Taking a few minutes to mindfully relax can help bring calm and composure to our daily routines and quite possibly extend our lives. And yet many of us whizz through the day focusing a bit more on 'what's next' and a bit less on 'what I need'. So why not start a mindful breathing practice while on holiday at Windjammer Landing?
Dr. Andrew Weil has three breathing exercises that you can try anywhere. We suggest somewhere in St. Lucia, possibly overlooking the Carribbean Sea. But we're pretty sure this works at the office or somewhere quiet at home before the rest of the family awakes.
Twenty years ago, we were in need of a wedding photographer. A young man stepped in to shoot the wedding as he was a) unemployed and b) pursued photography at university . The bride loved the photos. And the young man? Well, he's now known as one of St. Lucia's most famous faces.
This is Kirk Elliot's recent blog his ideal Tour of the Pitons.
No trip to St Lucia is complete without a visit to The Pitons. These twin peaks that loom out of the sea like the bosom of a Greek Goddess can leave you as stunned as if they wereвЂ¦
The Pitons are in Soufriere which is often referred to as the visitor capital of Saint Lucia. In fact this is the same Soufriere that is home to the Volcano Mud Baths that we visited yesterdayвЂ¦
However why jump on a St Lucia Party Cruise with one of the many catamarans that will take you to Soufriere by sea and experience the St LuciaвЂ™s majestic Pitons from the ocean-side approachвЂ¦
The view is stunningly breathtaking, especially wheny you come round that last outcrop of land before entering the Soufriere Bay and then suddenly there they are looming before you вЂ“ Twin peaks of sheer beauty
And should you get to see the Pitons by land instead of by sea, one of my favourite, and less frequented views is from the restaurant at La Haut, a small property about 2 miles above the Soufriere town
However any which way you view them the Pitons are quite simply awe inspiring!
Be sure to take lots of picturesвЂ¦
