Q: Why Bundaberg?

A: There is a growing yoga trend in the world and in our region at the moment. More and more people are curious about yoga and are interested in trying it out. Living in our region are some very talented and experienced yoga teachers.

The Bundaberg region is blessed with perfect winter weather, clean air and beautiful natural spaces that are complementary to the practice of yoga. We would like to invite visitors from Queensland, Australia and the world to enjoy the magic of our region while immersing themselves in a yoga experience.
