  • Descrição

    Descrição

    We are two yoga teachers who run a non-profit on St Thomas in the Virgin Islands. We teach yoga to kids and adults in the community and sailing/mindfulness for youth throughout the Caribbean. Due to coronavirus many of our programs are limited so we have been more focused on our home projects.

    We are looking for some help fixing/renovating our hurricane damaged home. We’re currently focused on getting shutters ready for hurricane season, and fertilizing the terraces/garden. We are open to any builders, farmers, gardeners, composters, or any other greenworking/lightworking people staying with us. We have rooms available for volunteers with shared shower, kitchen and living space.

    During off time volunteers enjoy hanging out at the house, playing games, exploring the island, visiting local beaches, hiking nearby, tasting the local cuisine, and making shared meals.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    We love to practice yoga, hang out at the beach, and we often run errands throughout the week so we can always coordinate dropping you off somewhere along the way. Many volunteers hitch, walk, or take safaris around the island. It is possible although expensive to rent a car, and our neighbor runs a safari taxi (~$10-20) to get to most places around the island.

    You can learn about tropical vegetation, free diving or scuba diving, holistic wellness/healing, terracing/growing food and home renovation.

    Tyler is a sailor who was born and raised here so you will get to have a very locally guided experience. We love home cooked vegan/vegetarian meals and getting to know new friends!

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    We have an apartment with a shared bathroom, kitchen and living space that workaways can share. We split beds up by gender so that single workawayers of the same gender can room together, or if a bedroom is free, a couple can have their own private bedroom. We also have camping gear if you'd like to be outside on the property :) The house is on a mountaintop overlooking the ocean and the British Virgin Islands, St John and a few smaller islands.

    We don't provide meals but you are welcome to the community rice, pantry items, and any vegetables in the garden. We will help you get to a grocery store upon arrival. Liz sometimes gets the urge to whip up a big vegan lunch and we all eat together.

    Algo mais...

    In your time off hang out at the house and get to know your fellow volunteers, walk to the beach, explore the island, go sailing or boating, take a diving course, hop on a ferry to St John, hike or enjoy the day at the house. Lots of beaches, snorkeling, food, local fruit, water activities, interesting people, yoga classes, spiritual gatherings, and more.

    The beach is a 25 minute hike from the house. There is a safari line that connects the rest of the island once you're in town. We're happy to take you with us when we drive there (which we typically do every week).
