Karma Yogi Volunteer Program
Our Karma Yogi Volunteer program is one of the most special things about the Mystical Yoga Farm. We are so grateful to be able to provide an oppurtunity for seekers to experience life in the forest, off-the-grid, living in a community setting.
Our Karma Yogis help with almost everything around the farm, from holding workshops, teaching classes, setting up sacred spaces, planting and harvesting, greeting guests, farm tours, occasionally cooking, holding space for one another and contributing to the overall energy of the community by sharing their unique gifts and light with all who come to the farm.
In order to support us - supporting you, (and supporting the local community too!)
And to make our Karma Yogi Volunteer program possible, we do require a daily financial contribution from each person to contribute to their food costs.
We provide daily yoga and meditation, three epic vegan meals a day (homegrown and organic wherever possible), unlimited herbal teas, an abundance of workshops and ceremonies including temezcal, cacao medicine, sound healings, and accommodations.
In exchange we gratefully receive your financial contribution as well as 4-5 hours a day of your care and attention to farm tasks. This is not an ordinary volunteer position. You will certainly be changed by life at the Mystical Yoga Farm, and you will have opportunity to practice with many teachers, healers and friends from all the world over.
Our volunteer program has a one month minimum commitment. The first 2 months of volunteering are $10 USD a day.The third month of volunteering is $5 per day.
After three months of volunteering at the farm, each Karma Yogi will have learned all the ins and outs of how to keep things running smoothly, and your love and care will be greatly appreciated. After three months of volunteering, each Karma Yogi can talk with Farm about other ways you can contribute to the farm and help our community blossom.
The Mystical Yoga Farm is off the grid, solar powered, and we grow lots of our own food. We have 11 local Tzutujil Mayan staff who are the heart of the farm, and they are the Guardians of the land. We feel grateful to count on such an amazing group of loyal workers and friends, some who have been here since the very start of the Mystical Yoga farm.
Things to Consider
We wholeheartedly create and maintain a healthy and sustainable environment for our community and guests and we expect the same from you throughout your time here.
The farm operates from a high vibration and we ask that you serve the farm with love and an open heart.
This is a place for people to deepen their personal practices and come together as a group, for healing, growth and celebration.
For our volunteer team, we need team members who are independent enough to progress with tasks solo, with instructions from the farm Management. We also need team members who can create magic and collaborate with a group and who are willing to contribute or help with farm needs as they arise, even if they are not related to your specific project.
We are a peaceful community and we do not consume alcohol at the Mystical Yoga Farm.
We offer unique immersive life changing volunteer opportunities. We function as a community, a family, a team united through a common goal of service and helping others.
We do not have WIFI at the farm and encourage all to disconnect (digitally) to reconnect (spiritually).
If you need to have access to the internet, you may purchase a local sim card with TIGO which can receive 4g signal by the lakes edge.
We follow a vegan diet at the farm, we do not consume animal products, with the exception of local honey available for sale from our local bees
We live among nature and we are peaceful with all of the critters and creatures of the natural world.
We have many people who apply to volunteer with us, and only a limited amount of space available. For this reason, it is important for us to get to know Who You Are, to ensure that all who we accept into our volunteer program are in alignment with our values and will be a positive contribution to our team. Please take your time and answer our short questionnaire by copying and pasting the below questions (and your answers) into the contact form below. Please answer in as much detail as you can. Gracias and Namaste
