Yoga with Jack: The Sailing Retreat

“It's by losing balance that we find it”
Yoga and Sailing - Body and Mind Balance

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!

 

What is Special?

Yoga with Jack is an experience both of the surrounding nature as of the body itself. You will discover carefully selected nature spots with all your senses and feed body and mind off the different energies and elements surrounding you.

With a background in professional dance, Jack makes the movements flow into a choreography, capturing the surrounding energy and spreading it again. Each class is designed to respect each body type and to push that body in a secure and respectful way to surpass itself.

You will learn to listen to your body and get to know all the benefits that yoga can bring you.

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. The knowledgeable crew will spoil you with delicious meals and show you the most beautiful spots of the Northern Ionian coast and islands.
