The Caribbean island of Saint Lucia is holding an inaugural "Health and Wellness Retreat," Nov. 17-20, bringing together leading experts in yoga, tradition and lifestyle coaching to offer a well-being package.

Taking place in the island town of Soufriere, the retreat cost is $1,000. Participants buying before Oct. 15 get a $200 discount. Several area luxury accommodations are also offering special packages, including Jalousie Plantation, Fond Doux Holiday Plantation, Still Beach House, Hummingbird Beach Resort, Stonefield Estate Villa Resort & Spa, La Haut Plantation, Hotel Chocolat, Ladera Resort, Anse Chastanet Resort, Jade Mountain and Mago Estate Hotel.

The retreat will be structured around a series of seminars from people like Iyengar yoga teacher John Schumacher, feng shui consultant William Spear and Dr. Stephen Brewer, medical director at Canyon Ranch in Tucson. Participants can take part in yoga and feng shui workshops, pottery, art and photography classes, or get more active with hiking, climbing the famous Piton Mountains, kayaking, biking, snorkeling and bird watching. Guests can also indulge in spa treatments, starting with the fabled mineral and mud baths in Soufriere. Lunch will be an interactive event with local chefs
