Star Clippers to Feature Three ‘Yoga and Meditation’ Theme Cruises on Star Flyer in Summer 2012
Guests sailing aboard Star Flyer on May 19, June 17 and August 18 will have an opportunity to take part in Star Clippers’ special yoga and meditation program. Under the direction of yoga expert Christel Vollmer, the program will highlight complimentary daily yoga and meditation sessions out on deck under thousands of square feet of billowing sails — the ultimate relaxing environment for the body and soul, enhanced by the fresh sea air.
Each sailing will begin with Vollmer’s “Introduction to Yoga” class and every day thereafter two classes will be held: 60 minutes of power yoga in the morning and a 40-minute wind-down class at sunset, followed by meditation. Each class is open to all guests and suitable for all levels; no prior experience is required.
Vollmer also will give lectures on yoga for slimming, yoga for back care and power yoga, also known as ashtanga, which is a powerful style of yoga based on a sequence of easy-to-learn movements called asanas. All classes and lectures are optional, and additional ship activities will be offered as part of the standard daily program.
Vollmer brings many years of teaching experience to Star Clippers, having trained under Bryan Kest, yoga guru to stars including Madonna, Cindy Crawford and Sting.
For guests who want to follow a healthy or vegetarian diet during the sailing, Star Clippers’ breakfast buffets feature an abundance of fresh, seasonal fruits, and guests can select from a variety of salads at lunchtime and vegetarian options at dinner.
