    Please check availability !!! When the calendar is locked I don't usually respond.
    Ok so.. We need help in a residence that provides accommodation services to students, artists, travellers and yoga and acro yoga practitioners.

    Now I need help in the following activities:

    Cleaning: Help is needed to keep common and work areas clean.
    Carpentry: Maintenance of house and intalacón of shelves.
    Food: Help to cook and to improve my knowledge of cooking (preferably vegans).
    Photography: I need professional photos to portray the interiors of the house.
    Decoration and construction: Definition of spaces, architects or designers who love helping design a ceiling for one of the terraces.
    Plumbing: It is necessary to complete the installation of two bathrooms, it is necessary to know how to use the torch and know about hydraulic installations.

    The maximum length of stay is two weeks, so keep that in mind. It works 4 effective hours, 5 days a week. We start at 9, after breakfast and finish at 1 or 2 pm.

    We do not include food, but we are in a fairly cheap local area so it is very economical. You can buy fresh vegetables and fruit together to reimburse costs (approximately 150-200 pesos per person per week).

    Please specify in your message what are your estimated dates of beginning and end of stay and how you could help.

    --->> About me

    I like philosophy specifically in the field of ethics and social processes. In my spare time I teach acroyoga, I learn yoga, a bit of martial arts and also a little slackline. I like architecture and art, I also paint, but I must admit that right now I am more interested in exploration with the body and movement.

    I try to be aware of the repercussions that my individual actions have on other people and for this reason, I always give importance to respecting cultural beliefs and concepts, that is, interculturality. I don't like to believe that my reality is the one with the truth, so I only intervene or suggest when it is the request of the other or the others.

    My life is minimalist and I also believe that the meaning of life can be found in a simple rock, you just have to observe a little, listen and live the present with awareness to be happy.

    In the future, I want to build a school in another place and a sustainable house, preferably in a city that conserves flora and fauna. I would also like to promote in this school alternative models of education that help promote and generate a more empathic society. It seems to me that words matter, but it is our daily actions that define us.
    It is clear that now it is in the big cities where the greatest changes are needed. We need a lot of work, change the way we relate and our consumption.

    Anyway, I am mostly vegetarian, but I have no problem accepting people who are not.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My life has transformed through different areas, I studied architecture, from there I went to sociology, psychology and now philosophy. Currently I am writing about the subject of ethics from a philosophical approach. At the same time as developing this project and teaching acroyoga, I leave time to practice other disciplines.

    I believe that being here will allow you to develop a broad perception of what life is really like in Latin American, specifically for Mexicans.

    You can also meet and connect with a large group of very nice people with whom I collaborate.
