Join the team at Yoga Sutra Shala
If you love yoga and meditation; if you are a yoga teacher, a chef, and 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 working 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 team members - 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.
During your time with us you could...
We ask you to stay with us for a minimum of 12 months
and our preference is that you have some experience in preparing plant-based meals as well as a good understanding of the philosophy of yoga.
The retreat centre is open throughout the year.
Retreats run from Sunday to Friday and we have an average of 12 retreat guests.
Teacher Training courses run for 4 consecutive weeks, for a maximum of 8 trainees.
All events are conducted in English - though Spanish is also spoken here.
Team members each work around 30 to 40 hours per week and have 2 days off work every week
to rest and recuperate. There are also whole weeks off during the year.
In return we provide your full-time accommodation and while the retreat is open, your organic, plant-based meals and a modest allowance which you can easily save if you want to.
