THE BEST SAILING ADVENTURES HAS TEAMED UP WITH THE BEST IN YOGA TRAVEL TO CREATE A ONE OF A KIND YOGA RETREAT AND SAILING JOURNEY
The Yogascapes + Sailing Collective Yoga Voyage through the British Virgin Islands is a 7 night adventure that will circumnavigate the island of Tortola, visiting a new island each day. We will dinghy ashore to pristine, sandy beaches for daily yoga practice.
Each sailing yacht has a Sailing Collective captain and Yogascapes instructor aboard who will lead this adventure incorporating cultural interaction specially crafted for this yoga retreat. Living aboard a 45 ft catamaran, your crew will take care of your every need throughout the week from daily itinerary planning to crafting tasty meals using fresh local ingredients. Double-occupancy and single cabins available aboard a premier catamaran equipped with modern facilities including private and spacious cabins with private bathrooms and a full galley from which your crew will cook up delectable meals each day.
Don’t worry if you have never sailed before, Sailing Collective captains are certified sailors and professional instructors, so if you’re keen to learn, we’ll teach you everything you need to know. Or, if you are already a sailor, this vacation will be dream come true! So take the helm or just sit back and relax as we sail each day among some of the Caribbean’s most relaxed and alluring islands.
The British Virgin Islands are comprised of over 20 islands surrounding Tortola. As one of the top sailing destinations in the world, the BVIs are idyllic in nature, with hidden alcoves on hardly inhabited islands. Experience the mellow life of the local culture or have a cocktail at one of the classy old world yacht clubs, the BVIs is a perfect getaway vacation fit for any type of explorer.
The British Virgin Islands stand out as jewels set amid the sheltered, turquoise waters of the central Caribbean Sea. Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, and Anegada will all be stops as we cruise the archipelago. The smaller islands, splendid for day visits, add to the varied mix of activities, which can be as laid-back or as active you want. White-sand beaches, luxury waterfront resorts, chill local bars and upscale restaurants, snorkeling and scuba diving on coral reefs teeming with sea life, you can do it all.
Spiritually athletic in nature and practice, Be finds gratitude in movement, stillness, and transition. The Gemini in her is most clearly expressed through being an old soul, and yet maintaining a deep connection to her inner child. The balance of the two being currently explored as the sacred feminine: intuitive, loving, energetic, fierce, playful. She teaches sequencing that is traditional, spiritual and geometric -with boundaries of line and space that do not limit, but rather guide and show oneself – to oneself. Exposing one’s strengths, as well as one’s vulnerabilities. Freeing the spirit, igniting the soul. Be graduated from NYU’s Gallatin School with the concentration of Human Wellness, Addiction, and Culture Studies and completed her original 200 hour training in Todos Santos, Mexico at the Yandara Yoga Institute.
