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.

prerequisite

 

The practice of Hridaya Meditation and Hatha Yoga is the foundation of our community. As it’s most harmonious to experience the Hridaya teachings before committing to volunteer here, you must complete the Hridaya Yoga Retreat: Module 1 Intensive or an on-site 10-Day Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat before you apply. We offer these courses in Longeval as well as at our center in Mexico.

Note that we occasionally need Karma Yogis or staff members with specific technical skills. In such cases, we may waive this prerequisite.

If you meet the above condition, we invite you to apply to volunteer via the link below.
