  • Description

    Description

    We are a Peruvian - South African couple. After living all over the world we decided in 2018 to settle in the Sacred Valley and start a eco lodge & yoga centre located in Urubamba.

    Our concept revolves around sustainability and green & conscious living. We have an organic vegetable garden and we practice principles of permaculture to make our space as self-sustainable as possible.

    We are located in the rural side of Urubamba, 25 min walking distance from town where you can find the main market, coffee shops and restaurants.

    This is a great opportunity to learn more about yoga, health, conscious food, organic farming and medicinal plants.

    If this sounds appealing to you we would love to hear from you.

    We are looking for musicians, artists, gardeners, marketers, carpenters, and socializers who can interact with our guests. We are looking for 24hours work per week.

    During the exchange we may ask for help with gardening, dog sitting, taking guests on hikes, making fires... just a little help here and there to lighten our workload. Depending on your skills and experience we can assign you a small project.

    Tell us a little bit about how you could contribute to our centre and we would be glad to have you. We will consider people who have a mature mindset and who are self motivated.
