  • Description


    Hello, me and my mother are in the process of building a yoga retreat centre in the archipelago of Stockholm, Sweden. We have two small houses and one yogashala house on our property. We opened up this retreat centre last year for retreats that has been amazing and this year we have about eight retreats and some more yoga courses planned already. In between retreat dates we have a few things to do here in terms of building, painting, gardening etc.

    The dates we need help for now is:

    18-27 October

    So mainly short term at the moment, since we are working in Stockholm during the weekdays except the some weeks here and there.

    If I don't answer and you really want to come, please send another message closer to the dates you want to come, preferably about 2 weeks before if that's possible for you.

    Exchange: You'll get your a place to stay, all meals of course! Max 5 hours of work with preparation & some breaks included in that time;) Check our reviews to get a clearer picture of this place!

    Please, write about you and your experience that could benefit in this type of work (building and gardening) in your message.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Being close to nature and working with organic materials is the best. We love to do it and we hope you will too. We need an extra hand and would love to have someone here who would like to work in exchange for learning how to build stuff, getting free and healthy food cooked by us or together. All meals included. Just like a working retreat, getting the mind in peace with nature.

    You'll get your own house upstairs by the yogashala to share with another workawayers (if more than you). There is two rooms there! So depending on the number of workawayers, you'll get your own room.

    If you're from abroad Arlanda Airport is closest by for you to fly to. Let me know when you arrive and I can help you find a good bus to the retreat! The cheapest way is to travel by local transport: download the app called "SL" to see time schedule & prices. Our bus station station is called Glyxnäs (Norrtälje)

    On your free time you can go for walks in the forest or to the water. Go to the local cafe or another event happening on the island. Read a book, lie in the hammock, paint, bicycle making art etc.
