Dear friends,
We are a small Yoga Ashram near the beach and have two meditation huts in the garden available for someone to stay in, who would like to experience living in this environment. An ashram is a place for working on self-development and social harmony, through practising various kinds of yoga, including the exercises, relaxation & breathing techniques, meditation, selfless service (Karma Yoga), chanting and prayers. You would be able to benefit from all of these practices in exchange for a few hours of daily household duties such as cooking (vegetarian), gardening, cleaning, office work, and other simple tasks which may arise day to day. Also some building work if you have skills. We are looking for 1 or 2 people possibly for up to 1 month of staying here.
The food is included, but only twice a day and during weekends we ask everyone to participate on preparations of meals.
We also sk everyone to follow the vegetarian (no eggs) diet while being at our ashram.
We are 5 min from the beach, which extends up the coast for 42km, so lot of walking can be done if you would like to. Also on the other side we are surrounded by hills, not very high but enough to have a good steep walk exercise. Generally it is very nice location here, only 1 hour driving from Wellington and yet with the feel of being outside the town in clean and quite environment.
