Code of Conduct at the Krishna Village

The Krishna Village is a beautiful space to relax, heal, rejuvenate, connect to yourself and experience your spirituality. The Hare Krishna philosophy places emphasis upon health and wellness, as it is conducive to opening up the mind for spiritual practice and higher thinking. Therefore, intoxication is not acceptable in this environment, and Krishna Village is asking all their guests to completely abstain from drinking, smoking, and any other drugs while staying with them.

A similarly important principle is ahimsa, or non-violence towards all living entities. This is why you wont find any meat and eggs at Krishna Village - they even aim at avoiding animal products like gelatine, animal fats etc. Krishna Village therefore ask all their guests not to bring any meat, fish or egg products onto the farm and live a vegetarian lifestyle while staying with them.

She covers topics from accreditation and insurance to spiritual and emotional self-care.

She holds a diploma in remedial massage and a variety of qualifications in different whole body massage techniques, including the modalities of Balinese massage, yoga floor massage and Kahuna massage. She is also a Reiki master and Spirit Surgery facilitator. Her IICT accreditation qualifies her to provide training and issue internationally recognized certificates in Intuitive Balinese massage and Reiki.

The Krishna Village is an eco yoga community set on an organic farm. It provides the blueprint of a simple, mindful, spiritually based lifestyle.

    "I stayed in Krishna Eco Yoga Village with my friend for a one week yoga retreat, and what a treat it was! Accommodation was clean and comfortable, the shower/toilet block was not far from my room, with showers which worked well. There was a convenient open plan kitchen with a large storage fridge, a large stove, kettles, and a toaster. The setting is delightfully picturesque, and the atmosphere friendly and calming. The three daily meals provided were vegan/vegetarian and it was delicious. The yoga classes were lively, non judgmental always, informative. For sure, I shall be returning.", edited

    "One of the greatest gift that I gave myself was a one week yoga retreat stay at Krishna Village. This magical land allows me to connect with my true self and every beautiful being I have met there. I took two days Balinese massage course by Karen and Dee. They are wonderful teachers with special ability to love and heal. I can feel my heart is smiling when I think of them. Everything about it is amazing, the nature, the food, and the people. I left with my mind open and my spirit high!"

    "Krishna Village supports every aspect of Yoga practices, from the familial community to the healthy food al the way to the expertly taught Asana classes. The daily kirtan sessions have inspired me, as well as digging in the dirt and connecting with the Earth in the huge organic gardens. I have experienced a level of nurturing guidance here that can only be offered by devoted Yoga teachers. I am truly grateful for Krishna Village."

    "The Krishna Yoga community is a beautiful, inspiring green home away from home. I stumbled upon the Krishna farm as I was seeking a Yoga retreat and a week away from my hectic city life, although the yoga was gentle and cleansing, it was the community of beautiful, kind spiritual seekers, travelers and like minded souls that inspired me the most. The entire property is truly heaven on earth, set amongst the rolling green hills of the Northern Rivers and a short distance from the dramatic Mt Warning. The property is a sanctuary of bountiful vegetable gardens, shared community and dining spaces, a yoga hall, grazed paddocks and high on the hill, the temple of the Hare Krishna community. Guests can choose to pay for a Retreat, a daily fee which includes a daily meals (An incredible mix of raw and vegetarian/vegan meals shared in fellowship at the Hare Krishna temple), twice daily yoga practice, life coaching and spiritual dharmic talks, as well as the option for massage and healing therapies. Alternatively travelers, or WOOOFING volunteers can participate in karma yoga/ board in exchange for farming/ harvesting or gardening work. Accommodation ranges from shared dorms, single rooms, camping spaces and parks for a van. The community of transient travelers and the resident staff truly make the Krishna village a magical and transformative experience. Stay a week, a month or many months at a time, it will certainly leave a warm impression on your heart long after you go home..."

    "I visited Krishna Village for a week and attended a Balinese massage course. Both my stay and the course were amazing.The village and surrounding nature is so peaceful, I felt an enormous calmness as soon as I stepped out of my car. The organization and the people who live there make you feel at home straight away. The massage course by Dee and Caren was one of a kind; they are wonderful people and teachers and gave the participants the confidence to massage with their heart. The results were amazing. The Krishna devotees at the Temple are very friendly and open to tell you about Hare Krishna, without judging you if you have other viewpoints. And they know how to cook delicious food! All in all I had a unforgettable time and would love to visit this special place in the (near) future."

    "“Life Changing!” I went on a one week retreat expecting to do some yoga and relax. What I got was a profound spiritual awakening , on a piece of property that could be the garden of Eden. The retreat sits just at the bottom of the majestic mountain which houses the temple. With fruit and nut trees scattered all of the property one can never go hungry. We were fed 3 vegetarian meals a day that were lovingly prepared and delicious even for the most avid meat lover. The rooms were clean and fresh. Simple and rustic making me wonder what more could one need to live in bliss. What is really special about this place is how you are welcomed and embraced into a family of strangers who work together to create the absolute haven. The yoga and meditation were on another level that words could not describe. I will be back many times to this garden of eden as amongst strangers. I have never felt more at home."

    "“Great relaxing retreat!” I came for a one week yoga retreat to get away from city life. All the staff were really friendly and had a great warmth to them. The yoga teachers were the most advanced I'd met and had a wealth of experience in all kinds of different yogic styles. I learnt a great deal even from just a few classes. I really enjoyed the location (Yoga village) being on the cusp of rain forest and the sounds of the beautiful birds in the morning. The surrounding farmlands and friendly cows also added so much to the experience. The food was also amazing and I came out of it feeling as light as a feather."

    "“Best holiday destination in a long time”. This place has got it all: broad minded people young and old, green and lush surroundings, wholesome food, no distraction by luxury or nonsense, and most of all, something useful to do. I did the intensive weekend massage course and it was life changing. The trainers were supportive and encouraged us to develop our own style from the start. I love massaging and I had no idea! It's a life skill and I'm going to master it!"

    "We booked in to stay for a week long retreat and were so overwhelmed by the welcoming and friendly atmosphere of the village. Loved doing yoga twice a day and the life coaching and philosophy classes were fantastic! Also really appreciated the opportunity to sit in on talks at the temple which were always really interesting and a good way of being introduced to the Hare Krishna culture. Thanks to everyone and we'll be back!"

    "I really enjoyed my stay at the Krishna Village Eco Yoga Community. After 7 month of traveling i felt kind of burned out and this was the perfect place to recharge my batteries and reconnect to myself. The accommodation is simple but very clean and absolutely sufficient. The people are awesome and the food is incredible. I enjoyed the different yoga styles which have been taught.For me I can say the 8 days changed my life. I look after myself even better and I am very keen on learning more yoga now. I can recommend this place with no doubt. I came out a relaxed and very happy Ines!" website, edited

    "I recently stayed at the Krishna Village and participated in the Intuitive Balinese massage course and it was amazing. The atmosphere of the village is calm and relazed with a great energy in an awesome setting being overlooked by Mount Warning. The accomodation is fantastic and the gardens are colorful and tranquil. The course was perfect and ran for 2 wholesome days with Dee and Caren being great instructors and awesome people. Whether you are seeking a career in massage, or just want to gain another life skill, the course is perfect with a lot of hands on experience. I definitely recommend the course, and looking forward to a career shift. the vegetarian meals were fantastic and it is such a friendly and inviting atmosphere. Eating at the temple was awesome. Thanks Krishna Village! I will be back with my family next time. Looking forward to attending the yoga classes and workshops."

    "Me and my 10 year old daughter had a wonderful, rejuvenating 1 week stay at the Hare Krishna Yoga Retreat, the atmosphere is calming and relaxing, simple but they have everything you need. The people are really friendly and that reflexes on all the travelers. My daughter didn't want to leave (she even got to milk a cow for her first time). Thank you very much Henrike and Mandrea!" website, edited

    "The most perfect week! I've just spent a week at Krishna Village Eco Yoga Community over New Year and the whole experience was incredible! We'd start the day with an early yoga and meditation session, then wander up to the temple for vegetarian breakfast. We had time to relax before a workshop type event in the yoga hall, normally for a discussion where I have learned so much. Afterwhich, We would have a raw lunch with produce picked and grown from the farm. We had more yoga sessions at 5pm. We were served yummy dinners and then we went to bed. To top it all off, I've made some amazing new friends.Everyone should experience the Krishna Village. The world would be a much kinder and calmer place."

    "My partner and I had a truly magical experience at the yoga retreat. Even on our first day of being in the Krishna Village, we were feeling the benefits already. Fuelled with abundance of energy and overwhellmed with happiness and a sense of belonging so much, that I consider quitting my job and stay with them instead to volunteer. Krishna Village is the perfect escape from reality, really helps you bring back to earth and begin a journey of self exploration, reconnect with nature together with your body, mind and soul. It wa so refreshing to be sorrounded everyday by lush green rolling hills and the soothing sounds of nature. Permanently being in a meditative state from the amazing sorroundings. We really would go back in a heart beat and highly recommend it to everyone. Thank you to all the team and volunteers at the Krishna Eco Village Yoga Community, it was a vary special and memorable experience. " website, edited

    "I stayed three months in Krishna village from June to August. It was a beautiful experience, i was sleeping in my tent with many others travelers around. It's a beautiful place, between two cultures. Open your mind, take a deep breath and discover the Krishna culture. You had a lot of activities, massages, yoga, kirtan, dance, life coaching etc "

  • Review by Peeps from Townsville, Australia

    "I stayed here for a week, basically to recuperate after illness. I found the atmosphere to be very quiet, healing and soothing. I slept so soundly in a room (away from the camp kitchen) looking out into bush or rainforest and awoken each morning by the stunning birdlife calls. As has been said before, this is not meant to be 5 star accommodation, but you have everything you need and management are obliging with any requests made. For me the cool air, natural environment, peacefulness and lush green surrounds were everything I was craving. The vegetarian food, I have to say, Im quite addicted now."

    "Time in the valley flies by wonderfully: with yoga, meditation, life coaching, veggie picking and nice walks. This farm is a great spot to go for insights, relaxation or really just some good work in the dirt of an old volcano-valley. Lovely people, lovely little containers, lovely gardens and energy."

    "The spirit of the land here is tangible: calmness, peace, and feeling of ultimate goodness pervade the atmosphere and seeps onto your bones. This is a place where the radiant, abundant nature of life is beautifully expressed in all its beauty and simplicity. The perfect place to leave the world behind and come home to yourself. You can heal yourself just by being a part of this vibration, enjoying all it has to offer. They have a wide range of healing modalities, including a variety of yoga classes, massage, and other therapies, green juices, and delicious vegetarian food support the healing environment. It's been a beautiful experience for me, and I would love to spend as much time there as possible."
