Both Clare and Jess have spent their lifetimes dancing, moving, stretching, and working inward. They are interested in how yoga can nurture, support, heal, and bring balance to our busy, often over-stimulated lives.

Clare and Jess have sought out, studied, and practiced both traditional and modern yoga and movement practices which are sustainable, authentic, and therapeutic in nature. At their two retreats this year they will draw from these practices to create sessions in which the emphasis is on listening to your inner wisdom, nourishing your body and mins and creating long-term, life-sustaining, change, growth and development.

Join Clare and Jess for a deeply restful, nourishing mid-Winter retreat, a perfect way to top yourself up, realign with your inner knowing, and sow the seeds for positive transformation.


Jess and Clare’s Mid-Winter Retreat at Mana:

Spend a weekend of deeply mindful resting with Clare Etherton and Jessica Devi. Now in its 9th year, our annual mid-Winter relaxation retreat always delivers a beautiful weekend. Our intention is to create a space to reconnect, turn inward, and rest your body, mind, and spirit. Our 2020 focus will be on nurturing the possibilities that lie within us all. Mid-Winter is a potent time to look inward, solidify dreams and directions and sow seeds for possibilities to flourish.

Our daily schedule includes active yoga, restorative yoga, yin yoga, gentle movement practices, guided relaxation techniques, self-inquiry and time in nature.

Mana Retreat Centre is a place of deep healing, the food is nourishing, fresh, and prepared with love and the team is dedicated to their vision for a place of community, peace, and wellness. Mana is always a healing, welcoming, and wonderful place to be!

The Teaching Team



Clare is a Yoga teacher, Therapeutic Dance Practitioner, Early childhood educator, Mother and is completing her training to be a Dance Movement Therapist. She loves the idea that we can be bodyful as well as mindful and values the wealth of wisdom, emotion, and somatic knowledge that our bodies hold and can share.

“Over the years, I have found solace in movement practices and have become increasingly drawn to the power of supported rest as an antidote to our often busy and stressful lives. I am curious about the stories our bodies tell, and the memories they hold, and feel yoga and movement practices offer valuable resources to learn, feel, communicate and gently guide ourselves back towards balance and integration, one breath at a time.” -Clare Etherton
