Yogi Posing and Sailing in the Mediterranean

Rise and shine sailors!

Every morning we were woken up by the sound of the waves against the side of the boat, as Diago would usually set sail first thing in the morning so that we could arrive at another idyllic beach in time for morning yoga.

Just dreamy!

On our morning sail, whilst enjoying our first cup of coffee watching the sunrise over the Ibiza mountains, we were lucky enough to spot a couple of dolphins playing around in the water in front of the boat. Sadly I don’t have any photos of these beautiful creatures. I decided that some moments are there just to enjoy and treasure for yourself… Just as Dipa is teaching me to ‘be in the moment!’

Sorry, I’m a very naughty blogger, but I didn’t want to miss this magical moment by going to grab my camera! Hopefully these beautiful views of the mountains will make up for it.

We sailed our way to the beach of Cala Tarida, for our second day of the retreat where we practiced Iyengar Yoga. This was a more vigorous style of yoga which focuses on strength and alignment and not flexibility. It’s the best kind of yoga for learning the correct positions without damaging your body.

After class we couldn’t help but practice a few of the positions we had learnt…

Starting off with The Wheel Pose

Followed by a shoulder stand… (Not sure if you can tell, but we were hoping to make a heart!)

Dipa managed to trump our efforts with a controlled head stand.

After all that yoga and posing we did eventually make our way to the shops to stock up on some yummy fruit and vegetables!

But whilst waiting to be collect from shore we found time for some more yoga… bloody posers!

After a long session of yoga in the morning, we spent most of the afternoon sunbathing and snoozing on the boat.

Snacking doesn’t come much better than freshly cut up watermelon with your bestie in the sunshine.

Another beautiful evening for meditation. On the second evening we focused on Visualisation, which improves mental clarity and builds self-confidence.

Soaking up the last few minutes of the sun before heading for dinner.

Diago nicknamed us his princesses… I can’t think why?
