We have an established yoga retreat which has been based on the beautiful island of Koh Yao Noi for over 10 years. With a traditional Thai 'no frills' style, we like to make sure the emphasis here is on the quality of yoga and beauty of the nature around us.
Help with Computers/ Internet
Take some time out to reconnect with nature on beautiful Koh Yao Noi, a stunning little island nestled in Phang Nga bay in Thailand. You can participate in twice daily yoga and meditation classes. You will also have access to our shala spaces when they're not in use if you'd like to use this for your own yoga or fitness practice.
We host tai chi on the beach every morning which is an astoundingly beautiful place to watch the sunrise and connect with nature.
We also host a variety of yoga workshops and treatments which can further deepen your practice and volunteers receive a discount on any of these.
We're looking for some support for content creation and marketing projects, so if you're a video producer, photographer, copywriter, or digital marketing specialist, you're most welcome! =)
*what we need most are video producers and copywriters.
**we also have a lot of walls to be Graffitied and painted... so ILLUSTRATORS/GRAFFITI Artists (and wall painters), you are very welcome too! ;D
Remembering that this is not a job, but an immersion experience in our yoga and meditation retreat, where you can contribute with your creative skills as an exchange... so be ready to have a yogic routine!
*** PLEASE READ BEFORE APPLYING!! We are only looking for volunteers who can support in these areas and can provide us with examples of their previous work. We employ local staff who support us with the everyday running of the retreat and have resident yoga teachers who cover all our class needs so we ask that you do not contact us to offer reception or general duties or as a yoga teacher. Thank you for understanding! =)
You'll stay on-site, in our staff house. We have a mix of double and twin rooms. If we have space, we will always try to give you a private room, however, you may be sharing with another volunteer of the same sex (couples are also welcome). Each room has its own private bathroom and use of a shared kitchen area with other volunteers and staff. The staff area is separated from the rest of the retreat and has a balcony to hang out over the mangroves to allow you a space to relax away from the guests.
The retreat is located directly on a beach and has beautiful views over Phang Nga bay. We also have a Thai restaurant, health food cafe, and swimming pool on-site as well as 3 beautiful yoga shala's which you are welcome to make use of while there are no other classes.
What you will get:
- Accommodation at the staff house with shared kitchen;
- Breakfast Buffet (we usually eat after the guests);
- 2 daily yoga classes;
- Daily sunrise taichi meditation;
- Discount on workshops;
- SUP boards, Kayak and Bikes available to use for free;
- Scooter shared with me and other volunteers;
- Use of resort facilities (swimming pool, shalas, beachfront cafe);
Koh Yao Noi is a stunning island - recently dubbed one of the 6 Most Wild and Beautiful Places to Practice Yoga by the National Geographic! Although only 30 minutes from Phuket by boat and 45 from Krabi, it's still relatively untouched by tourism compared to the rest of Thailand so it's the perfect place to unwind and connect back with nature.
The island is predominantly Muslim in comparison to some of the more touristic spots in Thailand, so you won't find any full moon parties or 'buckets' here which has helped the island retain its natural charm. It does also mean we should be a little more aware of the local culture, dressing more modestly in public areas than you might in a busy tourist spot for example.
There are many beautiful beaches to explore and often you'll have these completely to yourself!
We also arrange many different excursions including island hopping and kayaking.
