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.

Silence is essential. We need silence, just as much as we need air, just as much as plants need light. If our minds are crowded with words and thoughts, there is no space for us.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

The ashram situated on the edge of the Wombat State Forest is a perfect silent retreat environment.  

A short Silent Yoga & Meditation retreat offers precious time and space, not always available in other forms of living, for quieter and deeper self-reflection and self-enquiry. 

Silence is an opportunity to quietly and objectively look within. With systematic practice, you will be able to give a new orientation to your feelings and experience enhanced connection with your quieter self.

There are also some recorded meditation practices posted. 

If you go into a room and the door is locked from outside it’s called a prison. 
If you go into a room and you lock the door from inside it’s called solitude. 
So what have we got here?

When events are beyond our control then a different way of thinking is needed.
The solution to finding peace of mind is by looking deeper into our inner life, where we come nearer to the source of our inner strength. 
Meditation provides the means to make the entry into the inner world knowingly, and then how to engage with what we find there in our private space
This is the principle behind the Power of Awareness outlined in many articles in this blog.

Course Overview

The Peaceful Self Yoga 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 The Peaceful Self Yoga Retreats program participants will discover, experience and analyse the methods by which yogic principles and practices can be applied in their daily lives.
