The 35 hour retreats are fully catered (all meals vegetarian - advise if additional dietary requirements) The 10 and 20 hour workshop/retreats are not catered. Details of our daily retreat schedules will be provided in coming weeks.
The retreat studio has lots of natural light and air, and is fully airconditioned and fly screened. The high ceilings and beautiful hard wood flooring creates a grounding and at the same time, uplifting space for our practice. We have all the yoga necessities and more.. mats, blocks, ropes etc. If you use an eye pillow, please bring your own as for health reasons we cannot provide these.
Woodgate Beach is on the Qld coast just over an hour drive from Hervey Bay and 40 minutes drive from Bundaberg. If driving along the Bruce highway, Anam Cara studio is 30 minutes from Childers. Woodgate Beach sits within the Burrum Coast National Park. The vista of ocean, sky and sand, backed with paperbark forest that sings with kookaburras, is the perfect location to come on retreat. The studio is purpose built, fully equipped, located in the township of Woodgate and within easy walking distance to a range of wonderful accommodation options. For individuals and couples the Woodgate Beach House complex is excellent value. For those who like to camp NRMA caravan park is a 150 meters away from our front gate. Most accommodation in Woodgate is "holiday house style" - meaning it has a fully equipped kitchen. It also means no room service. There are generally washing machines, but do check. Groceries will need to be purchased at either Hervey Bay, Bundaberg or Childers shopping centers as Woodgate has limited stores.
The location is extremely beautiful and accommodation and travel logistics present a great opportunity for yoga friends across the country and from overseas to coordinate and plan a yoga holiday.
When attending the 35 hour retreats, we are able to arrange transport from Bundaberg or Hervey Bay to Woodgate Beach if you provide flight details in advance. From Sydney it is best to fly Virgin direct to Hervey Bay. Other flights will go via Brisbane and from Brisbane it is best to fly to Bundaberg. A taxi from Bundaberg airport to Woodgate is approximately $140. Car hire is around $80 per day.
If you travel alone on a low budget we are able to assist with shared holiday house accommodation. (see below for more information)
