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 Yoga Retreat & Eco Lodge Farm 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.
We consider people that are willing to stay at least 1 month. However we consider shorter stays for skilled people.
If this sounds appealing to you we would love to hear from you.

Those who are interested will have the opportunity to learn more about organic farming, vermiculture, composting, herbs, medicinal plants, detox, Ayurveda and to deepen your yoga practice.
You will experience the rural Andean life. We speak Spanish, Quechua, English, German and Afrikaans. There are plenty of easy hikes around us and ancient archeological sites close by.
We are looking for volunteers with experience in the following fields: gardening, carpentry, painting, landscaping cooking, web development (Wordpress) and Marketing. 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.
We offer free accommodation and vegetables from our organic food garden depending on the harvest.
We have a fully equipped comunal kitchen available for you. We do have Wifi in some areas.
The volunteers will sleep in a dorm ( max 6 people ) with a private toilet and hot water. All bedding included.
Couples might get their own room, depending season and availability.
