The Extended Summer Retreat
Sept 9-16, 2023

Extend your summer
Sailing the Greek Islands this September

No Sailing Experience needed!

Release constraints and return to a sense of unbounded joy and freedom.

Join Alesha & Emeli for a 7-night 8-day journey of remembrance.

Step out of your daily routine, and step onto the deck of a sailboat.

Feel the wind in your hair, the sun on your skin, and

take a deep breath to soak it all in.

Immerse yourself in the Elements

We will be a very small group of adventurers...

Together, we will practice, explore,  release, and offer yourself an opportunity to expand into your next phase of personal development.  There will be much space for personal reflection as well as alone time, as needed. Likewise, an opportunity for the community to let the magic unfold.

This journey will take place throughout the Isles of Greece. We will sail these gorgeous islands in a carbon fiber racing Sailboat. We will explore the islands and have our practices in unique locations. When off the mat we can hike, explore snorkel, dive deep into the culture, and take time to simply relax on the beaches and sailboat.  


Best part…No sailing (or yoga) knowledge needed. Experienced guides take care of all the sailing and our beautiful chef cooks our on-board meals with love and intention.  All you have to do is show up, and enjoy!


The Practices

Each day we will

explore a new location.

Practice yoga, pranayama

& meditation in a variety of breathtaking destinations.

Explore Mythology & Archetype

Join in Rituals of self-care coupled with Ceremony & Celebration


Boat Life

Awaken a sense of freedom, exploration, and wonder.

It's a special sort of excitement and serenity that comes with being powered by nature.

Sit back and let the wind

take you away!

The Destination

Greek Isles

Rugged, sun-drenched outcrops of rock, anchored in stunning azure seas and sprinkled with snow-white villages and blue-domed churches. Ancient archaeological sites and countless postcard-worthy beaches, this is Greece. Throw in a blossoming food scene, renowned party destinations, and a good dose of sophistication, and you really do have the best of Greece’s captivating charms.

The Yaght

JPK 39 Fast Cruiser has:


3 double cabins for guests- 2 available for private or shared occupancy.

1 Shared Bathroom amongst all guests and captain.


The 3,98m stern width makes the interior much bigger than any other 39 footer.

The big side hatches make the interior very bright with nice views.

The lifting keel allows you to reach beautiful shallow beaches, cross shallow passages, or just be the closest one to the shore in the bay.

The watermaker makes your trip scheduling only about pleasure and not provisions


All the lines run back into the cockpit making it safe to execute any maneuver.

The staysail on a furler offers easy control in hard weather conditions but can be detached for easier tacking in light winds.

The spinnaker in a sock and the Code 0 on a furler, both systems pioneered for solo racing, make sailing fast, easy and safe even for double handed crew.
