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.

Yoga & Ashram Life Comments

  • Engaging with others in a yogic lifestyle, the yoga practices and learning useful tools for life
  • A very unique and rewarding experience.
  • Opportunity for self development & reflection
  • A fantistic way to have respite from a busy life and learn to live life more consciously/meaningfully


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
