VOLUNTEERING AS A YOGA TEACHER IN CAMBODIA[social_warfare]
In October 2015 I have been volunteering as a yoga teacher in Cambodia at Banteay Srey Spa in Kampot. In this post I’ll give you a bit more information about my job.
About Banteay Srey Spa in Kampot
Banteay Srey is not a normal spa but a non-profit project, which offers young Cambodian women from difficult backgrounds an escape from poverty and helplessness. In the spa they are taught job and entrepreneurial skills, giving them better life-chances. They get accommodation and food at the spa as well as a lot of training (including yoga and English-lessons taught by the volunteers). The spa is open to women only and offers all spa services you could wish for: massages, scrubs, steam bath, facials, manicure and pedicures, even henna tattoos and hair styling. Everything is really affordable – plus they use their own hand-made oils, creams and scrubs. It also offers a vegetarian cafe with yummy healthy food and fresh smoothies and a yoga deck. Yoga classes are offered at 9:30 am and 5:00 pm every day but Tuesday, when the spa is closed.
