Join our Skills Exchange Program and be a part of our team!

Join a team of people dedicated to self-growth, transformation, and sustainability at Anahata Yoga Retreat, Golden Bay, New Zealand.

Anahata is a Charitable Health and Education Trust where we live and share a yogic lifestyle dedicated to Self-transformation through service. We uphold a regular rhythm of yoga asana, meditation, relaxation, chanting and other yogic practices. We are an off-grid property that values sustainability and we are constantly evolving to work in harmony with nature.

Over the summer months, our Education Centre will offer Yoga Lifestyle Courses, Teacher Trainings, and Sadhana Retreats. At other times of the year, we are open to Venue Hires from other groups.

At this time we are looking for dedicated people to fill key roles for the summer season and beyond. These are non-paid positions. You will receive shared accommodation, meals, and daily yoga practices in exchange for your skills and commitment.

There is a 1-month initiation and trial period for all Skills Exchange positions. During this time you will participate in our Yoga Lifestyle Program for your first two weeks. This is to introduce you to our community and our ashram-based lifestyle. If we are a good fit, then the following two weeks will be spent getting to know your specific role. It’s a great way for us to get to know each other – so that at the end of the first and second two-week periods we can both be having honest conversations.

There are so many good things to say about this opportunity and the benefits you could be receiving here at Anahata. There is lots more to tell – we would love to hear from you!

We are open to discussing individual circumstances and your needs based on your skills and length of commitment to being at Anahata. Longer-term is preferred and remuneration and/or trades for Yoga Education may be possible for commitments beyond the summer season.

If you feel this is the right opportunity for you, please contact us on yoga@anahata-retreat.org.nz for an application.

**Please note- this is NOT a pathway to New Zealand residency. We do not provide work visas and this is not a work exchange program. You must be a NZ/AU citizen or permanent resident, or you must have an appropriate visa to be in NZ in order to participate in this program.
