    Yogic living and sustainable farming practices in picturesque Port Barton, Philippines.

    As a Yoga Center and experimental sustainability project, our vision is to become actively involved in the exploration of sustainable food production systems, alternative living and community supported education projects with a focus on balanced, harmonious and joyful living. We also work with alternative energy and have an independent solar power system.

    Our project supports and is supported by the surrounding community, within which we assist local schools and will soon be offering yoga classes to school-aged and adult groups.

    If you are interested in seeing our vision of clean, simple and conscious living. We welcome people from all walks of life whether you are a traveling artisan or recently retired from the 9-5 grind.

    Ideally some experience or knowledge of permaculture techniques, organic farming, natural building, carpentry would be beneficial.

    In return for your assistance we offer basic lodging, a kitchen for preparing your own food, some fruits from the land when abundant, the opportunity to study with a highly experienced Yoga teacher and participate in some classes and courses that we are running.

  • Accommodation


    At this stage there is some simple Philippino-style huts, and a kitchen with basic ammenities - perfect for being close to nature. We also have tenting.

    However, as we sometimes hold Permaculture Courses during which students construct buildings, the availability and standard of our accommodations will be improved.
