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.

A singled timed transfer to Mykonos international airport is provided.

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''.

Minimum and maximum age limit

We require our participants to be above 18 years old. In the case of families we offer private Sail & Yoga trips with no age limitation.

Weather

All sailing routes are designed based on statistically most probable wind speed and direction in the Cyclades islands. However, should adverse conditions prevail (too strong winds or opposite direction winds that prevent us from anchoring in specific bays, we have plan B scenarios already available meaning alternative hikes if necessary or alternative mooring locations/ports in the island in concern. In such rare occasions, it is up to the judgement of the skipper to alter or cancel a sailing route for safety reasons.

What do I need to bring?

Small day-pack, sandals, long sleeve shirts, water-resist jacket and trousers, sunglasses, hat, sun cream, water can, bathing suit, head-torch, toiletries.
We would ask you to bring 1 soft-suitcase per person. On a sailing boat there is no luggage storage space - all passengers keep their luggage in their cabins.

Responsible travel

It is one of our core principles to design and operate tours in a way to positively impact the local socioeconomic and natural environment. Depending on the island we visit each time, we try as much as possible to connect with local communities, learn and support local small businesses.
Additionally we observe and learn about the local flora and fauna and take action whenever possible, to support beach cleaning initiatives.
