Pyramid Yoga Philippines


Our Vision

Pyramid Yoga is an educational center and demonstration site: for Yogic Living and Sustainable Farming practices in picturesque Palawan village of Port Barton, Philippines.

As a Yoga Center and experimental sustainability project, our vision has been to become actively involved in the creation of sustainable food production systems, alternative living and community supported education projects that support a balanced, harmonious and joyful lifestyle.

Pyramid Yoga Philippines is actively involved in practicing yoga through which it helps to cure your anxiety and stress completely and by Yoga Course Thailand you can learn various certified courses in Yoga and enhance your productivity of life in a better way.

Our project currently supports and is supported by the surrounding Philippine community, within which we are assisting local schools and will soon be offering yoga classes to school-aged and adult groups.

In addition to the Sustainable Living Workshops we will continue to offer throughout the year, we are open to accommodating like minded souls who share our vision of clean, simple and conscious living. Whether you are a traveling artisan or have recently retired from the 9-5 grind (at any age), if Pyramid Yoga strikes a chord with you be sure to see our WorkAway profile or Contact Us directly.

As a sustainable project we have added several small huts for students to live in, one more yoga teacher has built a house on the property. Food wise we have 400 pineapple plants that produce more than that many every spring; a similar number of banana trees; avocado trees (one producing and many on the rise. Over the last few years we have planted seeds from every kind of fruit bearing tree, and though they are not all producing yet, it is for sure that they will be. Investment in the future by planting trees; in that line - David has planted over half a million trees back in the Canadian forests. Pyramid Yoga Philippines is an example of a new lifestyle that people of the world should be looking at instead of Bitcoin and digital living. Going back to nature can be a wonderful homecoming.


The bus in the picture on the right is called the Lion King; it used to be the only vehicle capable of making it through the 22 kilometers of mud road on a daily basis. Equipped with a 20 ton winch on the front, it could pull itself out of the worst ruts. Now, as of 2017, the road is a highway with several buses a day coming in and out of Port Barton.


Location

The islands of Palawan stretch from Mindoro in the northeast to Borneo in the southwest and lies between the South China and Sulu Seas.

Palawan's forests and grasslands resonate with the songs of more than 200 species of birds whilst another 600 species of butterflies flutter around the islands' 1500 varieties of plants. At the right time of year It is not uncommon to spot groups of endangered sea turtles nesting on the sandy white beaches or even a Dugong if you're lucky. 

Fortunately for us, our Pyramid Yoga property is nestled in the jungle just above the picturesque Port Barton, overlooking the bay of the sleepy beachfront village. Port Barton is a low-key getaway with crystaline waters perfect for swimming, snorkeling and sailing with unforgettable sunsets almost every day. 

In your spare time there is certainly no shortage of things to see and do in Palawan, for some inspiration take a look at this list of things to do in Palawan. For any further information you might seek see Lonely Planet's take on Palawan.

Accommodation

Whilst we have tenting available, and are building a couple of simple cabins, at this stage we are not offering student lodging at Palawan Samadhi as we are still in the process of constructing the Center. 

There are, however, a variety of affordable bungalows available on the beach front which generally have some of the amenities such as hi-speed wi-fi, and so on. Port Barton is off the grid and has power only from 6pm to midnight; although Pyramid Yoga has its own full time solar power.

As Palawan is surrounded by such beautiful coral gardens and reefs that are abundant with colorful marine life, there is always an eclectic mix of travellers to mingle with wherever you chose to stay. The locals are also incredibly friendly and engaging which always makes overseas travel infinitely more enriching. 

Furthermore, if you intend to explore the island during your spare time organzing trips, tours and activities through hostels and guest accommodations is a walk in the park (or a snorkel in the sea). 



Below is one of the houses built on the property by a resident teacher who does daily classes in the village and workshops on the property. To build a house such as this with full kitchen and bathroom costs less than $10,000; while it on land which presently has 300 banana trees, 400 pineapple plants, avocado trees, coconut . . .  all of which are food producing. Other trees planted are of every available type, though they are not yet at a productive stage.
