With 28 years old, she quits her job and lives half a year in a yoga centre (ashram) in Germany, her first full immersion with yoga. Afterwards she spends one year between India, Bali, and Malaysia, integrating her practice with Iyengar yoga, and also studying Ayurvedic massage. Since 2016 she is studying to become a practitioner of the Grinberg Method, a bodywork therapy.

"Absolutely great experience"
For me the boat was like a floating spa & resort. The locations are superb, the food was really delicious, the yoga classes were great, the chance to steer the boat a bit and to get some basic knowledge about sailing was a huge plus.
Alessandra and Francesco are great hosts that go beyond the expectations to create a good team atmosphere, and they are very successful in doing so. They are both very generous in sharing their knowledge and expertise and are genuinely great people to be around.
I’d totally repeat this very same retreat and can only recommend it to everyone. Bring the best of you on board and enjoy the ride. Bons ventos!

"An amazing sail in spectacular surroundings! "
I just had a fantastic week doing yoga and sailing around La Maddalena's archipelago and to Corsica and back. Although there were few cloudy and windy days, the week was a fantastic experience. Our skipper Leo was a very skilled and professional teacher in sailing and also took us places and isolas which are natural and unhabited. He is also a good drawer ;) Alessandra arranged very nice yoga practises during your sail: what a way to start the morning! Veggies we had are grown in permaculture method, and we had also a visit to the farm after our sail was over. The farmer explained how permacultural farming is done. Overall I loved the week and would go again!

"Below Expectation, Great Sailing and Destination"
We loved the boat, the sailing and Leo our skipper was outstandingly kind, a careful and professional sailor and he was extremely considerate of his guests. Leo made sure everyone who was keen tried their hand at sailing and he spent time showing his clients how to sail if they were keen to learn.
We loved the beautiful islands and beaches we visited, we loved our group we met on the tour and really enjoyed the relaxing environment to swim and be in nature. We had a lot of laughs.

"Amazing experience if yoga and sailing"
Experience was amazing! It’s great value for money! Every morning we had great yoga class - every time on new beach. We were sailing to most beautiful places between Corsica and Sardegna. Breathtaking views and transparent water! Alessandra was cooking amazing healthy dishes from organic products. We all became close friends till the end of the week, however arrived from 3 different continents! I would totally recommend it!

"Entspannung und Achtsamkeit :-)"
Alessandra hat mir (Yoga-Neuling) einen sehr schönen, wohltuenden Einblick in die tägliche Yoga-Praxis gewährt. Die täglichen Übungen am Morgen, die Buchten und Inseln, auch das vegetarische Essen, die Gruppe, das Boot ..., waren so schön, dass ich nächstes Jahr wiederholen werde. 🙏

"Détente, super compagnie, divertissement ! Juste idéal !"
J'ai tout adoré ! Le yoga du matin sur la plage, les super navigations entre les îles sur le meilleur des bateau (le Jep tout confort !), les escales glaces et baignades dans de magnifiques criques, les petites promenades dans les îles, la relaxation du soir, les repas ! Et surtout la super équipe (mille merci à Ale ou Ghego !!!) et les participants pleins de bonne humeur et tellement avides de partages !

"eine einzigartige Reise mit Yoga an wunderschönen Orten"
Als ich diese spezielle Reise gebucht habe war ich aufgeregt weil ich nicht wusste was mich erwartet. Zum Schluss war ich traurig das die Zeit so schnell umging.
Ghego ist mit uns sicher und souverän um Sardinien und Korsika gesegelt und hat uns an wunderschöne Orte gezeigt, wo wir dann zusammen mit Alessandra Yoga geübt haben. Sie ist wirklich eine tolle Yogalehrerin und ist auf jeden, egal ob Anfänger und Fortgeschritten, individuell eingegangen.
Neben dem Yoga war vor allem das Segeln eine tolle Erfahrung, alle haben mit angepackt und der Wind (mal stärker, mal schwächer) hat uns zu einzigartigen Buchten und Strände Stränden gebracht.
Wir sind im azurblauen Meer geschnorchelt und das Essen war jeden Tag sehr lecker und gesund.
Trotz 6 Tage leben auf dem Segelschiff wo man sich nicht großartig aus dem Weg gehen kann, hat die Gruppe sehr gut harmoniert.
Alles in allem, eine wirklich empfehlenswerte und entspannende Reise für Körper und Geist.
