We are looking for people skilled in either acroyoga, dance, partner Acrobatics, or movements for a non-profit cultural association run by local and international volunteers based in Geneva, Switzerland.
Since 2014, we have been organizing workshops on body improvisation, art, dance, wellness; events on movements and acroyoga.
The apartment is familial, also near the train station Cornavin, in a historical building, room and board included for one guest only. When wheather is nice, we practice outside. Otherwise, indoors, at the apartment or in a studio.
The stay can be short, over a weekend for instance. We are international, friendly, open-minded and trustworthy. We do not discriminate against race, sexual orientation or religion. We expect the same respectful attitude from the guests.
Geneva is a wonderful place full of art and culture, with parks nearby. Our main language is French and English, but other languages are spoken: Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian, Mandarin, Russian, German, Farsi, Arabic, Japanese, Turkish. Great opportunity to learn French, train and practice yoga and acroyoga, Acrobatics and dance, participate and organize cultural events in a multicultural environment. The idea is to set up a little performance too.
We are looking for skilled and advanced people, who could teach us some more flows and skills. Please send us a link to a video or photos of what you do. If you are a professional, some financial compensation can be considered.
Also, some basic maintenance of the “messy” apartment.
Persian (Farsi): Fluent
Chinese (Mandarin): Fluent
In exchange, we can offer lodging, your own room, breakfast, lunch and dinner (vegan option available). The place is shared with my family with total trust and privacy. The apartment is near public transportation, although everything is within walking distance.
The volunteer will have to opportunity to learn or practice French, learn and practice yoga, take part of other free activities. Local historical sites (old town, UN, Carouge) are within walking distance. I have a bicycle I can lend. The city is also full of parks, as we usually practice acroyoga outside. The several beaches are along the lake of Geneva, minutes away by bus or on foot. The association and the host is LGBT friendly.
