  • Description


    My name is Marcos. We work from 8 to 18 hours in the construction of a retreat yoga center in the middle of an incredible forest. We have an organic diet, not smoke area, we meditate and practice yoga everyday. We like to speak clearly, art, nature, music, as well as participate in collective initiatives in the area. Here is a perfect place for get energy, center, Prana, ... learn about garden or bioconstruction.

    I would like that the people who visit, enjoy to be with out drugs, coffe, alcohol, not only when you are in the house, during the period time you are doing the Workaway in this place.

    The heating system of the house is a nice tradiotional from this area, it works with fire and it is the salon. If you not enjoy making fire for heating, this is not your place. Is not heating system in the rooms, just the hot of the heating system from the salon. I try to live like people in this area. I hope you enjoy this experience.

    We prepare breakfast together, the lunch midday is made one day each, and dinner goes by free.

    The purchase, the cleaning of the house and the tasks of the home, are not included in the volunteer time and are tasks shared among the inhabitants of the house

    We live in a beautiful Soto village, in an area known as Ribeira Sacra, I recommend you see images on the internet. Now we are building a building focused on permaculture and meditation, in an artisan way and with bioconstruction criteria. Help would be welcome by supporting constructive work or helping at home.
    From 5 hours of daily work and sharing the tasks of maintaining a house, such as food, shopping and cleaning, we are happy.
