Welcome to our yoga school, currently in the developmental stages; a sustainability school. Focused on developing sustainable practices in both the internal and external world.

External sustainability is referring cultivation of organic food as well as other basic need such as cooking, maintenance, and firewood. This is done with permaculture principles in mind.

Internal sustainability is referring cultivating a stability of body and mind by using a full range of Yogic principles and practices. Taking place both in a “class-room” setting as well as mindfulness in action while tending daily duties in the garden, kitchen, household chores, child minding, painting, maintenance, firewood etc.

The current goals in order to establish this project as a “school” are:
- for myself to become, or someone to join the project as, a “qualified" yoga teacher
- to build a floor and surrounding garden area for my yurt built by “Jaia Tipi’s” to act as main practice room.
- to market the school towards both; current customers of the lodge and to developing a new audience via the internet and networking with other yoga school in nz.

Hello, my name is Jesse Brand and welcome to my project, branching off from running restaurant/motel/backpackers in a town called Tuatapere. After being involved in the lodge (owned by my good friend) for many years i have purchased 6 aches and a house next-door, to expand our existing gardens and to develop my interests in a yogic school. I have been studying yoga and spirituality for over 10 years.

I am also a preforming singer/songwriter and have a keen passion to work together with any musicians/singers/beat-makers/producers!!!

Also a single a father of 8 year old boy and 5 year old girl. There mother also lives here in town and the kids are living in both houses. Help with the kids, the household and painting etc. are main jobs at the moment and welcome anyone with an interest in yoga/spirituality and/or music to fill this role.

I am especially seeking anyone with interest in helping develop the school, including skills such as:?- yoga teacher
- meditation experience
-spiritual exploration
- vegetarian cooking
- website design
- marketing
- building
- landscaping

Hoping to hear from you soon; Just follow the Light..
