  • Description


    We have 2 projects that we hold dear to our hearts. We started with Surf, Spanish, Yoga School with an Organic Cafe and added a holistic school for Children.

    This has grown leaps and bounds and we have a strong team that we love. However we are growing and are looking for guest yoga teachers. We have opened up a special class for travelling yoga teachers. Please dont email we are only booking teachers on the spot. A certification from either Yoga Alliance or similiar organization is required in order to be on the rooster. There are a max of 3 classes per week per teacher (it is a payed position) with a max of a month stay.
    Feel free to stop by and ask for more info.

    Here is some more info
    Along with offering surf classes and rentals, yoga classes and workshops, Spanish classes we also have a small cafe that offers, desserts, speciality coffees, juices, tea. We are trying to provide different services not taking away from any other locals business but contributing to the overall growth of the community. We don't have rooms which allows us to work with every business in town and more equally importantly gives us our evenings free.

    We have one yoga class 7 days a week 9am-10:30. We also offer private classes and these are usually done in the evenings.

    During the remainder of our day we have Spanish classes from 11-5. At the moment we have 10 local teachers who work on contract for us. The cafe is open 10:30-7 as well. Surf classes occur depending on tide and swell. At the moment we have one permanent surf instructor along with my husband but in the high season we had up to 3 teachers working at one time.

    This is a beautiful project that grew out of a need for a better type of education for our children and with each year the program is opening more families to the idea of alternative education.
    For the 2019/2020 school year we do have a full time teacher but we are looking for a teachers assistant.

    Our moto
    It is about living in the moment, moving forward and enjoying who and where you are, reconnecting your mind, body and soul. We have created a space where people can come together not only for abroad but also in the community.

    Owners Profile
    We are a family with small children 7 and 4, we have 3 cats and 1 dog. My husband and I are originally from Canada but have been living in Ecuador for over 12 years. The school has been open since 2010 and each year it gets better and better. We have a great team and are always looking for ways to learn and grow.

    We have just recently opened a children's school , it is an alternative school based on a mix of waldorf principles and child based learning or inquire based learning. The curriculum is in english. The school day is Monday to Friday 8:30 to 12:30 with a weekly 1 hr meeting every friday. Our school year is from September to the June. We are looking for 1 full time teachers assistant starting in January 2020 for a min of 2 months. We are looking for a volunteer that has experience teaching children whether this is in a traditional classroom setting or something less traditional, such as Forest School. We would love the volunteer to have experience teaching yoga for children as we incorporate pranayamas, mantras and asanas in the classroom. Our curriculum uses art, music, dance, surf and lots and lots of fun. There is social media work as well.

    If you are interested please message us

    The exchange is a private room, shared bathroom and full kitchen, free yoga classes, free surf classes and 25% discount in our organic cafe.
    We are looking for open minded individuals who are love children and want to share the wonders of the world with them. Our school is located on the beach with a beautiful cloud forest behind us. We want to take the children out into nature and explore.
