We’ve all heard the benefits of yoga. But we think yoga in nature is even better. Connect with the breath, stretch out those tight muscles, and take your quest for holiday relaxation to the next level with these five breathtaking locations for your next yoga practice.
Take a class at Killalea
What better place for yoga than the pristine Killalea Reserve? An easy drive south of Sydney, and minutes from Shellharbour, these green rolling hills and beautiful ocean views are the perfect backdrop for a yoga session to nourish the mind, body and soul. Prefer to practice in a group, or looking for instruction? Yoga on the Move at Killalea offer weekly yoga and meditation sessions.
Breathe deeply at Bonny Hills
Take time to do what makes you happy at Bonny Hills. Perched atop a headland with million-dollar views over Rainbow Beach, this pretty park on the mid coast of NSW makes for an awesome outdoor yoga studio. Roll out the mat on the headland and watch for the migrating whales as you practice your balancing and stability poses.
Feel nourished at Nambucca Heads
Perfectly positioned between Brisbane and Sydney and an easy 40-minute drive south of Coffs Harbour, Nambucca Heads is perched atop a spectacular headland with incredible views at every turn. This dog-friendly sanctuary is an ideal spot for practicing some downward dogs of your own, surrounded by lush greenery and with mesmerising ocean views.
Clear your head at Hungry Head
Let the peace and quiet work its magic at Hungry Head, a secluded oasis of 10 cabins nestled within rare littoral rainforest. Positioned on the mid-north coast of NSW, this tranquil hideaway is just a short stroll from the Hungry Head headland. With its picturesque views over Hungry Head beach, this is a superb location for a revitalising yoga sequence or two.
Loosen up at Lennox
Bask in nature’s beauty at Lennox Head, and throw in some yoga poses for good measure. This lovely part of the NSW North Coast is known for its laidback atmosphere, picture-perfect scenery and restorative powers. And for yoga with a view, visit the Pat Morton Lookout. Bring a mat along for the hike and enjoy the sweeping ocean vista as you stretch it out.
Yoga is known for its physical and mental benefits, from increasing strength and flexibility to improving our sense of well-being. But outdoor yoga takes it even further.
It increases confidence and energy. It heightens your sense of awareness. It also encourages a deeper connection with nature. The perfect antidote for the stresses of our everyday lives.
So take your practice outside the studio. Relax, recharge and rejoice in some of the world’s most beautiful surrounds. And don’t forget your mat on your next visit to a Reflections Holiday Parks.
