A Karma Yoga stay is the perfect way of combining work and private time. As a karma yogi you are a part of the Krishna Village community, working for a few hours per day while enjoying the benefits of having a lot of time to yourself to spend in yoga classes, meditate, get a massage or book a Life Coaching session.
The purpose of Karma Yoga
Karma yoga means to connect to the divine and the higher self through loving service and discipline of action. By volunteering a few hours per day to work in the Krishna Village gardens you experience a practical, down-to-earth method for spiritual growth: digging your hands in the ground, producing wonderful organic food and sharing your service with the community in a mood of love and kindness.
One of the fundamental principles behind the practice of karma yoga is that in life what you do doesn’t matter as much as your attitude while doing it. So when you serve with joy and an open heart you will become aware of the beauty of reciprocity: the wonderful energy flow of giving and receiving. This is a very valuable life lesson that will hopefully remain with you even after your stay at the Krishna Village.
The minimum stay for a karma yogi is one week. In return for 20hrs/work per week you pay a reduced rate for your accommodation (usually in a shared twin room) and get free food and access to yoga and all other classes at the Krishna Village. You work for 5hrs on 4 days/week during our usual work hours: 6.15am – 8.15am and 9:15am – 12pm.
