PROGRAM

Every day begins with an open-air yoga class, customized according to each guest's level and experience. After practice, you have the opportunity to enjoy a healthy, delicious breakfast before sailing to our next destination. Swim stops are necessary, and your skipper knows that, so rest assured that he will take you somewhere truly special! In the afternoon, during sunset, you will participate in mediation practice that takes place either on board or on the beach, depending on the schedule.

Karma yoga, the yoga of offering selflessly, will be practised throughout our sailing holiday since we will be living together and sharing. This experience will allow you to cultivate your awareness and to get to know yourself better.

Practice and determination can bring people closer to their true essence. Some of the results are increased concentration, muscular stimulation, and strength, correction of the body posture, flexibility, energizing of the inner organs, physical and emotional healing. The practice is recommended for everyone, regardless of age, gender or level of physical fitness.
