Mind­ful Liv­ing

Porthole Cruise Magazine - - Trending Now -

BE­YOND EAT­ING RIGHT AND WORK­ING out, mind­ful­ness has taken on even more im­por­tance in our overly con­nected world. That’s just one rea­son that Seabourn, in part­ner­ship with The On­board Spa by Steiner, in­tro­duced a fleetwide mind­ful liv­ing pro­gram with in­te­gra­tive medicine pioneer Dr. An­drew Weill. In­cor­po­rat­ing phys­i­cal, so­cial, en­vi­ron­men­tal, and spir­i­tual well-be­ing, the pro­gram is led by a well­ness guide, a cer­ti­fied yoga and med­i­ta­tion prac­ti­tioner who ed­u­cates and in­spires guests through­out a va­ri­ety of classes and ac­tiv­i­ties.

In ad­di­tion to daily med­i­ta­tion and yoga ses­sions, guests can also take ad­van­tage of com­pli­men­tary Mind and Body Sem­i­nars cre­ated by Dr. Weill and Steiner’s well­ness pro­fes­sion­als. High­lights in­clude Spon­ta­neous Hap­pi­ness & Spon­ta­neous Heal­ing, Anti-In­flam­ma­tory Foods, Healthy Ag­ing, and In­tro­duc­tion to Mind­ful Med­i­ta­tion. Dr. Weill will also sail on a Seabourn ship each year where he will present a 60-minute lec­ture as well as par­tic­i­pate in more in­ti­mate in­for­mal group dis­cus­sions. A team of well­ness ex­perts will also make reg­u­lar vis­its to the Seabourn fleet.

“This new well­ness pro­gram will of­fer our guests an ex­pe­ri­ence they sim­ply won’t find any­where else in the in­dus­try,” says Richard Mead­ows, pres­i­dent of Seabourn. “By part­ner­ing with Dr. Weill, we will de­liver an even greater de­gree of mind and body pro­grams that en­sure you can break away, re­lax, and re­ju­ve­nate while you travel with us.”

Small ship cruise lines are get­ting in on the act as well. This year, Un­Cruise Ad­ven­tures launched three well­ness-themed cruises in Alaska and one in Mex­ico’s Sea of Cortes. The cruises fea­ture cer­ti­fied train­ers, nu­tri­tion­ists, skincare ex­perts, and yo­gis from Life Time—The Healthy Way of Life Com­pany.

“A well­ness theme is a per­fect fit for our guests who en­joy be­ing ac­tive and main­tain­ing a healthy life­style while on va­ca­tion,” says Un­Cruise cap­tain and CEO Dan Blan­chard. As we look to dis­con­nect from all the un­healthy dis­trac­tions in life, a well­ness-themed cruise cer­tainly helps to make health and well-be­ing a pri­or­ity.
