Health and Fitness
Talk about the ultimate way to relax body and mind! Star Clipper will offer daily meditation and yoga classes on the cruise line's flagship 227 passenger Royal Clipper voyages across the Atlantic Ocean in spring and autumn 2014.
Yoga teacher Christel Vollmer will hold daily Astanga yoga, or power yoga, classes in the morning. There will be a second session just before sunset. It will include meditation.
Christel will also deliver lectures on the philosophy of yoga and advice for practice at home.
Breakfast buffets will offer fresh, seasonal fruits. There will be an array of salads at lunch and vegetarian choices at dinner.
Classes will be suitable for all levels, and no prior yoga experience is required. There is no upper age limit for practising yoga.
Other activities on board the luxurious sailing ship will include story-telling, classes in knot-tying, origami, and dancing as well as talent shows, movies, and music quizzes.
The ship has large teak decks, three swimming pool, informal dining outlets, a Tropical Bar, and a piano bar. There are two other sailing ships in the Star Clipper fleet.
