Live Fitness and Mindfulness Classes

We’re planning to have 1-2 live fitness classes each day rotating between yoga, functional fitness, resistance training, and Qi Gong. Our popular Holistic Holiday at Sea cruise instructors, who are all experts in their own right, will be leading the classes.


Yoga


Beginner Vinyasa Flow with Angelica Kushi

Feel awesome alignment with a foundational Beginner Vinyasa Flow Yoga class for newbies and life-long yogis alike. Angelica Kushi, a Holistic Holiday at Sea yoga teacher and health and wellness educator, will be guiding these fun, energizing, and educational classes. Angelica’s formal training is from the Kushi Institute, the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and extensive studies in Yoga and Tibetan Buddhism with the Asian Classic Institute and Yoga Studies Institute.

Chair Yoga with Alese Jones

Chair yoga, a gentle and safe form of yoga, is easy on the body and offers the same body-mind benefits of a traditional yoga class, including reduced stress and enhanced relaxation. Alese Jones, who has over 25 years of experience in asana practice and 10 years of experience in meditation, will be leading these classes.

If you are experiencing physical limitations or don’t want to get down on the floor, this is a great class option for you. Postures and gentle stretches are done sitting or standing with the support of a chair for balance. Alese received her teacher training in 1982 from Swami Satchidananda’s Integral Yoga Certification. Since then she has studied extensively with Sarah Powers from whom she received her Yin/Mindfulness training. She is also certified in Ashtanga, Primary Series with David Swensen.


Functional Fitness with Robert Cheeke

If you’ve been on the cruise, then you know there’s only one Robert Cheeke! Join champion vegan bodybuilder Robert Cheeke and learn how to complete total body exercises for a full-body workout without any special equipment. Learn fitness and diet and nutrition tips all while having a fun workout. Exercises will be at varying levels of intensity, based on each individual’s interest and experience.

As a two-time natural bodybuilding champion, Robert is considered one of VegNews magazine’s Most Influential Vegan Athletes. He tours around the world sharing his story of transformation from a skinny farm kid to champion vegan bodybuilder. Robert is the founder and president of Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness. He writes books, gives lectures, and maintains the popular website VeganBodybuilding.com.
