  • 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 and sailing/mindfulness for youth throughout the Caribbean.

    We are looking for some help fixing/renovating 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 people staying with us. We have two private master bedrooms (with private bathrooms) and a shared kitchen where you can live 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 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 is a sailor who was born and raised here so you will get a very local experience. We love home cooked vegan/vegetarian meals and getting to know new friends!

    Accommodation

    We have 2 master bedrooms (with shower and toilet) and a meditation/dorm room that are designated for workaway. They are joined together by a shared dining room, living room, kitchen and laundry room. We often split these bedrooms up by gender so that single workawayers can room together, or if one bedroom is free, a couple can have their own private room. We also have camping gear if you'd like to be outside on the property :)

    The house is on a cliffside overlooking the ocean and the British Virgin Islands, St John and a few smaller islands.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In your time off explore the Virgin Islands, go sailing or 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.

    The beach is a 20 minute hike from the house. There is a safari line that runs along most of the island, or we're happy to take you with us when we drive to town (which we typically do a few times a week.)
