We are looking for people to fill the following roles for the coming season:

Grounds person, Housekeeping


You will need to be able to work with a team of like-minded volunteers in an Ashram type environment.

In return, we offer a full exchange stay (after a short trial period) which includes an exchange of skills and time, for food, accommodation and teaching in yogic practices. We also offer the opportunity to attend retreats and training on specialised topics.
Anahata offers you immersion in to a daily yogic lifestyle which encompasses simplistic living, time out from the hustle and bustle of modern life, a healthy vegetarian diet and the most beautiful natural environment. We have a weekly schedule of yoga, meditation, chanting (sound vibration) and Kirtan (group chanting).

We consider applications from all ages and backgrounds, including both NZ residents and overseas visitors (with the appropriate Visa and written and verbal English skills). Previous yoga experience is not essential, however, a desire to learn about yoga and to be an integrated member of the Anahata community while you are here, is important.

You will need to be available to start in September and be willing to commit for 1 year.
If you are unable to stay for this length of time or do not have the skills required for this role, please email us to find out more about our Karma Yogi stays and other opportunities that are available.

For an application form please email yoga at anahata-retreat.org.nz.
