We invite those who are enthusiatic about creating a yoga retreat from its foundation.
Our "Eco Yoga Retreat " is strategically located in the Sacred Valley of Cusco, (3,000 m above sea level), one hour south of Cusco by Bus and 20 min. from Pisac. The nearest town, San Salvador, is only 10 minutes away from the Land. There are some small shops closer where you can buy needed items. Internet access is a 10 minute walk to the nearest town of Vicho. For international calling and laundry services, you can go to Pisac (20 min.) or to Cusco (one hour).
Currently there is no electricity (we use candles) and water is used in a rural state.
Our goal is to create an Eco Yoga Community where people can encounter a spiritual environment, where the priciples of a yogic life style can be practiced. Yoga classes and retreats are offered along with workshops in diverse arts and holistic sciences, organic gardening and ecological building.
As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to experience a different culture and way of living. Volunteer positions include helping with and learning about vegetarian cooking, organic agriculture, environmentally friendly construction/design projects, yoga, meditation, philosophy.
You can also bring your creative energies to our project.
The Eco Yoga Community is a place for living with nature, doing yoga and practicing spanish. It also offers you an opportunity to meet and connect with others who are on their spiritual journey and share your life experiences.
While a volunteer in the Eco-Farm we ask that you refrain from smoking, alcohol and practice vegetarianism.
