About This Event

Love life, live yoga: Turn your PASSION into a fulfilling heart-centred career as a teacher or even start running your OWN yoga studio.

Do you love yoga and would like to make a living by following your passion? Ready to deepen your practice and learn to live a wholesome yogic lifestyle? Are you keen to immerse yourself in an inspiring spiritual environment that is applying yogic wisdom in all areas of life, from nutrition to meditation, from physical movement to spiritual practice? Then join us at the Krishna Village for our 6 week full immersion Yoga Teacher Training.

Becoming a yogi

At the Krishna Village, we are aiming to revive and teach yoga in its wholeness, so you can BE a yogi, rather than just DO some yoga. Our Yoga Teacher Training is therefore a full immersion program that spans 6 weeks and will allow you to experience yogic living in its entirety. From daily morning yoga to seva in our organic gardens, from philosophy classes to delicious vegetarian food preparation, from kirtan singing to mantra meditation you will live and breathe yoga, while being immersed in a kind, loving and supportive community. You will not only learn all required practices to become a fully accredited yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance, but will also gain teaching practice with real students through our retreat centre by co-teaching with fellow trainees whilst growing into teaching your own classes.

About the course

We offer a full immersion program that spans 6 weeks, living in a vibrant community of about 70 yogis, spiritual seekers, retreat guests and backpackers on the “New Govardhana” eco farm between Byron Bay and the Gold Coast.

Nourish your soul with Yoga Teacher Training that addresses the science of yoga holistically, including postures and philosophy as well as ayurveda, kirtan, anatomy and physiology, nutrition, meditation and mindfulness.

Teach classes with REAL students while being guided and supported by a team of internationally experienced yoga teacher trainers.

Gain Yoga Alliance international certification and some hands on business training to run your own heart centred yoga business

Don’t want to get certified? No problem – join us as a Full Immersion Retreat guest!



The Krishna Village can host up to 75 people in a combination of rooms, dorms and camping spots. There are usually around 30 full time volunteers who work in our organic gardens and maintain the grounds, 15-25 retreat guests or Karma Yogis and up to 20 yoga teacher trainees.

All rooms have shared amenities. The amenities block includes showers, toilets and a coin operated laundry (byo laundry powder). Common areas include the kitchen & campfire area (the heart of the Krishna Village), the reading room (with Internet hotspot) and the yoga hall where we gather for classes.

Prices for the training vary, according to the type of accommodation you choose.

Delicious Vegetarian Food

The Krishna Farm has been producing organic veggies since the 1980s and has therefore fantastic conditions to grow excellent produce. We grow as much of our own food as we can, and otherwise buy locally wherever possible. We provide 3 delicious vegetarian meals every day, with lunches taking place at the Krishna Village community kitchen, and breakfast and dinners – mostly Indian style – served at the prasadam hall, next to the temple.

All our food is prasadam – sacred food prepared in a consciousness of loving service. Like in other cultures, we offer our food before we eat to say Grace and thank the Divine for the sun, the rain, and all the visible and invisible blessings necessary to co-create a delicious meal. Feel free to sing along with us, or just listen and enjoy…


The Krishna Farm

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 1000 acre property with orchards, certified organic veggie gardens, cows, horses, streams and swimming holes in abundance.

New Govardhana serves as an ashram to a community of yogis who aspire to live according to their deepest vows and commitments on their path of service, spiritual contentment and happiness (Bhakti Yoga). Their service and dedication make this location a beautiful place of growth, healing and spiritual awakening. If you are interested, please come along and visit our beautiful Radha Govardhandhari temple and learn ore about the origins or our “simple giving, high thinking” philosophy.

Krishna Village – 525 Tyalgum Rd. – Eungella, NSW 2484– Australia



The spirit of the land here is tangible; a calmness, peace, and feeling of ultimate goodness pervades the atmosphere, and seeps onto your bones. This is a place where the radiant, abundant nature of life is beautifully expressed, in all it’s beauty and simplicity. The perfect place to leave the world behind and come home to yourself. - Lili (Melbourne)

Venue Highlights

Nestled in the foothills of Mount Warning, in the heart of the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, our Hare Krishna Farm “New Govardhana” is a beautiful 1000 acre property with orchards, organic 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.

New Govardhana serves as an ashram to a community of yogis who aspire to live according to their deepest vows and commitments on their path of service, spiritual contentment and happiness (Bhakti Yoga). Their service and dedication make this location a beautiful place of growth, healing and spiritual awakening.

Apart from immersing themselves into their spiritual lives, the devotees also run a school, a cow protection program, big organic gardens and orchards, and an infinite number of yogic festivals and retreats throughout the year. In this context, the Krishna Village serves as an outreach program, inviting retreat guests, course participants and spiritual seekers from all over the world and all ages to participate in the farm's activities and experience a simple, happy and wholesome lifestyle.

      What the world needs to be

    My time at the Krishna Village demonstrated what community living is all about. Nothing but harmony, respect and unconditional acceptance for everyone who was there. The world needs more places like this to show how beautiful a strong community spirit can be.

  • Travis Willis   December 03, 2019


    I really am grateful for the whole experience to the people that live there and the village volunteers to the great food and quality yoga, this has been the best week of my life and I respect the space so much.

      Amazing experience

    I went to Krishna Village to attend Ayurvedic Cooking class. I reached there from Gold Coast airport. The people there are really amazing. I got fresh Vegetable Juice after I reach there (as I was tired with my travel), thanks to the Chef who made it, she is truly amazing. Then I started to settle down, attended an Yoga class, Kirtan and introduction to Ayurveda. We had amazing lunch and the dinner in the temple is priceless. Our training has been kicked off, we rested that night. I was having flu when I reached Krishna Village and was worried if I can be part of the group as I may spread germs. To my surprise, I was completely normal on day 2, my flu is just gone. Day 2 is started with an early morning Yoga, breakfast and our training, yoga and then amazing dinner in the temple. I had a similar routine on day 3, early morning Yoga, my training and reached back to Sydney on the same day. It was truly relaxing and absolutely blissful stay. The people are really lovely. The beautiful Krishna Village and the mountains around it are just awesome. I look forward to go there again.

      Karma Yoga

    Staying at the farm and volunteering part time was a terrific experience. I worked in the gardens and loved it every minute. The delicious meals are huge and fresh from the gardens. Everyone is very respectful of each other and good to be around. I highly recommend staying here at the Village

      More of a backpackers campsite than a retreat

    I stayed one night in a shipping container room in November 2019. I loved the yoga classes, visits to the temple (especially the festival celebration on the Sunday evening) and walks around the farm. It is a shame it is not looking lush and well tended at the moment due to the extreme drought and bush fire conditions. However, this venue is really a backpackers campsite providing free accommodation and food in exchange for labour not a retreat to come to for rest and relaxation. My room was right next to the communal kitchen/common area so there was substantial noise from excited young travellers sharing tales of their love exploits and travels until about 9pm at night. This started again at 6am so I didn't get much sleep. I also did not find it the friendliest of places to visit. The young girl on reception was lovely (once I found her) but I found I really had to go a long way out of my comfort zone (and I'm a naturally outgoing person) to interact with any of the villagers, participants in various courses and long-term backpackers, all of whom knew each other already. I think someone with less confidence would really struggle in this regard. I booked a hypno therapy session for my second day but it proved a complete waste of $140.00 - even the therapist said she had "run out of options". This (sadly) left me feeling ripped off, disappointed and negative about my whole experience at Krishna Village.

      Intuitive Balinese Massage Course

    I thought this course was wonderful. I walked away feeling confident to deliver a massage. Dee and Karen are beautiful souls who make you feel comfortable and are very giving of their energy, hearts, knowledge and time. I would happily recommend this course. The food at Krishna Village is yummy and plentiful, there is no chance to feel hungry!

  • Sophie Chamings   November 10, 2019

      Lovely escape from busy life

    I stayed in the Lotus Pod. It was modern and clean, with a lovely energy,just like the entire village. The food was exceptional, the people amazing, the environment stunning and the classes were fabulous too! If you love nature and simple living, this is a fantastic place to be xxx

  • Sue Dooley   October 13, 2019


    Visited a relative who is having an extended stay at Krishna Village. We were warmly welcomed and left feeling refreshed by the lovely community and beautiful surroundings.

  • Alex Tsymbalov   October 07, 2019

      A very special getaway

    The communication leading up to my stay was incredible, informative and really got me thinking about the place. Accommodation was simple, clean and very comfortable. The pizza night was my first night and perhaps it’s a big call to make but I truly think it was the best I’ve ever had. Perhaps it was the environment, the people, Kent playing the guitar, the atmosphere. All just so very lovely and instantly made me feel at home. The next few days with yoga, the syntropic agriculture course with Thiago and of course the amazing food were also incredible. The meals and the Sunday feast truly do need a special mention, so so delicious. I have never met so many warm, kind and thoughtful people in such a short time before. I am making plans to come back with the whole family so they can share the experience also.

  • Crystal Stow   October 07, 2019

      Beautiful Peaceful

      6-day Retreat & Volunteering

    6 days to get away from life in a big city was both too short & also perfect amount of time to reset. I got my hands into the earth, left my phone in my room & spoke to strangers who so quickly became friends. Reconnected with a good life that sometimes gets so lost in cities. I learned meditation, yoga, self-love, breathing& the art of being able to stop at any given time, to connect to myself again if I ever feel overwhelmed. So many different personalities, ways of life & souls I learned from and listened to which is important in order to show true compassion. Already looking forward to going back. It will become a regular in my life. Thank you Krishna Village 🙏🏼 💫

  • Rochelle Primo   September 03, 2019

      Magical Place

    I always love coming back to Krishna Village. I feel so welcome and at home. The people are friendly,the yogis are beautiful and the food is so tasty. 🙏🏽

  • Debbie Kelly   August 28, 2019

      Affordable and Excellent Experience

    I attended Krishna Village for a yoga retreat in August 2019 for 3 nights. I stayed in a single room/cabin, which was basic but had everything I needed, including a heater for the colder nights. Bathrooms are shared and basic, but are functional. The yoga classes were excellent and the studio is beautiful, overlooking the hillside with cows in the foreground. Food is basic, but either grown onsite or sourced locally. Overall, amazing value and a perfect place to disconnect!

  • Bronwen Bender   August 21, 2019

      Calming community feel amazing food

    I havd a lovely week long stay at Krishna village as a karma yoga guest worling 4 hrs a day in the garden in exchange for a lower fee. The people were very friendly, beds comfy, scenery stunning. Skillful yoga teachers and very tasty nourishing food. Would definitely recommend.

      Glorious Venue with Incredible People and Support

    We love Krishna Village so much. We are an outside organisation teaching Life Coaching and Personal Development Skill and were looking for a retreat venue. We are not affiliated with Krishna but we found this venue and support people to be totally fantastic. Everyone was so lovely, welcoming and enthusiastic about what we do, from our first contact to the on going care by the event manager Danielle, who is amazing and a total delight. The environment is incredibly beautiful and the energy peaceful and energising. We loved the fact that the cows were all around and that we could freely visit the baby cows and be so welcomed by their carers. The food that was cooked for us was beautiful. The vegetables were picked that morning and cooked with so much love and care by Dee and her team. Conor the IT person was really lovely and helpful and the room was beautifully cleaned and energised every morning before we arrived. There was so much attention to detail and so much love, care and support put into everything. It was such a pleasure and is now our all time favourite venue! Thank you so much everyone involved at Krishna Village we so highly recommend you.

      Amazing journey of finding mindfulness

    It has been amazing journey of finding mindfulness while doing yoga, meditation and volunteer service. Really grateful for the opportunity to volunteer at the garden where I could harvest fresh cherry tomatos, lettuce and all sorts of veggies! Also felt very special to be allowed to help out in the temple to prepare and serve vegetarian food. Feeling really great after eating vegetarian food for a week -- I can probably turn vegetarian if I can cook such good vegetarian cuisines!

  • Amir InsideAut   June 23, 2019

      Amazing Place, amazing people

    If you ask me Krishnavillage is a place where dreams come true. It offers all you need if you want to get away from the busy city life and connect with nature, if you want to deepen your spirituality or if you just want to find out more about the practice of yoga. The area is surrounded by lush forests, mountains and a river, the food is delicious, plenty and on top of that healthy. But the best part is with out a question the beautiful souls you going to meet there. In short krishnavillage is a place where you can be yourself without any compromises!

  • Shobha Karenglu   June 09, 2019
