Join us for a three-day mid-winter retreat 14-16th of June 2019 at the stunning Mana Retreat, Coromandel.

The retreat will begin on Friday with a welcoming, lunch, and a settling in. Neal and Carla will offer an afternoon unwinding and releasing practice. After dinner, we will dive into a restorative practice. The Saturday schedule will include an active morning and restorative afternoon session with space for walks, reading and feasting. We will conclude the day with a simple restorative practice after dinner.

On Sunday we will share a long morning practice followed by lunch. All the meals are vegetarian and have been co-designed by Karla and Mana to nourish the body and support our yoga practice.

The retreat fee includes all meals, simple accommodation and over 10 hours of tuition. Classes will be co-taught by Karla and Neal, and assisted by skilled senior students.

Our Retreat Schedule

Lunch at Mana on Friday 14th June from 1pm (optional)
Sessions: Friday: 3-5.30pm and 7.30-9pm
Saturday: 9.30am-12noon, 3-5.30pm and 7.30-9pm
Sunday: 9.30am-12noon and 1230pm lunch

We have purposefully timed this retreat for ease in arriving and completion – ie, not rushing to arrive on a Friday night, but instead we encourage you to take the time to leave on Friday morning for a leisurely travel to arrive by lunchtime or the first afternoon session.

We complete our retreat together with a lunch on Sunday so that we have ample time to travel back home. We encourage and invite you to offer yourself a spacious retreat, surrounded by ease!

This nourishing weekend will include active yoga, long restorative practices and iRest™ yoga nidra.

Restorative Yoga is a safe, nurturing and truly joyful practice. Karla and Neal are highly skilled and passionate about this approach and welcome you to this retreat, a place where you may return home to a body and mind that is at ease and fully vibrant.

Restorative Yoga is a gentle practice that can have profoundly beneficial effects which include:

  • A dismantling of chronic tension patterns
  • Enhanced immune function
  • Effective cellular respiration
  • Reduced hyper-tension in the cardiovascular system
  • Reduced mental and emotional tension
  • The body-mind can return to a natural state of ease and equilibrium

We look forward to sharing our passion and love of  resting well with you ~ Neal and Karla 🙂

“Thanks Karla and Neal for the amazing weekend. It was a beautiful gift to be here. Your peaceful and loving energy certainly made the weekend special.”

“Being on retreat with you Karla and Neal is so utterly nourishing, relaxing and restoring. You both live and embody your teachings which makes the experience even more special. Thank you.”
