Last year, I had the opportunity to attend St Lucia’s first Health & Wellness Retreat in Soufriere. I’m happy to report that it is back again this year and looks to be even more successful than the first with leading experts such as Today Show nutrition and health expert Joy Bauer and actress and best-selling author Lindsay Wagner, to name just a few. Slated for October 4-7, the Second Annual Health & Wellness Retreat (starting at $750 per person), includes daily spa treatments, classes, receptions, and transportation from select hotels. Bauer will present her top ten tips for “Losing Weight and Keeping it Off,” as well as share information on how to find the fountain of youth in your shopping cart. Wagner, who co-authored The High Road to Health, will lead a sunrise group meditation. Dr. Stephen Brewer, medical director of Canyon Ranch Health Resorts (Tucson, AZ) will also be on-hand to discuss how to achieve “Optimal Wellness,” and Dani Devaux, creator of Blood, Sweat, and Tears fitness program, will lead multiple sunset beach boot camps. For yoga lovers, John Schumacher, founder and director of Unity Woods Yoga Center and one of only 13 certified advanced Iyengar yoga instructors in the U.S., will lead daily yoga sessions.
