Natural Awakenings San Diego

A Voyage to Well-Being

Sep 01, 2016 06:41PM

What if you could learn all you need to know about getting healthy and staying healthy during a one-week Caribbean vacation. Well, it’s possible! In fact, National Geographic Traveler has chosen Holistic Holiday at Sea as “one of the 100 best worldwide vacations to enrich your life.”

This unique event is the brainchild of Miami health educator Sandy Pukel. Pukel had been doing health educational programs in Miami for four decades when he decided to take his event to sea. His first cruise attracted 400 people; over a decade later, his educational program has exploded and is now one of the largest holistic events in the country, hosting 1,800 like-minded cruisers.

With 45 teachers, 145 classes, a delicious vegan menu (with regular ship menu options available) and a social/party almost every night, the program has something for everyone interested in health and longevity. Guests choose daily from a wide spectrum of classes and workshops ranging from several types of yoga, fitness and meditation to presentations on integrative medicine, plantbased nutrition, ten cooking classes and many lectures given by some of the world’s leading authorities in holistic health, including Drs. T. Colin Campbell, Michael Greger, Neal Barnard, Michael Klaper and Caldwell Esselstyn Jr. Add all this to four exotic ports of call on the upcoming March 11 to 18, 2017, sailing, and you can see why National Geographic gave Holistic Holiday at Sea such high marks. According to founder Pukel, “The event is a relaxing vacation/educational experience that has profoundly changed thousands of lives.”
