Benefits of undertaking a Full Residential Stay during Courses - Rachel 2022

I chose to live at Rocklyn ashram while studying to become an Instructor in the Satyananda tradition because I wanted to be in a supportive environment, that would reinforce what I was learning on the Instructor course.

As the Instructor course was taught online via zoom, I was given access to the internet in a private space to attend the yoga classes, lectures and tutorials.  I was also given time for studying, reading the course material and the opporltunity to give Yoga Nidra to small Ashram resident groups.  This was a valuable way to build my confidence in instructing yoga nidra.

I found Rocklyn ashram schedule to be similar to the one in the Munger ashram in India.  The regularity of daily tasks held space for the inner work to occur.  Everyday there was the opportunity to learn something new, either in karma yoga, meditation, yoga, chanting or kirtan.

The ashram environment, and the nature surrounding it provided an inspiring, nurturing place for me to journey deeper into the Satyananda tradition.

Approach to learning

These courses are highly practical, not a conventional academic approach, with:

  • Three or more supporting classes of asana, pranayama and meditation each week.

  • Regular tutorials for sharing with fellow students
  • Online learning website with video and audio and written resources.
