Visitor 2022
Thank you so much for my stay at the ashram and for the wonderful programme. The ashram is such a magical place, nestled in nature and away from the bustle of the city. It was a much-needed break from all the external stimulations and distractions, as well as a good reminder to get back to the practice. I left with a better sense of clarity and centredness and can breathe easier now.

About the Hatha Yoga Cleansing Practices

How important are the shatkarmas in Hatha Yoga Sadhana
Yogic science gives as much importance to certain cleansing processes as it does to asana or pranayamas.  They are important from the point of view of physical and mental health, and these simple techniques are also highly valuable in healing internal disorders. Swami Satyananda 

Three cleansing practices (shatkarmas) give a simple, natural yet profound way to detoxify the whole digestive tract from mouth to anus, cleanse the respiratory system, stimulate the digestive system and bring clarity to one’s perception with the world around us. 

Learn the practices under expert guidance in the protected and natural environment of Rocklyn Yoga Ashram.  Once the practises have been experienced one is able to practice them on their own when needed. 

The inspiration and clarity felt when one can again breathe freely, taste, enjoy and digest food and perceive things clearly often gives deep emotional release and mental peace, leading to positive lifestyle changes.

The auspicious celebration at the time of the dark moon Shivaratri will be conducted at Rocklyn Ashram with shiva kirtans, bhajans, midnight havan and Abhishek – the ceremonial bathing of the shivalingam which represents the purification of the soul. During the havan the mantra of Om Namah Shivaya will be chanted 1008 times to awaken the internal Abhishek of mentally pouring the waters of pure love over the Atmalingam of the lotus heart. 

The external Abhishek is performed with various ingredients of vermilion paste representing virture; offering of milk, honey, fruit, sugar and curd to nurture the gratification in life; offering of bhasma, turmeric, tilak and saffron waters to purify; lighting of incense yields wealth and the lighting of oil lamps signifies the attainment of knowledge.  

The offering of these important ingredients, mantra chanting and sincerity encourage the growth of devotion, commitment, integrity, courage, faith, trust and noble thoughts and actions.

Yoga & Ashram Life Daily Timetable 

Ashram Life is one of the most ancient, simple yet impactful ways of rectifying one’s lifestyle, realigning oneself with a positive outlook and connecting with one’s own creativity. Sw. Satsangi

During the Traditional Ashram Life one is expected to do their own morning practices between 6.30 - 7.30am and to follow the daily program.  Yoga Nidra & Meditation sessions are by audio. 

My week at Rocklyn enriched my life immensely in many ways. I understood Karma Yoga to be a powerful spiritual practice that teaches us non-attachment and cheerfulness in all tasks, as well as weakening our likes and dislikes. In addition, when we do things for other people without expectation of a return, our heart opens and we become more humble. I would definitely recommend a visit to Rocklyn or any other ashram to experience these transformational benefits first-hand.  Guest
