There are many reasons to motivate yourself to Volunteer. At Bhakti Yoga School we have Ashrams (spiritual centers) where you will have the opportunity to give and contribute from the heart within a yogic context from the temples of Indian mysticism.
Becoming a Volunteer is a personal decision. Within Yoga it is said that serving others is one of the highest actions that a Soul can perform and that it can also benefit you in many other ways:
During your stay as a volunteer, your tasks will include cooking or assisting in the kitchen, cleaning the spaces, organic gardening, helping us with the general maintenance of the Ashram, computer work, among many others.
There is also the possibility of teaching Languages, Art, Yoga or any other skill or knowledge you have. We are open to knowing your skills and what you are inspired to share with us!
Volunteers are invited to participate in the Morning Program: Mantra Meditation, Pranayama (breathing exercises) and Kirtan (devotional chants). You can also participate in the Yoga Class in the afternoons.
The cost of the Volunteer Program also includes your accommodation (in shared rooms) and 3 vegetarian meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner). In addition, you will also have short periods of time to connect with a peaceful and harmonious atmosphere that you can use to carry out other personal activities; the average daily service time is 4 to 5 hours.
Respect the peaceful atmosphere of the Center by choosing positive actions, words and attitudes.
All Ashram participants agree to be punctual in the morning for the meditation and yoga program.
This is a 100% alcohol, cigarette and drug free space. We encourage and invite you not to drink, smoke, drink coffee or use drugs during your stay so that you can get the most out of your stay here.
This is a lacto-vegetarian home. We ask that you do not consume animal products (except dairy products) while on the premises. No meat or egg on the property.
We ask that you treat this space as a temple and keep public spaces and your room clean. This includes the type and volume of your music and keeping your personal belongings out of public spaces.
We practice noble silence between 9:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.
We close the main gate of the Ashram at 8:30pm
If you are participating in an Ashram program you can decide to go out in the afternoons or evenings. However we recommend you to focus on the yoga course and to follow the vegetarian, caffeine and drug free lifestyle even outside the Ashram.
If you have any difficulty with someone from the center (volunteer, student or teacher) or a personal problem, please talk to someone from the team as soon as the problem arises. Difficulties between people in a group are usually cases of misunderstanding or lack of communication and can be easily resolved.
This Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity that will allow you to contribute your grain of sand, collaborating in a space dedicated to sharing practices of well-being and spiritual growth.
We will be very happy and grateful to receive you at any of our Ashrams!
Just remember that an Ashram is a spiritual and vegetarian space, so the consumption of meats (including poultry, fish and eggs), stimulants or intoxicants, cigarettes and alcohol within the facilities are strictly prohibited.
