Benefits of my Stay at Rocklyn Ashram

My stay here at the Rocklyn Yoga Ashram cannot really be put into words. 

I came here for three weeks, with the first week being the “Mindful Yoga Lifestyle Retreat’.  

This week equipped me with practical self-observation tools and opened my heart and awareness to live and experience the ashram life ahead.  The teachings were valuable and profound, and they inspired significant changes in my overall wellbeing, as well as my attitude towards myself, other people and life in general.  

With a calmer and quieter mind, increased ability to observe and witness and less self judgementalness, I moved through my days with more grace, ease, focus and a genuine sense of joy and balance. 

The beautiful Ashram environment, nature, fresh organic foods from the garden as well as all teachers and the guided practices have been incredibly nourishing to my body, mind and soul. 

Reflecting on each experience, the total experience has enriched my life tremendously and supported me in reconnecting, refocusing, balancing and discovering new pathways to continuing living a life full of meaning, awareness and joy.
