YOGA SAILING IN CROATIA
Yoga Sailing Holidays is a brand of Med Sailing where we combine a yoga retreat, meditation and a sailing holiday around the stunning Croatian coastline for the best yoga retreat in Europe.
We’ve handpicked the best locations in the area for you to explore and to create mini-adventures for your morning yoga class, before setting sail to your next destination. Why just go on a yoga retreat when you can be part of a yoga sailing holiday!
As part of the 7-day yoga sailing holiday, you will enjoy daily yoga, daily guided meditation with your certified instructor and daily swim stops. Yoga is just a part of the sailing holiday, you will enjoy the sailing adventure as you island hop from Split to Dubrovnik, you will call into private bays for your afternoon swim and lunch, before you set sail to your next island.
You don’t need to be a yogi to participate, you may just want to totally relax or try something new when you sail Croatia on your private yacht.
I have booked the Yoga Sailing Holidays for yoga and sail in October 2016. Everything has been already started with ease and joy. The booking and the conformation was done very quickly, the staff helped me with any question that I had. On the boat I have met the amazing crew, who made my trip one of the best holidays of my life. We started the mornings with yoga, breakfast together and had an enjoyable sail to other islands. We went swimming in beautiful and extraordinary places, enjoyed meditation and food, which the crew prepared. Due to different tastes within the crew and the group we tried various different foods. I enjoyed diving from the boat, the sailing and all the bays and harbours we have visited. Everyday all people on the boat were full of energy, in a best mood and made my holiday very special. I really enjoyed this and would recommend to everyone! Thank you very much
I had a fantastic time with Yoga Sailing Holidays in Croatia! We got to practice yoga in some cool locations, exploring with the islands and being led through restorative flow to balance the day by our wonderful instructor, Melissa. We visited really niche spots for swimming and SUP in turquoise waters and having lunch on the water; all the meals were beautifully prepared for by our hostess, Olivia, with a variety of dishes through breakfast and lunch, plus good coffee! Our skipper, Marko, is one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet and shared some great stories from his travels and knowledge of Croatian history through the region. I'm not sure on my favourite island stop, probably Vis or Korčula, but each destination seemed better than the previous and it was a great taster of what Croatia has to offer. I also really enjoyed being ‘shown the ropes’ to help with mooring the yacht and assisting with the sails. This was a unique experience and so many laughs with a group of like-minded travellers, I’m glad I went with Yoga Sailing Holidays.
Just came from teaching yoga along the Croatian Coast. Have to say our crew were incredible from the food on board and recommendations on the islands to taking us to secluded swimming spots in the middle of the Adriatic. Unbelievable, once in a lifetime experience. We were a mixed group of yogis with some who have never done yoga before and of all ages , but as the saying goes yoga is not all about getting into poses. I designed the practices to include time for meditation and breath work and so all levels could participate, warm up safely, and choose options depending on level , and in the end get to that state of calmness and bliss. Wasn’t hard to do in the Mediterranean. We all enjoyed the beautiful vistas at every practice, and some peaceful in the moment walking meditations to end our practice. Lots of laughter, and playfulness throughout the week. This yoga holiday was so much fun that I will be offering another yoga week on the Coast of Greece in September 2020. Thank you Yoga Med Holidays for making this holiday for me and my group a memorable experience.

YOGA + SAILING IN CROATIA - INCLUSIONS
When you book your yoga sailing holiday in Croatia, it's important to be sure that you are getting good value for money and there are no nasty surprises waiting for you. This is why we are upfront with the inclusions and dont leave anything out, simply put: the price is the price.
When you are booking a yoga and sailing holiday, there are two choices: 1) you book the entire boat and take on all the costs, or 2) you book either a private or shared cabin. The price is in direct proportion to how many guests there are in your party, so if there's one guest you are paying your fair share of the running costs.
This is your holiday and you want the most value and also the most relaxation on your trip, after who can blame you, it is your sailing vacation after all. We don't expect you to know all the running costs, which is why we list them for you, so you don't need to worry, will will also provide yoga mats, straps and blocks. You'll just need to take care of your restaurant dinners, any alcohol and off-boat expenses.
Now that we have that covered, you just need to book your place on the trip and join us!
