The Salt Spring Centre of Yoga is an incredible place. We serve and play based on the principles and practices that empower peace, resilience and belonging.

Have you always wanted to live in an intentional community? Can you provide support with the daily maintenance, housekeeping, and/or kitchen requirements at a busy yoga centre?

This opportunity includes:

  • Shifts serving in one of our key service areas (maintenance, housekeeping, kitchen, farm)
  • Teaching experience for yoga teachers looking to increase their skills (200-hour teacher training required)
  • A room (may be shared) or campsite on on our beautiful, forested Salt Spring property
  • Vegetarian meals from our kitchen
  • Access to yoga classes, ceremonies, and community events
  • Inclusion in our supportive and welcoming community
  • Access to onsite laundry, wifi, and reading room
  • And more!

We typically require a minimum commitment of 2 months for all first-time volunteers.

About the Centre:

Many people experience a transformation while contributing their time and skills at the Centre and living in this pristine piece of land nestled in the heart of Salt Spring Island. You will be serving alongside people who are committed to exploration, spiritual practice and selfless service, and communing with the elders and founders of the Centre, who willingly share their wisdom and experiences from their own journeys. Overall, we strive to have a peaceful service environment where you are supported to become your best and whole self.
