Yoga Ashram

Personal Comments & more.....

The time and space to patiently and kindly re-discover parts of yourself is a real gift.
A place where the rhythms of the world are vibrant and the energy conducive to inner ease, is Rocklyn ashram. A place, where with each visit, you can more deeply explore your outer and inner landscapes.
Our external perceptions, habitual storylines and constant routines can ‘drive’ us into a groove, an unhelpful way to be with ourselves and others in the world.
Deliberate care and intent sustain this ashram as a place of elegant simplicity – a place to reconnect so as to live and be in our true purpose. 

As a yoga teacher and yoga therapist I savour the hatha class, and so love (and emulate) the regular reminders for a whole-body focus, to move and be from the inside out, and that only this moment is where I am.

 Rocklyn Yoga Ashram

I have visited the Ashram, set amongst the beautiful surrounds of the Wombat State forest, a few times now. As soon as I get out of the car and breathe in the air and energy I immediately start to unwind.

I find the ashram a place of peace, it gives me time out from the world and I can nourish my soul.

It gives me an opportunity to be away from the phone, tv, traffic, work, household chores and day to day stuff.

I can truly rest my brain and my body.

I can rebalance and connect through the daily program of yoga and meditation.

I can feed my soul by practicing karma yoga, as I love helping others and contributing.

Attending the ashram has also led me to make changes in my everyday life such as eating healthier, dedicating more time to my self care, increasing my meditation and yoga practice, and being conscious of how I am spending my time and energy.

I love that the Ashram has all types of programs and price levels, so that it can be accessible to everyone. Everybody is accepted without judgement from all walks of life.

Not to mention that the food is amazing.

I highly recommend the Rocklyn Yoga Ashram.


  • A place to get clarity of mind away from influences, perfect & pleasant.
  • There is a good balance between sadhana - practices: postures, breathing techniques, meditation, relaxation, chanting, karma yoga - yoga awareness in action, and free time.
  • I cannot thank you enough for providing such an amazing, restful, energetic environment.  I recently reached a point of stress and anxiety to a point of hospitalisation during a recent panic attack.  I am lucky enough to be aware that I need to listen to my selfcare warnings.  The combination of the nuturing environment of the ashram and the healing bush surrounds have worked a miracle for me.  Thank you.

  • I spent three nights at the Rocklyn Ashram, seeking a tonic to a busy and at times overwhelming life and found the quiet, serenity and routine of the Ashram to be both soothing and rejuvenating. The stillness and silence of the Ashram allowed my body and mind to slow down so that I was able to recognize my own wisdom and peace.
