    Pura Vida! 🌺🌞
    May we all work together for fun, repect and happiness!

    Are you looking to change your life?
    Do you want to train with Kung Fu masters? Would you like to learn about self-sustainable farming and gardening?
    Do you hold yourself to high standards of cleanliness?
    This may be the program for you.

    We are not your usual “workaway stay”. We are a highly disciplined family looking for people with hard work ethic, high standards of cleanliness, and willing to follow the program our and rules of our farm. Your focus must be on working as a team, for the benefit of our community, not yourself. We run a very tight ship.

    Our goal is to instill lessons of consideration, cleanliness, fitness, sustainability and overall health. We practice meditation, tai chi, kung fu, and farming/gardening daily. This place will force you to be disciplined, responsible, patient and focused.

    Our story:
    Our family trained Kung fu in China for 6 years, and now we are taking it to another level by combining it with farming in Costa Rica. Help us live cleaner and greener, we welcome you to try our community project and program for only 5 days.

    Health Benefits of Kung Fu/Tai Chi/ Meditation:
    Improve your flexibility and endurance
    Enhance your strength
    Improve your energy
    Condition the body as a whole
    Benefit from the mental and emotional states of practicing regularly.

    Once your booking is confirmed through Workaway, we will communicate through WhatsApp🌴💐
