Karma Yoga Program

Karma Yoga

Yogah Karma Su Kaushalam / Yoga is skillfulness in action.

Karma Yoga can be practiced from the start of the day to its end. It is an opportunity to do any action in a mindful, skillful and harmonious way. Enjoying the present moment, without expecting any fruit or reward. The fruit is in the presence and joy of living this moment.

The act of offering our services without searching for a reward purifies the heart, developing humility, sympathy, tolerance, compassion and love.

Karma: action, Yoga: union or integration.

This program is been designed for people interested in doing a long term retreat in which to stablish a daily yoga and meditation practice, and cultivate mindfulness in the everyday tasks.

We mainly need support in our kitchen and housekeeping departments but depending on the skills and the length of the stay of each participant, they might also be trained in to help in such tasks as gardening, DIY, translations, office, etc.
