Yep, this place is real. And we practice yoga on it.
JUST RELEASED: 26-29 September 2024
Unplug and Unwind for 4 days and 3 nights on our rejuvenating Yoga & Sailing weekend departing from Airlie Beach, Whitsundays.
Come and join us as you practice yoga in the beautiful subtropical Whitsunday Islands, from an all-inclusive maxi sailing yacht. Run by experienced yoga instructors and mother-daughter duo, Frani and Ayla Wilde, this 4 day sailing retreat will put you back in touch with nature, and yourselves.
With a combined international teaching experience of 17 years, Frani is also a talented physiotherapist of 30 years and ayurvedic health coach (among many other talents!), and Ayla has been teaching on workshops and retreats internationally over the last 5 years.
In our fast-paced world, it is so important to slow down and reconnect with your body, mind and the natural world.
We are so excited to bring you this restorative and regenerative experience.
Below you will find an example itinerary – please note this is subject to weather and tides. But trust us, Ayla has been sailing, teaching and guiding people around the Whitsundays for the last 4 years so no matter what we do, it will be equally as amazing. The company we have partnered with (Prosail Whitsundays) are also the best in the business for knowing the perfect balance of adventure and relaxing.
