  1. Hello,

    I would like to apply for this job. I lived and worked part time doing admin for Areeradh at Yogatree in Chiang Mai last year and have visited NLF as part of the dance training. Samina and few people know me very well. I am also a holistic therapist who could offer my treatments there. I practice Qigong so I can teach too and a certified DANCEmandala teacher and have good knowledge of raw foods and nutrition in general. I am at present based in London – is it worth me applying for the job? And if so could you please let me know the deadline for application?

    Many thanks
    Shaku Burrell
