Who We Are
At Anahata Yoga Retreat we live, share and teach the yogic lifestyle. Our integral approach provides inspiration to enrich your life as well as valuable skills to take away & incorporate into your day-to-day activities.
We operate under an umbrella of sustainability – raising funds through our retreats and events, and utilising donations to help maintain and develop the services on offer.
Founded on Permaculture principles, Anahata focuses on being resource-efficient – using alternative power, composting toilets, eco-buildings and nutritious vegetarian meals.
The money that we raise will be spent on food, gas, petrol, equipment, facilities, buildings, maintenance and much more. We also accept donations to support our yogic mission through our Heart Chakra Fund. Feel free to check it out to see how you can support us.
Visiting Teachers and Swamis
Anahata regularly hosts many visiting teachers and swamis throughout the year, including:
Rishi Nityabodhananda and Rishi Yoga Diwali
Rishi Nityabodhananda and Rishi Yoga Diwali are Dynamic Masters of the Satyananda Yoga tradition. They have tutored students for over 40 years in India, Australia, and other ashrams around the world. Rishi Nityabodha is the author of Satyananda Yoga publication “Awakening Ajna Chakra”, and together the Rishis bring many years of experience and immense wisdom. These Rishis are captivating, humble, humorous, and inspirational.
Swami Atmamuktananda Saraswati, “Atma”, first encountered Yoga Master Paramahamsa Satyananda Saraswati at his ashram in Bihar, India, in 1979. She continued to live under the guidance of Swami Satyananda for many years. In 1996 Atma became the Director and Acharya of the Rocklyn Ashram in Victoria, Australia, and continues to reside at the Ashram and train yoga aspirants from all walks of life. Atma has a simple, straightforward and practical approach to personal progress in life. Self-observation and attention to the everyday details of living consciously, is central to her approach.
