What to Expect

An ashram is not a place of casual accommodation.  It is a place where you come to immerse yourself to fully experience the simple daily yoga program designed to develop and harmonise all the different layers of the personality, providing physical and pranic wellbeing, mental relaxation, self understanding and inner peace.  

We invite and encourage you to participate and experience the daily program to enhance self awareness and focused attention as a way of life beyond the mat. 

From the morning yoga class, yoga nidra - deep relaxation, meditation, to community lifestyle and periods of mouna (silence), visitors to the ashram can take refuge in the supportive foundations set in place.

During your stay you may like to explore the bike riding and walking tracks through the forest surrounding the Ashram.  Or just take it easy relaxing in the quiet spaces in the Ashram gardens.

Personal Retreat Comments

I spent three nights at the Rocklyn Ashram, seeking a tonic to a busy and at times overwhelming life. I 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.

A place to get clarity of mind away from influences. Perfect & pleasant. 

Peace & connectedness, beautiful place offering genuine yoga practices and lifestyle.

There is a good balance between sadhana - practices: postures, breathing techniques, meditation, relaxation, chanting, karma yoga - yoga awareness in action, and free time.

Allows people to slow down and look at life objectively.










Additional private classes or help with setting up a personal home practice can be arranged with an experienced residential Satyananda Yoga teacher.
