Wide Ocean Retreat


With this unique yoga & sail program onboard a newly renovated four-masted sailing boat, we will make sure to show you the most beautiful, traditional, and least touristy parts of the Madeira Islands.

The trip will start and finish in Funchal, Madeira Island where we will be staying 3 days on land together. The ship leaves the beautiful island of Funchal for the stunning anchorage and golden sands of Porto Santo. Upon its return the ship sails through the natural sanctuary of Ilhas Desertas. Porto Santo is known for its warm waters, dive sites and the long, sandy Porto Santo Beach.

After 5 days of sailing, it's time to discover the island by foot! We'll be taking scenic hikes, visiting historic villages, enjoying local cuisine, and more! Together, we'll be exploring the island's rich culture, relaxing on pristine beaches, and continuing our daily yoga practice.

Yoga & Meditation Experience


We will be having one longer 1-2 hour yoga class per day either on the deck of the sailing boat or in specific spots on the islands. This is mostly Hatha yoga, in which amongst others, we'll be learning a core sequence that we can take back into our day-to-day after the retreat.

On some days, we might have a yin or relaxation class in the evenings to stretch our bodies depending on how we feel from our activities.

Breath & Meditation:

We will be having a 2-hour pranayama workshop, in which we'll learn different techniques on how to use our breath to support us in our daily lives. We will also be engaging in daily meditation before or after our yoga practice.

Madeira Island is a true gem in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Whether you’re a nature lover, an adventure seeker, or just looking to relax, the warm hospitality and stunning scenery will leave you feeling rejuvenated.

The best place to Retreat

Our most unique venue for a retreat - and probably the most isolated of all. A spot so far away from our daily lives that we can fully rest, go deeper into reflection, and work on our bodies and minds with daily yoga and meditation on board of the deck.

Once in a Lifetime Sailing Experience

Could there be a better way to get to know island treasures than by its seaways?

No sailing experience is needed, but those who want to support the crew are highly encouraged to participate in the sailing duties.

Ocean Immersion

Be connected to the divine forces of nature - the vast Atlantic Ocean. There is nothing more pure and refreshing than sailing through its clear blue waves. When anchoring, we have the chance to discover its waters even further through kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and other water-based activities.
