~Join us in September 1st-7th 2018 (last year) for an amazing trip sailing on the sea in Mallorca and doing yoga on the boat and the beach~
Yoga & Sailing Holiday in Mallorca 2-7th September 2018
Would you like to wake up to the sun and feel the soothing waves of the sea?
Would you like to experience the proximity of the elements yet be completely at peace?
Are you ready for the holiday of the year to be living on a catamaran for 6 days, eat home cooked food and maybe even try sailing?
Every day the crew will pull up the anchor and will leave the shore for sailing.
On a catamaran, you will explore the picturesque Mallorca coast with its beautiful bays and cosy harbours. Autumn is the most beautiful time in the Mediterranean, the sun is shining, the water is warm, the air is clean. There is no stress aboard the spacious catamaran
Greet the day actively with Vinyasa Yoga Flow by Edina on the beach and in the afternoon, relax with a Yin Yoga/Restorative practice. Close the day with a soothing yoga nidra to say hello to your whole being, reflect, set intention, breathe and feel.
When the winds start to blow and the sun is shining, you will get to experience nature directly. When sailing, the mind will be freed and calmed. We will swim and snorkel or just relax.
You will be guided and introduced to meditation from various traditions: yoga, mindfulness and the tantras
Do expect gorgeous sunsets and a magical starry sky! This you can only experience out on the sea.
Culinary treats, as the menu adapts to the climate and lifestyle of modern yogis. After the morning yoga, enjoy a soothing breakfast and the smell of fresh coffee and tea. During the day, snack on some healthy Mediterranean fruit. After the yoga session, together we will prepare Mediterranean and Indian vegetarian and vegan delicacies. The secret recipes and ingredients are selected and purchased by the team. Water and fruit juices will be provided for you.
The journey is suitable for yoga and sailing enthusiasts of all level. Edina and Klaus will lead the yoga classes. Klaus is an experienced sailing instructor and skipper and knows Mallorca by heart.

Klaus is an experienced sailing instructor and skipper and knows Mallorca by heart. Klaus has lead retreats in both Mallorca, Croatia and he brings his grounded approach to his yoga sessions.
This retreat will be the highlight of your year. You will do yoga on the beach, on the yacht and you will sail away from the shore. You will get the real taste of the Mediterranean.
There will be the option to explore the island of Caprera. On a short hike we will climb up to the castle, from where you’ll have a beautiful view over the island and the bay where your yacht will be patiently waiting for your return.
We will set out on the journey from the south coast of Mallorca, with its beautiful bays and wide beaches, secluded islands, and azure blue water.
Our sailing yacht is a catamaran, which we will board in Marina La Lonja.
A Catamaran offers plenty of space and it is extremely cozy to live in. At the bow, between the two hulls there is a huge hammock where you can lie comfortably and enjoy the sun.
There is a salon/dining area with a well equipped kitchen. A terrace to sit on (on a yacht it is called the cockpit) is made for hanging out when sailing.
There are 4 spacious cabins waiting just for you with wide double beds and 4 bathrooms.
Food and Beverage
Just as we will introduce you to the life by the sea, we will also bring in the culinary specialities of the Mediterranean. In the morning there will be light fruity breakfast with tea and coffee.
During the day you’ll be served snacks and fruit, alcohol-free drinks will be available.
For dinner, the crew, with your help, will prepare the dinner to our delicious recipes, making sure love and compassion is added to your dining experience.
Things to do
Besides yoga, there are countless other things to do: Swim and snorkel in the crystal-clear warm water, there will be time to read or entertain, you can help with the sailing (if you so wish), you can meditate or just relax whilst sunbathing.
Visit the great old town of Palma de Mallorca with its beautiful little boutiques many shoe shops and fine restaurants. For the active holidaymakers, the mountains of the Tranmuntan mountains will invite you for a hike. Those interested in art, will get their money’s worth to spend a few hours in the galleries of the island.
