Volunteer at the International Raja Yoga centre
Raja Yoga centre – We are a group of family and friends who started together an adventure to create a small local co-living project. We look after animals in need, we have a big organic garden and we contribute to the local community through charity work and teaching languages. We have a healthy lifestyle, we practise a lot of sport and eat vegetarian. In addition, we organise regular lessons and conferences where anyone is welcome to join.
Update December 2022 – Looking for winter and new year volunteers | live a unique experience!
If your goals are a sustainable life, self-sufficiency, in harmony with nature, and what we would call “mental emancipation” (to think out of the box and find creative solutions to the problems that society brings to our life)…
We focus on 5 different areas:
- DIY and energy,
- mental independence,
- team spirit,
- training and self-defence.
We live surrounded by the forest in a big house, with an organic garden, rescued animals, and a big land to practice and enjoy the sun, workshops and activities.
Motivated and like-minded people with skills are welcome to join us in our adventure towards sustainability and team spirit: a modern and holistic life off the grid.
We are located in Czerwonak (Poland) surrounded by forests, in a completely natural environment.
The main town, Poznan, is not very far from us. Making our location accessible and at the same time protected by the forests around.
