Yoga & Wellness Excursion for Cruise Ship Patrons

Are you looking for a day of serenity on your cruise?  Look no further, Upachaya Eco-Lodge & Wellness Resort is your answer.

Come join us for a day of yoga, wellness, and tranquility, away from the crowds.  Allow yourself the time to rejuvenate your spirit, re-energize your body, and bring peace to your mind.

This excursion begins with our driver picking you up at the cruise ship port in his air conditioned van.  Upon your arrival to Upachaya you will be greeted in our parking area, and provided a botanical tour of our gardens down to our yoga studio.  Here you will participate in a 75 minute yoga class with meditation.  After class enjoy a healthy meal with beverages lounging by the pool, or in our Mangrove Center.  All of this, with all applicable taxes is $55.00 per person.  Smoothies made from local seasonal fruits and vegetables as well as alcoholic beverages are available for an additional fee.

Our yoga class consists of Kundalini Yoga with meditation.  Kundalini yoga is the “yoga of awareness”, integrating hand positions (mudras), breath (pranayam), posture (asanas), mantras (sound – chanting), and motion.  All classes begin with an opening chant.  We move into a warm-up session that releases and stretches the spine and improves your flexibility.  We follow with a kriya (a set of movements or asana series) done in conjunction with the pranayam, or breath work. We end with a deep meditation and closing mantra.  Be prepared to release and unlock barriers within yourself and experience joy and serenity.  Awaken your personal power to excel.

This class is appropriate for all levels and abilities from beginner through advanced.  This is a universal practice.  Mats are provided.

Wear clothing made to move.  Bring your swimsuit if you plan to enjoy the pool, a towel, and if you choose a change of clothes.  You may also want to bring along funds for tips, and or purchases available on site (i.e.: all natural body products made at Upachaya, local jewelry, smoothies, and other beverages).

Your hostess and teacher is Barbara.  She is a Kundalini Instructor certified through IKYTA (International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association), and RYT (Registered Yoga Teachers).  She earned her certification at the Niketan Parmath Ashram in Rishikesh, India.  She is also a certified Aqua Yoga Instructor, and teaches Yin Yoga as well.

This tour is approximately 4 1/2 hours in length from the time we pick you up until we return you back to your ship.  To join us, click here to make your reservation.
