Sailing Wellness Retreat in Greece

June 13-20th, 2020
Sailing Greece Wellness Retreat

About the retreat

Join master yoga teacher and healing artist: Tracy Aleksic for a unique experience in Greece.  Sailing through the Cyclades. We will be spending a week on a stunning, brand new catamaran with 4 double cabins with bathroom.

The trip starts and ends in Syros that is the undiscovered gem of the Cyclades islands. Our sailboat will be a brand new (built in 2019) 42 feet catamaran comfortable for 8 guests + 1 captain and Tracy Aleksić. Our captain will be a very experienced local, who knows all the hidden spots and little bays.

How to get to Syros: by air from Athens (35 mins) or by ferry from Athens (2 hrs).

Route: depends on weather & wind, but here’s a sample route: Syros, Paros, Koufonissi, Schinoussa, Ios, Naxos, Syros

Typical schedule: there is a minimum amount of sailing that must be done every day, in order to get from an island to the another. It is not a cruise, so we are sailing during the day. Wake up, do yoga on land, have breakfast, sail, swim, snorkel, arrive to a port (usually in the afternoon hours) and free time to discover, have dinner etc.

What to do: this tour is ideal to discover the islands from another perspective. You will live what ancient sailors lived while sailing in the area. You will see small churches, lovely villages and contemporary Greek slow life, that hasn’t changed much in the last centuries as well as ancient monuments!

Life on a sailboat: we have chosen a brand new catamaran for maximum comfort. As a catamaran has basically double-width compared to a traditional sailboat it has more comfortable cabins and a larger “living room” area, as well as a larger “sunbathing area”. Be prepared that you are going to spend a week on a lot smaller surface that you are used to in your everyday life.

The captain is in charge of taking final decisions regarding routes, always taken into consideration the maximum safety possible. Safety sometimes overwrites fun.

Food: will be prepared by participants. There is no chef on the boat. We shop, store food in the boat, prepare breakfasts and lunches together. The crew’s food (in case it is one captain) has to be paid by the participants. This is a general rule in all charters around the Med. Dinners are usually in some restaurant in ports. You can eat on your own, in smaller groups or together. It is a time when we are on land, and each one of you has more freedom to decide what to do.

Usually, participants have a so-called “kitty” that is the maritime term for a common wallet, where we put money and do shopping and dinner from it.

This is not a standard yoga retreat. This intimate yoga-adventure will remind you to Live, Laugh, and Love! It’s an experience designed to excite the senses, an opportunity to create balance, enrich your life, connect with yourself and others, and become vibrant. Take a step out of your comfort zone and join this amazing adventure! Spots are limited to 8 guests to keep it small and familiar.
