  • Description


    We are a small family living at the Volcanic Lagoon of Santa Maria del Oro, Nayarit. We have started a Yoga Retreat Center at the same time we got pregnant. It has been crazy around here! We need help in both constucting and our home (taking care of our baby and washing dishes). Due to past awkward experiences and that we now have a baby, only breakfast is provided. if you work 3 hours you can stay here at the lake. There is a kitchen you may use, please keep it clean at all times. We only provide with proper lodging during week days (sunday evening to friday morning). For the weekend we have a camping spot for you.
    these conditions may change in the future. but for now this is what we can offer

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Living inside a crater next to a volcanic lagoon can be healing. After your time here you will see how a small family organizes themselves in order to manage a business, and you will contribute to this. We speak German at home, so you wont really be practicing much spanish. This is a place where you can have lots of time for introspection and to be on your own with nature. You will also experience a vegan diet during the mornings.

  • Help


    We are working non-stop to expand our retreat center. We are blessed with our child yet it is sometimes hard to work when he is demanding attention to play and be looked at.
    We would like to have an extra pair of hands. We are an easy going couple and love to chat, yet after your 3 hours of labor (3 hours of real labor, eating or chatting is not counted within the 3 hours, so we ask you to be mindful) we ask you to please take care of yourself and look for things to do or books to read. The lagoon is a perfect spot for someone who seeks to be in contact with nature.

  • Accommodation


    We offer acomodation during the week in the house we normally rent out on BnB during the weekends. It is a very beautiful location. During the weekend we provide a spot for camping. Yes it is quite a change from one to the other, but just keep in mind it is only 2 days per week, the rest you will be able to sleep on a real bed.
