The Yoga Retreaters Guide to Yoga Retreats

Happy Retreaters

A recent Yoga Retreat at Bawley Bush Retreat!


I’m drowning, if that’s possible, in an avalanche of praise for the beauty and serenity of our cottages and function room from yoga retreaters. 

Back in October last year, one of our yoga regulars, Nicole, conducted a teacher’s workshop for more than thirty people who all stayed on our property. 

“Bawley Bush Cottages is our absolute favourite location on the South Coast for yoga retreats.  We love the natural setting that feels miles from anywhere, and the cottages are all cosy and comfortable.  The main hall is set up perfectly for yoga classes – high ceilings, timber floors, plenty of natural light, excellent sound equipment, and of course the log fire for winter retreats.  We especially love the fact that we can be fully self-contained with our own chef, and literally have the property all to ourselves.I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to host very special and intimate yoga retreats.”~ Nicole Walsh | Yoga Teacher & Teacher Trainer, InYoga, Sydney

Yoga Workshop at Bawley Bush Retreat

Cockatoo Function Room

I’ve participated in a two day yoga retreat in the hall so I appreciate the sincerity of her response to this latest workshop. The feeling in the room is so right for both the physical and the spiritual aspects of yoga practise. Maybe it’s the timber, some of it really old, such as the enormous beams, whole ironbark logs that stood in the forest for hundreds of years before they ended up holding up our ceiling.

The beautiful Lake Willinga

Lake Willinga

Maybe it’s the beautiful casement windows that fold right back to frame the bushland setting, the grey and green of the trees with the distant glimmer of lake.

Whatever it is, the ghosts of the past, the seclusion from traffic noise and neighbouring properties, the only sounds the distant swoosh of the ocean, the muted shrieks of a flock of yellow tail cockatoos as they aim for the casuarinas bearing the nuts they love to eat.  The only visual stimulation the ever-present humming birds, the flash of blue wrens, sea eagles gliding silently overhead. The sights and sounds of the surrounding bush are perfect for any retreat, but especially for yoga and meditation. Click here to find out more information.

Bawley Bush Retreat Breakfast

Seasonal fruit salad

As Nicole says in her testimonial, the yoga group brings their own chef, Angie, who with her assistants, cook all the vegetarian meals in our commercial grade kitchen and the group has the run of the thirty acre property as well as a cosy log fire to take off the chill in winter.
