    Our center is nestled into the jungle area of Puerto Viejo: an original, reggae, surf town on the southern tip of Costa Rica. This is both a jungle lodge as well as a yoga retreat and training center. The location offers ocean views, wildlife interaction, organic farming, easy access to the bustling city below, as well as ample room for relaxation.

    Puerto Viejo itself is a close community that enjoys embracing nature throughout the day, whether that be a $1 bus-ride to one of the neighboring National Parks in Manzanillo or Cahuita or a relaxing day on one of the local beaches (ie. Playa Negra or Cocles). At night the city sparks with a fire show at local bars or live music performed by local artists.

    The goal of our center is to provide an organic, safe, sanctuary to reconnect with yourself and nature. There are many ways of doing so here!

    Depending on what position you are placed in you will learn: marketing skills for the wellness field, meet members of the local wellness community, learn organic gardening skills, get sneak peeks at the back end of the retreat, yoga studio, and yoga teacher training industry, learn about alternative parenting/childcare in the Caribbean.

    You will interact with 3 to 5 local, full-time employees and be managed by these workers in your educational volunteer activities.

    Helping out here will broaden your perspective. With a relaxing environment you will understand the value of connecting with yourself in nature as well as how to interrelate with others around you in a gracious, compassionate way.

    Puerto Viejo will expose you to the tranquility of slowing down and indulging in activities that you may not otherwise have time for, whether that be reading a book or gazing out toward the horizon while listening to the ocean waves. Nightlife sparks the inner fire of Puerto Viejo. You will learn to embrace the shakti of true living, the vibrancy of letting go of inhibitions.
