Itinerary

Welcome to Mykonos, an idyllic getaway for cosmopolitan fun-lovers. A magnet to the world’s most glamorous personalities since the 70s, Mykonos today attracts yogis, nature lovers, foodies and athletes. Meet your skipper and yoga instructor at our sailing yacht, where you will be shown to your cabin and given a briefing about life on board and the schedule of your week-long trip. Meet your fellow travelers and explore the island at your own pace for the rest of the day.

 

 

 

 

Kalimera with Pranayama and Vinyasa flow to optimise your day’s energy. Later in the day enjoy a burst of sun and sea, doing some water-sports and swimming. Just before sunset, take a Yin Yoga session including asanas which nourish joints, ligaments, and tendons. In the evening, stroll around the tiny streets of Mykonos to look at the lovely shops and art galleries before dinner.

Blessed with magnificent and highly revered beaches, renowned for the excellent locally produced foods and wines (as well as the local Kitron liquor), and remarkable archaeological sites, Naxos is your next island hop. With an active main town where you can admire the Venetian architecture and Kastro (castle) area, the island also offers endless opportunities for practising yoga on golden sand secluded beaches.

Our next sailing escapade takes you to the “Small Cyclades”. This group of islands, comprised of six main islands and numerous tiny ones, was until recently a long-held sacred secret amongst Greeks who relish their privacy, fresh seafood, non-commercial set-ups and oodles of stunning natural beauty. These places are still far from mainstream and remain a bona fide pleasure for those who love raw nature imbued with a soundtrack of lapping waves and choruses of cicadas. Your yoga classes focus on different types of asanas aiming at increasing spine flexibility, abdominal and arm strength, practising concentration, mindfulness and more.

Back to Naxos but at a different side of the island, we will explore atmospheric mountain villages and ancient sites. Sailing around the Cyclades islands is an experience of a lifetime and don’t just take our word for it, you may as well want to participate in navigation or to learn the knots! Your skipper will take you to secret coves for swimming just after you morning yoga practice.

Today we will have the opportunity to visit Rinia an uninhabited island close to Mykonos and of course Delos. In Rinia we will enjoy a fantastic beach yoga practice, while on Delos we will enrich our knowledge of ancient Greek history. The Cyclades fulfil their collective name (kyklos means circle) by encircling the sacred island of Delos Unesco World Heritage Site, one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece, and the birthplace of twins Apollo and Artemis.

On our last day we will enjoy a sunset meditation session followed by an aperitif  drink on-board and a group dinner in one of our favourite restaurants.

All too soon it’s time to pack your bags and be transported to the airport or to the port for your journey back home or to your next destination.

Yoga Instructor Julia Boszormenyi

Julia came across yoga a long time ago as a student/practitioner in one of her travel expeditions in Bali and was drawn to the energy and the life changing power of this ancient practice.

As a former marketing professional she understands the positive impact of yoga for people who work in highly intensive and demanding environments.

By listening to her inner voice, Julia completed a 200-hour yoga training course in Greece and a 500-hour advanced course in India, where she deepened her understanding of the science of yoga.

“I believe that by teaching yoga, I can help people develop a greater understanding of their bodies and psyche. Through yoga I want to inspire people to live freely with greater clarity of thought, to become stronger inside and to remain focused to achieve a happier, healthier life.

In my classes, I love to combine creative flow and sequencing. My main style of yoga is Vinyasa, focusing on aligning body movement and breathing''.
