  • Description


    Welcome, Workaways! We are in the process of renovating Koh Phangan's original yoga school and there's lots to be done. Our Yoga Center was started in 2001 by David who grew up in Canada and has been studying and teaching Chakra Yoga for 47 years. Ely is now managing the property and is excited to work with people from around the world! We are situated on the northwest side of the island in a beautiful jungle with ocean views, only 2 minutes drive to the sandy shores of Haad Salad beach. The land is a beautiful green space which houses 10 bungalows, a restaurant, two pyramidal shaped yoga studios and a sound dome.

    Over the next few months we will be completely renovating and we'd love your help. We are looking for experienced self-motivated individuals willing to commit for at least one month. If you are willing to help out with multiple jobs this would suit us best as we often have last minute jobs pop up that need an extra pair of hands.

    If you are looking for an opportunity to contribute to an inspiring project and you possess any of the following skils: reception, social media, event management, exceptional yoga teachers, carpentry, electrical, landscaping, and construction (with professional experience).

    In your request please attach the following:
    - Character reference (description of your self)
    - A resume and/or list of past experiences
    - Arrival and departure dates
    - Facebook contact
    - How you and your ideas can contribute to our project
