2018 Women’s Symposium Cruise
Learn to empower your mind, body and spirit

This retreat is all about you and strengthening your own personal power. This cruise is an opportunity to connect with other like minded people on a fun 3 night, 4 day cruise that includes yoga, meditation, and astrology workshops. Like any other cruise you will get to take in the sun and fun of all the activities of the ship with the added bonus of the special classes and workshops we will prepare just for you.

We are also planning on a special yoga practice and meditation that will be held on the beach at port.


This cruise is an all inclusive retreat including:

  • 3 night, 4 day cruise
  • empowering yoga classes and meditations with Krista Ghaffarian
  • astrology workshops with Kelly Lowe
  • taxes, port charges and gratuities
  • all meals at sea
  • open bar


Kelly Lowe is an astrological counselor, teacher and newly published author of An Astrologer’s Journey. Her expertise lies in helping her clients understand themselves better and cope with difficult cycles in their life. Timing is everything, and the use of astrology can be instrumental in selecting the right time to accomplish your goals.

She has been studying and practicing astrology for over 30 years. She has taught astrology at Seminole State College, Daytona Beach State College and studied ancient astrology on the Greek Isle of Kos.

Kelly Lowe will be doing two empowering workshops on the cruise.

How the Sun Signs Adapt and Process Loss

Kelly Lowe is the author of “The Sun Always Rises” , How To Thrive In Time of Loss. She will share her 30 + years of astrological counseling experience as she talks about how the Sun Signs adapt and process loss and what they can do help them through the healing process.

Show Me the Glint of the Moon

Kelly has made a life long study of observing and following the phases of the moon. In her 2nd workshop she will talk about how instrumental and import the lunar cycle can be when planning your daily activates.

You won’t want to miss either one of her empowering workshops were you can interact and ask questions.

In addition to her workshops which are inclusive with the cruise, Kelly will be available to schedule 1/2 hr. private consultations at an additional “cruise special” fee of $50. Checks or cash are preferred. She will also need your birth information prior to the cruise, date, place and time of birth if available on your birth certificate.



Krista Ghaffarian


Krista is a Register Yoga Teacher who has made it her life’s work to share the practice of yoga with others. Her journey to yoga began in 2001 as a certified group fitness instructor through AFAA. She absolutely loved teaching and sharing the benefits of a healthy lifestyle with others. As she strived to find other ways to support people in their own road to wellness she became a certified personal trainer through ISSA. Through personal study and practice, Krista ultimately found her passion in teaching Yoga. Krista has been teaching Yoga since 2004 and received her Kripalu Yoga 200-hour teacher training through Discovery Yoga in St. Augustine in 2008. Most recently, she received her Level 1 Qigong teaching certification through the Supreme Science Center. Krista’s teaching style is strongly aligned with the Kripalu teaching of compassion and awareness. She loves working with beginners and teaching gentler classes where the focus is on getting to know oneself.

Krista Ghaffarian will be offering yoga classes that empower by opening and balancing the chakras through the practice of asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing), and meditation. Through the combination of movement and stillness we have the opportunity to embrace and connect to our personal power and to speak our truth.
