Yoga & Ashram Life Daily Timetable
Yoga @ the Ashram

The Ashram lifestyle and daily yoga practices are based on a living tradition which is a complete and practical system for realigning and redirecting the emotions and the mind for positive and personal evolution.

Feedback January 2017

"Thank you all for my stay and experience at the Ashram last week.  The programs, support and the way of life you offer to visitors is truly appreciated and I look forward to visiting again."  John May 2017

"The last eleven weeks at Rocklyn have gifted me with deep peace and nourishment of my inner spirit. It has been pure joy to serve, love and give at the ashram. I was part of the continual cycle of energy as I mixed the sourdough, fed the steaming compost, weeded the garden, kindled fires, freshened rooms, scrubbed and swept. Here, what is once considered 'work' becomes life.

I have found delights abound in every moment, depending on whether your heart is open to notice them. Not only has my activity here been for the benefit of the whole community, but each task has some wisdom for me, each interaction, whether it be with person, animal or earth, contains some hidden treasure.

So in that way I have found a perhaps simple daily life to be immensely enriching. There is a particular feeling you get from sharing with others who are connected to this circle of life at the ashram. I so warmly thank everyone who was part of my life there, it has been such a pleasure to learn and grow with you all. I travel back out into to world feeling brighter, stronger and uplifted!"  Fiona July 2017

What’s in it for you?

4 classes a day: morning yoga class of asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing), yoga nidra (deep relaxation), meditation or havan (fire ceremony with mantra chanting) and evening program of chanting and discussion. 

Delicious vegetarian meals, much of which is sourced from the ashram’s organic vegetable garden, or local organic produce.

Become immersed in an authentic and traditional yogic lifestyle.

Understand the scope that yoga has to offer ‘beyond the mat’ by exposure to various branches and practices of yoga.

Developing practical tools for living: regularity and simplicity, self-awareness in daily life, overcoming mental conditioning and patterns, building positive attitudes and intention, harmonising the expression of head, heart and hands.

Are you up for the challenge?

How committed are you to making lasting positive changes in your life?  How would you handle a week of:

  • Morning wake-up call at 5.30am for 6am class
  • Maintaining silence from evening until after breakfast, and at all meals on Wednesdays
  • Sharing a room with someone you’ve never met
  • Full participation in the ashram daily routine
  • Engaging with a diverse range of people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and beliefs
  • A complete “digital detox” – switch off your mobile and leave your laptop at home
  • And at the end feel you have benefited

What to Expect

The Yoga & Ashram Life option includes approximately 5hrs of full time Karma Yoga - awareness, being fully engaged and present in action in the lifestyle with the daily ashram routine.  The activities include, organic veggie garden, kitchen, maintenance, house keeping, and many other varied and interesting lifestyle projects.
