This is our plan for the week, but keep in mind that sometimes great wind conditions enable us to have 2-3 per day, sometimes we have less windy moments . In the case of no wind, do not panic, we have extra activities planned, snorkeling cruises, wingfoil classes, wakeboarding & stand up paddle. We enjoy volleyball matches on the beach, board games, fishing calamaris and playing cajon. Weather conditions dictate our daily schedules so we plan all activities according to the wind forecast.
SUNRISE Early mornings on the boat begin with the sound of unrolling yoga mats, astonishing views of turquoise lagoons and people greeting the rising sun on the rooftop deck of the boat. With a cup of warming tea we practice a sequence of energizing asans and mobility movements. Finding balance on the wavy boat might be tricky but we take it as a chance to warm up our bodies, boost flexibility and endurance for the day full of kiting.
SUNSET When the sun is about to go down we light up the candle, slow down, relax muscles and relieve tensions. Sometimes we stay on the beach to practice yoga flow in a natural environment, surrounded by the sea and beauty of the Egyptian desert. Pranajama and meditation practice is weaved into a vibrant yoga routine.
Stretching and breathing exercises designed for kitesurfers benefits in boosted flexibility and higher injury resilience. Freshly prepared and healthy plant-based menu, selection of aromatic teas and coffees and all day snacks will keep us on the right track.
