5Thank you shinbidef!
I threw a glance to this site and looks interesting. But do you have direct experience with this site. I don't want to pay 20€ for registration and then realise that it is a rip off! Have you used this site and everything was ok? Please excuse me if i was rude, but i just want to be sure.

Yw and completely understand where you're coming from! It's def not a rip off and I've used it but not for a while. However, with some of the listings you can see reviews by other people who have been volunteering with the respective hosts so you can check to see how the experience was.
I have noticed that more and more "paid" opportunities have been creeping onto it as when I first registered, the condition was that the postings should be free opportunities. They're still a lot cheaper than anything organised through i-to-i and similar organisations though and still a few completely free ones on there. I can't promise they're all legit but hopefully you can research the organisations elsewhere as well if there are no reviews.
When are you planning to do the yoga? If you're interested in any specific postings, perhaps I could forward your email onto them as you're on a tight budget? My premier membership has expired but probably going to renew it as will be planning some volunteering in Thailand and Cambodia.
I'm also interested in learning yoga - I did a Hatha yoga lessons in Nepal but was a bit disappointed. Also, when I asked the instructor why I was getting such bad leg shakes, she said I must have a very poor diet (not true) and that was the cause! I've since looked this up and have seen that this is a very normal side effect from starting yoga and can't see that it has anything to do with diet!
Feel free to pm me =)

7Yoga Gypsies (http://www.helpx.net/host.asp?hostid=16605&network=9) got good reviews and their website is here: http://www.yogagypsys.com/ so you could contact them directly. Not sure if you were looking for something further north though?
