The Yoga Retreat on the Water
Imagine you are lying in the front of the net of a catamaran. Your eyes are closed. You taste the salt on your lips that the wind from the sea has spread all over your body. Slowly you feel yourself getting warm from the inside. Time for a cool down. You open your eyes and see nothing but the bright blue sky and the turquoise sea. With a head dive, you’re off into the cool water. You climb back onto your catamaran, dry off briefly and get onto your yoga mat while still in your bathing outfit. Time to find your inner center. Time for yoga.
The Boatico Yoga Week
Yoga and sailing have a lot in common. Both are about mindfulness. Of yourself, of nature and of the beauty that reveals itself when you respect both. Yoga retreats are now ten a penny. In the middle of the sea, however, the situation looks different. BOATICO combines the strength of yoga with the power of water. On a Superb Catamaran (42FT Lagoon) you will experience a week of yoga, relaxation and fun. Up to eight guests can travel in four double cabins with private toilets and showers. The motto is: No Worries. Not only will you cleanse your soul on this trip, we take away all stress as soon as you enter the boat. We take care of everything: yoga mats, towels, food and drinks. All you need to bring is your bikini, swimsuit or swim trunks and enough sunscreen. Besides, a catamaran is extremely safe. So you don’t have to worry about that either.
Included services are:
- Yoga mat and brick for the duration of your stay
- 2 towels per person
- 6x Breakfast
- 5x Easy Lunch
- Coffee for the whole day
- Drinking water
- 1x Skippers Dinner
- 1-2 Yoga Classes per day
What to expect on the BOATICO Yoga Retreat
We always depart on Saturday afternoon, either from Split in Croatia or Skiathos in Greece. On board will be a skipper and Jenny. Jenny is our yoga teacher and spends the whole week with you. She has taught yoga since 2013 and is a passionate sailor herself – even if she doesn’t have a sailing license.
On the first day there will only be a comfortable yoga session to get to know each other and also that Jenny can get an idea of the level of the individual participants. But one thing is for sure: Everybody can join in. Whether you are a yoga beginner or a full professional, Jenny will adapt the yoga sessions to your individual needs. On board, mainly meditative breathing exercises will take place. Jenny prefers to practice yoga on land: “I am convinced that you are better connected with yourself and the earth on land”. If you want to learn more about Jenny and her yoga practice, it’s best to read our blog post “All about Jenny – BOATICO’s in-house yoga teacher” while you’re at it. Of course, we are not on the high seas the entire time. In addition to yoga, you can also expect some culture. In various cities you will have the opportunity to go sightseeing, stroll through the streets and eat local delicacies. We try to give you a good impression of the country, but the exact route may vary a bit. The skipper will decide spontaneously what the best wind conditions are.

Catering on Board
As already mentioned, we want to provide you with the perfect yoga week on board. To bring mind and body in harmony, of course, also the physical well-being must be taken care of. Therefore we will provide you with a delicious and healthy breakfast every day. In addition, you will be served coffee and water throughout the day. In the afternoon we will prepare a well-balanced lunch for you, which will let you start your yoga practice fit and full of energy. Anything you want to eat beyond that, you can buy regularly when we dock in the harbor. However, no one will go hungry, that much should be said. As a special highlight we have come up with a surprise for you. This is our Skippers Dinner. But we don’t want to reveal more at this point, the rest ist left to your imagination.
