Come and grab this precious opportunity to enjoy sailing the Mediterranean, to have the experience of living on a boat, practice yoga in beautiful places, and participate in many other magical moments that simply happen on these weeks. During this retreat, you will be sailing, discovering, and practicing yoga every day in beautiful beaches whilst enjoying the experience of cruising, swimming, sunbathing, creating a team on board and relaxing in the beautiful islands of Ibiza and Formentera.
During this retreat, you will stay on the Luziana boat. Luziana is a great and very comfortable 47-foot long sailing boat. It will accommodate up to 10 people in five different cabins, including the captain and the yoga teacher who are crews on board. On board, you will find all facilities, kitchen, bathrooms, and an inside spacious saloon area. This charming sailing boat also offers a great outdoor dining space with a sitting area. This promises many beautiful breakfast, brunch, and dinners al fresco absorbing the scents of the ocean and the surrounding landscapes.
The boat also offers a great front deck to relax where you will have some of your meditation or sungazing sessions. There is plenty of space on the decks outside to relax, read, or sunbath whilst sailing. Accommodation is on a shared basis, in cabins offering the basic comfort you need for a good night of rest. You will also be able to book a private room at an additional price.
There are 3 types of accommodation for these weeks:
Everyday, depending on the weather and wind, the captain will take you to the best beaches and sports of these islands. You will go to the most beautiful sandy and quiet beaches for the morning yoga practices, and then you will sail along enjoying the boat and the privilege of riding the Mediterranean Sea to great spots to enjoy meditation sessions or a dynamic yoga practice to finish with the stunning sunsets of the islands. At night, you will moor in a cool beach where you will spend the night at. You will also be able to enjoy a meal in the restaurants by the beach.
Please note this is an amazing retreat with a small component of adventure and community. You will relax, practice yoga in incredible places, eat great food and discover the islands but also everyone will be part of a team and shall help cooking, setting up common table altogether, etc. The most luxurious experience for nature and sea lovers.
The yoga practices will take place in different chosen beaches each morning. Practices on the beach are particular due to the terrain, as they happen on the sand. Please do not expect a practice like you will have on your own studio back at home. The practice will be tailored to bring a sense of grounding to re-balance after the hours floating on water. You will work on introspective postures, centering the energy as well as dynamic sequences working on core, balance, and focus.
The classes will also be tailored to suit the sand element and ensure you enjoy the practice on that element. You will also combine the yoga practices with meditation or other sessions in the afternoon both in the boat deck and inland. You will be ensured that you will not miss any of the stunning sunsets that the Balearic Islands offer.
During this week of sailing, you will get the chance to experience life on a sailing boat. The life on a sailing boat is not about luxury, although is an absolute privilege. You will discover the life from the sea and have the possibility to access many beaches, places, and restaurants that are not reachable by land. The times when you go sailing are for yourself, relaxing moments, or the opportunity to chat and socialize with the group. The daily stops on land will give you the opportunity to go exploring the island, discovering local food, cities, or villages.
On the other hand, you will also learn that life in a boat is different from life inland. It is a small space and you will be an essential part of the crew. So, your collaboration and help will be needed with the captain, the yoga teacher, and the rest of the team in charge of all duties on the boat. Expect to be asked by the captain to help with some sails, ropes, and in some maneuvers when anchoring or at the port. Please help with preparing the meals, teamwork when setting up the table, and a rota for cleaning the dishes.
Please be mindful of the group and keep the boat tidy. Doing everything together is fun. Enjoy the bonding and the connection you create with the rest of the group.
On board, you will meet Carlos, the captain, and the yoga retreat teacher. Carlos has over 20 years of sailing experience not only in the Balearic Islands but in plenty of other spots in the world as well. He will safely sale you to all of the amazing places and share his time with the guests. Each boat will be led by one of the Yoga Weeks Barcelona teachers.
All yoga teachers who collaborate with Yoga Weeks Barcelona are all great. They are all international, well-traveled, and knowledgeable yoga teachers with whom you can connect and enjoy the yoga practices, philosophy chats, and plenty of great moments with. In addition to the onboard team, you will also have Yoga Weeks Barcelona inland personal contact available to your disposal.
