Woodgate Beach studio

Yoga will nourish you in a way that you thought was impossible. Whilst working with our body to release tension and stress you make peace with it. In this there is great relief mentally and emotionally. You will have more energy and experience greater contentment when you practice yoga regularly.

Our studio is located at 80 Acacia Street Woodgate Beach 

On 19 July 2022  local classes commence for Woodgate residents and visitors. The first classes in Woodgate will be on a Tuesday morning at 11.00am and Tuesday evening at 5.15pm.  As there is a limit of 10 students per class we have decided to run the classes as 5 week pre booked courses. Each session is 90 minutes.

Booking links to courses commencing 30 August
Book into the Tuesday 11am 5 week course commencing 30 August. (3 places still available)
Book into the Tuesday 5.15pm 5 week course commencing 30 August  (2 places still available)

After the August/September courses there will be 3 weeks of casual drop in classes. (Oct 4,11,18) People who have been attending the courses and who have missed a class can make up their missed class during these 3 weeks.  Other students/people who want to try the classes, can drop in as casual students at a rate of $20 per class   Please note that we have another retreat during the week 24 -28 Oct, so no classes that week for local students. 

We will know more after the next round of courses about the numbers of continuing students and if we can create classes for those continuing and start a new set of class times for absolute introductory students... in which case, in November,  we would move the introductory time to either Wednesday morning around 9am or Saturday morning 9.30am.  


We regularly run retreat programs for students from across Qld, interstate and over seas. See below for the list of retreats currently open for booking. Details about the programs of each reteat are included within the booking links.

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.
