Yoga Cruising with Star Clipper

Star Clipper Yoga and Wellbeing Cruise is absolutely one of the most exciting adventures in a wide palette of our journeys. This unique experience is hard to explain, you need to discover it for yourself. Star Clipper is a fantastic sailing ship. On one hand, this mesmerizing ship enchants with its traditional and romantic spirit that makes you travel back in time to the 19th century. On the other hand, Star Clipper has all the modern comfort and amenities of a private yacht.  It’s a dream come true for all sailing enthusiasts.

This renowned sailing ship stands out from many others.  It offers an authentic sailing experience, customers and staff mingle together, plenty of water sports, lots of places to hide and chill and my most memorable experience was when the hoisting of the sails and sailing out into the sunset.  Truly magically.  For this reason we chose one of these magnificent sailing ships to be the host to our Yoga and wellbeing Cruise. Just imagine the wind playing with your hair, turquoise sea around you, tranquil and calm atmosphere as you find your inner peace. Away from stressful daily routine, be free to find your true self and let it flow.

This year we were on the Star flyer with a small group of people for our yoga and wellbeing cruise and we all had unforgettable time sailing across the Mediterranean seas.  We talked with many people and we are happy to share their impression, enthusiasm and positive feedback about the cruise.

According to their words, what makes this cruising sensational is the unique and ultimate feeling of freedom and peace. They enjoyed visiting many alluring places and meeting interesting people. No matter how different, all these people were all enthusiastic about sailing, yoga and discovering new horizons.

There’s an old good saying – A picture is worth a thousand words. For this reason, we decided to share a few photos from this incredible journey with you.

Let’s take a look at the photos and enjoy together and who knows, next year you will see your photos here.

 Nowadays, yoga pops up as an answer to many problems. For example, if you are under pressure, work too much, people say – go to a yoga class. If you have problems in your relationship, job, etc. – go to yoga. If you are overweight, feel tiredness, fatigue, lack of energy, again, the perfect answer is – go to yoga. A few days ago, my neighbour, a type of ‘ SheKnowsAll’ person, told me she has been practicing yoga for some time because – she knows – yoga is good for her health. Well, that’s definitely a sign. Seriously, I’m a bit lazy when it comes to physical exercise and Meghan Trainor’s All about that bass is all about me! So, these days I’m thinking about discovering the magical power of yoga myself. You know, because it’s good for my health! Maybe I sound a bit ironic but I’m definitely not. In my opinion, responsible people should do their best to connect their mind and body and keep themselves in good shape. Mens sana in corpore sano.meditate-1851165_960_720

I was truly dazzled when I read all about the benefits of yoga. It can really change your life. There’s a wide range of reasons to start with yoga, from – it boosts your immune system and improves your general health, helps with pain relief, brings your body/mind/soul into harmony, etc. In general, it makes you feel more comfortable with your inner self and logically, this leads to better communication with the outer world and its challenges.

On the other hand, yoga should become a significant part of your life in order to enjoy the full benefits of it.

For example, if you love to travel, you can do both travel and practice yoga. There are loads of amazing yoga retreats. They offer different things but all have something in common – picture book, simple and almost intact natural surroundings, where everything serves to one idea, to bring you back to yourself and make you become stronger and more positive.

For instance, if you choose to travel to some exotic destination where you can enjoy both yoga and sea issues such as, fabulous beaches, cruising, sailing…it’s possible. You’re only one click/ phone call away from it. I read a lot about yoga retreats and if I start practicing yoga seriously, then my perfect holiday would be Kerala Backwaters mixed with yoga. Absolutely fantastic! The wonderful sea, impeccable beaches, and relaxing yoga classes…Don’t want to call it an Earth paradise – I will!South India

Current life trends take their toll so many people have problems with their weight, eating habits, lack of physical exercise and depression. Instead of taking medicines, it’s better to try yoga healing. There are tons of holidays that cover all these problems and, yes, they’re affordable. So, dig into the search, and find your perfect match. Is it yoga wellbeing, spa, detox, or yoga mixed with juice retreats? Spending less time with your friends/ family? There are wonderful family/ friendly yoga retreats where you can strengthen your family’s bonds. On the other hand, if you seek to find your peace and solitude, then you should try to reach Zen in some of the Buddhist centres where you can practice yoga and meditation in order to reach the higher level of wisdom as well as your inner peace.balance-1842292_1920

This is my personal choice. What’s yours? Choose a yoga retreat that best suits your needs, pack your mat and let yourself into the magic of yoga! I will.

We all have a friend or two that are yoga fans. You’ve read a few articles, here and there, about yoga and its benefits. On one hand, there are many misconceptions about yoga, but on the other hand, it’s a great thing if you truly let yourself into the spiritual world of yoga.yoga4 It’s not just the practice, it’s the whole concept, lifestyle, including eating habits, state of mind, way of thinking, values. It offers quite different perspective of micro world (inner world of our own being) and macro world (outer world- everything around us). I’ve read somewhere a fantastic quote – ‘health is wealth, a piece of mind happiness, yoga shows the way’. The bare truth itself.
