With systematic practice of noble silence, you will be able to give a new orientation to your feelings. 
Calm the bubbling emotions, instincts and impulses through noble silence.  

Swami Sivananda 

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

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

The practice of noble silence coupled with meditation is an opportunity to become still, to consciously turn the mind inwardness, to experience enhanced connection revealing the inner quieter self.  

By committing to a partial silent retreat with the practice of self-awareness and remaining the witness, the mind itself naturally becomes less busy, more focused and clear without effort, revealing deeper understanding and inner contentment.

The retreat includes:

  • yoga asanas & pranayama become the basis for stillness
  • pranayama practices to enhance meditation and inner silence
  • pratyahara - turning the attention inwards 
  • Yoga Nidra – deep relaxation for body/mind/emotions
  • review of the day
  • practical yoga psychology on the 3 gunas - states of existence 
  • sitting meditation:  Antar Mouna – attitude of a witness to cultivate equanimity and inner silence
  • walking meditation using the senses to be present 
  • encouraged to keep a personal diary (optional)  

Rocklyn Yoga Ashram, operated by Yoga Association of Victoria Inc. as an autonomous entity,
remains committed to the tradition of Satyananda Yoga and continues the teachings under
the banner of Satyananda Yoga by arrangement with the IYFM.
