Karma yoga: Experience of a lifetime

Our karma yoga program invites volunteers who bring passion, commitment and a sense of adventure to our retreat for 3-6 month placements. They help out and co-create this incredible space within our seasonal conscious community. In addition to helping support the day-to-day tasks that keep the retreat running, projects include developing our permaculture vegetable garden, labyrinth and meditation gardens, the teahouse and conscious living centre. If they’re adequately qualified, karma yoga volunteers can also co-develop workshops and offer yoga classes or professional spa treatments to guests.

Spend a season living and working within our conscious forest community through our karma yoga program – limited spaces, apply now!

Slide We got such a warm, friendly welcome and they really do go out their way to be there to meet & greet you (you’ll understand just how much when you go). - Forest tipi, April 2018 Slide Forest Tipi was magical - thank you! Cadair Idris took us 4.5 hours, up and down the Minford Track, and a hot bath under the trees was PERFECT afterwards! - Forest tipi, August 2018 Slide This has been such a lovely place to relax and escape the everyday life. We had such an amazing time and will definitely come back again! We highly recommend the walk up the hill past the farmhouse, beautiful views! Thank you – see you again soon! - Waterfall tipi, May 2018 Slide What a wonderful place. We had everything we needed to enjoy a peaceful relaxing holiday. Perfect way to spend our first anniversary. Hosts very welcoming and happy to share walking tips. Will most definitely be back. - Waterfall tipi, May 2018

How it works:

We offer accommodation in return for 20 hours of karma yoga (volunteering) per week per individual. This leaves plenty of time to explore the area and focus on your own spiritual practice and contemplation. We welcome couples or friends as accommodation is based on two people sharing. Simple accommodation is provided. Karma yoga volunteers need to provide their own food. Revenue-share for classes and treatments offered by karma yogis can be discussed.

What we are looking for:

Applicants should have a passion for sustainable living and follow their own spiritual practice. They should bring relevant skills such as permaculture design, yoga teaching, massage or other natural healing practices, relevant workshop content, natural building, vegetable production, vegetarian cooking and more professional experience and abilities in alignment with our mission and vision. Volunteers must bring a willingness to pitch in with the daily tasks that ensure the retreat can run and improve. An ability to work together with owners and other karma yoga volunteers within our seasonal conscious community is a must. Experience traveling and living in challenging conditions such as those found off grid or in developing countries is helpful. A willingness to disconnect from the digital universe is also essential as we have limited phone signal on site and no electricity available for laptops or phones – unless of course you want to bring solar chargers. A good level of fitness is necessary to navigate our large and hilly site. A positive attitude in the face of challenges and a huge spirit of adventure are essential!
