Namaste and Bonjour :) We need help in June and July only as our 2017 is now over. We need help prior the retreat in May, June with building a green house and gardening, maybe minor wood repair and construction project. But the yoga activities starts only in July. Then in July to make juice and tea and breakfast,and mainly cleaning and maintaining the grounds (water pants, feed birds, clean cabins, clean the yoga space). Handy man and couple welcome :) We need help 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. In exchange you will be provided a room in a cabin and vegan meals during your stay. You can attend the yoga classes in you free time if there is space or I can give you private class too. We have meditation, yoga, sound healing and personal development classes at every retreat . If you are a massotherapist or can give any healing one to one session , that could be a way for you to earn extra money. The place located 4 hours from Montreal is my family hunting and fishing lodge, which I rent 1 month in the summer for Yoga retreats. It is beautiful, by the river, we have canoes and kayaks, waterfalls close by, nature trails all around! The place is secluded and completely immersed by nature, 60 km away from the first town, so either you come with your car or we coordinate for transport, cause no public transportation come here. We have electricity, internet and tv by generator, which works around 5-6 hours per day, depending on customers needs. There are 6 cabins total and 2 dogs on site. We speak mainly French, but I also English and Spanish. We will be around 5 people to live there for 1 month and are expecting groups of 10 to 15 people every retreats :) Thanks for your interest !
