About Rocklyn Ashram The Ashram is distinguished by its tranquil setting nestled within the depths and silence of the Wombat State Forest 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 and develop 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 and peace. Other traditional practices include kirtan, mantra chanting and havan (fire ceremonies) peace for humanity, environmental protection 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.

- Review: rocklyn-ashram
- I spent three nights at the Rocklyn Ashram, seeking a tonic to a busy and at times overwhelming life. I found the quiet, serenity and routine of the Ashram to be both soothing and rejuvenating. The stillness and silence of the Ashram allowed my body and mind to slow down so that I was able to recognize my own wisdom and peace. Arriving home I found a sense of quiet came with me. I am working towards bringing some of the Ashram routine to my everyday life to create balance, creativity and stillness. Thank-you for the opportunity to visit your Ashram. Sharon
