LightSailing Retreats Yoga Retreat Malta Program

In 2011, Nikolay and Pavlina went on a journey from Holland to India onboard their 23 feet sailing yacht Svetlina with the idea of living in peace, feeling love, fusing with nature, to reach enlighten and to create the paradise on Earth. Well, now 7 years later, and thousands of miles behind, with two kids more and a lot of sun in the eyes, salt on the skin, wind in the hair, and daily Karma yoga meditation, they realized that “Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others (Brian Tracy)." That is how the idea of 7 days family adventure sailing and yoga retreat in Malta was born. A miracle journey filled with love and light.

For those who have children, you will enjoy being together and having fun activities, sailing, beach, swimming, snorkeling, free diving, exploring caves and historical places of interest, art and craft creating, playing family and spiritual games, and more. You will have a light time together. You will be able to feed your soul escaping completely with yoga classes, meditation, Pranayama, sound therapy, mantra chanting or relaxation.

Have your dinner outside or chill out on the boat while the nanny takes care of your children and entertain them. You will have the opportunity to learn how to be more conscious in life with the inspiring seminars and workshops for parenting and individual grow.

Families without children will face the real everyday life with children in different stages. You will have the opportunity to learn about pregnancy, birth and home birth, care of babies, and parenting. You will gain more confidence and knowledge to become conscious parents.

The weekly plan is to make a full ride to the Maltese archipelago and experience the beauty of the islands of Malta, Comino, and Gozo according to the meteorology conditions. During this "retreat", you will have the pleasure to visit the Blue Lagoon, one of the most beautiful bays in Malta and an excellent place to anchor and spend the night under the stars.

You will visit Fungus Rock with the stunning virgin landscape. The sea provides perfect snorkeling. Mgarr ix-Xini will also be visited. This place has long and narrow waterway leading to a beach at its extremity with a very good holding ground. The place is excellent for swimming. You will go to Gebel tal-Halfa, a beautiful little bay situated behind a large rock which provides good anchorage. The place is quite close to shelter in Mgarr Harbor should weather turn bad.

You will stop by Ramla Bay, a beautiful sandy beach in an idyllic environment. You will see clear blue waters and the dramatic cliffs of Blue Grotto. You will spend some time at Mgarr Marina, Gozo’s main harbor. The harbor is very picturesque. Mgarr is the gateway to Gozo’s romantic and unspoiled scenery.

Il-Hofra l-Kbira provides unspoiled anchorage with clean clear waters for bathing. You will find this place ideal for a leisurely day at anchor or overnight stays. You will also visit St. Paul Islet where you can have superb swimming and snorkeling here. What is most conspicuous on this island is the statue of St. Paul, where it is said the saint was shipwrecked on his way to Rome to be prosecuted in 16 A.D. This was when Malta was converted to Christianity.

Retreat location

Malta is an archipelago in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. It is religiously, politically, culturally, and economically part of Europe, but at the same time, it is lying on the African tectonic plate and is vibrating with the vibes of the Dark Continent, mystic and secret. Malta is blessed with perfect weather and around 3,000 hours of sunshine per year. The ideal combination of sun, wind, sea, and rocks is great for sailing, yoga, meditation, and having some good time.

A long time ago, Malta was really the heaven on earth, the lost paradise, the land of the mother Goddess. On the island, you can still see magnificent temples more ancient than the pyramids in Egypt dedicated to divine femininity with floor plans which echo abundant maternal curves. One can easily imagine the concept of entering the "womb" of the temple for communion with the Goddess, and emerging "re-born" into the sunlight. Namaste, this is a true Malta magic experience.

Malta is also a "home" of the knights of Saint John, a story of Caravaggio, Saint Paul and the legend of his shipwreck and expel of the poisons snakes, Jean de la Valette, a Blue Lagoon and a Blue Grotto, home of the nymph Calypso and a lesson for the brave Odysseus, a salt ponds, tuna, great gorgeous cliffs perfect even to jump, blue crystal waters ideal for snorkeling and free diving. Malta is all this and much more.

Malta is speaking Semitic language / loud and exuberant / with a twist of English, Italian, and French influence, and once you hear this, you start feeling Phoenicia, Cartage, Ancient Greece, Byzantine, and Rome in one. The rumbling Etna and how African continent is diving below the Eurasian plate, and you see how a big snake is trying to raise up from the bowels of the earth using the fire within.
