  • Description


    We need help very soon if interested :)

    We use to travel as often as we can all over the world and we found a great way to go on travelling while we’re in france : hosting volunteers !
    We are a friendly and creativ family :
    Maud : writer, musician and naturopath, specialist of Detox diet and fasting, practice yin- yoga and meditation and Juan from Columbia, clown, student in Non Violent Communication, yogi and great vegan chief, he likes to teach vegan cooking, wood work, restoring a house and yoga vinyasa. With us, 5 beautiful souls : Zacharie (6), Enki (9), Sophie (14) , Julieta (18) y Fabio (16)
    Our kids are great French teachers, they are very talkative!
    We are now restoring our new yoga and detox center which is situated in a beautiful area with fields and forests, 500 m from a small typical village, not very far from Paris ( 2 hours by train). Here we are restoring our eco-house and a yoga and art center.
    We live in an ecological way and we eat organic food. We eat mostly organic vegetarian or vegan food. Made sometimes from wild herbs that we find around .
    If you feel like spending time in nature, living simply, sharing lifetime, come to join us !
    We need a hand for different kind of things : we are happy to get help to make the outdoors nicer and nicer, plant flowers and create new outside spaces and to help restoring the house ( this is the main activities this automn/winter). sometimes tou can help with Enki and zacharie who are doing homeschooling, to help with computer work ( communication/website... for the detox retreats) to create colorful wooden signs, for cooking, for cleaning the house and the outside, to give music courses, paint, all arts courses to the kids. Please let us know in your mail what you are good with and what you would like to do.
    Regularly, Maud gives detox and yoga retreats. When it happens , Need also help to clean the rooms, to make detox juices, vegan meals, you can also give yoga courses sometimes if you want. And of course you can learn about yoga, meditation, writing...
    Very close to home, you will find nice walking and biking tracks...
    It's ideal if you are mature, able to help with cooking, cleaning or wash dishes spontaneously. Our home is a good place for those who love simplicity, quietness, family life...

    Of course we provide all meals that we cook together!

    We like a minimum stay of 7 days.
    A bientôt :)
