  • Description

    Description

    I am a single mature female living right on the ocean front and living a quiet yogic lifestyle which means i am self sufficient, vegetarian, respectful of my natural environment and continue to teach yoga classes in my township of Opotiki
    Situated on the East Coast of North island NZ.
    Living consciously is my aim, and i am willing to share this concept with likeminded people who seek a retreat like experience while offerring some work in return.
    Private Yoga classes by arrangement are offerred and i am interested in meeting people of other cultures who value a healthy lifestyle .i prefer short term stays 3 to 7 days where you would be willing to offer 4 hours work per day in exchange for free accommodation and one cooked meal approx midday and self catering breakfast and supper.some meals shared together.
    (i request no late hour cooking).
    There is a basic set up with Kingsized bed, toaster, fridge and possibly microwave. Own bathroom inside the main house and shared kitchen in main house.
    I am conservative in water use and there is limited internet use offerred WI FI> Rubbish disposal is recycling (no collection)
    There is space for parking a van or caravan if you have your own sleeping area with you and i could also pick you up from the bus 12 kms from my location if you are travelling by public transport.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You would benefit by living in a fresh clean natural place of beauty beside the ocean and encouraged to live a peaceful life by adopting some yogic lifestyle skills if you are interested?
    Your cultural values would interest me and you would benefit from the peaceful environment of an uncrowded beach front with walking tracks to town adjacent.
