Eco Yoga Farm
(Cartago, Valle del Cauca, Colombia)
volunteering in Colombia
Our Volunteer program is specially designed for those who want to experience an eco friendly way of life; you can take part in sustainable activities, such as organic farming, eco building, vegetarian cooking, etc., while at the same time experiencing the quietness and harmony afforded by yoga and meditation.
Volunteers work for 4 1/2 hours a day in sustainable activities during the morning. Teaching Art, English, Sports and Ecology at the local primary schools is part of our volunteering program for those who wish to participate. In the afternoon they are free to take part in the farm’s activities (hatha yoga, meditation, music therapy with oriental instruments, pranayama programme, movies, etc.), or simply relax, read a book, take a walk through the surrounding rural environment, play soccer with the locals or take a boat ride and swim in the Cauca river.
All year around, volunteers from all over the world come to the farm to discover their skills, get in contact with mother earth, help us improve our local community, get to know new people, learn Spanish and enjoy nature and the experience of living in our community.
Please note that we request our visitors and volunteers to abstain from intoxicants and extramarital relationships to preserve the sanctity of the project.
The farm is also a Yoga Ashram, every day you can take part in hatha yoga classes that enables you to harmonize mind, body and spirit, you are also invited to practice meditation with oriental instruments to help you connect with your inner self, and learn about the most ancient Indian teachings in our classes on Vedic philosophy.
The farm has several comfortable rooms (singles, doubles or triples), blankets and sheets are provided, there is access to an inside and outside shower as well as common areas.
The farm has its own organic lacto-vegetarian/vegan organic restaurant, with an excellent and tasteful menu of Latinoamerican and Indian dishes. The volunteer program includes full board (breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner).
