Sailing lifts body, mind and spirit

IF you want to get the best out of yoga, try the open deck of a Clipper ship, preferably under billowing sails at sunrise or sunset.
 
That's the advice of Christel Vollmer, yoga guru to celebrities including Madonna, Cindy Crawford and Sting, who says the high levels of oxygen at sea provide the ideal environment.
 
Christel will join several Star Clippers sailings this year to teach the intense Power Yoga style which detoxifies and strengthens the body and improves flexibility, mobility and concentration for all age levels.
 
She will also teach Slim Yoga and Healthy Eating (for losing weight and better posture) and Yoga for Back Care.
 
Supplementing the healthy yoga theme, Star Flyer will offer some vegetarian meals at dinner, and plenty of fruit and salads with breakfast and lunch.
 
After a series of yoga classes, lectures and meditation sessions on board the flagship Royal Clipper during a 16-night trans Atlantic crossing from Barbados to Malaga, Christel will continue on the ship's five-night cruise from Malaga (on April 23) to Civitavecchia (Rome). Prices start at $2270 including port taxes, and all meals and entertainment on board.
 
She will then move to the 170-passenger tall ship Star Flyer which will be operating its inaugural sailing season in Scandinavian and Baltic waters.
 
The complimentary yoga classes are available on three cruises: Hamburg to Oslo, seven nights on May 19 (from $3475); Warnemunde to Kiel five nights, June 17 (from $2385) and Oslo to Hamburg, seven nights, August 18 (from $3475).
