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.

'Be aware of your breathing.  Notice how this takes attention away from your thinking and creates space
Eckhart Tolle

When stressed the nervous system triggers the flight and fright reaction. This causes us to breathe short and shallow as if we are permanently hyperventilating.   

Prolonged periods of stress and incorrect  breathing leads to anxiety, confusion and many other debilitating health conditions. 

The breathing practices, pre breathing technique asanas – postures to deepen the breath & Yoga Nidra - relaxation taught on this weekend will correct, reset and restore the breathing patterns resulting in greatly reducing stress and anxiety.
