Volunteering at our retreat center is a great way to meet new people from all over the world and offers you the chance to try out a new career without making a long-term commitment.Besides the working hours you will have enough freetime to explore the beautiful island, spend time at the beaches, go out for hikes, surfing, climbing or other activities.For a minimum stay in our team of 4 weeks we offer free accomondation and food for our volunteers.

Also the volunteer house is about a 5 minutes drive away from the center.We´re looking for openminded people with skills and experience in following fields of work in our center:

Help in the kitchen

No special previous experience necessary, but if you speak italian and german to be able to communicate with the chefs would be a great plus.

Ideally you have experience in Anusara Yoga, Vinyasa or Hatha-Flow. We are looking for a teacher who would love to teach Meditation and Yogaclasses as a part of “The Balaiana Sensations”
Alltogether a maximum of 16 hours per week. If teaching is not needed it would be welcomed to help the team where its needed like little help in the garden, tidying up the yogashala, decorating the restaurant, preparing the massage room, little help in the kitchen.
