Join the team at Yoga Sutra Shala
If you love yoga and meditation; if you are a yoga teacher, a chef, or an individual with an interest in healthy living; if you have good language skills, communication skills, and/or administration or management experience; if you want to contribute as a team member and share happiness with others, then we would love to have you here volunteering with us as a fellow Karma yogi*.
Yoga Sutra Shala is a unique and homely yoga retreat centre located in the beautiful Vall de Gallinera in the Valencian Community of Spain.
Our yoga students come to us from all around the world - as do our volunteers - which contributes well to the friendly, open-minded and positive environment that we wish to nurture here.
*A Karma yogi
fulfills their tasks selflessly
– for the good
of the whole;
to the deed
or the outcome;
doing the deed
for it’s own reward; with kindness, compassion and happiness.
Through a balance
of rest and action,
a Karma yogi improves
their knowledge of
the true Self.
As a volunteer
Our preference is that you stay with us for a minimum of 3 months.
The retreat is open from Sunday to Friday each week and we have an average of 12 retreat guests.
Retreats are conducted in English - though Spanish is also spoken here.
Team members each work around 30 hours per week and have
2 days off work each week (one of these being the whole of Saturday) to rest and recuperate.
"My actions are my only true belongings."

Our motivation is to make
a big positive change in peoples lives.
This can mean really hard work at times -
lots of responsibilities and commitments
and a need for emotional strength,
compassion and patience.
So please only apply if you really want to
- and are able to - dedicate yourself
to helping make these changes.
