BE IN THE SPIRIT OF KARMA YOGA IN OUR BEAUTIFUL COMMUNITY IN THE HEART OF FRANCE
The spirit of Karma Yoga is an opportunity to deepen your practice of volunteer service. It allows you a full immersion into the Hridaya Community by practicing yoga and meditation with us as well as helping us with our internal operations. In addition to volunteering, you’ll play an integral part in holding a friendly space in the community, according to the Hridaya Yoga Vision.
As a volunteer, you’ll help in the spirit of Karma Yoga—the yoga of action. While practicing Karma Yoga, you detach from the fruits of your contribution, seeing your support as an offering in service to others and to all of existence. To get a feel for the experience, check out a blog post about Karma Yoga and life as a Karma Yogi at Longeval.
The Hridaya France Karma Yoga Program is full most of the time due to the low turnover of karma yogis and limited housing options at Longeval. Yet, if you feel the calling to come and serve for the minimum commitment (four and a half months) or longer, we encourage you to apply directly through the application form below. Once you have applied, you will be automatically on our waiting list for our next opening.
You are particularly encouraged to apply if you have the following experience/skills:
- Maintenance: general renovation, carpentry, plumbing, electrical work, etc.
