Daily Yoga and Active Sailing in the Cyclades Paros-Paros
Experience a cruise that combines yoga and navigation. Far away from touristy crowds, we give you the opportunity to take part in a trip full of exploration and adventure and to get more in touch with your body and mind. During the cruise, we will stop at different places, unique for their beauty and peaceful atmosphere, to offer you four sessions of yoga. This cruise is for everyone, from beginners to advanced. Come do Yoga while sailing with us!
What we will offer you
Every participant will be a member of the crew, learn how to sail, and be involved in all activities on board (maneuvering, navigation) and in all aspects of daily life. No sailing skills are required. The daily trips are between 4 and 6 sailing hours, depending on the distance and wind conditions. If possible, there will be a stop around noon to swim and have lunch.
Your skipper has extensive knowledge of the Greek islands and will help you to discover their picturesque small ports as well as the most famous and beautiful beaches in the Cyclades and their crystal clear waters.
Every day a yoga session is planned during the cruise. Depending on the daily sailing plan, the lessons will be held in the morning or in the afternoon. Suzanna will take you to the most beautiful places for relaxing yoga sessions combined with stretching and meditation. This way you can enjoy and appreciate the charm and magic of the Cyclades while going deeper into your yoga practice.
A Typical Day on Board
Wake up around 7 am, 8 am for a Yoga session, 9.30 breakfast, shopping, tidying up, and getting ready for navigation.
Departure is around 9 am and 10 am, it usually takes from 4 to 6 hours to arrive at the next destination, depending on the distance and the wind. If possible, we stop for a swim and lunch on board. The aim, of course, is to make the thrill of sailing a pleasant experience for everybody, every day. The skipper will be at your complete disposal to help you improve your sailing skills.
In the afternoon the sailboat will anchor in a traditional Greek harbor or remote bay where you can either discover the local charms or just relax on board the boat and enjoy the beautiful Aegean sea.
At the end of the day, you can share your experiences with the rest of the crew while tasting a traditional Greek “Ouzo”. In the evening we will have dinner in a typical island tavern where we will introduce you to traditional Greek cuisine, or we can cook a meal on board. Before nightfall, the skipper and crew will discuss the itinerary of the next day’s voyage.
Suzanna started teaching yoga in 2009 in combination with sailing workshops in Greece, but her practice started a long time before that. She started practicing yoga 20 years ago at the Iyengar Institute in Amsterdam and later she shifted her focus more toward deep therapeutic stretching. She is a Yin, Mindfulness, and Hatha teacher.
With these combinations, her focus is on deep stretching combined with breathing to unblock physical imbalances. She enjoys giving lots of individual attention and corrections when needed.
For her, Yoga is to be connected with your inner self, others, and nature, to be open-minded and not trapped in daily habits.
