The world’s finest ultra-luxury cruise line Seabourn has created a new fleet-wide mindful living program in partnership with The Onboard Spa by Steiner, offering guests a holistic spa and wellness experience that integrates physical, social, environmental and spiritual wellbeing.
The new Spa and Wellness with Dr Andrew Weil program will be the first of its kind at sea and will be led by the newly established position, The Wellness Guide. The Guide will be a certified yoga and meditation practitioner who will inspire and educate guests through various complimentary classes and gatherings throughout their voyage.
“This new wellness program will offer our guests an experience they simply won’t find anywhere else in the industry. By partnering with Dr Weil, a pioneer in integrative medicine, 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. We’re eager to share the full slate of offerings as a part of Seabourn Encore’s inaugural sailing as another component of the Extraordinary Worlds of Seabourn,” Seabourn President Richard Meadows said.
Dr Weil will launch the program during Seabourn Encore’s inaugural cruise in January. The program will be rolled out across the entire Seabourn fleet in 2017 and on Seabourn Ovation which launches in 2018. Dr Weil will sail on a different Seabourn ship each year where he will deliver a 60-minute lecture for guests and will also offer smaller informal group discussions. A separate team of wellness experts will also make regular visits to spa facilities throughout the Seabourn fleet.
Central to the program is the daily practice of meditation and yoga through a selection of complimentary sessions. Mindful Meditation and daily restorative yoga classes will focus on mantras and positive affirmations with classes also concentrating on various physical issues, such as yoga to heal back and joint pain, headaches and body alignment, as well as to enhance creativity, mental focus and happiness.
Integral to the wellness program are enriching complimentary Mind and Body seminars designed to educate guests on philosophies and practices that are aligned with the program’s mission. Each presentation will aim to empower guests with ideas and practices that enhance wellbeing and increase the awareness of connection between mind, body, environment and wellness including Spontaneous Happiness & Spontaneous Healing, Anti-inflammatory Foods, Healthy Aging and an Introduction to Mindful Meditation. One-on-one wellness sessions on select topics will also be available for a fee.
The launch of the Mind and Body Wellness Program with Dr Andrew Weil deepens the already wellness-focused Seabourn spa program that offers a wide range of body massages, facials, fitness and beauty treatments.
