Sailing & Yoga Retreat 2022: Greek Cyclades Islands

Join me for a bucket-list adventure through the Cycladic Isles of Greece. Sail through the Aegean Sea, visiting remote islands where tourists are few, beaches are tranquil, spectacular views are abundant, & food is straight from the source. This perfectly balanced all-inclusive journey will allow you to disconnect from the world, be one with the sea & immerse into the beautiful Greek culture.

Why is this adventure like no other?

In this 7 night / 8 day adventure, we will sail throughout the Cycladic Isles of Greece, visiting these remote islands as a flotilla, a group of small ships sailing together. Each day we will explore a new location & practice yoga in breathtaking destinations. We will hike, snorkel, paddle board, dive deep into the culture, & of course take time to simply relax on the beaches and sailboats.

Best part… no sailing knowledge required. Experienced and specialized staff take care of all the sailing logistics! Simply sit back and enjoy your time on the water!

Destination: Cycladic Isles

Rugged, sun-drenched outcrops of rock, anchored in azure seas and liberally peppered with snow-white villages and blue-domed churches with stellar archaeological sites and dozens of postcard-worthy beaches, this is Greece. Throw in a blossoming food scene, some renowned party destinations and a good dose of sophistication, and you really do have the best of Greece’s ample charms. Among the 223 tiny islands, the most popular are Mykonos & Santorini. This journey will take you far from the heralds of tourism. Kythnos, Sifnos, Serifos & Kea, the gems of the western Cyclades will take your breath away.
