Announcing the 2nd Annual SAIL STRETCH CREATE – a sailing, yoga and painting adventure.

On a day when the wind is perfect, the sail just needs to open, and the world is full of beauty.
Today is such a day –


Paint and sail on the Salish Sea

Sailing captain Valma Brenton of Herizen Life Adventures and I invite you to a wonderful week of sailing, yoga and painting in the Gulf Islands, BC. Departing from Nanaimo on August 25th in a fully equipped monohull sailboat, we will make our way south through the shimmering waters and abundant coves of the Salish Sea. If you yearn to sharpen your sailing skills in a female friendly way and drop deeply into your unique creative expression, this trip is for you.

Mornings begin with on deck yoga, mindful movement and meditation. Then each day you will set sail for a fresh anchorage and paint with the sounds, textures, patterns and the inspiration of sea, sky, trees, moonlight….

In the evening by lamplight in the cozy cabin you will extend and bring your images to life.

This is what two of last year’s SAIL STRETCH CREATE participants had to say:

“This week really opened up big doors for me in understanding the much larger role art, and specifically painting, can play in my life – as a way to connect more deeply with nature, myself and others”.
“I really enjoyed the camaraderie and connection that came with sharing the art experience in a group setting.” 

Say YES and give yourself the gift of nature as you build your confidence on the water and on the page. Learn more and book your berth today. Only 6 spots available.
