About Karma Yogis
Karma Yogis practice four hours of Karma Yoga (action with meditative awareness in the spirit of selfless service) 5 days per week with the afternoons free to relax and recharge. Practicing Karma Yoga at Anahata provides the opportunity to grow personally and spiritually. As a Karma Yogi, having enthusiasm and a sincere interest in experiencing a yogic lifestyle is important and full attendance of practices and sessions is highly recommended. This immersion into a yogic lifestyle is an amazing opportunity to take time out of the daily hustle and bustle and enter into a more balanced space. You will leave with the knowledge of what it truly means to live simply and in tune with the natural rhythm of nature and ‘Self’.
Karma Yogi Investment
Initial commitment of 4 weeks at a rate of $30/day to give you chance to get to know the flow of Anahata; after this period we can discuss a longer-term stay with the potential of a full work exchange if it’s a good fit!
Community lunch, access to shared pantry, shared accommodation and all programmes inclusive
Life at Anahata
Most days we have a morning Hatha Yoga Sadhana including mantra, pranayama, asana & meditation. Five days per week, we do 4 hours karma yoga in one of our retreat departments (for example garden, kitchen and housekeeping). Every Saturday we have Havan, an ancient fire ceremony, followed by Kirtan, singing mantras to music. There are also other classes such as yin yoga, yoga nidra, sharing circles, and more, depending on who is on-site.
We are open to discussing individual circumstances and your needs based on your skills and length of commitment to being at Anahata. Longer-term preferred and remuneration and/or trades for yoga education may be possible for longer commitments. If you feel this is the right opportunity for you, please contact us on email@example.com for an application. If your application is successful, we will contact you for an interview. Please only apply if you are currently in NZ or have an NZ passport or permanent residency.
