What attracted you to the course:

  • I wanted to continue the Living Consciously program, however with more space to reflect and relax my body, allowing me to make more solid connections between what I was learning and how to make adjustments to patterns I had created at home
  • Calming and helpful for rebalancing life
  • Quiet, restful and affordable
Living Consciously option 2 Comments

The Living Consciously Option 2 Retreat differs a little from the Living Consciously Option 1 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 taken from the text:​     Yoga with Attitude.

Enhancement of the whole personality is balanced with daily classes of:

  • Morning and evening group discussions on the daily awareness topics
  • Morning yoga classes: asana, pranayama, meditation, karma yoga & chanting
  • Yoga nidra – relaxation before lunch
  • Evening programs of havan, vedic chanting, kirtan, discussions, satsang, documentries
  • The afternoon free time is yours to deeply relax in the quiet space of the Ashram
  • You may choose to take a walk or bike ride along the forest paths
  • Explore the library and find a great book, practise music or yoga
  • or take the opportunity to have a private class with a senior teacher

Course Overview

Mental Health Support
Rocklyn Yoga Ashram promotes qualities of self responsibility and self awareness.  When visiting the ashram we require people with mental health conditions to have a sufficient level of self care that allows them to manage their behaviours. If assistance with mental health issues is needed during your stay at the ashram, we require our visitors to seek professional mental health support outside the ashram.  While the traditional yoga practices we offer support wholistic health, our yoga teachers are not mental health therapists.


Please make your booking at least 2 days prior to the commencement of the retreat

Living Consciously option 2 Comments

  • The nature of the course 
  • This course and the way the Ashram functions, delivers the peaceful truth, that yoga is a philosophy for life and living in the here and now
  • Beautiful and natural, affordable - important to me
  • Ethos - what i was looking for
  • I feel a lot more positive and have tools to change my negative thoughts
  • It is a place, that at least for me, is unique here in Australia
  • I have never had such an aware experience
  • Allows spaciousness and time for quiet reflection

Realizing that my busy corporate life was in need of balance, I found my way to Rocklyn having had no experience of Ashram life, yet trusting that the week long Yoga Ashram Life retreat would enable the peace and re-balance I was seeking.  I was delighted that people visiting or else living the retreat were immediately welcoming and my bare feet breathed, shoulders dropped and heart rate slowed not long after arriving.  While facilities are basic, the twice daily karma yoga awareness practices such as gardening and kitchen meal assistance were often shared with others and the insights gained there were deepened by daily yoga practices such as early morning yoga class and yoga nidra and supported by beautiful vegan meals.  When interspersed with time alone to walk, read or just be, I was genuinely revitalized by the end of the 7 day stay and made some long term friends as well.  

And so while I promised myself and the Ashram that I would return again, it was sooner than expected after deciding to take advantage of the Easter holiday break six weeks after my first visit.  My previous visit had enabled to me relax and re-balance and gain a deeper perspective on the many things occurring in my personal life.  Autumn had now descended, and the weather had turned cool, however the Ashram was as welcoming and calming as  before.  There were new visitors to meet and get to know especially during daily karma yoga program.  During this visit I explored more of the tranquil surrounding bush land and took more time re-connecting with nature and enjoying the yoga experience.  That's the beauty of Rocklyn: experiences each visit have been different yet the calming yoga philosophy and essence of Rocklyn has ensured that my health and wellbeing has improved each time and I feel re-balanced, re-centred and  re-energized.  And that's why I am sure to return again, like so many others before me.  Inspired guest
