Sailing Yoga Retreat
Intro & Benefits
A week aboard a beautiful sailing yacht, cruising the Greek islands of the Ionian, with daily yoga practices in a series of unique, spectacular locations.
Meditate and feel | Exercise and move | Laugh and play | Relax and enjoy
This is the healthy choice for your vacation, taking care of your wellbeing, inside and out. Swim in crystal clear waters, live on quality Mediterranean diet, become one with sea, salt and the sun! A holiday for all, yoga-wise and sailing-wise, as our Hatha sessions can be joined even as a begginner, and our sailing is relaxed, moving in tranquil, generally weather-protected areas.
Meet like-minded people and make truthful connections.
Pamper yourself, and improve your body awareness as you slow down, by the water element.
