The spa pros received Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Training—focus on Hatha yogic practices—over 40 days, during which time they learned about yoga philosophy, anatomy and physiology; teaching methodology and practices; and demonstrated their skills through practical sessions.
“We are delighted our staff have undertaken a yoga certification, allowing our guests a greater experience on board Viking Cruises,” says LivNordic brand manager Josefin Roth. “Well-being is a focal point of our LivNordic brand so it is important to instill this in as many areas of our work as possible.”
“The YTT for me was one more step on the journey of self-discovery! I have managed to achieve the physical, mental and emotional goals that I have set for myself. Of course it’s a continuous process but my body is more connected to my mind and spirit now,” adds newly certified spa pro Iulia Paula Isaicu. “It was a wonderful experience overall and a dream came true!”
