The Buddha Sanctuary at Cable Beach has received some loving TLC over the past few months with a new decking platform, shaded new entry area, landscaped gardens and a sacred rock pond on its way.

The space has also recently transitioned to be known as the Blue Body Buddha Sanctuary - linking it with a well-established meditation and wellness centre, the Blue Body Spiritual Centre based in Perth, WA. Despite the change of name, the Buddha Sanctuary remains closely connected with Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa and offers daily yoga classes for resort guests and locals.

Spending quiet time at the Buddha Sanctuary is a must for anyone visiting Broome. Established more than 10 years ago as a space for the local community, the Buddha Sanctuary is home to a 4 metre tall, crystal Buddha that harnesses the energy of Buddha Kuan Yin (goddess of Mercy and Compassion). The Yoga Pavilion, open decking area and ornamental garden offers visitors a special space for quiet reflection, meditation and relaxation.

The Buddha Sanctuary is open from 7am - 10am and 4pm - 7pm on most days.

Yoga classes are currently held Monday to Friday (6am & 7.30am) with an additional evening class at 5.15pm on Tuesday, Thursdays and Fridays.

Cable beach is well known for its long & spectacular beach. Over recent years there's plenty of places to choose from to stay -- but if you are looking for a nice place for yoga & meditation then check out the Buddha Sanctuary

Helen's yoga classes are the best way to unwind and relax all whilst strengthening your body. At the end of a hard day this is the way to fix everything.

What a wonderful way to start the day in Cable Beach! Helen who to me is a world class yoga teacher takes you through a different practice every day. All equipment is supplied and I just wish now that I'd donated more than the 'gold coin' expectation. Just beautiful. Thank you all. Buddha's Sanctuary so handy to Cable Beach Club... More

At home I love a strong yoga class after work so while on holidays the 6 am class with Helen was just the right amount of stretching for that time of the morning. Not too gentle, not too strong. The Buddha Sanctuary is a serene setting and a cup of green tea in the garden afterwards would have been lovely... More

A bit eclectic, with no dominant tradition, but lovely spot to relax and meditate. Well designed yoga centre and meditation garden, in which you'll find a beautiful christal-carved Kuan Yin buddha.
