The Kite & Yoga cruise in Egypt is a 1 weeklong adventure. On this cruise you will be kiting on the best spots known to the Red Sea. You will also be reminded of the beauty of life and laughter, and the importance of reconnecting with and rejuvenating your body, mind and soul, and most importantly your immune system. On this trip we will literally get you high, on kiting and yoga. Magic.
While Roberto and his instructors will take care of your kitesurfing skills and progression, Sheena, whose teachers trainings includes every form of yoga and the medical science behind yoga, will guide your bodies and mind through a journey that will both surprise and amaze you.
We will kite every day, from morning till sunset, and every day we will explore a different part of Yoga. And of course, to compliment this personal adventure, the boat and the team will be ready to take care of you with food, drinks and the well-deserved love and comfort.
This is a one-time unique trip. If you have never kited before, a full kitesurfing course is included in the price. If you have never been to Hurghada before, then you are in for a kiting surprise. Flat warm water, open space, heart stopping sunrises and sunsets, new friends, and a luxury boat that will meet your expectations. If you want to just do yoga, or just kite that is okay as well. The boat also offers wake boarding, snorkeling and reading spaces.
This kite & yoga cruise will start from the marina of Hurghada, Egypt, on Saturday, June 12th. Below you will find a detailed day to day plan of the week, all you need to do is to find a flight to Hurghada (The airport of arrival is Hurghada international airport, airport code HRG) on the right dates, and we will take care of all the rest. Everything is pretty much included.

DAY 3 – We will have a dawn yoga session at 7am, right before breakfast, and after breakfast we will head to the beach for kitesurfing. At lunch we will be moving to Tawila, our second kite spot and one of the best spots to kite in the Red Sea. We will arrive in time to do some kiting, and then a yoga session for all our bones and ligaments, ensuring you can put your shorts on without falling over. We will stay a few days in Tawila, since this is really one of the best spots for kiting in Egypt.
DAY 4 – A morning yoga session on the solarium and the rest of the day kiting. Followed by full body stretch yoga sundowner, some video analysis of your kiting day and as always some well deserved drinks. We sleep on the boat in Tawila.

DAY 7 – Last kiting and yoga day, we will head to the beach as early as possible, cause after lunch it is time to head back to the marina. We will have dinner on the boat or in town if we have the energy, as you may want to land after a week on the boat and enjoy a bit of night life.
DAY 8 – It’s time to head back to the airport. According to your flight schedule, we will take you back to the airport, and wish you a safe flight!
This is our main program, but as our powers have not yet extended to shifting weather patterns, the program may change – depending on wind conditions.
In the case of no wind, do not panic, we have plenty of extra activities planned – snorkeling, diving, wakeboarding, calamari fishing, stand up paddle boarding and swimming of course.
Roberto, who is 42, Italian, and is the kite master of this trip and main organizer. He has been coming to my Yoga studio, which is in Cabo Verde, for the last 5 years. His organizational skills are excellent, and he has been planning and executing these trips since 2014, with great success. His strongest asset, besides his kiting knowledge, is his desire to ensure that these trips are exactly what they say they are.
Adventures, filled with laughter, happiness, fun, and endless joy. That pretty much sums up Sheena’s Yoga classes as well. If you add in her 16 years of studying and teacher trainings in every form of yoga, the anatomy of the body, the brain and our nervous system, sound, Chinese medicine and yin yoga, breathing, and the eastern philosophy of how to change your reality by living a yoga life, then you can see why this trip is unique. As for her age, well let’s say it is somewhere above 30, though the age of her spine is still in its 20´s. Sheena is Indian, born and raised in Zambia, but have lived in 7 different countries before landing in Cabo Verde, where she also owned Cabo Verdes first kite & windsurf school with her partner, as well as opened a yoga studio.
