to know it on a deeper level rather than jump around to different tourist locations. I've found some of the best experiences I've had through travel were those I found on workaway!
I prioritize spending time in nature and I want to learn to live closer to the land. My favorite thing to do is take my dog for long walks in the woods and spend time near water. I'm a devoted yogini and I have a daily meditation and yoga practice. I'm a 500 hr ceritified yoga instructor, if anyone is interested in practicing yoga together :) I'm interested in any healing modalities. I like to have interesting conversations and dance parties and I also like alone time to read a book, journal, or just relax. I find balance is very important to me! Currently I'm just trying to be the best, most happy version of myself, so I can bring kindness, love, and my greatest attributes into the world! I find play, light heartedness, and authencity to be very important in my interactions with others.
Currently, I work as an online English teacher and therefore have the freedom to work and travel! The dream life!
My heart has been calling me to South America. Specifically, I plan to move to Peru. I would love to start my journey in a new country with a workaway, to gain a community and better insight into the country and language.
My travel/workexchange experience:
Backpacked in Thailand and through Central America.
Completed two immersive yoga teacher trainings in Costa Rica.
Volunteered at a meditation center in India.
Worked at a hostel in Brazil (via workway).
Completed a work exchange at a yoga studio in Scotland.
Taught English in Vietnam for one year.
Worked at a beachfront coffee shop/bar in Cambodia (via workaway).
Worked at a resort in Cambodia for 5 months.
Prior to traveling, I worked as a paralegal/office manager for 6 years.
What I can do for you:
English teacher - all levels and all ages
Yoga teacher - beginner
Hostel/resort work - food and beverage service, reception, administrative duties, help with guests, cleaning
What I want to learn:
Farming - interested in the homesteader life/living off the land/closer to the land
Mycology - I have a small mushroom grow op in my home. I'm passionate about mushroom medicine and I want to continue to grow my knowledge and skills in this field.
All healing modalities - traditional spiritual healings/cleanings, plant medicines, rieki, sound healing
Building community activities
I'm also open to other work and services I could provide to you!
A couple requirements:
Internet: I teach English online and I'm required to teach a minimum of 5 hours/week. I could see about taking some time off for the ideal workaway.
Dog: I come with a two year old, medium sized, friendly dog named Sara :)
Overall, I am a very responsible person, I get along well with others, and I can be trusted to do all types of work. I have experience but I’m also very teachable and I want to learn new things! I’ve been lucky to have great experiences traveling, and in the end, regardless of the beauty of a place, I realize the most important thing always ends up being the people I meet along the way. So, I hope to meet you soon! Thank you for reading.
