Feb. 9, 2012 - PRLog -- Hardworking spiritual seekers with various skills are encouraged to apply for work exchange positions at Song of the Morning Yoga Retreat Center, located on the picturesque Pigeon River in Vanderbilt, Michigan.  Immediate openings are available for work exchangers who will be provided with simple and comfortable living quarters, gourmet vegetarian meals, and numerous spiritual growth opportunities.  Song of the Morning is also accepting applications for long term (three to five month) summer work exchangers who would like to camp out, providing their own camping gear.  Campers will be provided with meals and have access to toilet and shower facilities.
Song of the Morning, lovingly referred to as “the Ranch,” is looking for people with a variety of skills.  These include, but are not limited to: housekeeping, cooking, maintenance, carpentry, and outdoor skills.  Summer help will be especially involved with maintaining the Ranch’s organic garden, which will be expanded this year to provide increasingly “home grown” meals for guests and staff.  
In addition to learning about organic gardening and sustainability, summer work exchangers will also have the opportunity to contribute to the planning and hosting of Yoga Fest 2012.  This is an exciting festival at Song of the Morning that brings the yoga community together for three days of yoga, workshops, live music, and delicious healthy food to bring joy and raise the collective consciousness.  It will be held August 17th  – 19th.
Applicants for work exchange should have a positive attitude, an open mind, and an aptitude for fun.  Spiritual practice is a significant component of the experience of living and working at Song of the Morning.  Staff and work exchangers have ample opportunities to participate in yoga classes, workshops on a variety of subjects, nightly group meditations, and spiritual discussions.  Other benefits include the enjoyment of Song of the Morning’s 800 acres of woodland.  With a lake for canoeing and kayaking; a river for swimming; and a network of trails for running, biking, and cross-country skiing, nature lovers find a paradise here.
Former work exchanger and current staff member Larissa Stenzel explains, “Deciding to do work exchange at the Ranch was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life.  The staff is incredibly welcoming, the surroundings are gorgeous, the food is delicious, and I love having time for yoga and meditation built into my day.”  
Song of the Morning Yoga Retreat Center is based upon the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, a spiritual teacher from India who wrote Autobiography of a Yogi.  Work exchange provides an opportunity to learn the practical applications of yoga as they relate to everyday life, as well as the chance to increase spiritual discipline and growth.  Work exchangers must be able to live and work together in a communal environment.  Before applying, first review Song of the Morning’s website:
