22 - 29th June 2024
You will be Swimming with Dolphins every day of our retreat. Dolphins help open our hearts and remind us to surrender to the flow of life.
Through the combination of yoga, swimming with dolphins and other carefully selected practices you will learn more about yourself, gain clarity on what is important to you and how you wish to live your life. You will also be reminded that you are never alone. We are all ONE.
Give your mind and body a break. Live on a luxurious yacht for 7 days, outside of your usual routine and discover wellbeing practices that you can apply at home to improve your quality of life. This is much more than just a "yoga" retreat.
Spend 7 days in a beautiful Dolphin reef in the middle of the Red Sea, where you will experience an awakening and connection to your soul.
Together we will be shifting your
awareness to who you are, raising your vibrations and increasing your ability to experience love and joy within.
Once you come eye to eye with the dolphins, nothing will ever be the same and you will walk away with a feelings of wholeness and inner peace within.
There is an underwater lagoon in the Red Sea where the dolphins come in after their nightly hunt. This place holds high vibrations and many people feel and experience a very special energy here. Here you will be swimming with dolphins in a magical portal and forget about the outside world
Add a beautiful ship to this and you have the perfect venue for a transformational yoga retreat. Here everything feels so clear and easy and you wonder why we complicate everything so much.
When we are in Sataya, we learn to let go of control and go with the flow. Below is how a typical day may look like, but please note we go with the flow of the dolphins. If they are particularly playful and energetic we will take that opportunity and swim with them.

The most beautiful thing about being together on a boat is the community feeling; making friends for life and having meaningful, thought provoking conversations. There is always space to get away from the group to reflect or relax but supporting and challenging each other, is part of the transformational experience.
When we remove ourselves from our everyday life, internet, family and friends we may come face to face with our shadow, emotions, and true blue print for the first time. It can be sometimes overwhelming but the beauty of it all is that when we meet the dolphins, everything feels clear and easy. They help us to make the journey easier, combining our inner work with their playful energy creates a beautiful balance.
The boat has 12 twin cabins with individual air- condition, private bathrooms with hot water shower and toilets.
All Bedding & towels are provided, as well as 24/7, 220v electricity supply (European-style 2-pin electrical
You will share your room with one other person, or if there is availability and for an extra fee you can have a private cabin.
There will be a buffet, three times a day where you can enjoy a rich variety of delicious food. Vegan, vegetarian, and fish/meat options are available. Between meals, you can replenish with snacks and fresh juice made of fruits of the day (the mango in Egypt is heavenly)!
Scuba Diving: Breathing underwater for the first time is a very special feeling. Sataya is the perfect place to try this out with calm water and shallow depths. But there is also a lot to see for those who want to explore further. You might find Nemo!
Freediving: Get acquainted with apnea, hold your breath underwater and learn how to equalize. We will go through the basic technique of how to get down efficiently and talk about some safety points in freediving.
The dolphins are early risers so we start the day at sunrise. We begin with a gentle hatha-vinaysa flow class greeting the sun, with one of our dedicated dolphin guides keeping an eye out for the dolphins. Sometimes the dolphins come in a little after sunrise and are still a little sleepy, in that case we continue with our yoga class. If however I get the signal that they are energetic and ready to play we have a shorter practice and make the most out of their playful mood.
When in the water we come really close to the dolphins, sometimes even at an arms length or closer. We use our snorkels and mask and watch them interact in the wild with each other and often with us too! After an hour or more in the water, we go back to our boat and enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast with a variety of different vegan and non-vegan options, shower and gather our energy for the day ahead.
We like to go with the flow. This means that we do our best to let go of control, routine, tight schedules and learn from the dolphins about the art of surrendering and trusting life. Our middle day activity will be in tune and needs of the group. This may be a sharing circle, a human design workshop, meditation, transformational letter writing or another introspective and self development activity.
Following the flow of the dolphins, we may end up in the water again. With some of us snorkelling by the vibrant, colourful coral reef, scuba diving, or swimming with the dolphins. There is always plenty of time to be in the water and to connect with those magical animals.
We have a nutritious, healthy lunch and some free time to connect with your new friends, have a nap, read a book or journal. After an hour or so has passed we go for our final swim with the dolphins. Each time is different and unique. Each time you feel yourself trusting them and them trusting you a little more. Your heart opening to their love. You begin to give and receive a little easier. You let go and stay in the present moment with more ease.
Before dinner we have have an another activity such as breathwork, a chakra dance or Sufi dance meditation, a sunset free movement dance or a cacao ceremony. Dinner comes with yummy dessert and we finish our day on the top deck under the stars with song, a yin yoga class or meditation, You are guaranteed to sleep well and have beautiful sweet dolphin dreams.
