Yoga retreat Schiermonnikoog

Become wonderfully zen in the middle of the sea. This is perfectly possible during a yoga retreat to and on the island of Schiermonnikoog. Feel the wind in your hair, the sun on your skin and completely relax thanks to the sound of the sea in the background. The nature around you is a source of genuine relaxation. It brings you into contact with the elements on and around this Wadden Island, which is part of the Wadden Sea UNESCO World Heritage Site. Join us on this unique yoga trip and step on board the sailboat Nova Cura.

The 6-day programme

The journey starts in the afternoon in the port of Lauwersoog. There you will board the clipper and begin the journey to Schiermonnikoog. You’ll get to know the ship well during this sailing trip, with dazzlingly beautiful views of the Wadden Sea area. But the retreat really begins once we arrive on the island. Yoga instructor Josine teaches you everything about the different natural elements: earth, water, fire, air and space. The exact structure of the programme remains a surprise until a few days in advance because it depends on the weather and the strength and direction of the wind. What can you expect? Yoga classes in lovely natural surroundings, meditation sessions, personal reflection rounds, real time for yourself, and a daily activity centred around one of the natural elements. The activities always take place outside: on the beach, on the seabed, in the forest or on the ship. 

Rest and relaxation on the Nova Cura

The whole group stays on a classic clipper ship: the Nova Cura. This 25-metre-long sailing ship is equipped with everything you need. Amenities include a cosy salon, a kitchen, hot showers and 6 comfortable cabins for sleeping. There are plenty of places to get together or to spend some time on your own. The view from the deck is the icing on the cake.
