  • Description

    I'm from the UK. I'm a yoga teacher and writer with lot's of experience travelling and staying with different hosts. I did 4 months in France as a Workawayer / WWOOFer, 9 months in Reunion Island, 2 months in India and 3 months in Brazil!

    So, I have helped hosts with a number of different jobs, like organic farming, permaculture projects, marketing, child care, animal care, renovation, bed and breakfast/chambre d'hotes, art projects, teaching English and more.

    I'm tidy and like being part of the family/community that I am living with so I make sure to help out with the cooking, cleaning and general jobs that need doing in day to day living outside of the work hours. I have a positive attitude and am eager to share skills and time with others. I love to share my knowledge of Yoga.

    I love nature, I practice yoga and meditation and I am passionate about sustainable living.

    I am a writer / journalist, I've written an article in English and in French about my workaway experiences:

    I am coeliac so I must follow a strict gluten free diet. Normally it works fine because I can just prepare my own meals or help you with the cooking or even do all the cooking myself. It's normal for me so I know how to take care of myself! Also I am a vegetarian but I will eat fish if it is easier for you. I lived with a family doing workaway for 7 months (I was like their live-in babysitter) and they ate meat and gluten - there were no problems we just ate different meals or I cooked vegetarian gluten-free for everyone.
