Sailing Yoga Adventure Retreat around Malta, 8 -14 July/5 – 11 August

On our sailing yoga adventure retreat you will be challenged and delighted in a variety of sailing, sightseeing, and yoga activities. While the exact schedule is flexible, subject to Mother Earth’s choice of wind and sea conditions, you are guaranteed a daily yoga practice at Malta’s most special, striking, and scenic locations. You will also get the opportunity to participate in a daily workshop or activity such as, like Stand-Up Paddle Board Yoga (SUP Yoga), photography, meditation, singing bowls, and whatever else floats our way! The final emphasis of the retreat is, obviously, on sailing.

Throughout the course of the week our smiling skipper will teach the sailing fundamentals, building up to the final days when the group steers our own sailboat to its top gears. To keep us from becoming total mer-folk, we’ll also take a walking tour of one of the oldest Goddess Worship temples in the world, Hagar Qim. Of course, we’ll channel our inner Goddess practicing a deep yoga flow thereafter. While it’s true that our sailing and yoga retreat is a more action-packed retreat than, say, laying on the beach in Costa Rica, we are strong proponents of the ancient practice of stillness.

We choose to sail because it brings us closer to the earth, wind, air, and, if we take time to feel it, our own fire. It’s only when we’re focused, relaxed, and at peace that we can truly sense the human interaction with the elements and each other. That’s why we make sure to provide plenty of time for soaking up the sun on the boat, getting your feet sandy on secluded beaches, and interacting with other retreat attendees. After year one we marveled at how much brighter, browner, and brainier our yogis were. We aim to recreate this deep, luxurious relaxation in year two!

Teachers

Ritianne Richardson
Ritianne is the owner and operator of Hot Yoga Malta, Malta’s own boutique Hot Yoga studio. Her training in both Hot Yoga and traditional Ashtanga Yoga in India gives her not only a solid foundation as a teacher, but a varied and in depth understanding of both traditional and modern yoga. Her fusion style now is both energizing and focused. Her cues keep you on your toes while sequencing is creative and unique. Being a local Ritianne will use her local knowledge and contacts to get us the best food, the best secret beach spots, and the best deals with everything from local wines to shopping to parking spots and more.

Emily Stewart
While she always knew that she loved to practice yoga in challenging outdoor situations, Emily never knew how utterly devoted she was to what she’s deemed “dirty yoga” until the Sailing + Yoga Retreat 2016. Emily adores finding innovative spaces to practice in where she can incorporate her wide knowledge of fitness and yoga principles. She specializes in teaching to the situation and delights in finding the most creative and powerful spaces. Roman salt baths, the edges of scenic viewpoints, and perched on piers are all locations in Emily’s retreat repertoire. Emily is founder of BASEDtraveler Bodies, a yoga-meets-journalism website that connects yoga and fitness practitioners around the world. Emily studied yoga for five months at the Sivananda Vedanta Ashram in Maduria, India, and at their rural retreat house in Tamil Nadu.
