Karma Yogi

Exciting opportunity to join our all-star team at Hariharalaya Retreat Center in Siem Reap, Cambodia near the Ancient Temples of Angkor. Hariharalaya is a dynamic community-based learning environment that offers 6 Day retreats to guests from all over the world.

At Hariharalaya we focus on an integral approach of yoga – awakening and tuning the body, heart and mind through postures, breath, meditation, creativity, silence, dance, laughter and simplicity. We use yoga as a training to live in the present moment. Our core message is the importance of dedicating some time for a regular daily practice of asana, breath and meditation. A regular daily meditation practice is also a must and an important part of our retreat program.

The Karma Yogi role is a minimum 6 month salaried position beginning June 9th, 2018. A Karma Yogi should have an amiable, loving, sociable nature, as well as great people skills and a sharp attention to detail. He/She should be able to move and mix with everyone within the community and have perfect adaptability, mercy and cosmic love. He/She should be sympathetic and tolerant and able to adjust him or herself to the habits and ways of others. He/She should have an all-embracing and all-inclusive heart.
