  • Description

    Description

    We are a small growing community of like minded people. Our family currently has 3 core members including s yoga teacher , a massues and a body worker as well as a changing number of beautiful people staying with us through Workaway/friends etc. We are on a beautiful property overlooking one of the quietest surfing beaches around San Juan del Sur. Our aim is to live as simply and sustainably as possible. We're creating a space where one can come to heal. Where one can disconnect from all distraction and be at one with their thoughts and feelings while being around a supportive and non judgmental family. 🧑🧑🧑

    We just re-opened the doors to Workaway after a long break as we are beginning a new chapter and expanding the project. We have plans to build several structures, get our well and running water working, and also want to progress our garden, so we would love some people ready to get into some fun but also some physical hard work πŸ’ͺ🏽πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏿

    Our current setup is very simple and basic. We sleep in hammocks, tents, campervans and pallet shacks while listening to the chirp of insects, howling monkeys and the crash of waves.

    Also we have 8 dogs and 2 cats who are a big part of our lives, so animal lovers are a bonus πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…

    Please send us a message if you feel drawn to this project and we can take it from .

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will be immersed in a world of simplicity and will learn how to really appreciate a slower pace of life, learning from the beautiful local nicaraguan families here and also ourselves. Emmi is badass Yoga teacher, Bruna is a beautiful Reiki practicioner and also works with Bio-magnitism and Alex has been working with people for many years helping to cultivate a greater sense of self worth/love as well as being a masseur/body worker. We have all also been doing a lot of internal healing work and have a lot of practices to share around self love and acceptance.

    What else ...

    We have a truck on the property we use to head to town occasionally. We have a beautiful quiet beach 3 minutes drive and 15 mins walk away. There's some great surfing for all levels.

    Sometimes we explore the nearby beaches together and take occasional trips into San Juan. We are off the grid and use solar power. No WiFi here but you can use WhatsApp and Messenger with a Claro chip. There are four buses to and from San Juan daily.
