Drop into a month of simplicity and deep learning with Jai Yoga in crystal clear Jindabyne, Australia
This is what our 2019 graduate, Gen had to say about the Shala and Jindabyne as a training location.
"The Shala is still one of the most beautiful places I have had the chance to practice in so far. The space, the energy, the view of the lake, the infrared heating ;). Everything seems so right…so peaceful.
I also think Jindabyne is the perfect location. Not too big but energetically and visually spacious, close to nature, not too much distraction, good cafes. I felt very much at home in that town."
At the gateway to Australia’s highest mountain, Mount Kosciuszko, Jindabyne is beautifully unique. The lakeside alpine air is pure and sweet, feeding untainted prana into your lungs. The environment is clean and clear, providing a perfect natural backdrop for you to drop in, tune out and connect with the teachings of the course.
Jindabyne has four distinct seasons. The November training is in Spring, with temperatures ranging from 20 to 25 degrees celsius. It’s the season of snow-melt and wildflowers, the right time to Ayurvedically cleanse and align with the season of growth and renewal.
Our tight-knit community grew from a diverse group of settlers who braved the area to help build the dam. Jindabyne Yoga Shala, the host venue for the training, is one of the original community buildings. It has only ever housed the Country Women’s Association and holds 60 years of Shakti or feminine creative energy.
All accommodation and food options are closely located, so you can simplify your time and focus fully with the tradition over the month. Most lodging options are walking distance to the Shala so forget the car for some time and get back to basics. We are happy to assist you in finding accommodation and the Shala has kitchen facilities for storing and cooking if you prefer to feed yourself, as we generally do.

How To Get There
Once you get to Jindabyne and settle into the course, you will be within walking distance to everything you need for the month.
