Yacht + Yoga holidays are about sailing, taking time to enjoy the sea and having the space (both mental and physical) to practice yoga. Guests will be doing yoga twice a day while sailing around the exclusive La Maddalena Archipelago in Sardinia, a natural park with some of Italy’s best and most secluded beaches. Navigating on a luxurious catamaran, Yacht + Yoga holidays marry the fun of having Caribbean-like waters as your personal 24/7 pool with mindfulness and yoga.
The programme: Yacht + Yoga guests start the day with a 30-minute gentle flow yoga session in the morning to wake up (not too early, don't worry- you are on holiday after all!). After a healthy breakfast on deck, Yacht + Yoga sets sail for the islands, where guests can snorkel, swim, dive, go for a hike on the rugged coast or just soak up the sun. After a day of spotting dolphins, sunbathing and relaxing, guests are taken to a nice little beach for the blissful experience of yoga at sunset. Dinner is served on board or enjoyed on land in local Italian restaurants. Some nights guests will be staying at marinas and some others in secluded bays, just you + the stars.
The food: Guests can expect an onboard menu of healthy Mediterranean food with Sardinian delicacies such as gnocchetti sardi, sebadas and pane carasau. When staying at marinas, guests can venture out to local pizzerias and trattorias for a truly Italian experience.

WHO WE ARE
We are a London-based start-up on a mission to help people relax and have fun. We love Italy (our founder is Italian), sailing and yoga. We liked the idea of combining all three.
We see busy, stressed people on the tube every day and think there is something missing. We want to fix this. We want to provide a break from the hectic pace and annoying bosses to let people connect with who they really are: playful, fearless, beautiful overly-tall children.
We came up with the concept for Yacht + Yoga after quitting our city jobs, joining Escape The City and going travelling. While on a beautiful catamaran in Myanmar, we saw the skipper doing yoga on deck and everything clicked into place. We wanted to go back home and start doing what we love instead of what people thought we should do. Yacht + Yoga was born.
