Restorative Yoga at Lilyfield Cottage
A Studio for Women
The tranquil garden studio for Restorative Yoga at Lilyfield Cottage is located on a small acreage in Long Beach, ten minutes from Batemans Bay, in New South Wales.
General Yoga Classes
The small group classes (up to 9 students) are suitable for all ages, regardless of fitness level or experience.
Each class runs for one-and-a-half-hours and includes a breathing practice (pranayama), a sequence of gentle, mindful poses (asanas) and a deep, guided relaxation (yoga nidra), using lavender eye bags, supportive props and heat packs.
Each sequence is designed to release mental and physical tension, strengthen and tone muscles, improve flexibility, support the immune system, and enhance general health and well-being.
An optional herbal tea is offered in the garden after class and is a lovely way to connect and make friends with other students.
Mini Restorative Yoga Retreats
Mini retreats are run regularly on a Sunday afternoon for a maximum of 6 people.
These nurturing and therapeutic sessions run for two hours and offer a passive, restful practice to reset, release stress, and renew a sense of balance and harmony. Suitable for anyone in need of deep rest, self care or a retreat from a hectic life schedule.
Each session includes a breathing practice (pranayama), a grounding self-massage practice, and a sequence of deeply restful poses for up to ten minutes, whilst supported by props, lavender eye bags and heat packs. Calming music and essential oils soothe the nerves as you release both physical and mental tension. A deep, guided relaxation (yoga nidra) and an optional herbal tea after class completes the experience. If you would like to book a private retreat with your own tribe, please contact the studio.
