I am open to different destinations at the moment, and currently based in London and Frankfurt,
About me and what
- Hatha Yoga Teacher, meditator, guitarist, singer, vegan, reiki, massage, I enjoy cooking, practical renovation and construction work, and learning these things..
I am outgoing, friendly, enjoy jokes and deep philosophy , music, jamming, nature, hikes, swimming.
I have a business, sales and marketing background before I quit in Nov 2016. I have good customer service skills, I enjoy connecting with people and making them feel welcome and looked after especially..
My volunteering since nov 2016 has included many things. Driving the homeless in London, Cooking for refugees in Greece, and coordinating that project as well for a month. Permaculture farm - check out my blog for a piece I wrote on it. Most of the past year I have spent in two yoga schools where I have been applying and learning Karma Yoga - the Yoga of Selfless Action - so i have been cooking and cleaning, doing construction..
Building wise I have experience rendering, pointing, working with pallets, helped build a basic meditation room, basic insulation and flooring in a roof. I am learning more to measure better and use a jigsaw at the moment, mixing cement, keeping everything clean daily. I also built a stone wall..
My experience with this stone wall and the pointing I did has given me the enthusiasm to learn how to build properly.
I also love animals.
I speak a little Spanish, French and German now, English is my native language.
I worked in recruitment in london, good business experience. I was a manager and a coach.
At the moment I am looking for projects where I can learn to build using natural materials, or renovating a stone house. Also I would prefer an environment conducive to mediation and yoga.. and I need a bed in a room at the moment. I cannot do a tent .. well i could do a tipi or bell tent or yurt for sure!
Ideally - No drugs or alcohol, although at the moment i do smoke a bit..
My goals are to learn how to build and locate a patch of land that I can build on, near a river. Then live there 6 months of the year and work for MSF (Medicin Sans Frontiers) the other 6 months. I would like to learn, write, share, record, perform music, and I would like to develop my spiritual yoga and buddhist practice and share this also through organising retreats more and more.. I feel also this business side of yoga and meditation is getting too middle class and its too much about the money and luxury and losing its depth in the process. I would like to run a donation only project / retreat for example.
I also cycled from London to the Algarve recently..
And I co-own a red van based in Frankfurt at the moment..
