    Description

    PROFILE: Welcome to our Loft Yoga Ashram. We are a spiritual oasis in the heart of central Auckland. We offer a unique cultural exchange for volunteers aged between 22-30, interested in exploring the science of yoga and meditation. Yoga is far more than just a workout. We offer the complete yoga lifestyle experience - meditation, a range of interactive workshops exploring ancient knowledge and techniques and cooking classes, to find connection and happiness in your everyday life.

    We are a non profit centre. We have a very diverse and dynamic community of volunteers such as: chefs, artists, teachers, tradesmen, musicians, students etc. Everyone can contribute in some way or the other to our team and take home a memorable experience. We are looking for volunteers who have a keen interest in experiencing yoga and meditation lifestyle on a deeper level.

    IMPORTANT: We want to make sure that you have the best experience while you are with us. Hence we request Workawayers to try out volunteering first and participate in our different front and back end activities (yoga , meditation, talks, university club activities, meeting lots of different people, cooking, administrative stuff and more).This is purely so you can have a taste of what we're all about and see if it's something you would enjoy continuing with!

    Trial period is from Tuesday evening 2:00 pm to Wednesday 9pm. For the trial period, we are happy to provide our volunteers with wholesome delicious vegetarian/vegan meals, but request them to find their own accommodation. If the trial is successful, then you can move into our accommodation on Thursday morning at 9:00 am. Please organise your travel plan accordingly.

    We have a minimum stay of 2 weeks. You are more than welcome to have a mutual discussion with the Loft manager if you would like to extend your stay.
