Rocklyn is a yoga ashram offering traditional aspects of yoga through wellbeing programs and accredited learning. The Ashram is distinguished by its tranquil setting nestled within the depths and silence of the Wombat State Forrest near Daylesford.
During a stay all the major branches of yoga i.e hatha, bhakti, jnana, raja, kriya, mantra and karma yoga are practised in a systematic way to integrate all the different layers of the personality, providing physical and pranic wellbeing, mental relaxation, self understanding and inner peace.
The day begins with a morning class of asana, pranayama, meditation and vedic chanting. According to the type of stay you choose varied and interesting karma yoga projects are allocated in the morning and afternoon. Yoga Nidra (relaxation) is practised before lunch. Periods of silence are present for reflection. Other traditional practices include kirtan, mantra chanting and havan (fire ceremonies) for peace and personal wellbeing.
Time is available to: explore the numerous forest walking or bike riding tracks, the natural silence, engage with others, or explore the Saraswati Library.
