Yoga Ashram

What to Bring


Pillow, single bed sheets, blankets/doona and towel.  If you are bringing a sleeping bag please bring a bed sheet as well.  A hot water bottle can be useful in the colder months.

IMPORTANT HEALTH ISSUE: Please do not bring bedding that has been used in Backpackers or Hostel accommodation. 

Full bedding is to be pre booked and can be hired at $30 for the duration of your stay.
Bedding pack includes: 2 sheets, doona, pillow and pillow case, towel and small light blanket


Bring clothes suitable for a yoga class and outdoor activities - very warm clothes for winter.  Rocklyn is at a high altitude and can be at least 5 degrees colder than Melbourne. The weather is changeable, even in summer, and sometimes becomes quite cold.

The best shoes to bring are slip-on for around the ashram buildings and outdoor shoes for karma yoga or walking in the forest.

Laundry facilities are available. Please supply your own laundry powder or purchase from reception.

Medical - Important

Living with the risk of a severe allergic reaction to foods, bites i.e. ants, spiders or snakes, or anaphylaxis, takes planning, diligence and clear communication. 

Please bring a current EpiPen for your own safety as the ashram is 20mins from the Daylesford hospital.

If you use an EpiPen please inform us on arrival if you have your EpiPen with you.


It is recommended to bring a drinking bottle, torch, alarm clock, sunscreen, hat and ear plugs.
