Seabourn said it will create a living program in partnership with its spa operator, Steiner, and integrative medicine pioneer Dr. Andrew Weil.

The Spa and Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil program will be launched on the inaugural cruise of the Seabourn Encore in January.

Weil is a Harvard-trained physician known for incorporating alternative therapies such as nutritional supplements, meditation and “spiritual” strategies into conventional treatment plans. He blogs for the Huffington Post and has appeared on TV shows such as “Larry King Live,” “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and “Today.”

Seabourn said central to the new program is the daily practice of meditation and yoga through a selection of complimentary sessions. Guests can experience Mindful Meditation, which will introduce positive affirmations and mantras they can reflect on throughout the day.

After debuting on Encore, the program will be rolled out to the other Seabourn ships in 2017 and on the Encore’s sister ship, Seabourn Ovation, in 2018.

Weil will sail on a different Seabourn ship each year where he will deliver a 60-minute lecture for guests and will lead smaller informal group discussions.
