This is more than a getaway. This is your opportunity for profound personal transformation. Spend 7 days on a beautiful yacht anchored in a magical coral reef portal in Egypt. Here you will be empowered to let go of all that had been holding you back so that you can fill your soul with freedom, joy, and love.
Our retreat program together with the dolphin’s energy creates a transformational container, where old stories, patterns and habits come to light and where we feel empowered to let them go. Immerse yourself in sunrise yoga sessions that liberate your body and mind and explore the depths of your soul through meditation under the stars, unlocking a sense of freedom that transcends all boundaries.
Through deep emotional healing you will be able to go beyond your minds limitations, have the courage to follow your biggest dreams and finally do that thing that scares you the most. Here you will experience an abundant flow of love for yourself and the experience we call life by being in the the present moment. By the end of the week you will remember what your soul came here to do and you will be able to embrace your authentic self so that you can live a life of true freedom.
Yes, they really are wild and they choose to interact and connect with us out of their own free will. We will have daily morning, midday and afternoon dolphin time. We swim side by side with them and through our interaction with them, our heart opens and we begin to feel more of who we truly are.
Be ready to experience a deeper sense of flow, play and love in your life, as they remind you of your free spirit. When we swim side by side with the dolphins, we begin to understand their way of living. They teach us to surrender, to let go of control and to go with the flow. When we are out in the open Red Sea, we experience a glimpse of their freedom, what it's like to be a free dolphin and can begin to imagine what our life could be like if only we allowed ourselves the same freedom back on land. We watch how they take care of one another, observing their tight family pods and how they love to play, inspiring us to take life less seriously and to make each moment count.
Through a unique combination of yoga, meditation, breathwork, dance, swimming with dolphins and soul awareness workshops, you will learn more about yourself, gain clarity on what is important to you and how you wish to live your life.
Nestled within the Red Sea is an underwater lagoon called Sataya, where beautiful Spinner Dolphins like to visit. Envision heaven on Earth and you will see this place. Here you can reconnect with nature, liberate yourself from your daily routine, escape the pressures of everyday life, and gain profound clarity about who you are and what sets your soul on fire.
This place holds high vibrations, time feels different and what was so important back on land, suddenly feels like a distant past. Here the illusions you and society has created are lifted, and you gain a new perspective on who you are and what you want in life. Immerse yourself in this enchanting portal and swim with wild dolphins, letting the outside world fade away.
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.

"When planning and hosting my first trip, I had no plans of repeating the retreat. It was a dream come true and I couldn’t have asked for a more magical experience. Yet, after my first dolphin encounter I knew I had to come back and returned 4 months later with another group of ten people. I feel it is my purpose and destiny to combine my love for yoga with my love for dolphins, and to bring as many souls who are ready to experience the love that the dolphins give and are wanting to evolve beyond their conditioning to the most magical place on Earth. I believe everyone should be given the chance to live life with an open heart, and the dolphins will help you do that. This will be my 4th Retreat in the Red Sea with the Dolphins"

"Thanks to Maja's invitation, I spent a week in Sataya, feeling the unique power of this place in every breath, and I want to bring to people to Sataya who need healing in some wounded parts of themselves. I wanted to make a retreat that supports everyone who needs to find the way to themselves, to inner healing, to rediscover the joy of life and their own unique potential with the support of me and the extraordinary being that is Maja, and above all with the support of Sataya herself and dolphins. Sataya sent me Maja, who felt, as I did, that together we could conduct a unique retreat that would provide deep support for anyone who needs inner healing, deep self-immersion and true transformation in their lives. I am glad that I can invite you to this unique, Holy place and that Maja and I will be able to support you on this extraordinary journey."
During our sharing circles on the boat, it has come to light that whilst in the water with the dolphins, participants experience moments of pure clarity, an abundance of love, a deep rooted feeling of belonging and a dissolution of the ego. They find answers to questions they had spent months or even years contemplating and some even experience the feeling of their hearts physically expanding and energy flowing. I, amongst the others, have experienced this overwhelming, divine love that the dolphins choose to share with us. There are no words to describe it, only that it feels as though nothing really matters, only the here and the now with them. And isn’t this what so many of us are searching for? The ability to be fully present and in complete acceptance with all that has happened, is happening and will happen. The dolphins show us that the most important moment in life is now, as they help us taste the essence of the present moment with their wild, free spirit.
There is a fundamental difference in the experience that you will have when choosing to interact with wild dolphins and those that are being held in captivity. We cannot “swim” with wild dolphins, unless the dolphins choose to swim with us. It is they who decide on the closeness of our interaction; which makes our connection with them authentic. We cannot help but be in total awe of their trust as they come to us, at an arm's length with their young. We are entering their world and they are welcoming us into their home.
Wild dolphins choose to connect and interact with us, perhaps out of curiosity, love or because they intuitively know that they can help us heal our physical, emotional and spiritual wounds. During one of the retreats, a girl who has recently undergone a serious stomach surgery was swimming around a pod of dolphins. Suddenly one dolphin came close and touched her belly with its mouth and then swam away. Of course we could say this was a pure coincidence, but there is research that points to the effects that a dolphin’s ultrasound can have life-altering effects on people with terminal illnesses, mental disabilities and has been shown to strengthen the immune system. Dolphins are highly intelligent beings, who have the ability to help us become better versions of ourselves. Yet, they also deserve to be wild and free, and to have the choice of how and if they interact with us. Choosing to seek a connection with a dolphin, should always be done so in the wild and not in captivity.
If you can see yourself on the boat with us.

If this speaks to your soul.
Get in touch. I'd love to help you make this happen for yourself.
