Lucia Liencres

From the 28th of August to the 1st of September, 2017

The word yoga means  union. The purpose of yoga is the the union of body, soul and mind in order to find the happiness of living in the moment in in a conscious way.
Lucia Liencres together with Organic Sailing team created this wonderful retreat to combine the practice of yoga and healthy food with fun, disconnection and an unforgettable vacation. For that purpose we will offer you a yoga retreat and detox food aboard two exclusive catamarans that will sail along the coast of Formentera for 5 days, anchoring each night in a unique and different place. The program we designed includes several Daily yoga classes, healthy food workshops, excursions to idyllic enclaves inaccessible from land and much time to enjoy the crystal clear waters that this paradise island has to offer.
It will be 5 days of daily practice, delicious detoxifying food, starry skies, unforgettable sunsets from the sea, inspiring readings and talks, snorkeling, paddle surf, virgin beaches and Formentera markets. A retreat full of magical moments that you will never forget.

GREENBOAT: 

The “Greenboat”, a fantastic 54-foot sailboat with 5 double cabins designed taking into account its sustainability, the use of renewable energy and waste management. The catamaran is a new Nautitech 54.2 with all the comfort that an apartment could offer you.
On board you will enjoy a different vacation in an unequaled environment, sailing the best coves of the Pitusas, with ecological and detox food included and an endless amount of water toys (several SUP tables, snorkel equipment, wake board, knee board …). The catamaran comes with Organic Sailing team, Guillem the skipper and Amparo the sailor / cook. All the food used to prepare the meals during the retreat are 100% ecological, seasonal and mostly local.

MIDORI: 

Midori (sunreef 68) is a catamaran of a 21m length with 4 double cabins (+3 crew cabins) that’s unique in the world. Its interior is designed as a loft, something that’s never been seen before in the world of navigation: 300 square meters available for your use, an apartment on the sea. 360 degree views: Unlike any other boat, all of its walls are giant windows, which can also be gathered up to allow fresh air to pass and feel more intensely the experience of life at sea. The front area of the catamaran has a 50m2 lounge where you can sunbathe or take a bath in the Jacuzzi while you watch the stars, and 6 meters above the waterline Midori houses the best fly bridge of the islands: a huge 65m2 covered terrace where you can practice yoga or relax after a day at sea.
Midori is an exclusive catamaran, unique in the world, designed to give you the same comforts as a luxury apartment, but with the great difference of its perfect location: traveling by the best coves of the Mediterranean.

The retreat will take place on two different boats, Greenboat and Midori, two spectacular catamarans with which we will sail along the coast of Formentera. Each one will accommodate a maximum of 8 people so both the training and the stay on board will be very comfortable and exclusive. The program is the same for both catamarans except the activities highlighted in bold, which vary in schedule depending on the boat.
The on board cuisine at the Greenboat will be detoxifying, gluten-free, dairy- free, meat- free, and free of sugars or refined products. The cuisine on board the Midori will also be detoxifying, free of gluten, dairy, meats, sugars or refined products but in this case it will also be 100% raw and vegan. For those who want to venture into the fantastic world of Raw cuisine by the hand of one of the best chefs in this country.
