Woodgate Beach

Woodgate Beach is on the Qld coast just over an hour drive from Hervey Bay and 40 minutes drive from Bundaberg. 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 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.

Our Teachers

Polly

“I have been devoted to teaching for more than 20 years and I continue to be excited for students. People who practice yoga literally feel more alive. They build physical energy and become more creative and happier. Yoga sparks something inside of people. It wakes them up and shows them a deeper and more exciting part of themselves.” Polly has over 30 years of personal practice experience and first qualified with the International Yoga teachers Association in 2001. She later focused her training in the Iyengar method of practice and holds a senior level 3 teaching certificate with Iyengar Yoga Australia.

Vera

“Yoga works through the physical body. In the Iyengar Yoga tradition, the practice invites the mind to pay attention and become quiet. When the mind is quiet the body can respond rather than react. This is the key to a nourishing practice. It is also the key to aging with confidence and living a life of purpose and peace. Every action, every moment of life has meaning. This is what inspires me to teach.” Vera is a long-term practitioner of Yoga and began teaching when she retired from Community Health nursing in 2013. Vera qualified with the International Yoga Teachers Association in 2014 and achieved Level 1 certification with Iyengar Yoga Australia in 2019.
