Practice Yoga The Buddhist Sanctuary at Cable Beach offers a peaceful place to relax and let go. Yoga was something I loved from a young age. After living in this area for 10 years, I finally went to the sanctuary to do a private yoga session under the 3-metre tall Buddha statue. The setting was beautiful and the evening breeze was wonderful. It was hard not to feel that I had to spend the entire time with Big Buddha watching over me. This space is available to the public seven days a week. https://bluebody.com.au/locations/buddha-sanctuary/
