Internships at Anamaya
Anamaya now has two internship positions available, done in block of one month. To be clear, we plan to have an intern in each categories at all times.
To qualify to work as an intern for Anamaya, you must be creative, very health-oriented, health-oriented, multi-talented, and totally awesome. You will live at Anamaya, sharing one of the smaller rooms with another intern.
Typically our interns fall into these categories:
Students that happen to love yoga and find us by accident
Recent university graduates looking for experience and wanting something for their resume
Graduates of our YTT program who don’t want to leave Costa Rica
Guests from our retreats who fall in love with Anamaya and are looking for a reason to join us
The internship position costs $500 per month, which covers your food and lodging at Anamaya Resort is included. If you’re a graduate of our YTT program then this fee will be waived.
You may notice that there’s no “yoga teacher” internship position at the moment, which we get a lot of inquiries for. If you’re a yoga teacher and would like to intern here, then you must also qualify for one of the following two categories. Generally we’d give a yoga teacher, especially the graduates of our YTT program, priority over other candidates.
The two categories of internship positions are:
Are you amazing in the kitchen? Perhaps graduated from a culinary arts school, or just naturally gifted and love to feed people? Your job as an intern could include duties such as:
Helping the kitchen staff with their regular duties or filling in if a regular employee is absent
Preparing labor-intensive natural foods such as coconut milk or goats milk that our regular staff wouldn’t ordinarily have time to do
Serving the guests at meals
Experimenting with new recipes
Cooking for and possibly leading our “Farm to Table” dinners at Rancho Delicioso
Writing blog articles for our recipes or cookbook
Our media interns generally have a range of skills within various media that can help to promote Anamaya and/or educate the public.
Such skills include:
Social Media: Facebook/Pinterest/Instagram/Twitter
Web Site Devlopment
