A workout like no other, you’ll be surprised at what you’re capable of on the water after this class. Hoist the main, trim the jib and tack with ease. Rum not included.

Yoga:
Yoga is one of the worlds most popular types of exercise, it has a unique ability to bring a wide variety of benefits to all regardless of age, ability or ailment. Prepare to stretch, strengthen and discover what your body is truly capable of. Walk out of the class toned, energised and stress free.

Yoga for Yachties:
We all know that sailing is like no other sport! Every day on the water is different and the demands on the body can sometimes add up. Join our Olympic Medal winning sailor Nina for a Yoga class like no other. This class will help to strengthen key supporting muscles that often get overlooked in training and release problem areas to find better all body balance and mobility. A great tool to help reduce injuries on the water and keep you pain free. Not your average Yoga class, prepare to sweat, work and feel the difference.
