There are myriad ways to enjoy your time on this Antarctic cruise, and we're offering you a special course on the Transcendental Meditation® technique as one of them.
Mind and Body
During this thirteen-day cruise, we will guide you on the path to Self discovery. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about the Transcendental Meditation® technique from our dedicated teachers, Yoga Asanas, a set of exercises to enliven Mind-Body coordination, and a breathing technique called Pranayama, which settles the physiology in preparation for transcending. For an additional fee, you can even learn TM on board.
The Transcendental Meditation technique is the most widely practiced, thoroughly researched, and extensively applied program of personal development in the world. It is a simple, natural, effortless procedure practiced 20 minutes twice each day while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed.
Hundreds of published research studies have found the TM technique to be highly effective for stress-related conditions, brain function, and cardiovascular health.
Pranayama is a simple breathing technique, which allows the mind to come to rest and puts the body in a relaxed state, especially before meditation. Alternate nostril breathing (sukh pranayama) is a traditional practice that balances the left and right hemispheres of the brain, and calms the whole nervous system. Coherence is produced between the left and right sides of the brain. At the same time, energy reserves are activated, one feels physically very light and clear in mind.
Learn to relieve stress, develop flexibility and youthfulness, improve sleep, balance digestion and weight, and deepen the experience of silence and expansion of consciousness through these Maharishi Yoga Asanas. Whether expert or beginner, these sessions provide the most authentic and profound understanding and practice of yoga asanas.
