This retreat combines the science of Permaculture with powers of yoga. Permaculture is a practical yet harmonious design science. By learning to use appropriate and intelligent design principles, you will be able to take care of all your basic physical needs in a responsible way that works with, rather than against nature. Also, before and after the class you can join daily yoga sessions, to align body, mind, and soul.
The Krishna Village can host up to 75 people in a combination of rooms, dorms and camping spots. There are usually around 25 full time volunteers who work in organic gardens and maintain the grounds, 10 long-term community members and 15 to 25 retreat guests or Karma yogis. All rooms have shared amenities. The amenities include showers, toilets and a coin operated laundry. Common areas include the kitchen and campfire area (the heart of the Krishna Village), the reading and the yoga hall, where classes take place.
The Krishna Village has 6 double and 11 single rooms. They are all set in former shipping containers, that have been renovated and turned into simple but comfortable accommodation.
For some of the volunteers and yoga teacher trainees, Krishna Village provides dorms (1 male, 1 female, each for up to 4 people) and one double room. The dorms are simple but practical and have bunk beds and wardrobe space for your belongings.
Set among beautiful mango and lychee trees in the eastern garden, Krishna Village Eco Yoga Community camp ground can host up to 20 tents and 5 camper vans. The area for the vans is equipped with electricity. The amenities block is only 50 meters away.
Participating in a Permaculture design course at the Krishna Village eco yoga community is a unique opportunity to be involved in an integrated ‘whole-being’ approach to Permaculture, yoga, and conscious community creation. During your time on this course, you will experience and gain understanding of the following:
Throughout the course, a variety of short group design exercises will be provided, culminating in a final and complete Permaculture design putting into effect everything you will have learned throughout the course in an integrated and embodied presentation. This experience will undoubtedly give you the confidence to create Permaculture designs for yourself, friends, family, and potentially be the first step in a wide-open career pathway. Also, you can optionally chose to attend daily yoga and yogic living sessions, before and after the Permaculture class to align body, mind, and soul.
This retreat will take place in The Krishna Village, Australia. Nestled in the foothills of Mount Warning, in the heart of the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, the Hare Krishna farm “New Govardhana” is a beautiful 1000 acre property with orchards, veggie gardens, cows, horses, streams, and swimming holes in abundance. From the moment when you cross the rustic wooden bridge over the Oxley River and pass through the beckoning avenue of trees which comprises the entrance to the farm, you will notice that this vedic yoga sanctuary is a special place and that your soul finds peace and a sense of coming home.
