Yoga, Sail & Certify Training
Spring, 2025

Answer the call of the sea...​

If you have been yearning to learn to sail, this is THE training for you!

The best part?  Alesha will help decompress after each day with mindful yoga sessions to help keep our bodies and minds in balance and increase our sustainable performance for mastering the seas.

Immerse yourself in the Elements

We will be a very small group of yogi sailors- max 5 of us, including me!

Designed for novice sailors, this course will teach you the basics of sailing. The goal is to prepare you to charter your own boat. At the end of the course you will take the official exams from NASPOR yacht club, certified by the Greek sailing federation, and if successful you will receive the basic sailing diploma.


With this official certificate from an EU state you will be able to charter a boat anywhere in the world!

Embarking on the yoga-sailing certification with Alesha and Dimitris was not just an education; it was a profound and beautiful experience.

Alesha, with her magical touch, brought a spiritual dimension to our packed agenda, harmonizing our minds and bodies through yoga, meditation, and breathwork. This spiritual grounding became the yin to the yang of sailing—a discipline where Dimitris' deep technical knowledge, practical coaching and patience shone through. His ability to translate the complexities of sailing theory into memorable applications empowered us, transforming our nerves into confidence.

Before this training, I was a nervous sailor, familiar with boats yet lacking in confidence. Now, with a license in hand and a newfound belief in my abilities, sailing has woven itself permanently into the fabric of my life. 

This training is so much more than a certification. It's an invitation to lean deeper into your spiritual and growth journey, under the guidance of two extraordinary souls. Thank you both, from the bottom of my heart, for this very special experience in my life. I’m so happy for the epic future sailing adventures that await us all!  READ THE FULL TESTIMONIAL HERE

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.
