    Meditation and yoga

  • Description

    I am Helena, a 23 year old girl, climate activist, and in love with everything that smells green and feels sustainable. I do sports, and practice yoga; play music; and love vegan cooking and working in the garden.
    I am energetic, a fast learner and flexible. That's me in a nutshell :)
    I am currently on a bicycle trip, looking for communities, eco places, retreat centra, and volunteering on my route - for the moment through france spain and portugal and who knows where I will end up... A plan without a plan, to see where my wings bring me and where i leave some of my energy. maybe also to find a place where my heart resonates with and where i feel like staying. I am volunteering on my route to search for inspiring projects and learn more about spirituality, farming, sustainability, ... etc
    looking forward to exchange experiences :)

    some more about myself:
    * i am a certified yoga teacher and spirituality is important to me, but i also realized that spirituality and ecology can't be seen as distinct from one and another
    * i am a permaculture gardener and have experience with woofing on more than 20 different farms
    * i studied development cooperation in agriculture and did my thesis about composting toilets. compost in general is a passion of mine. heal the soil, not the plant!
    * i play the guitar and sing
    * i am vegan, make my healthcare products myself, buy only second hand.
    * i climb, cycle, do acrobatics, and yoga
    * i like board games and a good book
    * i have much experience in creative education through arts for kids and worked as a youth worker for 6 years as a volunteer
    * i know how to handle most tools and know basics of working with wood, bicycle repair, ... i dont have two left hands :)
    * i love crafting and arts, dreamcatchers my speciality :D
