Learn the synergy of Effort and Surrender. These two polarities will be explored as you discover how they can be powerfully united to navigate all of life’s twists & turns. During these four days, you will focus on your own specific intention and then learn how to alternate between effort & surrender in order to arrive at your goal. This retreat will not only be rejuvenating, it will be enlightening as well.

Your retreat with Denise at Mana:

Hike, explore, eat fab food. Advance your yoga practice (or begin one), make new friends.

Located in the Coromandel these retreats are set on beautiful grounds, with delicious organic and vegetarian food. The packed yoga schedule will still leave plenty of time for you to relax, restore, and soak up the good vibes.

Unwind & decompress with only nature and the birds to distract you from the daily offerings. Immersing yourself in fresh goodness and getting out of your routine can help with your sense of renewal as you reset & remove old habits.

Deepen your wellbeing practice and let us share our wisdom & knowledge with you.

No yoga experience required, all levels, ages & walks of life are welcome. We promise that you will be made to feel at home.

What is included in your retreat:

  • Arrive after 3 pm on Thursday 15 October to settle in and arrive, 4 pm introduction session. Retreat completes on Sunday 18 October with a closing circle and 12-noon lunch
  • Four days immersed in your practise

Denise Fergusen

Denise’s yoga classes combine breath, movement & music to help you get the ‘yoga high’, an experience that occurs when one is in perfect alignment not just anatomically, but also when one’s deepest most heartfelt desires and beliefs are expressed perfectly in their life. Her classes have a large emphasis on carrying this feeling of perfection through the class from start to finish, sometimes allowing the experience to be the peak, and sometimes working her students towards a peak pose. She is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance (ERYT) and has been running popular retreats at Mana since 2010. ‘I invite you to try a class with me online and if you enjoy it, come away with me for a weekend.
