Paul Gauguin Cruises Announces Experts for 2024 Tahiti Yoga & Wellness Cruise

NEW YORK, NY – January 10, 2024 – Paul Gauguin Cruises, French Polynesia’s destination expert, will host a complimentary Yoga & Wellness program for guests sailing on the April 13, 2024 Cook Islands and Society Islands itinerary aboard the award-winning m/s Paul Gauguin. From morning sun salutations on deck and beach yoga on the line’s private motu to workshops on overall wellness, movement, and posture, the program is enhanced by the region’s naturally rejuvenating tonic of sun, sea, and sand.

               Offered as part of The Gauguin’s Themed Enrichment Voyages, the 11-night cruise will be hosted by two experts in holistic wellness: Dr. Sarah Rothman, a Board Licensed Naturopath with expertise in the integration of Eastern and Western medicine; and Tammy Gibson, a leading yoga instructor specializing in the transformative power of intentional movement and mindfulness.

               “On its own, a French Polynesian voyage aboard The Gauguin is the perfect elixir for a well-balanced life, and the complimentary activities offered during our Yoga & Wellness Cruise add a restorative dimension to the overall experience for our guests,” said Susan Robison, General Manager, Sales and Marketing, for Paul Gauguin Cruises.

               Throughout the voyage, guests may enjoy the following: early morning yoga and Pilates classes aboard ship, and a beach yoga session on Motu Mahana/Taha’a (private islet); Posture Workshop on spinal movement; Gyrokinesis Workshop addressing energy pathways and range of motion through rhythmic movement sequences; lectures on aging well, detoxification and adrenal balance; and a signature Juice of the Day.
