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 and nutrition, environmentally friendly construction/design projects, yoga, meditation, philosophy, and working with art and educational programs for the children living in and around the community. You can also bring your creative energies to our workshops, make new friends, and have the experience of a lifetime.

Our ashrams are trying to be self sufficiant centers of conscious art and environmentally constructive. All situations are depending on our friends and the volunteers. Expect the need of improvisation. You are responsible for yourself. If you are not healthy please report your condition. If you want to heal yourself from some addiction, inform us to recommend the best place for it. Right of volunteer service depends on local ashram directors acceptance and can be cancelled at any time. Usually one month is minimum, but shorter period is also possible.

While a volunteer in the ashram refrain from smoking, drugs and be a vegetarian. thanks :)

I understand this is an ngo and focuses on volunteering. I was under the assumption that this is free... work for board and food. Am I correct? This looks really awesome and would love to join!

These articles are fantastic; the information you show us is interesting for everybody and is really good written. It’s just great!! Do you want to know something more? Read it...: Great investment opportunity in lots in Costa Rica

Marta said...

Are volunteers mainly young white north americans? Or is there an even mixture from people all over the world?

ReneeMarie said...

To Marta,
I was on the farm and I am black from N. America. There was a mixture from USA and Europe. I had a wonderful time and plan to go back again. Hope this answers your question.

evans13 said...

hello,

I would also be interested in visitinng the farm but how do I get there? I am from Europe so I will fly to Buenos Aires and then?

Thank you in advance! :-)

ReneeMarie said...

Hello Evans13,
I recommend contacting Thakur at elthakur@yahoo.com for more detailed directions. But you can take a taxi there which would be expensive or a cheap route is to take the train and bus. It is about an hour away.
Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Ciro W Romero said...

Does anyone know how to reach Eco Yoga Park by bus or train?

Kimberly said...

I love how the little place in the dark with all the lights looks. From the pictures I can say that you have a very nice connection with nature and wildlife. When I travelled to Argentina, I got buenos aires apartments and stayed in the comfortable zone. Now I want to experience a different trip, in the middle of nowhere. I saw that weather is really nice in this time of the year. I´ll do it!

These articles are fantastic; the information you show us is interesting. Share something about Gatwick meet and greet

Jenna Catlin said...

travelling becomes an even more fun when one gets indulges into such recreational & adventurous activities, there is no doubt in the fact that one needs to be mentally satisfied to enjoy every moment during trips and this could be done by making a secure car park at Meet and Greet Birmingham

carla grace said...

If i weren't convinced by the article, the pictures surely did the job. Will consider for sure. gatwick meet and greet

perry cole said...

Traveling becomes painful when the worries of what to do with the car are taking all the time that you should be spending mooning over the happy anticipation of your journey. gatwick valet parking

This post is not updated I've been there this year and I had an awful experience, I was really dissapointed. Please update the info. The picture of the restaurant is very nice but it does no longer exist. They have an ugly and dirty dinning room instead.
