Imagine daily yoga practice in nature: What would it be like to live on the water, continuously feeling that gentle movement of the waves like being in a mother’s womb? And how about diving into the crystall clear blue first thing you get up, or meditating at sunrise? Certainly you will enjoy the contrast of the refreshing Sea to the intense Yoga sessions. And finally, at the day’s end, after worshipping the sunset, you will glide into a deep sleep, safely sheltered in your cosy cabin and carried by the softly rocking boat on the water
This Yoga Sailing Retreat is suitable for all levels of Yoga practice!
Even if you have never been on a sailboat before, the Ionian Sea is the ideal place to try it – it is known for it’s calm seas with little swell!
Imagine this trip not with a rigid yoga schedule but rather in sync with the wind and the journey of each sailing day. Tommy, your skipper (and so much more), will give you a taste of sailing in the Ionian archipelago at its best – he will navigate you to the best bays and spots for your yoga sessions with Flo and advise you about explorations of the coast and hinterland.
Flo’s Flows are an unconventional and lighthearted fusion of steady and grounding poses of Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and fluid, intuitive motions. In this type of practice, the focus is on the individuality and charisma of the group and each participant. Each session is born in the moment, experimenting with various flowing movement sequences. Influences of holistic yoga, Qi Gong and also Ecstatic Dance are woven into a breath-based experience
Besides yogic practice there will be plenty of time to enjoy sailing along the coast, swimming in the clear water and relaxing in the sunshine.
Florian Jannik Schiegg is a very passionate and creative BYV certified yoga instructor and musician. His first encounter with yoga was on a trip through South East Asia ten years ago. Since then, he has been continuously practicing and developing his skills and knowledge, studying numerous scriptures and philosophies. He works as an international yoga instructor and musician.
The comfortable Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 54 DS sailing yacht MORPHEUS will be your yoga resort on the water, surrounded by a scenery of outmost beauty, while you sail along the Ionian Sea in Greece.
The cock-pit seats 10-12 people and the generous deck is a space to spread out and relax in the sunshine.
The warm wooden interiors are decorated and equipped with style and touch of luxury. Airy and with extra head room, the deck saloon feels light and spacious. The galley’s layout is well suited for preparing delicious meals. Air Conditioning, cabin fans and electrical toilets add to the comfort of our passengers.
Lots of accessories make life on the water even more enjoyable.
Three double cabins are equipped with air conditioning and a private shower room with electric toilet. Cabin 4 offers two bunk beds and uses the deck saloon bathroom. The berths are allocated on a first come basis, female and male guests sleep in separate cabins unless booking together.
We provide high quality bedding, pillows, towels, bathrobes and toiletries made in Greece by eco-designer labels Coco-Mat® and Zealots of Nature®.
Please note that space below deck on board a sailing yacht is naturally limited and comfort is therefore not comparable to that of a hotel room
