    Keen to practice yoga and live life the eco way in the remote Scottish countryside? We’re looking for volunteers to come help at our Yoga Retreat Centre in Scotland. So if you’re friendly, energetic, cheerful and hardworking then come join the team!

    We can't wait for you to join us in this Scottish yoga work exchange project!

    ROLE: GENERAL HELPER - INDOOR AND OUTDOOR TASKS TO HELP IN THE DAILY RUNNING OF THE CENTRE.

    Sorry, no couples, no pets :-(

    You will be joining a friendly and vibrant team of like-minded individuals who all thrive on making the yoga centre a beautiful place to live, work and learn. We all try to make time for our own individual practice (Ashtanga, Iyengar, kundalini, vinyasa flow, meditation) and there are often opportunities to join the yoga classes with guest teachers.

    Duties involve cleaning, helping in the kitchen, in the garden, with guests and generally being enthusiastic by helping with all the tasks required to keep our busy centre running smoothly. Great if you’re up for learning new skills!

    As part of the work exchange, all food and accommodation is included, along with use of the centre’s facilities (hot tub, sauna, outdoor baths) and use of our yoga studio. We want you to feel at home here, just like our guests do!

    Non-smokers only.

    Owning/driving a car would be most useful, but not necessary.

    Please note...we would like to meet you on Skype/FaceTime?WhatsappVideo as an initial getting to know you...

    WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR YOGA TEACHERS ;-}

    Look forward to hearing from you,

    Nick, Rachel, Tim and all the team
