Imagine truly taking time for yourself. Practice yoga and mindfulness deeply secured and supported so you can rest and recharge far away from daily life. Sail'n'Mind is your retreat to connect with your body and mind, join a community of inspiring people, and get headspace on board a sailing yacht. Let's sail away and discover the hidden bays of Croatia.

Yoga I Mindfulness I Lecture


"Making mindfulness the standard."

Josefine is the content brain of Sail’n’Mind. She did her 200h TTC yoga- and mindfulness training in 2017 in Bali at Samasti Yoga and spent her summer back in 2019 at the Oxford Mindfulness Center to learn more about the latest research and scientific approaches toward mindfulness-based stress reduction. In her daily life, Josefine is a mindfulness advocate, expert for social entrepreneurship and impact strategies and advises +150 founders a year for the city of Vienna, and stands up for equality, integration, and socio-economic participation.


Org I Sailing I Yoga I Visuals


"I love to enlighten the fascination for one's own body in order to discover power and beauty within through movement and exploring the impossible."


The multitalented Nicola is the organizational brain behind Sail'n'Mind. She will share her knowledge of movement and the body in her Yoga classes and will teach you to fly above the water with some Aerial Yoga. Her aesthetic instinct gives the Sail'n'Mind the characteristic look of the homepage, visuals and photos. Nicola's heart beats for the ocean and she's spent quite a few nautical miles on sailing yachts. In her daily life, she's a physiotherapist and Aerial Silk Artist, and Instructor.


Sailing I Media I Cooking


"I want to guide to awareness of experiences and create the possibility to slow down life as a source of conscious enjoyment."


The calming soul on board Raffael is the head skipper of Sail'n'Mind. Besides rocking his regular desk job, Raffael dreams about freedom and going where the wind takes him. Whenever you wonder how to live your dreams, live a balanced life despite stressful times, and how he made the delicious dish of the day, he is the sailor who can help you with that.

The Sail'n'Mind Cruise in Croatia was fantastic! Nicola, Josefine, and Raffael were available for us around the clock, briefed us in advance (not all of us had been on a sailing boat for a week :)), arranged a colorful program (yoga, meditation, mindfulness exercises, excursions etc.), introduced us to the world of sailing, cooked (yummy!) and entertained us. There is no better crew to have so much fun with.

Every day there were new inspirations and revealing conversations with each other. It was the perfect combination of powering up and getting to rest. It was also nice to see how people who didn't know each other for the most part before, harmonized wonderfully on the boat for a whole week and had a lot of fun.

I could talk about so many experiences, but I don't want to take the excitement off anyone ;) Whoever will be there next year - it will definitely be as fantastic as this year. I am looking forward to Sail'n'Mind 2019 :)

Über meinen eigenen Schatten zu springen und bei Sail’n’Mind mitzufahren, war aber die beste Entscheidung, die ich treffen konnte. Die Absprache über Facebook bzgl. An- und Abreise von und nach Wien als Fahrgemeinschaft, aus sich zuvor noch nicht kennenden TeilnehmerInnen, war relativ unkompliziert und hat gut funktioniert. :-) Die Reise bedient meiner Meinung nach vier Aspekte: einen meditativen, einen sportlichen, einen abenteuerlichen sowie einen sozialen. Zuvorderst und vielleicht am prominentesten steht das Meditative. Eine Woche fernab des normalen Alltags, aller Sorgen, Ablenkungen und Verpflichtungen mit einer Einführung bzw. Anleitung zu verschiedenen Formen der Meditation, ist die perfekte Voraussetzung für die Seele, sich zu erholen. Zugleich ist es auch sportlich. Nicola und Josefine sind dabei ein toller Mix aus bedacht und motivierend, um sich selbst zu überwinden und Neues auszuprobieren. Täglich wird Yoga praktiziert, das Meer bietet die Möglichkeit sich abzukühlen und auszutoben, aber auch andere Betätigungen werden teils spontan und abhängig vom Interesse der Gruppe angeboten. Das Abenteuerliche betrifft eher jene, die noch keine großen Segler- und SeefahrerInnen sind. Aber vor der malerischen Kulisse des türkisblauen kroatischen Meers und der schroffen kroatischen Berglandschaft zu kreuzen, ist ausgesprochen romantisch. Außerdem gibt es die Möglichkeit, an Deck, direkt unter dem Firmament zu schlafen. Für Interessierte bietet sich obendrein noch die Chance auf eine Einführung ins theoretische und praktische Segeln oder Knotenbinden. Und auch ein paar der weniger Interessierten wird der Skipper mit seiner liebenswerten Art dafür begeistern ;-). Zuletzt, aber für mich mitunter ausschlaggebend für den Spaß und Erfolg unserer Reise war das Soziale – die anderen Menschen auf dem Boot. Eine gewisse Offenheit ist natürlich von Vorteil, aber am Ende der Woche waren wir alle, die wir uns davor nicht kannten und eine sehr heterogene Gruppe darstellten, ein eingeschworenes Team mit viel Respekt und Wertschätzung füreinander.

◦ Living onboard a sailing yacht is hard to explain, but it feels like camping on water. Be prepared for accordingly small space, especially for luggage. The bathrooms are also just as big as they need to be, as well as the little kitchen with a gas stove and fridge. There are only double rooms available (double and bunk beds). If you are traveling alone, be prepared to share a cabin with someone you just met. We'll be spending more time on deck anyways, where the wide ocean will be our garden.

As we are spending most of our time outdoors, the route and all activities are dependent on the weather conditions. The daily program might need to be changed accordingly. 

◦ Check-in is on Saturday at 7 p.m.; Check out is on Saturday at 7 a.m.

◦ The retreat will run with 6 people signed up. The group is limited to 8 on one boat.
