Greece Sailing Retreat + Yoga

SOLD OUT!

7 days of Island Hopping in the Greek Isles

July 4th — July 11th, 2020

Discover the tranquility of Sailing…

Sailing the Greek Islands is a bucket list item that is every part as rewarding as you'd imagine it to be. I am once again teaming up with Yoga Sailing Holidays to offer this amazing sailing experience based out of the Ionian Sea, which is located on the west coast of Greece. It is the protected part of the country, creating the perfect environment for flat seas, mild winds and the best leisure cruising areas.

When you think about sailing the Greek Islands, you think about the tranquil bays, the calm weather, small villages and sites of natural beauty for you to explore. This itinerary has it all, so join us for your Greek Island sailing vacation as we explore the Blue Caves (Lefkada), discover the Melissani Cave, visit the home of Odysseus in Vathi, and of course the spectacular sailing around the Greek Isles with a yoga class in a new spot each day. Whether it's overlooking the bay, the beach or the harbor, rest assured this is one of the most beautiful places you will ever practice!

Each day after morning yoga, we eat a delicious breakfast on board, then set sail for your daily beach stop, which includes some of the bluest, clearest water you've even seen with magical white cliffs towering over the beach. It truly is a bucket list trip. 

As you sail Greece, you have the freedom to relax as you please with a book, sun bathing, chatting with your fellow yoga retreat guests or learn to sail with your skipper.

There is a limited number of space on each boat, so book as far as you can in advance. Rooms are on a first come, first serve basis. 

Cabins are on a double share basis, so I highly recommend coming with a friend or a partner. I do have TWO spots available with a BUNK rather than a DOUBLE bed (double occupancy price without sharing a bed) so if you are a single and want your own bed for a lower price, book ASAP!

A fun option is to get a small group together and book with 7 friends and you will have an entire boat for yourselves!
