There is a good reason why most yoga retreats are held in a place surrounded by nature. It’s easy: nature heals. That’s why also many yoga holidays are held by the sea, the healing and calming powers of the ocean are well-known by everyone who has spent one or two days on the beach.
Now, with this in mind, can you imagine a yoga retreat on a Sailing Boat?! A yoga retreat on a boat represents a unique opportunity to get all the abundant benefits of a yoga retreat. It’s the perfect atmosphere to find time for yourself, practice yoga daily, acquire healthy eating habits and meet like-minded people; but you would do all this while being embraced, literally, by the sea!
What can you expect from a yoga retreat on a sailing boat?
A yoga retreat on a boat allows you to experience how life is on a ship, to enjoy sailing basics, to create team connections with the captain, with the yoga teacher, and of course, the rest of the participants. To be able to intake so much from the sea, it’s really something very valuable.
A retreat on a sailing boat, surfing the paradise waters of Ibiza and Formentera, has the invincible power to heal you. After setting sail from the port, you practice yoga every day on beautiful beaches whilst enjoying cruising, swimming, healthy sunbathing and relaxing on the beautiful beaches of Ibiza and Formentera.
Depending on the weather and the wind, every day the captain takes you to the best spots around these islands. You find yourself doing your morning yoga practice on the most beautiful sandy and quiet beaches you’ve ever seen. And to finish your day, the most stunning sunsets of the Balearic Islands let you have truly pleasant nights.
The fact that you are sailing, the fact that you live in the sea right in nature, will make you disconnect in the most amazing way from any land worries. It will connect you with nature, with the sea. And as the main gathering, after having enjoyed a day on the boat, you will have a yoga session to wind down. The practice will bring you a sense of grounding to rebalance after the hours floating on water.
And if the relaxing part of this retreat wasn’t enough, yoga boat retreats are also a fun and beautiful social experience. You will go back home having experienced magical moments and conversations. Sharing the boat and some of its sailing duties with your peers, allows you to create amazing connections and enjoy great moments with all the participants and the crew. You will build teamwork guided by the captain and the teacher. In the sea, you just bond with others much more than in land.
The yoga Boat is a unique experience. A total different perception not only about the outdoor practices but also about yourself, your relationship with others, the sea and the dreamy life on a boat.
