You may have heard about the Rocklyn Ashram but feel a little challenged in not knowing what an Ashram can offer.

The Rocklyn Ashram is situated in the depths of the Wombat State Forest and offers a quiet, digital free Saturday to Sunday yoga experience of deep rest for the body, mind and emotions. 

 

A practical program of yoga including postures, breathing practices, chanting and lifestyle is presented to give an overview of the depth and wisdom of yoga for everyday life for balance and inner peace – joyful living. 


Introduction to Kriya Yoga - Sw. Premshakti 

26 - 28 May     $290 Enrol
26 - 28 May     $464 Satya Enrol (20% discount for 2) 

Swami Premshakti is a senior swami in the Satyananda Yoga Tradition with over 35 years teaching experience. She has a grounded practical approach to teaching the Kriya Yoga practices, which she conveys with wisdom and intuition according to the needs of the students. 

“Kriya yoga caters to the dimension of consciousness, to sensitise one to experience consciousness, going deep into the realisation of what it is, and to realise the state of pure bliss in consciousness, which is the spirit. Kriya yoga takes you to the vijnanamaya and anandamaya kosha levels.”  Swami Niranjan

KRIYA means ‘activity’ or ‘movement’ and refers to the activity or movement of consciousness. 

Kriya Yoga is a powerful practice which is suitable for all yoga practitioners. The ultimate purpose of Kriya Yoga is to create an awakening in the Chakras (energy centres in the body), purify the Nadis (energy channels) and to awaken Kundalini Shakti. This harmonises and expands consciousness and leads to a deeper understanding of our true nature. 

The weekend includes What is Kriya Yoga and an introduction and practice of the Kriya Yoga practices 1, 2 and 3. For each Kriya there will be teachings of appropriate asana, pranayama, mudras, bandhas, psychic passage and chakra awareness. 

"The practices of kriya yoga will go a long way towards awakening our spiritual potential. There are many yogic techniques, and all have their place, but the practices of kriya yoga are far superior, far better planned, and they are easily accessible to the people of our age." Swami Satyananda

Course Overview


 

A Yoga Mindful Lifestyle Retreat differs a little from the Living Consciously program in that extra time is allocated after lunch to deepen relaxation and reclaim inner balance and direction during your personal retreat. Course material and group meetings are consistent with the Living Consciously concept of awareness.

What was beneficial about the retreat?

  • Yoga Nidra, the daily topic to witness and reflect on and the balance of all the yogas including Karma Yoga were highlights in my life changing experience. 
  • Wonderful. It is one of the most peaceful settings I've had the privilege to be in. I am inspired.  
  • Location, affordability & ethos
  • Group sessions. Complete toolkit to help re-assess your mind/lifestyle

During A Yoga Mindful Lifestyle Retreats program participants will discover, experience and analyse the methods by which yogic principles and practices can be applied in their daily lives.
