Meet owners and creators of Belize Jungle Yoga, Matt and Natalie Hayden- a farmer and a yogini, driven by a dream to live a sustainable, purposeful and holistic lifestyle. They began construction of their first home at the BJY Retreat Center in 2008 on the Perez Family Estate​. ​In 2009 they purchased 25 acres of the neighboring property to create a lifestyle resort and syntropic farm, Ka’an K’uh, to teach practices rooted in yoga and farming. Ka’an K’uh which means sacred spirit in Maya, was always known in the village of Rancho Dolores, Belize to be a very special piece of land. After Matt and Natalie purchased the property they discovered the sacred Maya sites on the land which went back through generations of Mayan settlement. Ka’an K’uh has 1 significant Maya site on the property and several other signs of the ancient community living on the grounds. Matt and Natalie have been working on both properties over 10 years which serve as BJY’s home, farm, learning center and playground. Currently, BJY programs are held on their original family estate, with medicinal studies, farm and building courses, special yoga classes and moon dances held on the new property, Ka’an K’uh, the future retreat center of BJY. The healing practices, programs and services they offer are rooted in the 8 limbs of yoga and are complemented by Ayurveda. Honor and reverence to the elements, the ancients and the Maya ancestors of the land are always present. The new property is full of intention- from the plants and fruit trees on the syntropic farm to the sustainable building techniques. Ceremonial spaces, yogic foods, natural laboratories, healing spas, and restful abodes create harmony in every aspect of the community. Natalie, a 3rd generation Maya healer from Belize has been studying Yoga, Pilates, and the healing arts for 15 years and has returned to her home in Belize to bring together all aspects of a yogic and holistic lifestyle. Matt, is a 3rd generation farmer from USA, grounded by his faith and driven by love, is honored to cultivate life through the growth of food and medicine. He is joyous to bring his commitment of a purposeful and sustainable (continued in comments)

infill #strawbale construction process: 1. build the foundation (always first!) 2. build some kind of skeleton structure -- this can be a simple post-and-beam structure, a beautiful #timberframe, or even stud construction 3. get the roof on and leak-free (ideally the finish roofing is in place) 4. now you are ready for #strawbales to infill between your structure...under the protection of your roof. This is a great choice if you live somewhere (like I do) that it may rain any given day of the year. 5. electrical wiring is next (note, that I keep all plumbing away from exterior walls, so that can install anytime with respect to strawbale installation) 6. then you are ready to plaster both sides This photo shows the construction of a small (650 SF) cottage that was built entirely via #workshops & #sweatequity by the homeowners. Because they offset almost all of the labor costs, their total cost to build was under $75/SF. #strawbaleinfill #naturalbuilding #naturalhome #process #howto #homestead

• Why are our plasters shipped dry and in biodegradable paper bags? 🤔 • Shipping plaster already mixed with water and in plastic buckets = HEAVY. Heavy weight + heavy expensive + heavy landfills + carbon heavy =🤯 • We keep it light weight so we can be light on the planet (and provide free shipping)🌎✨ • Check out Limestrong plasters at our newest Northwest Distributor, @sustain_interiors !

#repost @the_bamboo_hub ・・・ About the potential of bamboo as building material there is still a lot to study and research. In BAMBOO HUB, we are working in partnership with different universities to explore different construction techniques and shapes that allow bamboo to perform in the most effective and beautiful way.

What an amazing weekend! We have had so many wonderful people help out with lime rendering our roundhouse, many of whom started out as strangers & have now become great friends. . We did it! We got all the way round the building with the scratch coat & just have a few fiddly details to iron out over the coming days. . The kids have roamed the land like a mixed age tribe all weekend, spending a whole lot of time on the tree swing and in the woods. . Today we've woken up with sore fingers & hearts full of gratitude for all the time and energy these lovely folk have gifted to our project. . Thank you all again for being such troupers & we are really looking forward to seeing some of you again in 2 weeks time 😍 .

Feeling the warm and fuzzies and super inspired after Sustainable House Day yesterday. We spoke to some owner builders who gave us hope that our dream might be achievable, and we even left two of the houses with gifts - Dave gave us a copy of a book on natural building techniques that we’ve been looking for, and Patrick (another Patrick) sent us home with a still air box along with a demonstration on how to make our own mushroom grain spawn instead of buying online, after we admired his mushroom cultivation. And of course, some delicious mushrooms! What a day. . I think we’re gonna build a strawbale house! . @sustainablehouseday #sustainability #naturalbuilding #strawbale #mushrooms

We ask a lot of green roofs (like this green roof on the fifth floor of a parking structure we resurrected almost 10 yrs ago). And we don’t do it nicely, either, with engraved invitations and party favors and whatnot. We build them, then order them to manage stormwater, cool rooftops, filter toxins and stay alive in the face of harsh weather conditions. • To do all that with a smile on their faces, green roofs need several tools, layered on top of a roof membrane in just-so order. If you want to make sure your ecosystem performs the best it can, you’ve got to get it right … which is why we’re talking about green roof layers on the blog today. • Head to the link in profile! • #ecogardens #ecogardenschicago #sodroof #livingroofs #greenroof #greenroofs #greenspace #naturalbuilding #livinginfrastructure #greenarchitecture #greenbuilding #greencity #greenconstruction #greendesign #greenearth #greengoals #greengoals #smartcities #reimaginingcities #futurecities #energyefficiency #environmentaldesign #environmentalengineering #environmentalpollution #environmentalscience #eocsystem #biophillicdesign #citiesofthefuture #conservationlandscaping #designgoesgreen

This technique is something of a hybrid between rammed earth and conventional wattle and daub. The rocks fill up the space and provide insulation. The last plaster of mud will then fill in the gaps. We also left holes for a couple windows and a door which we made ourselves from scrap wood.

Last week we got to meet Dave Pennington, the inventor of a simple but revolutionary building material he calls EPIC. It is made of cement and shredded paper and polystyrene, and can be used to make all sorts of block shapes as well as be poured into or sprayed onto dome forms. In the past we have been wary of products where plastics are used as aggregate in earthen mixes (the idea is to keep plastics contained and separated from the earth right?!), but the advantages of this tech are astounding. It can be used to make domes with 2 inch thick walls and no reinforcement whatsoever, you can wail on it with a sledgehammer and barely dent it, and it provides a bit of insulation that other cement products don't. Oh and it can be cut with a saw and recycled back into more of itself! We are excited to have Dave out to Santa Fe in the near future for a workshop combining this epic stuff with some Ecobricks and Ubuntu-Blox. Please let us know in a PM if you would like to join our e-mail list to stay informed about upcoming events.

Let’s talk about the beauty and benefits of eco-housing and construction! These unique homes involve the use of materials and resources that are 100% environmentally safe! You’ll find that these homes are constructed out of earth-made materials like adobe, cob, wood, stone, and recycled materials. Eco homes also usually run on natural resources like sun and wind power! Solar panels are a great resource of energy for electricity and eliminates that dreadful BGE bill every month. Another popular resource that’s used to sustain eco homes is a rainwater collection system. This ensures that the freshest water is coming through your tap! Eco construction is low maintenance, low operation cost, energy efficient, water efficient, healthier, and SUSTAINABLE!

It’s Saturday morning, living our 3rd week here in our @floating.room and What a Journey it has been!!! It’s such a transition into living in and around this space. We’re learning that mindfulness plays a key role in navigating ourselves internally and how we move our bodies so that even in a small space, we give room to each other. Our platform ‘living’ area which also turns into our sleeping space at night is turning out to be quite a fun place for our 3 year old Noe to jump around in. Our Cuddlenest!

Hyperboloid structures are architectural structures designed using a hyperboloid in one sheet. Often these are tall structures such as towers where the hyperboloid geometry's structural strength is used to support an object high off the ground, but hyperboloid geometry is also often used for decorative effect as well as structural economy. In our project "Arco Iris" (Rainbow), in Colombia, kids and adults can climb this magnificent tower and enjoy the amazing views 🏞️ . . #greenarchitecture #greenbuilding #stopclimatechange #coolbamboo #ecofriendly #ecolife #ecolifestyle #naturalbuilding #reducewaste #innovation #innovationforsustainability #innovationagainstclimatechange #thinkbamboo #bamboo4climatechange #bambooisgrowing #bamboo #bambooplant #bambooarchitecture #bamboocomstruction #bamboohub #sustainability #sustainabilitymatters #sustainablearchitecture #sustainablehome #thinkgreen #thinkbamboo
