About this trip

Join San Francisco-based yoga teacher and former professional sailor, Peter Walters on a luxury wooden sailing yacht, cruising the Mediterranean Sea, drinking in all of what the South Eastern Greek Islands have to offer.  


Ever dreamed of cruising around the islands of Greece? While doing yoga? And eating amazing food? Exploring and hiking?Living on a cozy, sailing ship with new and old friends? Well, if you answered yes to all these questions, then boy do I have a trip for you!


You can expect twice daily yoga practice with amazing views, island hoping, jumping in the ocean, hikes, Greek culture, healthy Mediterranean food and so much more. You'll be immersed (and amazed) by the oceans' kind embrace and gentle rock. 

 

The southern part of the Dodecanese, from Rhodes to Kos has a tremendous variety of beautiful experiences and scenery. The volcanic isle of Nisyros, the cultural impressions of Kos, the picturesque houses in Symi, and the diverse cultures on the island of Rhodes.


In between our yoga sessions we'll explore the islands, go on hikes, visit historic sites and eat the best Mediterranean food. This is truly an adventure of a lifetime. 


*DISCLAIMER: You will be living aboard a ~100 foot sailboat for a week with 15-20+ other people. Quarters are cozy, and you won't have an enormous amount of personal space. While this boat and the experience will indeed be luxurious, life at sea and living on boats can be challenging for some people. Just keep that in mind and be honest with yourself for how you might do in this type of setting. In requires patience, kindness, compromise, surrender, and a willingness to open up a bit. Are you ready?

Wonderful! Beautiful, heartfelt practice, inspiring people, kick-ass food, in a lovely location. Peter and Lauren are pretty cool too I guess:)
Fantastic weekend getaway! Thank you, Lauren and Peter, for organizing such a wonderful experience all-around! It felt like a vacation! Mayacamas Ranch was excellent - beautiful setting in nature, clean and comfortable rooms, fresh and delicious plant-forward food, lots of quality time yoga, and great people! I liked that the days were not too structured, which gave everyone an opportunity to spend the weekend in the way that appealed to them. You could go hiking around the property, spend time by the (beautiful) pool, explore nearby Calistoga, read/write, and/or socialize with new friends!

This was an awesome trip, hands down. I didn't expect it to be as wonderful as it was, even though I knew it was going to be in Hawaii, even though I knew Nat (who assisted Peter, the teacher, with music & instruction) was awesome, etc. It was still better than what I could imagine! So thank you from the bottom of my heart for this experience. It truly lived up to its name!

This retreat was a healing and transformational experience. Peter tenderly led us through our daily practices, challenging us to find strength, encouraging us to play and allowing us to simply be with what is as it is, while Nat and Brian’s sweet music guided us home. My fellow yogis were friendly, fun and inspiring, creating a real sense of community. The retreat center was a beautiful, sacred sanctuary by the ocean with a caring and accommodating staff. We enjoyed delicious vegetarian food grown on their property, comfortable lodging, an inviting infinity pool and access to gorgeous nearby beaches. My spirit is still soaring and I look forward to returning next year!
