  • Description

    Description

    We are two yoga teachers who run a non-profit on St Thomas in the Virgin Islands. We teach yoga to kids and adults in the community, recycle and compost for local businesses and hotels, and help with insurance and home repairs.

    We are looking for some help fixing the exterior of our home as it was damaged from the hurricanes. We are also open to any healers, teachers, builders, gardeners, composters, recyclers, or any other greenworking/lightworking staying with us. We have a separate apartment that you can live in while you are here. We hope it will be as magical for you as it is for us to get to know and grow together.

    Please feel free to join us for yoga/meditation classes, hanging out at the beach, hiking nearby, tasting the local cuisine, making home cooked meals and getting our hands into the earth/home.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love to go sailing, freediving, practice yoga, hang out at the cool beaches, and we work on many projects throughout the day so we can always take you along for some fun giving back to the community or drop you off at a nearby cool spot.

    Tyler was born and raised here so you will get a very local experience. We love home cooked vegan/vegetarian meals (we are cool with bringing home some local-caught fish too!) and getting to know new friends!

    In your time off explore the Virgin Islands, come sail with us, go ziplining, take a ferry to St John, hike, or enjoy the local lifestyle. Lots of beaches, great food, fruit trees, water sports, interesting people, yoga classes, spiritual gatherings, and more.

    There is a safari line that reaches most of the island, or we're happy to take you with us (we go into town daily)
