Sailing Boat & Yoga’ Holiday

Sailing and yoga are both activities that promote physical and mental well-being, relaxation, and the discovery of new horizons. The practice of yoga improves the health of the body and mind through meditation, while sailing, with its reassuring strength and the beauty of the sea, further fosters a climate of serenity and relaxation. Combining these two activities represents a perfect combination for a truly regenerating holiday.

Imagine feeling good as you enjoy the bright sun on your skin and the cool sea breeze as the boat sails on. Your day begins with a regenerating yoga session by the sea, followed by a dive into crystal-clear waters, surrounded by a breathtaking view. You will enjoy a balanced, rich, and tasty menu from breakfast to aperitif. You will discover enchanting places, while sharing emotions and unforgettable moments with new friends, all united by the passion for yoga.

We will visit the wild island of Capraia and the beautiful Northern Corsica or the Island of Elba, where you can enjoy moments of relaxation, discovery, and adventure. You will have the opportunity to take walks along coastal trails with breathtaking views, explore unforgettable bays and beaches, but also relax on the deck of the boat and enjoy the surrounding scenery.

On board, the skipper and the yoga teacher will give you a real well-being experience that will not only allow you to take a break from the daily frenzy but will also make you discover the beauty of the world through a completely new perspective.
