    Description

    Our project is an exclusive Yoga Retreat Center on Fuerteventura, Canary Islands. (Not a hostel!)

    We offer small group Yoga and Wellbeing retreats attending to small groups of about 6 - 8guests.

    Our Yoga center lies in the village of Lajares in the north of the island aproximately a 10 minutes to north, east and west for the most beautiful beaches. Lajares is a cool place with cafes, restaurants, bars, artesian shops, galleries, etc. without being a tourist hotspot. You will meet lots of locals having a juice at the Mazzo bar f.e.

    During retreats, our helpers are welcome to participate in our yoga classes 1x daily for free if we have space in the Shala (which is often the case).

    We are looking for friendly, reliable helpers 25!!!!!!!!!!! or more years of age (please please please abstain from applying if you are younger, don´t rob my precious time in making me reply unnecessary messages!!!.

    Good English is a must, as our guests are international and the common language with them is English.

    Fruit delivery and cleaning staff speak Spanish only, so if you would like to communicate with them, get your Spanish out. You will be okay though with English only.

    The daily work is very diverse, receiving fruit delivery, setting table, feeding dish washer after dinner, help with laundry, water the plants, gardening in general, etc. Taking the guests running and hiking, etc.

    We especially welcome help of Yoga teachers, Massage therapists, photographers and social media pros and volunteers who like running and sports and of course Yoga ;)

    So any qualification with a vegan background/macrobiotic in this aspect is appreciated as well, as we also like to learn and like the inspiration and exchange for veggie dishes, new smoothie recipes, etc. we are very much into healthy food.

    Just that you know how we work here:

    We do have 7 days retreats and our volunteers help 5 of these days. The work is not hard work, but time intensive. Being present and putting table for dinner is not hard work, but you have to be there on a schedule. Well you would have to be there anyways to eat, but you set the table for everyone. There is always at least 2 volunteers, so tasks are split. We do have a house manager and a cleaning lady who does the professional cleaning of guest rooms 3 times a week during retreats.

    Then in retreat free weeks, we expect that you keep the place clean, as cleanliness is very important to us. But you would do that in your own home as well so we consider these as free weeks.
    (We don´t like to have to remind you that you regularly clean the room where you stay in. It is a Yoga place, so cleanliness should be natural. Saucha)

    During retreat weeks our cook prepares dinner and in off-weeks you are expected to prepare your own food, money for shopping is provided.

    We want to be really clear about this, so that you don´t build false expectations. So far we have had a great experience with all volunteers, who have brought a lot of motivation and effort in creating a great save place for personal development for our guests and themselves as well.

    As a return you get to meet a lot of incredible guests, very interesting international personalities with great stories and many friendships start during the retreat weeks.
