Winter sailing and yoga courses in the Canaries

Experience life aboard a 46 foot cruising yacht in the sunny Canaries Islands. Explore Tenerife and the nearby islands, practice yoga and meditation every day on the boat or on sunny sandy beaches, eat delicious organic vegetarian food, and enjoy guaranteed sunshine.

Winter is the ideal time to sail in the Canaries. The Tradewinds reliably provide excellent sailing conditions, and the weather is usually sunny but doesn’t feel to hot thanks to the constant breeze.

On these courses, you will be living aboard a 46-foot sailing yacht, with a maximum of six other students, as well as a skipper / yoga teacher and a chef. We will be exploring Tenerife and the nearby islands, visiting a different harbour or anchorage every night. There will be two Sati yoga classes each day with a very experienced teacher, as well as delicious organic vegetarian meals and plenty of time for sailing and exploring.
Guaranteed sunshine, wonderful sailing and beautiful scenery will make this holiday one you’ll never forget. The crew is also happy to teach you the basics of sailing.
These courses are bilingual French / English.

On this course you will learn the fundamental elements of a balanced yoga practice, including sun salutations, asanas (postures), pranayama (yogic breathing) and meditation techniques.
One of the aim of the course is to help you build a practice that can do outside of attending formal classes.

The course is suitable for anyone who enjoys doing yoga. Beginners are welcome, as are those who are experienced yogis but who would like some guidance towards renewing their present practice.

Each course will be individualized according to the experience and interests of the students. The group is small, so the course is designed to be very interactive, with feedback from students encouraged.

There are daily flights to  Tenerife from many European cities, with a number of major airlines, including Ryanair and Easyjet flying daily to Tenerife.
The boat is moored less than 20 minutes from Tenerife International airport, and transfer from the airport to the boat is included in the price.

The Canaries islands, being part of Spain, are in the European Union,  and with the EU’s new “Digital COVID Certificate”, travellers can avoid quarantine requirements by showing proof of full vaccination.

Your guides on this adventure

I am an old salty dog and this cruise is a dream come true as it combines my two life passions: sailing and yoga.
I have been sailing since I was thirteen years old, have owned many boats and sailed across the Atlantic a few times. I know the Caribbean quite well, having worked there on several occasions.
I have has studied and practised yoga since 1994. I originally trained as an Iyengar teacher (introductory certificate obtained in 1998), but my practice and teaching have since been influenced by a number of other yoga styles. My quest for a more balanced practice also led me to study the teachings and practices of Buddhism, which I found to complement and enrich my hatha yoga practice. I practice meditation daily and attend retreats in various Buddhist traditions.

I am the co-founder  of the Sati yoga approach and have been running yoga and meditation retreats since  2001. I am certified by the Independent Yoga Network as a senior (1000 hours) teacher and, having taught more than 5000 hours, as a “yoga elder”.
