In early 2017 Stevo and I spent a weekend at Eden Eco Village in Kampot, Cambodia. Both mornings we were there I was the only student in Chardé’s 7am yoga class on the deck above the river. We chatted before and after class and I learned that she was there on a work-trade, staying and eating for free in exchange for teaching yoga and serving food. She also runs an awesome yoga website, Namasté Con Chardé. Chardé’s story opened our eyes to these types of work-trade opportunities, and we knew we had to share it with you!
