We are inviting applications for our next intake of people to fill core roles at Anahata Yoga Retreat. Below is a list of the types of roles available. If you feel you have the necessary experience for any of these roles, please enquire to officemanager at anahata-retreat.org.nz for an application form.

Office / admin / graphic design
Gardening and landscaping
Building and carpentry
Food preparation/cooking
Qualified yoga teachers in the Bihar traditions


In return, we offer full exchange (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 specialized topics, and are also open to negotiate a small stipend for key positions after an agreed time period.

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, Yoga Nidra (psychic sleep), Meditation, Chanting (sound vibration), Havan (fire ceremony), and Kirtan (call and response singing).

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 willing to commit for 6+ months.

If you are unable to stay for this length of time or do not have the skills required for the roles, please email officemanager at anahata-retreat.org.nz to find out more about our Karma Yogi stays and other opportunities that are available.
