This October tall ship specialist Star Clippers will introduce two new yoga and meditation themed cruises to its current program.

All cruises include two free daily Ashtanga yoga and meditation sessions on deck morning and evening.

These will be hosted by Christel Vollmer, who will also deliver lectures on the philosophy of yoga and advice for practice at home.

The Tyrhennian departs Monte Carlo on October 1 2011 and calls at Calvi, Bonifacio, Costa Smeralda, Giglio (Italy), Lerici (for Florence) and St Tropez, ending in Cannes.

The second cruise will depart on 8 October 2011 from Cannes and call at Mahon, Pollenca, Formentera and Cartagena. This itinerary includes two days at sea for extra relaxation and contemplation.

Both cruise prices start from £1,295 per person, including port taxes, all yoga classes and all meals on board on the ship. Prices exclude flights.

Star Clippers welcomes vegetarians or healthy eaters with specially designed meal plans.
